Stephanie Meyer Announces New 'Twilight' Novel Will Be Released August 4

Well, despite coronavirus and murder hornets, 2020 might not be a total loss -- because Stephanie Meyer just announced that a new Twilight novel will be released on August 4th!

It's the long-awaited prequel Midnight Sun, which is the ultimately the same story we're already familiar with, except it was written from Edward's perspective.

I am very excited to finally, finally announce the release of 'Midnight Sun' on August 4. It's a crazy time right now and I wasn't sure if this was the right time to put this book out, but some of you have been waiting for just so, so long. It didn't seem fair to make you wait anymore. Sorry about the bad timing. Hopefully this book can be a distraction from the real world," Meyer said in a message to Good Morning America. "I'm so excited to finally be able to share it with you."
