i have a copy of the graphic novel as well, but i did not enjoy it as much as i had hoped.. to much of the same pictures that are in the movie, and Alice looked awfull! instead of looking graceful and beautiful she looked like a prepubescent boy :| and what was with Bella's wardrobe? to much frill and lace.. :geek:

Is it true? I still haven't see the movie... I'm uncomfortable with the idea of actors claiming lines that I read hundred of time... :oops:

and Alice looked awfull! instead of looking graceful and beautiful she looked like a prepubescent boy :|


:lol: But I like the lenght of her hair... It's closer of what I imagined of someone escaping from a institution than the pictures of the movie from what I see browsing the lex... :) What do you think?

and what was with Bella's wardrobe? to much frill and lace.. :geek:


Ok, I totally agree on this one... :lol: It's a little bit too girly for the Bella that I have in mind... :) But, may I admit that it gave me new ideas for my own wardrobe? :roll:

O.k. I change of subjet... I just read the "Breaking Dawn Concert Tour-Seattle Q&A" in the section "Correspondance with Stephenie"...

Q: When is Midnight Sun going to be published?

A: I want you all to know that this may not happen right away. I have for the past three years been under deadlines. It’s been rough. So I’m planning on taking my time and writing when the spirit strikes. Now that could mean it won’t take very long at all. I wrote Twilight very quickly but I don’t want to make any promises. So I can’t give you exact dates on this but when I have a workable rough draft I will have a sense of how long because the editing process is fairly standard and I will be able to let you know when that is going to be.

I agree with you there. I haven't had the urge to visit the site either or actually pick up the book, I would have liked for MS to have been released before this one but on another note I'm going to get the book because it's part of the series and I've heard it was really good but I'm going to hold off reading it until I finish my other book series.

Haha! Same here! I was at a local grocery store at 11:30 at night waiting for it. :roll: Its a bit pathetic, but thats ok. I was dying for a Stephenie novel that I could read.

However, I don't ever feel the urge to ever read Midnight Sun anymore like I used to. I don't have to consciously avoid the tab on Stephenie's website everytime I'm on the computer. I'll wait it out happily, and when she releases it, I'll be bragging that I get a whole new novel by my favorite author to read while they'll already know half of it. :)

Hello dear Midnight sun virgin! :)
I hope your abstinence is still going well! :)

Stephenie have talk about Midnight sun in her last interview... Just here.But caution, there is a spoiler in this interview... :o

A little "safe" excerpt just to make you drool... :)

I know that’s what everyone cares about. I also know that the right answer would be for me to say “Oh yah, it’s done! And it’ll be out next month!” But that’s not true. It’s also not true that I’ve got a ton of work done on it, and that’s what I’m working on. What’s true is that I’m really burned out on vampires. And, I don’t want to write it badly. So I want to wait until I’m excited about the material again, and I’m excited about Edward, and that it’s something that’s motivating. You know, when a story is keeping me up at night, and I’m waking up at 4 am in the morning and thinking ‘Yes! That is what is what should happen in this moment!’ Then that is when I can write with happiness! So, right now it feels like homework… it really does. And when things feel like homework they go very, very slowly for me. So it’s still not a “It’s not gonna happen!” I want to do it when I can do it right. You know, I have my share of human stubbornness, and I have to tell you, it’s a little bit hard when people are like “This is the only thing you can do, and it’s the only thing we care about!” And, you’re kind of like a three year old, you want to be like “I’m gonna do what I wanna do!” Yah. “You’re not the boss of me!” So my mom has backed off a little bit. Actually, I was at The Fray concert, and I was hanging out with the guys backstage. They’re really cool, and I was talking to Isaac about it. He was like, “I really want you to do that!” And I was like “Oh my gosh! Come on!” You know I can’t get away from it anywhere. And, we talked about stubbornness and reverse psychology. I have this great thing he signed for me, it says “To Stephenie, Don’t work on that stupid book! Nobody wants it anyway!” I have it by my computer. That really is the right direction to go with me, because I’m like “Huh! Maybe I should do it! I’ll show you!” Psychology! Anyway, that’s Midnight Sun! so, that should disappoint everyone!

I wouldnt ever read midnight sun until its released as a BOOK.

i think its horribly wrong that someone took advantage of dear Stephenie like that :(
she worked so hard on that, and then someone betrays her trust :(
