Stephenie Meyer's New Books?

I first read Twilight the day it came out, simply because my school librarian was a fan of mine (always checked out six or seven books at a time) and she had received advanced copies of the book to sample and was kind enough to lend me one.

At the time I felt the book to be addicting, but at the same time I found myself skimming pages, because Bella Swan, well, she was a talker!

So when the Twilight craze finally hit the world, I already had my fill of the vampire story and didn't really care about it - though, I did really enjoy the films, not good they are (huh?).

But recently, Stephenie Meyer has announced potential books that she is working on/considering.

One being the sequel to The Host and one being the completion of Midnight Sun, another one possibly being a Jacob and Nessie story, another being a possible 1,000 pages story of mermaids and one, the one that seems to be the most likely : “It’s a fantasy that takes place in another world where people are using bows and arrows and swords. There’s a little bit of magic, but it’s a very limited form of magic. The characters are human, and some have the ability to use magic and some don’t. It’s pretty dark. People die. The main character is a 17-year-old girl, and she’s kind of cool.” said, Steph Meyer on the set of Breaking Dawn.

I am not a huge fan of Stephenie's writing, but I do enjoy her ability to trap her readers, and I think the latter story would be a very good idea and I hope she will have a book out in the near future!!

What are your thoughts?

  1. Honestly I am no a huge fan of the Twilight books, I read Twilight just after they'd announced the movie and I couldn't really see how they would fit was in the book into a two hour film. I love love the films, though I couldn't care for the books.

    There isn't really that much story in them to make me want to read them.

    On her new books, I'd possably be interested in the mermaid book but only if she skims in down. 1000 pages is just to much!

  3. I would like to read most of them to be honest but mostly the story of Nessie and Jacob. I also enjoyed the host so a sequal to the would be good as well.

  5. I love Stephanie as well and I will read anything she writes. She has a wonderful way of developing ALL of the characters so that you truly feel you know each of them and it brings you closer to the world she has created.

  7. The book you're referring to is from a spoof in Vanity Fair of her Twilight series characters, here's an excerpt:

    “Are you sure you’re not just feeling the sting of my electric arrow?” a deep voice asked. Ella and Ethan turned around and saw Jakob with a “k” standing next to a really old tree. Ethan looked down; he had been punctured by an arrow. He didn’t even feel it go in, so full was his heart from Ella’s love.

    “Jakob with a ‘k’!” Ethan cried. “You’ll never take Ella from me!”

  8. She has to release something! I can't get into the host. Too deap. I afraid she will loose her fan base. Especially since there is a full year between Break Dawn movies.

  10. I don't understand how anyone cannot like Stephenie Meyers work. i read Twilight when i was 10 and it opened my world to books, since then I've read hundreds of books, but no one could even be compared to Stephenie's books. I was always first whenever she published the next book in twilight and the host and i always called my friends or even posted it on Facebook when I held the new book in my hands because THEY ARE SO GREAT! The thing about Midnight Sun is that I knew she was writing it, but i waited patiently for her to finish it. 3 years later i started to wonder what took her so long so i went on her webpage and saw the whole leak thing, and i have to say i was disappointed, but still patient. But then i started reading the 12 chapters and i was hooked. When i finished next morning ( i had litteralyread all night long) i felt the urge to cry. And as always when i either see one of the movies or read a little bit of the books, i have to read them all over again, it's like i can't get enough. But this time it was different. Whenever i read that Edward smiled of something or anything really i imagined what he was thinking. And sometimes i laughed at the things i guessed, but the problem is, they aren't correct. I can't know for sure that that was what he was thinking and it bugs the crap out of me.. So I check in on her webpage and on google just if something new comes up. And for the other books, i don't really care when they come, i just wish she would finish Midnight Sun first!

  11. I am a twi-mom and I love the all the books in the Twilight Saga - more so than the movies - so far Breaking Dawn is not cutting it - this director - as acclaimed as he may be - is out of his lane - there no emotional depth in his recreation of the books! He's great at the action stuff but he's no Catherine Hardwick - I am sorry - but she had a shoe string budget and still managed to hook the fans with an intensity that made Twilight - the best loved of all three/ four movies. I also saw brief excerpts of Stephenie's upcoming book and I really hope it's not that juvenile because it did not grab me - as for a follow-up story between Jacob and Nessie - I would really love to see that - keeping my fingers crossed.

  12. I know she is tired of the vampire thing, but I'm afraid that is what her fans want. The Host was a good book, after you got past the first half. It took me months to force myself into it. Once into the second half, you kind of understand why you had to read the first. It was a cool story in the end, but it did not leave me craving a sequel. I'm not saying it's bad, the story just didn't grab me like Twilight. Stephenie struck gold with the vampires and left us obsessing for more. I hope she continues the story we all fell in love with. Did the Volturi really just give up without a fight? Is the story REALLY over?

  13. Stephenie Meyer created a once-in-a-lifetime saga, that will stand as the "Gone With The Wind" of our youthful generation for years and years to come. With that incredible achievement comes responsibility - to her fans, to the people who've grown to love the comradery and relationships between her most important characters. Stephenie should pursue as much of a story line as possible for Twilight - how can she say there's no more to Bella and Edward, whenever clearly, there's so much more that can happen, should happen, in their story? If nothing else, the Midnight Sun book needs to be completed simply for Meyer's amazing ability to pick up and explain the tiniest of details that played a role in Twilight - things that are suddenly so explainable from Edward's point of view, that had left Bella guessing... And obviously, we all want to know more about Renesmee and Jacob. Come on, Stephenie - give your breath-holding fans a break and write for them - write for those characters from your dream that filled your head and made you sit down and write a book about them - have their voices gone silent inside of you? Is there nothing left to be said? Twilight = Edward & Bella = Renesmee + Jacob = interested fans all over the world and a mega-million dollar dynasty of Twilight memorabilia, books, movies, etc. Will your adoring public ever get tired of it? I think not.

  17. She may not be the best writer, but the books really grabbed me. Though as a fantasy reader I have to be honest; there are SO many other writers out there that are FAR worse! It strikes me as odd that the complaint I hear most about her is that her writing is bad. The genre is chalk full of crappy plots, and stories that just dont work.

    I think the movies are awful. Perhaps if they were longer and the actors could portray some emotion they would have been better.
