Just when you thought it was safe to move back to the Washington woods, Stephanie Meyer is at it again with the release of a special 10th anniversary edition of Twilight, the novel that started it all. The special re-release, which will be out Oct. 7, will include exclusive bonus content.
“It’s amazing to me that 10 years have passed since Twilight was first published. For me, this anniversary is a celebration of the fans, with all of their incredible passion and dedication. I’m excited to get to spend time with them again,” Meyer said on news of the special edition.
“I felt the same thrill reading this special anniversary edition as I did when I read the manuscript a decade ago. I’m pleased we have this opportunity for devoted fans to relive the extraordinary Twilight experience, as well as for a new generation of readers to discover it for the very first time,” Megan Tingley, the public and EVP of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers added.
Since it was published in 2005, Twilight became a New York Times best-seller and spawned into a blockbuster film franchise. The series, which featured sequels Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, has sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
Could this be the dawn of a new Twilight? Will we soon be hearing from Bella and Edward’s daughter, Renesmee Cullen?
Twilighters will just have to wait and see…
