Meyer Mania

This week we received more exciting news to make this winter a little more bearable. Not only do we have the opening of The Spiderwick Chronicles to look forward to next week and Brisingr to look forward to in September, now we can anxiously await August as well. Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final novel in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, will be released at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, August 2nd. The cover art will be revealed in the Eclipse Special Edition, which goes on sale May 31; that edition will also contain the new book’s first chapter.

The movie version of Twilight will be released on December 12 starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson , who you may recognize as Cedric from Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire.

May 6th Meyer’s first adult novel, The Host, will be released. Is this something you are anxious to read while waiting for Breaking Dawn? Will this become an instant bestseller because of Meyer’s popularity with the young adult crowd or will it fail for the same reason? What do you think?
