After someone leaked an unfinished draft of Midnight Sun, what would have been the fifth book in Stephenie Meyer’s uber-popular vampire series, the Twilight author abandoned her plans to finish it and stated that Breaking Dawn would be the last she would write about Bella and Edward’s romance.
However, Meyer left the possibility of a fifth book open during an appearance on Oprah to promote The Twilight Saga: New Moon, the film based on her second book that’s set to open to screaming fans nationwide this Friday, November 20. Twi-hard fans shouldn’t start celebrating yet, however; Meyer stated that it would be a while before she would write a fifth book, if ever.
“I am a little burned out on vampires right now … I think I need a little break. I might go spend some time with my aliens. I might do something completely different. I’ve got to cleanse the palate. I may come back to it. I did envision it as a longer series. But I wrapped Breaking Dawn in a way that I felt satisfied with, so if that moment didn’t come, I’d be okay,” she said. (EW)
