Author Stephenie Meyer has been planning to publish a fifth book in her Twilight saga that would explore the events of the series from Edward’s point of view.  After several unfinished chapters from that manuscript were leaked online, however, Meyer announced that Midnight Sun has been put on hold indefinitely.

Is the series really done for good?  Will Meyer change her mind?  Is this just a clever marketing ploy?

Read Meyer’s announcement on her website.

Take a look at the petition some of Meyer’s fans have started.

Actor Josh Hutcherson has been chosen as the official spokesperson for Teen Read Week 2008.  15-year old Josh has appeared in many movies, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Bridge to Terabithia.  He recently finished filming Cirque du Freak, based on the series by Darren Shan.  Here’s a brief excerpt from a recent interview:How has reading helped you become a movie star?

Well, I have to read a lot of scripts first of all. Also, reading helps you learn about the type of character that you are going to play. For example, if you are going to play a role of someone who lived in the 18th century, you have to read about life back then in order to understand your character.

Interesting fact: You probably know Ralph Fiennes plays Voldemort.  11-year old Tom Riddle is played by Fiennes’ nephew, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin.

Update: Unfortunately, we will now have to wait until next summer for the next installment in the Harry Potter series.  Warner Brothers recently pushed the premier back to July 17, 2009.  Here’s the story: http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2008/08/news-flash-harr.html.
