I promise! In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly they did an interview with Stephenie Meyer.
The article states "She already has a first and second sequel to The Host mapped out in her head." The article also mentions that she has already written four chapters of a ghost story she is calling 'Summer House'.

Yeah... the soul, then the seeker ^^
Too bad it won't be for while. But oh well, I can live.

Does the trilogy go like this: The Host, The Seeker and The Soul.

Or does it go like this: The Host, The Soul, and The Seeker.

I've heard it both ways, but I like the first way more. The Host, The Seeker and The Soul...it seems to flow better.

OMG really? I liked the book a lot and, though I think it could stop there if it wanted to, I wandered if there was going to be a continuation of the story...
oh, this is amazing! Thanks for the news!

It goes The Host, The Soul and the Seeker. It says in her interview with MTV, I think.
over a year ago keaf20 said…
that is pretty exciting!
last I heard was that she still wasn't sure.

I'm super excited.
but now it's gonna be a long wait just like it's been for BD.
-sigh-

I read somewhere that she had said that if she would write a sequel one of the main characters would die.
I'm freaking out now. Sure I badly want more but if she kills Ian or Wanda, I'm done!!!
over a year ago emma-jeff said…
Woop woop!!!!!!! Im so excited! Stephenie's so awesome!
over a year ago Poppee said…
OMG!! I never read anywhere she was going to kill anyone off!! I'd be ok of it were Jeb, but not Kyle, Sunny, IAN, Wanda, Melanie, Jamie, or Jared. I would be so mad and so depressed if she killed any of them off, especially IAN!!
over a year ago wandererian said…
yeah i agree with Poppee, it's k if Jeb dies but not the other main characters that would just b...emo! but at least she's writing a sequel I'M EXCITED! i hope it doesnt take like years for it to come out. probably will though?
over a year ago DefineDelicate said…
boy do i feel left out O___O i mean..for real? is she really writing a squeal??? i'm so effing happy about that. WHOOOOHOOOOOOOO :D :D ;)
over a year ago twilightfan22 said…
that is soooo cool i cant wait!! WAHOO!!!
over a year ago Jericlove28 said…
I herd that she was either completley done with the sequel or almost done with it. But if she did kill someone off i HOPE WITH ALL OF THE HATRED IN MY HEART THAT IT IS SHARON!!!!! GRR I HATE SHARON!!! I hope she doesn't kill Ian, Doc, Kyle, Wanda, Jared, or Melanie, or Jamie if jamie died it would be so boring becuase melanie would like be all dpress and so would wanda and ugg.
over a year ago odd-duck said…
Wait-a sequel, where do you guys read this? I was completely clueless!!!!!!!! And Summer house-when's that out?
over a year ago ragga said…
Im sure it will take a while though :/

i hope she comes out with another book soon (any other book).. As long as shes written it I bet its good no matter what :)

I can't absolutely wait for the sequel. I really hope she publishes it soon. I made some covers on what I think the cover should look like. Which one is better?

over a year ago cmtaggie said…
k im glad there will b sequels but from the titles it sounds like it wont be from wandas perspective:( i dont want it to b anyone elses.......but the other issue about killing off a character, if ian dies i will burn the book. no joke. ian cannot die. if it would be anyone else i would still hate it but i would deal...im kinda hopin sharon and maggie hav an attitude change soon...i dont want them to die either
over a year ago XoDanielle_04Xo said…
meh
i only have 1 question . . . if their is a sequel then why isnt it om her official website?!?! it took me soooo long to finally prove to myself there will be a sequel. . . but she jusst updated her page and there is still no news of a sequel its kinda confusingg xD, if their is gonna be a sequel is it comming out this year i am soo excitedd for it...but i kno i will cry if someonee really important dies and then everything goes all depressed xP. . .does anyone kno the answer to these questions?? . . . . .lol i might as well write a book
over a year ago getoverit said…
The reasons why Stephenie hasn't posted anything "official" on her website are #1 because last time she announced that Midnight Sun was coming out everyone freaked out and it ended up leaking out all over the internet VERY prematurely #2 She is very critical of herself and doesn't do well under FANS like all of you that expect your own ending to HER books #3 She likes to be alone in a project and she will not announce it until she, herself is completely done with it and satisfied with how she concludes things.
Along with this, I hope to encourage you all from keeping your own melodrama to yourselves. Appreciate her talent and take what she gives us and be satisfied with it. If you were a true fan of hers you would not be saying things like, "if this happens I'm going to burn the book". That is completely unfair for her to see and read things like that from her fans. And I am sure it hurts her, as she is already very critical of herself.
And yes, I am sure that she will come up with many more and exciting books such as the mermaid book, but like I stated earlier, SHE LIKES TO WORK ALONE. And again, if you are a fan do not spread negativity about her work.

Someone has done a little research or know Stephenie in real life! :P But thanks a lot, I've been wondering about it since I finished the host.

WOW!!!!
My friend bought me a book that was signed by the author and told me to read it. So thats what i did. When i finished I realized that i loved this book and that it was by Stephanie!!!!
Sad thing is is that it ended and there wasnt more >.<
I really wanted it to be a movie or for another book to come after. But lo and behold! There is talk .... i just didnt hear!!!

thanks to all of you for the comments! I'll go see everything on the Host now!!!!

THANKS!!!!!!!!

Well said getoverit (and I love the name)!
Do we have a definite date for the Soul yet? It's been known about for quite a while now and it seems like she's a pretty fast writer.

YAY! XD I really love this book, and I can't wait for the sequel; I feel like the Host was a little better written than the Twilight Saga, but I'm a huge Twilight freak too. Anyway, the sequel needs to come out soon!

yay! i was thinking at the end ' she cant just leave it like that!' and shes gonna have a new book out? thats freakin awesome. im not gonna be able to sleep till they come out.

OMG Really? Sequels? YAY!
over a year ago Czc23 said…
jared and melanie cannot die in any of the stories because they are intergral to the make-up of her plots. but i could see jeb dieing possibly,as that would provoke another member/members of the caves to step up and take charge. jared or ian are most likely.
but im quite excited for the releases of the three.
over a year ago janelzm said…
well when I finished the book I suspected there might be more...never thought it would turn out to be true!!! I agree with the fact that Stephanie likes to work along but can't help guessing. I imagine Kyle would get himself caught and swallow the cyanide, but they somehow healed him and put a seeker in him, and then he wasn't able to take over, so the seekers went to the desert, and all of them would be forced to move...well just wild guesses. But if all the sequels happen in the one safehouse it would be kinda too safe, and Stephanie sure does NOT play safe.
over a year ago love_ian said…
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa omgomgomg can't wait!!! i thought she has to choose between "midnightsun" and "the seeker"! i'm SO happy she didn't have to do that. i read the host like a million times xD oh and the other book, "summer house"? i'm so definitely going to read it. aahhh i wasn't sure if she's really going to write the seeker, but know that i know she will, life is suddenly a better place to live :D xD
over a year ago love_ian said…
i agree, it's unfair to say stuff like "i'll burn the book" etc. it's CRUEL. she doesn't have to do this you know. like she doesn't have problems of her own, i mean c'mon guys she does this just because she wants do make us happy and because she loves to do it. pressure isn't something that will make it easier on her. ALTHOUGH i just can't wait for the books to come out xD :) we all know it will be great, so why to worry?
over a year ago DreamingOfYou said…

I can't wait to see what the sequel is about! But I really, really, REALLY hope she doesn't go in the New Moon direction and have Ian and Wanda split up. . . that would wreak the whole sereie for me!
Also, I heard that in the paperback edition, there's going to be an extra chapter. Is this true? Does anyone know when it's coming out? If it's true, I can't wait to see what it's about!!!

i freaking love this book...it was so good!
stephenie meyer is my effin hero...i will buy anything she writes thats for sure ugh cant wait for the sequel to come out!
over a year ago Rippy said…
Hmm..everyone seems to have a fondness for Ian, but I would stick to the thought of a main character (you know, the bunch Wanda's most close to) dying. It would make the story harsh rather than always being 'Happy'(lol)And, I am on my toes about the new book, I hope Stephanie Meyer doesn't get upset and stop writing again, that will make me upset. And, whaddaya know, I didn't think that The Host would be quite as good as Twilight, but it only took me seconds to know that Stephanie Meyer (again)had bound me in one of her books and addicted me to it. I hope she writes many many books, and become famous and write more and more!(With famous, I meant filthy rich!)She has a born talent for Romance. I'm gonna like this new book 'Summer House', hopefully it will give me Horror-Romance which is better than all!(Hey, in the Caves[The Host], isn't it always summer? Hmm...Meyer seems to like summer a lot..)

okay i have been searching for more info on it! i wish she would tell us if its done being written or not so we would at least know if its in the editing process. AND WHEN IS M<ORE INFO ON THE MOVIE COMING OUT!!! someone on the internet has got to have some type of connection to Stephanie to tell us at least an estimated date for the new book... i just dont wanna wait anymore.... ::SIGH::

I LOVE THE HOST!! I can't wait for the sequel or the film. To think I didn't even want to read it at first, it was only because my mum bought it for me I felt obliged to. I read the first chapter as a taster and couldn't put it down. I was supposed to save it for a holiday but I fineshed it bere we even set off. I've read it like a gizzilion times since. (Thank you Mum)!

As for the main character death, I think it will be Jeb. I love Jeb, he's one of my fave people but it makes the most sense. Everyone will be upset and then the 'who's gonna take over?' thing. *SIGH*

But anyway, can't wait for the film and the sequels. I'm gonna love them. WHOOOOOOOOOO!

This was a great book! I couldn't put it down and will read again! I really hope she does the other two!!!
over a year ago LawBreakRrr said…
Although i'm not a big fan of Twilight series but i would say that Stephenie Meyer is an amazing writer . and after i read The Host , i was thinking maybe in the sequels , she maybe would kill off Jamie's character ? well , thats just my opinion . (and please don't get mad at me , i'm just stating opinion , thats all)
over a year ago Monrose said…
That would be a really good thing for her to do. She can't kill off Ian or Jared (because of the potentional tri-love), and not Melanie, so Jamie would be the only good choice to kill off... He's not that interesting, but it would still be a hurtfully goodbye, because the readers loves him through Mel and Wanda. So I agree with you on that one...
over a year ago LawBreakRrr said…
Yeah , thats what i think because i can totally picture the pain Mel and Wanda's going through if Jamie's gone .
over a year ago lizzybean14 said…
Yeah I heard this to I'm so excited I just hope it is with the same people as the first book.
over a year ago Monrose said…
It is from Wanda's perspective, so I'm pretty sure it is.
over a year ago mikota said…
hmmm
Does anyone know when it is coming out? I have bean re-reading the Host since it came out. I have read it nearly 50 times and I really want to read the second book. And if they kill of Jamie I would die I know he doesn't have a big part or anything but he still shouldn't be killed off. Kill of the doc if they have to kill someone. Or maybe her crazy uncle.

If Ian died I would too. No doubt about it. If Jamie died, I'D be all depressed. And if Jared or Melanie died it would certainly make the book less good.

They shouldn't kill anyone off. They have to keep Melanie alive after all the trouble to get her back or else that'd just be so pointless.

i dissagree with Tiste-Liosan, jared and melanie cant die! doc probably will though, but seriously there are way too many deaths in this book. i hope the sequel wont be bad though it would be sad if wanderer dies.

I have been reading it and i read it in four days i could hardly eat or sleep. Other words im excited to see if the sequal is true or just a rumor. If it is i would die i loved the host and i'm about to read it again after i got it back from my sister who would not put the thing down, she read it four times already :x
