Movie-Tie In Edition Now Available with New Images

UPDATE: It looks like the second tie-in edition has the same cover and images on the back, it is just a smaller size. Overstock has changed their image on the 2nd version to the one seen below, but the Target one is still a different image. 

Two movie tie-in editions of The Host were released today. For those who do not know, movie tie-in novels generally replace the regular cover with a movie poster or other promotional images.

The edition I purchased has the same content as a previous paperback release: bonus chapter, reading guide, and Stephenie Meyer's annotated playlist.

The back cover has a new still of Wanda & Ian and one still previously seen on the back cover of the Illustrated Movie Companion. 

Check out the "Purchase The Host Books" page for links to order. Copies may also be available at your local stores (I purchased mine at Target). The tie-in audiobook will also be available later this month (January 15th).


  1. Thank you so much for creating this site. It's really a great source of information of all things the host. I just have one question though, which version of the movie tie novels has the bonus chapter? The first or second version from target?

    1. Thank you for checking out the blog and your kind comment. It's always nice to hear from visitors.

      I am not sure if the mass market paperback includes the bonus chapter. My store only carries the standard paperback tie-in, which has the bonus material. It's not a Target exclusive, so the same version on Amazon should have the same content. I spotted the mass market version at my local Barnes and Noble, though I didn't flip through it, so all I can say comment on is its smaller size. I hope this helps.

    2. Thank you so much for the information, it helped me greatly. :)

  2. Sorry I have another question. Does the movie tie in from amazon has the bonus chapter too or is it only available at target?
