"Good news: The Host paperback is now available for pre-order. I have just heard from the publishing company that the paperback release will have a Reading Group Guide that includes the following:

From what I've read online there is going to be a movie from the book. The bonus chapter is a part of the movie that SM decided to add to the book. *Fingers Crossed* there will be a way to get the bonus chapter without rebuying the book. I've already bought it twice and would rather not have to rebuy it yet again.

Oh wow, that's cool! I'm excited for the movie (as long as the keep do justice to it...), and that makes me want to read the bonus chapter even more. Maybe I'll go to the bookstore and read it in the store . . .

I read the bonus ch and I was like this was a waste of my time. It was about
Melanie waking up and what not and was about stuff I already knew happened because they explained it when Wanda woke up in her new body. The ch was not badly written it was just plain old unnecessary. So my advice is to read it in the store if you must but it's really not necessary

the reason it was added/ written was because they needed melanies perspective for the movie and then she decided to add it to the paper back.
