Then here's the official press release from Hachette Publishers:

Startling and addictive…. An epic story of love, family, and loyalty.” –USA Today

Now in paperback!
The #1 New York Times bestseller
by the author of the Twilight Saga
THE HOST
by Stephenie Meyer
Special Reading Group Guide includes
a New, Never-Before-Published “Bonus Chapter”


On April 13, 2010, Back Bay Books will release the paperback edition of Stephenie Meyer’s worldwide bestseller THE HOST. With a 650,000 announced first print run, the paperback edition will feature a special Reading Group Guide that includes a new, never-before-published “bonus chapter,” an interview with Stephenie Meyer, discussion topics and questions, and the author’s annotated playlist.

THE HOST debuted at #1 on The New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list and remained there for more than a year. Meyer’s first adult novel was not only a huge commercial success, with more than 2 million copies sold, it also brought a whole new audience of readers to Stephenie Meyer. Featuring one of the most unusual love triangles in literature, THE HOST, appeals to rabid Twilight Saga fans and readers of classic literary suspense alike.

Movie rights to THE HOST have been optioned by Nick Wechsler and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz, the team that produced the film of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Andrew Niccol of Gattaca and The Truman Show will write the script and direct.

In less than five years, Stephenie Meyer has become an international literary phenomenon. Her Twilight Saga has sold 100 million copies worldwide.”


The Twilight Lexicon found out exactly what the bonus chapter is:
"We asked about the bonus chapter and this is what we were told, “The bonus chapter is something Stephenie wrote when she was working with the film producers – it was a scene that Stephenie always had in her head, but it couldn’t appear in the book because her narrator was unconscious at the time. The “omitted” chapter would, chronology-wise, fall in between Chapter 58 and 59 of The Host."

Sincerely, Alice
