    It's been 10 years since "Twilight" was released.

    Believe it or not, a whole decade has passed since author Stephenie Meyer first introduced Bella Swan and Edward Cullen to the world, and now, Little, Brown Books will celebrate the milestone with a special edition that is slated to be released next month.

    The special re-release, which will be out Oct. 6, will include exclusive bonus content, and Meyer will participate in various events over the next few months, including New York Comic-Con, and book signings.

    "It's amazing to me that 10 years have passed since 'Twilight' was first published. For me, this anniversary is a celebration of the fans, with all of their incredible passion and dedication. I'm excited to get to spend time with them again," Meyer said in a statement.

    "I felt the same thrill reading this special anniversary edition as I did when I read the manuscript a decade ago. I'm pleased we have this opportunity for devoted fans to relive the extraordinary 'Twilight' experience, as well as for a new generation of readers to discover it for the very first time," Megan Tingley, the public and EVP of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers added.

    Since it was published in 2005, "Twilight" became a New York Times best-seller and blockbuster film franchise starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The series, which featured sequels "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn," has sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
