1. Bella is surprised and touched that Charlie put snow chains on her truck because she isn't used to people taking care of her. Later on we know that Renee called Bella hysterical to have her come home yet Renee wasn't in Phoenix. Given all of this what were your impressions of Renee?
I thought she tried to be a great mom but sometimes she forgets about some things.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
No i understood everything.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
I thought It was for him to care so much.
4. This is the first time we meet Carlilse. What were your first impressions?
He seems cute.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
It intrigued me because I wanted to know why he acted so mean.

I felt kind of bad for bella that she had to feel that way. Renee obviously was too flighty to even think about doing something like that. I feel like bella was almost just an old meditation class she quit. she wasnt committed enough.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I think i got all the details pretty clearly actually

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
i thought it was a pretty normal reaction. I was actually glad to see some of his concern

4. This is the first time we meet Carlilse. What were your first impressions?
He sounded realllllly nice, and knowing the slight amount we knew about edward, i was thinking "well at least his dad has more than just looks, but hes nice too!"

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
Nothing about edward ever really frightened me... so naturally i was intrigued, and a little ticked off

I thought Renee wasn't too much of a parent. She just was kind of there to pay the bills and taxes, drive Bella to where she needs to be, and make sure Bella doesn't die and burn the house down. Otherwise, I almost got the impression that Bella was being Renee's parent.
2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I was totally lost when it all happened. I had to reread it several times. Then, later, I still realized I missed some stuff. I couldn't really picture it until the teaser trailer!
3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
Charlie had every right to act the way he did. Of course he's going to freak out if he hears Bella's in the ER. She just moved in with him, and he's still getting used to the parenting thing.
4. This is the first time we meet Carlilse. What were your first impressions?
I just seemed like a calm man, who was very laid back, but was decisive about his "laid backness." If that makes any sense.
5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
It actually annoyed me. It made no sense why Edward was like that. Bella could really have been going into post-trauma state, and he didn't realize. (Not that it actually happened, but still.) Edward almost looked like a jerk to me.

Renee isn't very practical. She thinks in the moment, and almost never about the consequences. Bella has had to not only take care of herself, but also Renee.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?

I got it all when I read it.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?

I thought he reacted like any nervous father who had a child in danger. That's how my parents reacted when I had my accident.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlilse. What were your first impressions?

He was handsome, and seemed to be a genuinely nice guy.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?

I was intrigued. I wanted to know why he was telling her he was next to her when he wasn't. It was irritating.

It gave me the impression that Renee was the one who needs Bella and not the other way around like a typical mother-daughter relationship. But in soime aspects, it was the typical motherly reaction of wanting their only child near them again. My parents were a bit distraught when I went off to college and I was visiting every other weekend or so. Haha.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?

I had to reread that part because it took me a minute to wrap my mind around what was happening as I was trying to visualize it. Bella recounting the event didn't make much of a difference with me concerning that scene.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?

Appropiate. It started to show that he is definitely the more responsible of the two parents and that he does care for her an awful too even though that they didn't seem that close on the surface of their relationship.

4. This is the first time we meet Carlilse. What were your first impressions?

At first I figured that he was fitting into the stereotype of the hot doctor (haha) but then I realized that he was related to Edward and that he was a vampire too especially when Bella mentioned that he "was in on it." I didn't have too many surprises in the first few chapters of Twilight.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?

Intrigued me, not much frightened me about him until later on. I kept wondering how long it would take Bella to figure out what he was.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

1. Renee=kind of flaky and a bit childish. Typical mother reaction though, to be fair.

2. I had to re-read the scene a couple times to visualize Edward's movements.

3. Predictable. Well, not predictable, but... parent-like, appropriate. He handled it better that Renee.

4. I loved him! Definitely had that cool-sexy-smart thing going in. Yupyupyup, I liked him at once.

5. Quite frankly, I though he was being a jerk.

Oh, poor, unsuspecting Bella. If only you knew.

I <3 irony.

I think Renee is doing her best, that she became a mother at too young of an age (maturity wise), and that she's a mother to Bella when its convienent, and more like a friend most of the time.

2. The accident is the first great action scene in the book. Did you get all the details right in your head the first time, or did you realize you missed finer points when Bella thinks about the accident later?
I just finished reading the book for the second time, and realized I was so caught up in what was happening that I missed a lot of finer details throughout the whole book.

3. What did you think about Charlie's response to the accident?
That he acted like any good father would

4. This is the first time we meet Carlilse. What were your first impressions?
That he is the kind of person I would like to spend months just talking to. He is very wise, and very kind. I believe that his presence would be very calming.

5. Did Edward's cool and even sarcastic comments regarding the accident intrigue you or frighten you?
Intrigue, very much so

His response was a good response.
