1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood? Yes, kind of... but she also said that the mossy grass smell was clogging her senses and that she was concentrating VERY hard on not thinking about it

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I didnt really think anything of it. I actually thought it was really random that they put that in there.. but now i realise it was just all being set up for us.
3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
oh i HATED them. specially Sam.. i guess because Bella hated them so much because they hurt Jake. i hated them too because the hurt Jake. I love them now :D
4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I did not think that was a very good idea at all from the start. it didnt add up to her equation. (with the whole adrenaline + danger = edward.)

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?

I didn't really realize that because of the tension of what happened...

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I thought that it might just might have a future role I mean why do authors put things that don't mean anything so I think it had a critical role later on but didn't think much of it.


3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

I just thought that they were jerks and that we would see more of them later on...

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

I to tell the truth was really mad that she would go looking for the meadow with someone else other then Edward I couldn't imagine her finding it with anyone else other than herself and Edward

In Twilight, she had vampire on the brain. Now in NM, she usually isn't thinking, or trying not to, so she ignores that the blood is there because it associates with the vampires.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
With it being mentioned so much, I knew it was going to show up, but I didn't know that it wasn't actually going to be abear.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
They creeped me out, I knew they weren't normal, so I just didn't really think about them all that much.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like it, I knew something bad would happen, and the meadow is Bella and Edward's place. Jacob should not be there! :evil: :P

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
Honestly, I had forgotten how Bella reacts to blood. I read New Moon a while after I first finished Twilight. But I guess the face-full of moss stopped the smell.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
This is where I got suspicious (finally!). I thought someone important might be hurt by the bears. Or something like that... Still, not truely knowing what lies beneath the surface...

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
My own personal thoutghts were these: "Wow, these guys think they're so cool. What losers. Ha." Haha. My first insight of them was through Jacob's eyes, and since Jacob didn't like them, neither did I.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I was furious! No joke! I did NOT want Jacob to be in that meadow. It's Bella and Edward's meadow. Not Bella and Jacob's meadow. I was, honest-to-goodness, like this: "Oh no! Bella, don't you DARE take Jake to that meadow. That's not his place to be! Grrrr..." Haha. I thought she would listen to me... Ha.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
Yes I was. It didn't make sense to me; there was so much more blood this time! But then again... It kind of did make sense too. She was a little more preoccupied this time, focusing on Edward's voice instead of the blood.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I thought it was odd, and I figured it wouldn't get mentioned if it wouldn't play a role further on. But such an important role..? No, not at all.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I still didn't like them much. They were creeping me out a little, and Jacob's fright only made me more worried too.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like it at all - it almost felt like she was dishonouring holy ground!

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?

I was, but just a little. She was surronded by cool, clean air, which makes it hard to smell anything. Plus, she had covered her cut when she was in the cab of her truck. Remember when mike had his finger in his pocket? She couldn't smell it then.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I thought alot about it. This was the Second to fourth time that the "bears" were mentioned. I was wondering 'What's up?', because giant sized bears mentioned in a whole bunch of diffrent places isn't coincidental.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

I thought that they were the bad guys in essence. They had provoked Jacob pretty badly. How could they do that to sweet, well-tempered Jacob?

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

I thought it was smart and stupid at the same time. It was smart because she wouldn't get lost or hurt by herself. It was stupid because she would have had a breakdown like she did eventually. Then again, it was smart so Jacob could comfort her. He was her pain killer, after all.

A little bit. But this time she wasn't really concentrating on it. When someone is distracted by something, you tend not to focus on it.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I started getting a little suspicious here. Bears? But I wasn't entirely sure.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

They bothered me. A lot. I couldn't stand them.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

At first it was kind of weird, since that was her and Edward's special place but I guess it was okay, because she really wanted to find it and Jake just wanted to help her.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
I was a little surprised, but I figured she was feeling too distracted by the crash and Jacob being there, and by having heard Edward again to really notice the blood.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
Every time the bears were mentioned, my suspicion that they were at least a little important grew.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I was pretty suspicious of them. Since Jacob didn't like them, neither did I.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob
I thought it was kind of stupid for Bella to try to get to the meadow. I mean, it would obviously bring up memories of her and Edward, and those memories would obviously cause her pain.

I was really suprised by that...with the reaction that she had in Twilight, I thought that she would've passed out!

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I definatly thought it was a big part of the book...but not nearly as big as it was!

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

I thought they were ok...

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

BAD IDEA! If she want's to look for the meadow, she should look by herself...but we all know where that got her!
"Before you, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars - points of light and reason...and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything."

Yes, I was surprised, but mostly I was just as excited as her that she was hearing Edwards voice :D

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I thought that it would play a big part in the book, but werewolves were my last guess

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

I felt the same way as bella

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

I didn't like it because it was edwardds secret place and even though bella had told all her other secrets, I didn't like it. :(
