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?

Well, I was sort of expecting her to feel sick'"like she did even at the beginning of New Moon with the stitches. But I guess she still had such an adrenaline rush from hearing Edward's voice that she didn't care about 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 still was not paying any attention to the 'bears' . The biggest thing on my mind was getting Edward back. It was nagging me the whole middle part of the book'"the whole 'Where is Edward?!?!' feeling.

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

I was sad that Jake felt like he was losing a friend. I was getting quite suspicious of the 'gang' at this point. I still wanted to know about Sam, though. I never saw him as 'evil' and so wanted to know what his deal was.

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

I was wondering why she wanted Jacob there when she found it'"I saw the reaction she had coming early, and didn't know why she would want Jacob to be there and see her break down like that. I can understand how Jake kind of kept her 'calm' while searching for it, though. Who wouldn't want to hang out with Jacob so much? I would love to have my own personal Jacob!

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?
Actually, I really wasn't thinking of the blood that much. I was thinking about Edward's voice. But now that I think of it, I guess I am a little surprised that Bella didn't react that much to 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 really wasn't thinking about the bears that much. I did think that maybe they were connected to Edward, but other than that, I just pushed them aside.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
Well, I wanted to know more about them. I thought that they were sort of mean at the time.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like the idea of her looking for it with Jacob. I thought that she should keep the meadow a secret, and I was worried that her and Jacob would like kiss or something if they went there...I don't know why!

I was not surprised that bella did not react badly to the blood the second time, because she was stronger then, also I think that is a big forshadow showing that bella is truley ready and wanting to become a vampire.

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 felt the bears would play a very big role in the book when I first read about it.

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

I felt they were so weard and rude. I did not like them beucauce jacob or bella did not like them. I still don't like them.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
It kind of in a way hurt me. I felt this can't be good! She is shering her privete Edward place with jacob, well then maby she does feel that love for him then. But on the other hand I felt she was desprete to find the meadow and jacob was the only help she could get. I kind of felt bad for her using him. but not really!
I was already past trying to live through one week at a time, or even on day. I was fighting to make it through a single hour. It was only a matter of time - and not much of it- before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I'd be happy to beg now, if you'd like that.

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?

No, because Bella wasn't the ancient Bella... she had just got up of being zombie, so she couldn't react at all.

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 considered that it might play a future role in the book, something as if Emmett appeared eating bears :lol:

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

They were good guys and good friends to Jacob, but nothing special.

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

I didn't like it. I was upset, because that was Edward's meadow, not Jacob's meadow.

Nah, it just wasn't the worst thing in her world anymore.

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 knew they were werewolves.

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

I thought they were probably the werewolves.

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

I was just sure that was going to backfire somehow.

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?

Yeah I was a little disappointed in that. I think that maybe, knowing that she wanted to be a vampire, had an effect on that.

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 the bears had something to do with the plot of the story. In the second or third chapter when Bella said that something was sniffing around her, and then after seeing Sam's gang on the cliff I thought there might be something going on. I always felt that the dream in Twilight where Edward has the fangs and Jacob yelps and falls to the ground was foreshadowing, but I was never really sure.

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

I hated them. I thought they were jerks, but many of them had good enough reason.

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

I despised it. I couldn't stand that she wanted to destroy something that was sacred to her and Edward. It was their special place, and I felt that it wouldn't hold the same significance to them if Jacob and Bella had found it. I think that when she found it on her own, it was a sign that she shouldn't have looked with Jacob. Even though Jacob did end up there because of Laurent. I just think that by Bella finding it on her own, it still held the significance of her and 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 think that Bella was in this natural state of high from hearing Edward's voice in her head. I think it serves a higher purpose of just deluding any pain she's currently feeling (from the "hole" in her chest to a gash in her head) by being the only thing she can focus on. I think that throug her own accidents, like at her birthday, she's slowly learning to tolerate it more.

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?
Now, with the what, third mention of them I kind of figured out that there was a lot more to them than I'd orignially thought. Still had no idea what exactly it was though until I was told.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
It was so confusing for me trying to figure out the La Push "gang," because like Bella, I couldn't get why Jake hated them so much if they were consistently doing good things for the reservation and for everyone on it. I felt bad for Jake that his friend was virtually abandoning him, but was confused about the whole ordeal nonetheless.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I thought that was a bad idea that had the possibility of ending incredibly horribly. That was her "place" with Edward, and to bring Jacob to a place like that, that is so full of incredible memories was like a recipe for disaster. She was afraid of letting Jake see her crumbling, and all I could think about was the fear it would put in Jake if he saw her reaction to this incredible meadow that was suddenly empty.

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?
Well it said in the story that Bella smashed into something (don't have the book with me right now so I'm not quite sure what that "something" was) and that the smell of the moss over took the smell 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 didn't really think all that much of the 'bears' because I was paying too much attention on Bella and hoping that she didn't fall back into that depressing hole that she crawled out of. (metephoricly) until Bella found the meadow and the wearwolfs attacked Laurent. Then I knew that they served some importance in the story.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
They made Jacob mad so I didn't really like them that much but they were kind of nutral character at that point for me.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I thought that Bella was breaking some secret code that nobody knew about and I was mad at her for it.

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?

Not really, I knew her mind was somewhere else.

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 but I pushed it out of my mind for the most part. It really helped me in Eclipse though when Charlie first mentioned the 'serial killer' in Seattle, that's when I knew something was up.

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

I didn't like them because I didn't know too much about them and of what I did was biased.

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

Sad. Mad at Edward. I knew Bella would be disappointed but I still hoped.

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?

Well, I didn't look too much into it, but I did wonder a bit. If she got woozy just by looking at blood, wouldn't having the stuff gushing out of your head be even worse?
But at the time I was too absorbed in Edward's hallucinatory voice to pay much attention to anything about blood or anything.

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?

Well, I did expect something to come up with thtem- they must've been important if it was mentioned so much- i just never expected that they weren't actually, you know, bears ...

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

I thought they were pretty cool. It didn't make me as anxious when Quil and Embry were there- Jacob (probably) wouldn't try anything with Bella- that was what I was nervous about when they were alone together in that garage. I was glad that Bella had found a friend, but knowing how Jake obviously felt ... It was just better, for me, to read about Quil and Embry being there with them.
And then the La Push gang .... I didn't give mych thought to them either- I just thought they were both pretty tough and rather stupid for jumping off huge cliffs into ice-cold water in such freezing weather. That's about it. But when I read how much Jake despised them, I started to think a little about why. I didnt pay as much attention to it as I normally would've though, because I don't know ... it didn't seem that significant at the time.

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

I absolutely HATED it.
It was Bella and Edward's sacred place, what place did Jacob hold that would allow him to search for it -and possibly find- when it was Bella and Edward's special place?!

Don't get me wrong, I wanted Bella to find it and revisit it, but at the same time, I didn't want her to and I especially didn't want Jake finding it. To me, it was always Bella and Edward's meadow not Bella and Jake's meadow
And I also felt anxious about what she would find there. What if Edward was there? (It wasn't a high possibiliy- not even 10% probably, but I hoped).
So I wanted her to find it- but I also didn't want her to find it.And I most definitely did not want Jacob finding it.

grr...
