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 expecting her to faint. haha.

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 maybe Stephenie was hinting on the possibility of werewolves, but then thought nothing of it, just that Charlie was being protective.

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

I didnt really like them..i thought about forgetting them completely and leaving them out of the story before i realized how important they become.

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

I didnt like it..it was like Bella was sharing her and Edward's special place with a stranger..

"You," I mumbled almost incoherently.
"I'm yours."

1. That was my very first thought! "How come Bella did not faint at the sight the blood? Her OWN blood!"

2. I did think that the bears would come back sometime within the book, perhaps reappear a few more times, but I had no idea, being the slow-on-the-plot reader that I am, that it would have anything to do with wolves or Jacob!

3. I thought that the La Push guys were cool, until Jacob described them. At that point in the story, I was totally on Jacob's side, and momentarily (gasp..) forgetting about Edward (GASP)! I was like Bella- I wanted to hurt anyone who would even THINK about hurting Jacob.

4. Once Bella revealed that she wanted to make a trip to the meadow, I knew that there would be no way that it would bring about Edward's voice in her head. It was a place of her-and-Edward, not with Jacob. And certainly not without Edward. After all, it was HIS meadow.
Buried deep as you can dig
inside yourself
And covered with a perfect shell
Such a charming, beautiful exterior
Laced with brilliant smiles
and shining eyes
Perfect posture, but you're barely scraping by
But you're barely scraping by

This is one time, this is one time
That you can't fake it hard enough
to please
everyone
Or anyone at all...or anyone at all

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 mildly surprised, but was too into the story to pay it much mind.

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 was almost sure it was going to be a huge part of the story later on.

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

Jacob wasn't exactly my favorite person when I first read this... so I was like "HA!"

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

I felt like it was a betrayal to Edward... he showed her his
special place, and she's just going to bust up in there with another guy? Nuh-uh.

Not really. I actully i didn't really think about it. i was so busy just going "bella you crazy girl". Plus i was also in aww of Edwards voice.

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?
from the begining when it was mentioned i knew that it played a part in the book. I just didn't know what.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
Well i didn't like them because of how jacob presented them. I was scared for jacob somewhat. i wasn't sure what would happen.


4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I am not really sure. i don't think it was the best idea for bella. I felt like if/when she found it she would have a break down. Plus in a way she was betraying Edward, when it came to finding it with Jacob,since it was his special place.

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 actually wasn't surprised at all. When Bella is around Edward, she forgets everything else except for the communication with him. For example, in Twilight, when Bella is in the shower after the car ride with Edward from Port Angeles, she suddenly realizes how cold she feels as if she just remembered. So when Bella hears Edward's voice before the accident, that's the only thing that she's concentrating on, the only communication she has with Edward at that point.

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'm not too sure what I thought about the first mention of the bears but I didn't think to think of them to possibly be werewolves.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I didn't think of them as a cult or a werewolf pack, I was just mainly intrigued to unravel the mystery to Sam's strange stares at Jacob.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I found this very disturbing. Chapter 13 was my by far, favorite part in Twilight. So when Bella is taking Jacob to the field, I was so angry at Bella and I wanted to hurl the book across the room. That meadow is sacred to Edward and Bella, where everything was revealed; their feelings, Edward's secrets, and their desires. I understand why Bella didn't want to go on her own so that she didn't fall apart but I thought she definitely chose the wrong person to take with her. Thankfully they never found it together because that would defeat the sanctity of this special place.

I was a little surprised, but I had a feeling that because Jacob was there, her sun, she was able to keep things together better than she would have if she was by herself.

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?

At this point, I knew something was up. I just couldn't get it the first time through.

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

I thought it was an out of control Buttercream Gang.

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

It made sense, but I didn't think she would hear his voice like she hoped. I also didn't want Jacob to see it. That was her and Edward's place.

I didn't think about it very much. Doesn't she have to look at her own blood about once a month anyway? Doesn't she trip and fall often?

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? D<

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

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob? I thought it was cute, she was just looking for another Edward moment and she was spending time with Jacob at the same time.

Yeah, I was like why aren't you freaking out and fainting, weres the Bella we know and love :)

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 think they were bear I thought they were werewolfs, cause what's a vampire story with out a couple werewolf?

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

That they were in some weird gang. And maybe some drug were involved.

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

I thought it was weid, I didn't think Jacob should be able to go there.

Nothng of it. :P I'd make an awful detective.
3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

Weirdos.
4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I thought it slightly wrong. It's Bella & Edward's special place.

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 like "GO BELLA!"
Edward leaves, and suddenly she gets all brave about her and blood.
I thought it was interesting.



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?

Yeah, I was suspicious. I mean, why would Meyer show two random hikers arguing about the size of a bear in the Newton's shop if it wasn't important?
It was eerie.


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

They were losers who were making Jacob feel horrible.
I wanted to kick 'em.


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

The first time I read New Moon, I was like "Okay, whatever, cool. Let's just get this over with." You know? It wasn't that important to me.
For some reason, the second time I read New Moon I really tuned into it more and got kind of mad at Bella.
I mean, that was HER. AND. EDWARD'S. spot.
Just like her and Jacob have that little log they sit on at the beach.
They should stick to their own places.
