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?
Yah i was surprised.

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 probably didn't think anything of it.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I didn't really like them.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I still don't really understand why she took Jacob. Its Edwards meadow with Bella. not Jacob and Bella's meadow.

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 and no. She learned a lot being around Edward's family. I'm sure it was like second nature to automatically start breathing through her mouth so she didn't smell it. Even though she didn't realize she was bleeding I think it has become and automated response.


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 it was important, I just wasn't sure how it would play into everything in the end.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I didn't like Sam's gang, but the normal boys I liked a lot. They seemed like down to earth good guys. Like they could be your brothers.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like it. I wasn't sure how she would react if they found it and it was her and Edward's place and Jacob didn't need to have anything to do with it in my opinion.

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?
It pretty much explained when she didn't react, the smell of the ferns covered the smell of the blood, what I found more interesting was the three growls. There was the one Edward was making in her head, the other was the bike and I think the third was... A wolf (They were in the area after 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?
Again, this was becoming more and more relevant the further the book progressed

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I thought the gang comment was funny, I thought it seemed like there was something sinister going on it was pretty evident there was something different about them.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
Bella was trying to fill in the hole, I can't blame her for that, she was really just benefiting from Jacob's many talents, she would be completely lost if she had tried that herself so I think her only option was to seek help from Jacob. Even though it was really too personal for her to include him in it. (I'm happy how it turned out)

A: future role.

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

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 it doesn't bother her anymore because she doesn't care as much for her mortality perhaps. Or maybe she tried to mentally prepare for if she were changed? I don't really think I thought about it much at the moment.

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 was suspecting that it had something to do with the plot but then again I wasn't exactly sure what it was. It had been mentioned enough now that I didn't really think that it was a red herring anymore.

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

I thought that they were arrogant teenagers that were abusing the sort of "positon" that they had. I was in JROTC in high school and their behavior seemed to be like some of the guys when they were promoted to a certian position.

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

I think it forshadowed that they may have a similar relationship because that's where Edward and Bella were and so Jake and Bella being there would start off their relationship perhaps.
Here, there, and everywhere...that's where you'll find me.

.) 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?
It crossed my mind, of course, but her reaction was reasonable, so much more was running through her mind than the blood. She was still on an extreme high from hearing Edward's 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?
I definitely knew there would be more to come about that gigantic black bear. It was obvious with how many times it had mentioned.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
It actually kind of really bothered, scared me sort of, the way they were referred to as a gang and how Jacob described them. Although I'm not a huge fan of Jacob, he momentarily filled the role of Edward and I kind of warmed up to him a bit.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I was peeved, yes, but I understand why. I mean, Bella is extremely prone to danger, and she was aware of that, taking someone with was a good idea. But the meadow is pretty much a sacred place and I'm sure Edward would have felt mildly betrayed knowing Bella was with someone else in their secret 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?

Nope because I knew what someone like myself would do who faints at the sight of blood. You have to find a different way of dealing with the blood. Breathing through your mouth, staring at something out in space...


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 thinking Oh BIG FOOT! I know that sounds lame but that was the first thought that came to mine. The next was 'Where is Emmett when you need him?' LOL! I didn't really think the bears would play a role though.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I didn't really have one. I just thought they were guys who knew they could get away with anything and I figured that someone they would cause a problem in regards to Jacob hanging out with Bella. I guess in some ways I was right...hahaha!

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I was a little upset at first that she would want to take Jacob there with her, but then I realized Jacob was just a means of helping her find the place. I think at that point it wasn't the Meadow she was really after. She was looking for the one person she wouldn't find. The one person who somehow had managed to convince her that he didn't love her anymore. To some extent I think finding the meadow was just more proof that he existed and somehow that he still loved her. Something I think deep down inside she already knew but doubted.

1. I was. SM made a huge deal about a little blood 20 feet away from her in biology, but this large wound on her head barely affected her. I guess she was distracted, but still.

2. Again, I still thought they were just big, stupid bears. I didn't think anything of them.

3. Uh, I didn't have one really. I spent my time sulking about Edward. I didn't give a darn about Jake or his problems.

4. It was fine with me. I wouldn't be able to hike through the forest on my own, either. So the next best thing would be to take a friend that you trusted and who understood you.

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 surprised. She's always been portrayed of being very sensitive to blood, so why didn't she act the same way to this situation?

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 think it will play a role.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I felt bad that they were acting the way they were and that Jake was scared and frustrated.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I thought it was wrong. It was Bella and Edward's special place...Bella shouldn't have involved Jake in the search.
