I'm finally coming back to this after I read Eclipse! Ok, let's hope I can even remember New Moon.



1. Bella called and called Jacob to try to find out what was wrong. Do you think it was the right thing for him to try to just ignore her and move on? Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner?
Oh God, Jacob couldn't just be like, "I love you" one day and then the next day Nothing! I felt something fishy going on...

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I didn't like the New Jake. He scared me. He was so angry and scowling all the time... I knew then that he wasn't the same... and he would never be the same, happy-go-lucky, sunshine Jake that Bella had known.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
The only time Bella really "lead Jacob on" was back in Twilight. She used his boyish reluctance to the Quileute myths to her advantage. But in New Moon, Jacob is the glue that's holding her together. You don't bite the hand that feeds you.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
I thought it was...*drum roll* ... a tree branch. Pretty anti-climatic, huh? I was surprised that it was Jacob though.

Mmmm, whether or not he should I'm pretty sure he didn't think he had a choice.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

I felt sorry for him. Its obvious he was having a hard time adjusting to his new self. He was also dealing with the fact that the Cullens ARE vampires and everything that that means...

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I think she was just so confused. Like she said, she was using Jacob as a drug. But, at least Jacob was aware.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I was so hoping it was Edward. Then for the split second she thought it was Victoria so did I... but then it was Jacob. *sigh*

i think Jacob should have talked to her. after all Bella has been through how could he just ignore her. Edward left her for crying out loud! now he's going to too? i've proven my point. =P

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

a bit..but not very frightening. he was described a bit less childish i guess, and yes he really had her best interest in mind.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

i agree with Billy. Bella should not have done that because she knows she still loves Edward and could "never" love anyone else.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I was HOPING (there's that word again) it was Edward. i was very disappointed when i figured out who it was.. =[

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

I thought that he should have at least called her and been like "I don't think we... " you know the speal... so at least she shoulda got closure.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

This is what I like to refer to as "the beginning of the jerk Jacob" Yeah, didn't like him then, don't like him now.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I think that she tried her best to sum up their relationship and that she couldn't help it if she didn't feel the same way.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

Me, being an Edward fanatic, thought Edward had returned to Bella because he never stopped loving her. I thought, even all through New Moon, that it wasn't over between Bella and Edward. And look! I was right!

Answer: I think he was rude. He should have at least given Bella some explaination, even if it wasn't the truth.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Did you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
Answer: I think He really had Bella's best interest in mind, but he was still scary.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
Answer: Both, Jacob was just supposed to be a drug of sorts to stop the pain from Edward's abscence :cry: , but she fell sort of in love with her drug, but not like Jacob liked her. So it started out as playing, but turned into something more. (confusing, huh :?: )

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?
Answer: I thought it was Victoria, though I really wanted it to be Edward. But I didn't get my hopes up. I got spoiled before I read the book, so I knew nothing like that happened until chapter seventeen.

I thought Jacob was being a real jerk. I'm one of those people who just tell things as it is, right up front. I don't like to delay things.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

I thought, "something is going on here..." I was wondering what could have caused such a change in such a short amount of time. The Jacob we had been introduced to thus far did not seem like the type that would do this sort of thing.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I don't think she was. She told him that she didn't feel that way. It was up to him to keep pursuing. Sure some girls do that for fun, but Bella is not that type, and Jacob would know that.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I wasn't sure who it was. I thought she was just imagining it.

I'm a little biased, I love Jacob. I think he should've tried sooner. :D

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

I thought he was a bit scarier, but I thought it was just him growing and sort of becoming himself.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I definately think Bella was playing Jacob. She ran to him right after Edward left and led him on. It wasn't fair to him.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I thought it was Victoria!! My heart skipped a beat and I got really scared, and then when I turned the page and it SAID Victoria, I thought I was right. I'm glad I was wrong haha.[/b]

I dont know about right but i think it was the only thing he could do. I mean he was going through something really hard. He had to try to understand a whole nother half of himself and that cant be easy.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?
I was slightly mad and of course blaming Sam.
Yes i did think he was lil frightening what with the bitter expression on his face and what not.
Mmm. Yes i do think he did. I think he always has...he's just immature...thats why its sometimes hard to see that.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?
No i dont agree with that. Countless times Bella told Jacob that she didnt feel that way.

I really didnt know i mean i was HOPING that it would be Edward but i seriously doubted it was.

No, you don't do that to friends. He should of talked to her right away.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Do you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

I was like whoa what happened to him I miss the little [well littler Jake] No I didn't think he was frieghtening, kind of sort of.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I think she was sincere.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

I think it was Edward. But i seriously doubte it was.

. Bella called and called Jacob to try to find out what was wrong. Do you think it was the right thing for him to try to just ignore her and move on? Or do you think Jacob should have tried to get a message to her sooner?

This part of the book really upset me. I was enjoying their relationship so much and really how more can Bella go through with each guy turning away from her due to situations she can't control. That said.... (sorry this chapter really upset me, can you tell?) No I don't think it was right of Jacob to ignore her. At least Edward explained best as he could and even then I wasn't 100% pleased with his exit. This was even worse. Jacob was always so sweet to her. I hate seeing him this way. I wish he would have gotten a message to her, but once in this cult he is no longer really Jacob so I understand. Grrrr don't want to, but I do.

2. What was your first impression of the "new" Jacob with his short hair and larger frame? Did you think he was frightening? Di you think he really had Bella's best interest in mind?

oh yes, I do think he had Bella's interest in mind, I think? It was hard to tell if he's so changed that he really is this new creature, but it seemed like he knew it's best she just go. I wasn't frightened, just bummed he's growing so rapidly and his hair is cut off.

3. Billy accuses Bella of leading Jacob on. Bella herself uses the term "breaking up" to refer to the end of her relationship with Jacob. Do you agree with Billy that Bella was playing Jacob, or do you think she was sincere in her feelings?

I think Bella was using Jacob. She would do anything to block out her pain, but in time I think she was enjoying his sweet friendship. She did warn Jacob at the movies that it would never be more.

4. What did you think the sound was tapping at Bella's window at the end of the chapter. Did you think it was Jacob... or Edward... or Victoria... or someone else all together?

Jacob, I'm pretty much settled into maybe Edward will show up at the end of the book? I say it's Jacob.
