1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge? Yes, it's like Edward said...don't know why anyone would bet against Alice.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable? I had no idea what to think would happen between the Volturi but I didn't think the 3 of them would get off so easily.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions? It did but we all know that Bella doesn't want to live in a world where Edward doesn't exist.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that? Yes, I was just excited that someone promised to change her. I knew that Edward wouldn't agree to the idea but I was just excited at the concept of Bella being one step closer to become a vampire.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life? Extremely.

6)Discribe your adrenaline rush: My adrenaline rush?? Skipping the running part of Bella trying to get to Edward to just Bella getting to Edward.
"Because right now, physically, there's nothing I want more than you. More than food or water or oxygen."

Team Edward - Cause only a vampire can love you forever!
Team Bella - I want to be a monster too!

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?

Yes it did, if Alice is woried I'm woried.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?

Scary creepy human blood drinkers.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?

Yeah it frighted me, cause maybe she would kill herself and Edward really wouldn't be dead.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?

Yeah I was reading it and my friend was around and I was like "Yeah go Alice oh yeah oh yeah." and my friend who was just starting reading twiligh [forced on her by me] thought i was nuts. Badly.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?

Yes, very much.

6)Discribe your adrenaline rush:

I was like "Come on Bella you can do it it's the love of your eternity! SAVE HIM!!!!"

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?
Yes a little, it just made we worry that it was already too late.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?
I feel like they are just so'.0.0 I can't explain it they give me the creeps. I don't like them at all.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
HELL YES! I was like what you mean girl!!!!!! I was crying hyperventilating and biting my nails the whole time.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I was like dooooooooooooooooo it! I wanted her to just do it already! I was stoked. I mean Edward would have been really really mad but eh. I mean he would get over it in a couple of century's right? And plus I know it's what he really wants to happen deep inside he wants someone else to change her so he doesn't have to do it'.or that just might be what I want him to want lol

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?

HELL YES! I have never cried so much! My heart was going to jump out of my chest! I was so scared and then Bella's slow self I was like nooooooooooooo!

6)Discribe your adrenaline rush:

It was like being choked and running a mile whilst crying, screaming then jumping on a rollercoaster. Maybe I should you the words of Ron burgundy; I was in a glass case of emotion!
the chicken wasn't always rubber....O.o<a href="http://s29.photobucket.com/albums/c294/vballchck101/?action=view&current=animal_100.gif" target="_blank"><img src="http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c294/vballchck101/animal_100.gif" border="0" alt="cute"></a>

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?

Did she say that? I don't remember that...
4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I thought it was great! But I thought, Edward will scream and shout and cry (if he had any tears)
5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?
Hell yeah! I was on the edge of my bed!

No, not really.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?
I don't know how to explain it.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
It was odd. and somewhat frightned me.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
I wasn't optimisitic yet, they hadn't saved Edward yet, plus i didn't think edward would let alice change her.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?
no, because i knew the end of the book

6)Discribe your adrenaline rush:
I don't know.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?
Kind of, not much. Basically that there was more danger than she was explaining.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?
I didn't know what to think of the Volturi, I just thought of them as old. Really. Old.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?

It didn't frighten me really, because I somehow knew that there was no way that she would die.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?

I was kind of iffy on the whole idea, because like everything so far, something will go wrong.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?

Partially. I was also overjoyed at the time because of the reentry of Edward. I didn't want Edward to leave so soon after he came back.

6)Describe your adrenaline rush:

I was reading faster and faster of course now, and I had to go back and read it again. I wanted to confirm that he didn't die... yet.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?
I was reading so fast from the moment we knew he was going to commit suicide, I didn't care.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?
The Volturi are evil. EVIIILLLL.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
It didn't scare me, since I knew Eclipse was out.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
This makes me optimistic. Very.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?

YES. YES. No Edward, No Bella.

6)Describe your adrenaline rush:
I was reading so fast I had to go back to grand theft auto, and read slow. In my head I was like, AHHHHHH! SAVE HIM!

Questions by Cocoa:

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?

No not really i mean lying to Alice isnt really the same thing as lying to everyone else. Lying to bella for example would be saying something she knows NOT be true Where as fro Alice i would imagine Lying to jasper would only be lying because she has not SEEN it coming if you know what i mean. But at the same time she had not seen their 'doom' coming either :?

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?

Do you know i didnt reali think much of it until jane came ( I mean i hadnt thought much about the during Edwards story ) but when things became more 'real' ( when they were standing in that room with them all ans SM made it clear the discomfort Edward was in just having bella there and add to that the torture of Edward i think im looking forward to hopefully seeing them in breaking dawn.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?

In a way it bothered me but i soon got over it and reolised that in the end SM knows what shes doing and i trust her ( also because i knew there was going to be another book that eased my worries pretty quick :lol: )

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?

I think i admire Alice for taking charge in a matter thar needed addressing but in the end i would be very surprised if Alice changed her not because edward didnt want her to but i beleive that Bella would put her foot down and hold out for Edward i no cheesey but hey !

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?

I was slightly actually this was one of the few things that rally made me feel uneasy because i thought it would be highly possable for SM to continue the story without Edward just focussing on Bellas pain and greiving for him i was pretty worried :roll:

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?
Oh yeah. It made me feel like she had seen that they would not make it out.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?
I don't like them. They scare me.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
yep

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
It made me very optimistic. I knew Edward would be furious. He doesn't want to change Bella.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?
YES!!!!!

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him, did this put you on edge?

In a way it did put me on edge especially with how they had describd the Volturi's. But at the same time, I figured that they couldn't die because there was still a third book coming.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter, what are your impressions of the Volturi now that their meeting is inevitable?

My impression is that they are very powerful.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out" did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?

In a way it did, but again, I knew that there was a third book so I assumed that neither Bella nor any of the Cullens were going to die.

4) Alice promises to change Bella, did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?

This did make me a little optimistic because I couldn't see Alice going back on her promises. It just doesn't seem like her. I obviously thought that Edward would have a fit, be angry, seeing as he intended for Bella to stay human.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion, were you afraid for his life?

Definitely. No question about it, Edward doesn't seem to be the person to go back on his word either, much like Alice. So when he was told that Bella was dead the immediate thought that ran through my mind was "oh my gosh, now' he's going to go kill himself."

6)Discribe your adrenaline rush:

Words can't really describe my adrenaline rush, it was much like I almost wanted to just skim the next few pages just to find out what happens without reading what Bella was thinking. But of course I couldn't do that because that would ruin the whole point in reading the book.
