1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recommend a good Sci-Fi book?
I don't think she did. The story took place in 2006, and the Host wasn't published until 2008. I honestly have no idea which book she found. I don't know if this is sci-fi, but it's this series (Among, i think) and the first book is Among the Hidden. Basically, it's about the future, and they have this law where you can have no more than two children, and you have to get rid of your third (if you have one). So, this group of kids, all of them the third child in their families, ban together to overthrow the government, and get rid of the law. I'm starting the sequel.
2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
No. At first I was like, "Why is he calling?" Then, afterwards, I realized it was still for Jacob to make sure Bella hadn't been changed.
3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
I was extremely surprised. I'm not being biased or anything, but I think it was Paul's fault, because he knows the territory like the back of his hand, whereas, Emmett only knew the boundaries like the back of his neck. There's a difference.
4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
With Renee, Bella can open up, and not have to worry about Renee telling Charlie, or anyone else. Renee will just listen, and not make any remarks or comments, unless necessary. Charlie will feel the need to memorize, tell Renee, and make comments about every word that comes out of Bella's mouth.
5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
I'm having no creativity at the moment, so I would say, if the plane crashed (when flying back from Italy in NM) over the ocean with another plane by accident. Trying to get all of those people out of the middle of the Atlantic ocean would be hard.

Haha...of course it was The Host! I don't really read sci-fi...

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Noppers

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Yes, I was surprised. I think it was Paul's fault.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
I think Bella is much more comfortable with Renee.

...I have no idea
*I Love Edward Cullen!*

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?

A: Nope.

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?

A: Yes. Emmett. I think the pack thinks they know more than they actually do. They act as though they've lived with this their whole lives but to them it had been only stories and legends up to this point. The vampires were actually there and given their desire to be good vampires they know the lines.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.

A: Doesn't matter. He'd come up with something. :D

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Yes.

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Paul, automatically.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
I honestly think she's most comfortable with Renee in certain ways. And comfortable with Charlie most in other ways. Balances out, but she's closer to her mother.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Snakes on a plane ! Edward pwns those snakes. ^^
"But," Edward went on, "If I had been able to take your place last night, it would not have made the top ten of the best nights of my life. Dream about that."

I really have no idea because I haven't read The Host yet!
I'm not really into Sci-Fi.

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Nope.

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Not really? I think Paul. His temper seems like WHOA.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
Renee seems more like a friend to Bella and someone she can talk about anything with.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Hmm...the pilots are brainwashed from their headphones and leaves their little area to go and murder the passengers.
I dunno :roll:

1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recomend a good Sci-Fi book? Hmm this is a tough one lol.. I am not really sure..I don't read much sci-fi


2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling? No at first I had no idea, then when it was finally realized I was like 'Oh my.. I feel dumb' lol"

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault? No, Not exactly surprised. I mean it fits both of their personalities lol. Personally I feel like Paul was at fault because of his temper seems to get out of control easily..

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.:Well Bella seems to be a lot more comfortable with Charlie now, then in Twilight or New Moon. but still she has a stronger bond with renee. I think Bella feels open to renee because she wouldnt freak out at most things the way Charlie would (Such as riding motorcycles ol)

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of. Edward can get out of any situation lol.

Lots of thanks to Cocoa for these!!

1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recomend a good Sci-Fi book?
This one is tough. I'm not really a science fiction reader. I guess I will go with Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice (there is my lame attempt at being funny). I will admit that I have never read the book though.

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?

I wasn't sure why he called. I was thinking that he knew the weather would be sunny the next day and wanted to talk to Bella alone. I had no idea that he was there to speak to Edward.

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?

I was really surprised about the altercation between Emmet and Paul. I think that Paul was at fault, but that could be because I love the Cullens. I wish the wolf pack would take a minute to think before they acted.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.

Her relationship with her mother and father is interesting. With Charlie there is always this weird sort of tension. I think it seems to stem from the fact that he wasn't around as much as her mother when she was growing up (living in AZ just might have a little to do with that). The relationship with her mother seems to be reversed. Bella seems to be the adult and Renee more of the child.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.

I am at a loss for this one...um the cabin pressure is gone and there is no way to breathe as the plane is going down.

1. 1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recomend a good Sci-Fi book?
I have no idea what sci-fi book she was reading. Maybe a Doctor Who inspired book? I haven't really read that many Sci-Fi books, most of them dealt with Doctor Who or something doing with ghosts.

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Hmm, I really don't remember. I remember thinking that he was probably worried about Bella's safety, but the three days thing didn't click right away.

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
I was a bit surprised to learn of the altercation, but if it were to be any two from both groups, that's who I would have chosen. I think it was more Paul's fault, overreacting.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
I think Renee and Bella can talk about anything out in the open because it seems like Renee has no filter. Charlie on the other hand seems to be a bit more reserved when it comes to expressing himself with Bella. I think both are natural relationships to have, but I think that Bella's relationship with Charlie maybe a bit healthier than her relationship with Renee. I don't want to bash on Renee, but she seems to need a bit more taking care of. Renee is also a lot more perceptive to what's going on with Bella than Charlie is. This is one quality of Renee that would be useful for Charlie to have.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Edward and Bella are flying in a private jet to arctic to a private base so Bella could get a feel as to what it would be like to live with the penguins. They begin to descend to a lower altitude so they can prepare for landing, but there is a surprise ice storm. The twin engine plane's engines begin to ice over. Knowing that they're going to crash, but not too far away from the airport, Edward parachutes with Bella out of the plane. Knowing there is only a few seconds to get Bella to safety before she freezes to death, he safely parachutes down with her seconds before the plane explodes to the ground and sets up camp by the burning plane to keep her warm. Alice would see what is happening and show up with the Porsche 911 Turbo version of a plane and rescue them. Another version could be with Bella accidentally setting the plane on fire while in the lavatory.

1. I don't really read sci-fi. The only one I can think of is the host.

2. No. I was just surprised at his really sudden change of heart.

3. I don't remember what I felt. I thought it was stupid that they were making such a big deal out of nothing.

4. Renee and Bella are really close. Didn't she say they held hands on the way back the house? I would never hold hands with my mom if I didn't have to. Bella and Charlie have an unspoken love for each other.

5. They're flying to their honeymoon (on a private island Edward rented) when a massive storm hits. The plane gets hit by lightning and it loses power, meaning the controls no longer work. Edward straps a life jacket (don't ask where he got one from) to Bella and he tears a side of the wall off. They jump down into the powerful storm waves and Edward swims the rest of the way to the island with Bella on top of his back. Edward might even have to battle with a few Bella-hungry sharks.
"I was with Edward in my happy place."
