1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recomend a good Sci-Fi book?
I don't read much sci-fi, so I wouldn't be a good person to recommend a sci-fi book. Though I'm sure Renee would love The Host. :)
2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling? I was with Bella, I though he was calling to make sure she was still human. And I so thought I was right.
3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Naw, it's Paul. Things like this seem to happen when that guy is around. I don't think it was anyone's fault, everyone's prejudices of each other just got into the way.
4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
While I do think that Renee is more observant, it's probably just because she's...not more interested, but more concerned about what is going on in Bella's life. Charlie probably notices some things, but he dosen't overreact as much as Renee does.
5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
I don't think there's one I could come up with that Edward couldn't find a way out of. :)

Well, the only Sci-fi books I know are Doctor Who books - adapted from the the tv series. I recommend "Feastof the Drowned" and "Stone Rose". :)
2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Nope, I don't really think of motives the second they happen.
3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Paul! Emmett made an honest mistake.
4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
Somehow - I think she's closer to Charlie...
5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
:lol: ok:
There's a crazed werewolf running amock in 1st class which has just killed all the pilots. And is slowly heading towards where Bella & Edward are sitting. The plane is "on a death spiral" down towards the earth.

I don't read Sci-Fi so lets go with the Host [if that's Sci-Fi than it's gona be the first one I've ever read]

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

No, but I reread it and got it.

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

Yeah, no one's by what we were told it sounds like no one crossed the line.

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

I think Renee sees things more than Charlie and Charlie tends to not see things clearly he's blinded by the fact it's his daughet and he hasn't lived with her for as long.

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

Bella and Edward are in two diffrent parts of the plane [there wasn't enough seets in one of the classes] and the engines have failed and Edward can't find Bella.

HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY!

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Nope! I was just EVER SO HAPPY to hear his voice again.
^_^


3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Yes. I feel no one is to blame because they didn't do it on purpose. That would have been a whole 'nother story.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
Bella is obviously way more at ease with her Renee than Charlie. I can tell she's more open with her mother about her life, and how she wants to live it. It also leads me to believe that when [AND IF] Bella becomes a VAMPIRE she will open up to Renee first.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Haha, Hmm this sounds a little grisly, but how about the plane rips in half and Bella is shredded to pieces by the flying shrapnel and debris...? Thaaaat would be a tough one to figure out.

Hmm, that makes sense I guess.

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Not really, I was just hoping that he didn't start anything.

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Yeah! I was really suprised. I totally think Paul was at fault, I mean Emmett was just trying to solve the problem, and the stupid werewolf had to freak out.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
I think both of her parents love her a lot, just in different ways. Charlie is "the dad" he doesn't really know how to raise a teenage girl. Let alone a girl he only spent like a week with per year until she was seventeen.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Umm, the Volturi are on the same plane as Edward and Bella and start a big vampire war. :shock:

Maybe The Host.. I'll have to say that for now, because I really haven't read any sci-fi... hah.

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?[b/]
No, I pretty much thought what Bella thought at first.

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

I wasn't surprised at all to learn of it... I think that kind of thing is inevitable for two groups with such prejudices. I don't think anybody is to blame, just a product of a miscommunication and quick tempers.

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
I think Renee is very attuned to Bella, where Charlie really isn't yet. He takes longer to catch on to Bella's facial give-aways and things.

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Hmm... the left wing has been snapped off, the engines are dead, the pilots have already jumped off with the only two parachutes in the aircraft, and they're over shark infested seas... in the arctic.
(harsh?)

Haha! Renee probably was reading the Host. Or maybe a more futurisitc scifi like the Uglies Trilogy.

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

Well I didn't think Bella was right in thinking he thought she had been changed, but I didn't catch on that he was going to show up at her school. The thought flashed into my head, but I immediately dismissed it.

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

Not shocked at all. Paul has some SERIOUS issues and he conflicts with everyone, it only makes sense that he would have a close encounter with a Cullen. Now it being Emmett, that's a bit more surprising. I could have seen it as Rosalie or Jasper, but Emmett? He's just so fun-loving. But if he's provoked, then it only makes sense he'd fight back. And go Rose for having his back!

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

Both relationships are very similar in that Bella can't be completely, or halfway really, honest with either of them. She has to lie and it's really quite painful ro read especially since we can see just how close on the mark Renee is; Charlie not so much. With Renee, we see that Bella can discuss so much more and never really feel awkward. If Renee had asked to have another sex talk with Bella in chapt. 3, she would have been nowhere close to being as uncomfortable as she had been with Charlie

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

That note was the funniest thing in the whole book! Ok Edward, here you go.

There are snakes on the plane. A mix of boas and pythons. At least 500 of them. They've killed both pilots and all the stewardesses. The people on the plane are running around in a panic and one of them has pulled out a gun and is ready to blow the brains of everyone on the plane unless someone can find a solution to the plane that is now spiralling into the ocean(don't ask why they're flying over water). To only add to that, the man shoots all the cables and wiring so that plane can no longer be flown. People are bleeding all over the place from broken glass and the violent snakes and there is another vampire on the plane who's about to have a field day. BEAT THAT Edward!
[i]Edward squeezed me gently. "I'm here." I drew a breath. That was true. Edward was here, with his arms around me. I could face anything as long as that was true. I squared my shoulders and walked forward to meet fate, with my destiny solidly at my side.[/i]

1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recomend a good Sci-Fi book?

-Haha, maybe it was The Host. I actually wonder what kind of books Renee reads. She doesn't strike me as a type of person who reads. But I don't know that many good sci-fi books.


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

-No, I didn't. I was defintley confused, but then when Bella thought she figured out why he was calling (to check if she had been changed) I thought right away that had to be the reason; I didn't doubt it.

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

-I was kind of excited when Jake started talking about it. I thought it was interesting. I think...both of them are at fault. But Paul would be the most likely one, giving his temper issue. But Emmett can be kind of like Paul in a way, always wanting to jump in. But I love both Emmett and Paul.


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


-Charlie and Bella's relationship has grown a lot, but you can defintley tell that Renee and Bella are very close, as Bella has mentioned several times throughout the story. It was nice to see it. Bella wouldn't have minded "the talk" that much if it was with her mother, because she said it wouldn't have been embarassing like it had with Charlie. She even went on to mention that she had even had "the talk" a few times with her mother about different men, which I thought was a little funny.

Plus, Bella even felt a little odd about hiding the truth about the Cullens from her mom, because she's never had to hide anything from her before. She's never felt that way with Charlie before.


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


I know I'm boring, but I'm not even going to try.

1. Oh, I don't know. Ender's Game is good, though.

2. Yes, I did.

3. No, I knew it was going to happen sometime anyway. I think Paul was at fault. Emmett's too good to start something like that.

4. Charlie and Bella aren't 'talky-feely' people, and so their relationship seemed to me just like 'yeah, i love you, but I don't like talking about it'. They're comfortable with that. Bella seemed to me like she was always keeping her mom from coming off the rails.... Bella seemed to be more at ease with her mom. Aren't we all?

5. umm... i don't pick fights I can't win. ;)

I think i would recomend her Maximum Ride, for some reason I think Renee would really like that

2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
No not at all, but once i thought about it i did

3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
Ya actually i was suprised. I think it was both of their faults. I mean i really don't like the dogs but still...

4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
Bella can trust Carlisle way more now and she can confide in him, while Bella can't really say anything to Renee, but Bella still loves her mom shes just seperating a little bit

5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
:( I can't think of one
