I thought she was being a little bit rude.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
Yeah, he was nice.

Yes, but he is right.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
No, it actually surprised me. I was like "Well you finally said it!". It was cute :)

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?
Billy was being somewhat polite and I felt Bella responded with a typical teenager response. He obviously is truly concerned for her and Bella could have been more gentle/polite with him. But maybe if she wasn't as rude, he would have pursued Charlie more. I'm actually quite surprised that after Billy and Charlie had such a big argument and even stopped speaking for awhile that Billy would warn him about Bella dating Edward.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
Yes. You have to do the sit down and speak with the boyfriend and tell them to be home early and take care of them. It was sweet.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
He loves her so much.. I imagine that's how anyone would feel if the person they were absolutely crazy for was constantly in danger because of them.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
No.. I think it's better he didn't say it just because she had. Everytime Bella has told Edward that she loved him, he'd say something so much more deep like "you are my life now".

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
I was quite shocked to learn she had jumped from a cliff because her baby had died,.. I didn't really expect that. My opinion of her did not change because of it though, because she's still the same person she is now.. everyone makes mistakes and does things irrationally sometimes. Plus she's had a long time to think about it.

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?

She was rude, but if she wasn’t be so sure of her, Billy would have ran (or roll) to tell a lie so huge to Charlie that he will have to intervene. And intervene in the relation of your 17 years old daughter who just moves… Poor Charlie!

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?

Yes. He was nice, taking information… Even if they tease a little bit Bella, for me it was a good first meeting! :)

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?

As usual. It's Edward, he always hard on himself…

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

No, he said it so many time in other way. This was cute because of it, actually. He used "those word", the one boys never usually say. It’s just a part of the magic, the spontaneity of the moment.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?

I like her more. It gave interesting information on why she take the role of the mother of the family.

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?
I still can't read that part smoothly. Bella is being rude, which seemed a bit out of character. Off course, she is right, but it felt a bit 'off'.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
From Bella's POV: no, from Charlie's POV: yes. Off course, she's embarassed, but off course he does it.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
It's understandable, he is right, but he is being to hard on himself.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
YES! I thought it should have had more attention.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
No, but I did feel more sorry for her past.

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?
I found it really heart warming that he was concerned for Bella and what she was dating. I think he was trying to be polite but at the same time make her really aware of who she was dating. Bella I thought was rude about it instead of being more casual like she could have. It would've kept Billy from shooting questions at Charlie if she was more casual about the whole thing instead of rude.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
Yup. He was trusting Edwards word and was seeming to be very okay with the whole thing, maybe a little awkward, but okay with it. It was going to happen sooner or later.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
I found him being a little to hard on himself, but at the same time he knew she was a danger magnet, and that even the smallest incident could be hazardous for her. Like, at the game, what if she was struck by lightning? Pummeled with the ball ( :lol: ), or a tree somehow fell on her? All those thoughts would be running through my head too.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

A little bit. It seemed more like he was joking or regretting he said it while saying it. *shakes head*

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
It made me like her more and respect her motherlyness. So sweet and yet so tragic.

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?
I've always loved the character of Billy Black. But, at the same time, I have to fully admit, he jumps to a very prejudiced position here. He has 75 years of proof that the Cullens are very different from other vampires. And yet, he automatically warns Bella. I understand his concern. But, a small benefit of doubt might be warranted. As for Bella's response, I love it. It is perfect Bella. Her openness and her fierce defense and love of her new family warm me greatly.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
I wasn't bothered by it. It rather reminded me of my father. Quiet authority. Plus, I don't think Charlie had any clue what their relationship would become. He was trying to play it cool and let his little girl grow up a little.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
Of course he's too hard on himself. Edward's view of himself is as skewed as he accuses Bella of having. He gives himself no credit for any of the good things he's done, particularly where Bella is concerned. And, he takes responsibility for things that cannot possibly be his fault.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
Not particularly. It's a truth as simple as the sky being blue to Edward. Yes, his emotional journey is profound and took decades. But, now that he's there, it's no more a momentous thing as the sun rising in the east.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
No, not at all. Maybe I saw a little deeper into why she is the kind of person she is. But, it certainly didn't change her for me.

Chapter 17 ~ The Game

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?

Billy obvisouly cares about Bella so I get why he was concern but he still wasn't his place to be nosely. I thought Bella did a good job at keeping him in line.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?

Yes I approve. Its funny how he thought Emmitt was Edward and didn't want Bella to date "Edward" because of how muscular he was. I think that Charle acted the way any typical father who is concerned for his daughter's safety would. He justs was Bella to be with a guy who will treat her right I think.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?

Yes I think that Edward is very hard on himself. I never thought that Edward gave himself enough credict for how safe he keeps Bella despite the greater danger that occurs around them.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

Well I don't think that it came off "off-handedly", but no I wasn't disappointed. I feel like Edward has already said "I love you" in a stronger way through gestures, so this really isn't the first "I love you" scene for Edward. Besides, his love for her goes beyond words, so it kind of fits that he says "I love you Bella" in non-verbal ways all the time.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?



Ya know even after reading all four (five if you count the Bree Tanner one) books I STILL want to know more about Esme. Her, Rosalie, and Alice are the most intriguing characters I think. No my impression of her didn't really change. Her story explains her personality more than anything.

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?

I think that Bella was right to be annoyed with him -- Billy was being too nosy, and it was really none of his business.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?

Yeah, I think he acted appropriately. LOL.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?

Yeah, I do. I think that a lot of the danger Bella was in wasn't his fault at all.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.

Nah. As long as he said it, it's all good.

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?

Nope. She still seemed really sweet. :3

1) What did you think of Billy's conversation with Bella and her response?
Billy is concerned, and that makes sense of course. After all, his people are very much afraid of vampires and while they do have the treaty with the Cullens, I don't think Billy has much trust for them. Bella handles it well, though, I think. She turns things back right at him and tells just enough to get him thinking that she is informed about the Cullens and also that she knows that he cannot tell her or Charlie what he knows.

2) Did you approve of the way Charlie treated Edward as the first boyfriend Bella ever brought home?
Yeah. Charlie wasn't that harsh -- he just wanted to know where they were going, what they were doing, and when she would be home. Pretty typical.

3) Edward talks about his inner turmoil regarding constantly putting Bella into danger. Do you think he is to hard on himself?
I think he is a bit too hard on himself but then again, it's better that than the other way around. After all, he really doesn't want to "slip up" and endanger her safety.

4) Edward finally says "I love you". Were you disappointed in how it came out almost off-handedly.
No, not at all. It shows that it wasn't something that he had to think about saying -- it just came out because it was true. :)

5) We learn more about Esme, was your impression of her changed after learning more about her?
I was pretty shocked that she was changed after trying to kill herself -- she seems so very far from depressed now. But it seems like she was in a place where she couldn't forsee life getting any better, but then, now, she seems so very hopeful. Even though she can't see how things will work out for Edward and the girl he loves -- she seems to hold out hope that it will, despite all the troubles. She is such a loving person, and I can't wrap my head around the idea of her trying to kill herself.
