1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
When Edward told Bella that it was a good place for bears, I kinda got the picture!
2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I didn't like her. I thought it was a bit rude as Lauren doesn't even know Bella. Plus, it's mainly just jealousy. But there you go - that is high school life. 3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I thought of him as nice kid. Really didn't know too much about him at the point to really make an effort to really like him but of course I got the impression that he liked Bella more than a friend. She was an older girl "flirting" with him!4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
Bella was already suspicious of Edward and his family. The legends just cemented in her mind that something really was up with Cullens. With Jacob, he grew up hearing those legends time and time again. And he didn't have a reason to believe in them. Maybe had he met the Cullens...maybe he could have believed, could have wondered....5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
Yes and no. I think part of it was in Bella's dreams as well that made you wonder what you'd see in future books.
