1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
Absolutely not lol. Im more outgoing and I would have tried to find the good in the situation, not cry and be depressed.

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
I didnt really think about them..I just thought, Im glad my dad can cook lol.

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
I could tell Jessica was just begging for attention, but everyone else seemed clingy yet wanting to comfort her.

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
I was intrigued! Who wouldn't be??

5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
I started the book knowing he was a vampire so I knew what he was but wasn't exactly sure of his problem.

6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
I was hooked on page 18 lol. (long story)

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
~ Yes I did relate to Bella. That was one of the first draws of the books for me. I'm clumsy, not athletic, a reader, my parents are divorced and they live in different states, one state is sunny and hot the other is wet and rainy, I don't like the rainy place, I live with my dad now, the list goes on.

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
~ They sort of reminded me of my parents. My mom's a little hair-brained, while my dad is a little more sensible. That's how I saw Renee and Charlie.

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
~Mike seemed cool but a little annoying, Jessica was just annoying, and as I've always seen her, Angela was awesome.

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
~I was intregued, like "Why is he looking at her like that?" Even then I still thought he was hot!

5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
~I was curious as to why he was like that. No one spoiled any of it for me so I was left hanging.

6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
~No but I was definatly interested, I wasn't officaly hooked until chapter 3

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
Yeah, actually, I did. In high school I was quiet, a major reader and a major klutz--I almost always leave any sports related activity with some kind of injury.

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
I thought that Renee was a bit scattered and Bella was probably more the care giver--another thing that I could relate to. Charlie seemed like a nice guy who wanted to be a good dad, but was a little out of practice.

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
I thought that everyone seemed pretty nice, Jessica a little too gossipy though. Angela seemed like a very kind girl right away.

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
I was actually intrigued. I wanted to know more about him and the other Cullens.

5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
I had seen the movie before I read the book, but I wanted to know what was behind his behavior, what was he thinking.
6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
I was hooked from the beginning. I really like Stephenie's writing style too.

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?

I sort of could relate to her. I had to move across the globe to a different country when I was 14. I can understand why she'd be worried about going to school where everyone already knew everyone. I am also a bit clumsy, I suck at sports.

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?

Renee seemed like a scatterbrain. Charlie was like the typical dad, not in tune with feelings and emotions, but more gruff and showed his love by actions not words.

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?

I was annoyed at Mike right away LOL :lol:
Jessica was a little annoying too. I actually liked Eric and Angela, they seemed like the nicest of the bunch.

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?

Intrigued for sure!!! Who wouldn't be, the way he was described?? His face was absolutely perfect, such a beautiful boy.

5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?

I knew that he was a vampire, but I did not know he could read minds until later on in the book. So I knew he was odd because he wanted to kill her, but I did not understand why he was soooo frustrated when they talked.

6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?

Hooked right away. The whole Cullen family appealed to me right away.

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?

Not really. I got being nervous about starting a new school and I match her in looks basically. White skin, brown hair and eyes. I would learn to relate to her more though. Especially in her relationship w/ her dad.

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
Basically that their relationship had been "Young love/opposites attract"

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
Mike was ok at first, but got annoying. Jessica seemed like she drank a lot of coffee. (LOL) I liked Angela for the same reason that Bella did.

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
Intriqued. How could I not be?

5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
I got the vampire thing, but I didn't know about the mind-reading. So I was a little like, "Dude, what's your deal?"

6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
I still didn't get it, but my friend said I'd have to suffer through the first two or three chapters.

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
Yes I related very quickly to Bella. We're both shy,and we both think we are normal.
2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
I thought Renee was really outgoing and would allow Bella to do almost anything and I thoght Charlie was reserved but protective about Bella. In a way,a good pair
3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
I thought everyone was really welcoming and nice to her [especially the boys]. Personally, I think Angela is a better friend because they are both shy and they dont lyke that much attention.
4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
I wasn't scared at all because I had a feeling that no matter what Edward wasn't going to hurt Bella.
5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
At first I'm just thinking "Why would he do that??" but later on i understood and felt sorry for him [and awed a bit] having to use so much mental energy to prvent his insticts from surfacing.
6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
I loved the book from the begging;I was immediatly hooked. I'm still desperatly trying to find someone to lend me Eclipse.

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
kinda in a way. i mean, i knew if i was moving to a new place, i would act exactly the way bella acted. but other than that, the only thing is we both have brown eyes and hair.

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
i like both of them for some reason. Renee has a childish quality about her, like me (haha) and i just like charlie for some reason

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
i liked Angela right away, but Mike and Jessica were kind of annoying lol

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with?
Not really, just that i go to school in a small town, my parents are divorced, and i like to keep to myself. :|

2. What were your first impressions of Renee and Charlie?
I thought Renee was nothing like Bella, I think Bella was more mature then Renee. I think Charlie is nice and stays out of Bellas personal life (at first). :)

3. What were your first impressions of the friends Bella meets?
I thought Angela was sweet and friendly. I thought Jessica was self-conscious and jealous. I thought it was funny how noticeable it was that Mike was flirting with Bella. 8-)

4. Were you scared or intrigued by Edward?
I was curious what he was thinking. So...intrigued. :roll:

5. What did you think of Edward's odd behavior?
I thought it was rude but i already knew they would get together. ;)

6. Did this chapter hook you on the book or were you still trying to see what the fuss was?
Well, i already saw the movie and people were asking me about it and telling me to go read it, so i was sorta hooked before i even started reading. :)
