1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house? See the Cullen's house. And party.

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave? I would've asked him to leave, but I wasn't surprised he came. He's relentless.

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her? I think he did mean it for Bella, but it was a nice way to remind Edward what Jacob's done.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised? It never surprised me that they did align, but the fact that they both did it without much complaining is what surprised me.

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together? I thought it would work, since they both have to goal of keeping people safe.

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house?
The Cullen's house, people were probably always curious about it and now was the perfect opportunity to go in and see for themselves.

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave?
No, I wasnt surprised, that part was somewhat predictable. I most likely would've asked him to leave just to refrain from making a scene or starting anything. After all the Cullen's were the ones throwing the party for Bella.

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her?
Probably meant originally for Bella. But it probably gave Jacob that much more reason to give it to her knowing what it would do to Edward.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised?
It didn't surprise me, they both did it to protect people that they care about.

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together?
I did have my concerns about how everything was going to be put into play.

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house?
Both I guess they figured if Bella wasn't afraid to be there then they could try to get a glimpse of the inside too.

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave?
I was not surprised that he showed up. As for the second part that answer is NO.

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her?
Mostly because he wanted her to remember him no matter what. Sticking to Edward was probably just a bonus.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised?
I figured it would have to happen sooner or later. I was kinda glad thought because I like both sides. Wolves and Vamps ;)

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together?
I figured that they would have their issues but they were more concerned with all the danger so I knew if would probably work out. Though I was worried on occasion about Jacob. I felt bad about him putting himself through so much to try to hang onto something that was never going to happen.

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house? probably just to see inside the Cullens house. The only people who would want to be w/Bella are Angela, Ben, and Mike.

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave? I was really surprised. If it was me I would have told him to get the heck out of there.

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her? I figured Bella. Never thought about Edward.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised? I was surprised at first that they would agree to work together (on the wolves side anyway. all the Cullens are willing to do whatever it takes to protect Bella but not necessarily all the wolves would)

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together? I was really concerned that they would work together & get a long. I was afraid tempers or egos (werewolves are better & stronger, no vampires are)

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house?

To see the house, definitely. There were only two genuine people there besides the vamps and the werewolves – Angela and Ben. I would say Mike, but I doubt he’d lose his bitterness towards Edward in order to come to his house for Bella – I think he just wanted to see the house like the majority of the others.

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave?

It definitely made me a little uncomfortable at first that he came because I thought there might be a scene. I would not have asked him to leave – I thought she was really rude to him, even though she had a good reason to be distracted.

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her?

I think it was always kind of a double-edged sword. I think he honestly wanted Bella to keep him in mind, and also remind Edward that he wasn’t going anywhere. But I'd really like to believe that it was a much more genuine act than that. He'd been making it himself for months - that took careful consideration. He had time. I think he was processing the fact that he may have to say goodbye to her, and the gift was just him finding a way to stay with her in some aspect. I think it was a gift of love more than anything.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised?

I was only surprised that it happened so easily. I expected more disagreement over it, and more hesitancy.

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together?

I thought there would be altercations, for sure. It definitely makes things more interesting when some people go along more willingly than ever – forming strong bonds, and some get into dangerous fights. It shows complexity in the characters, and reminds the reader that this isn’t just an easy solution – there are reasons it didn’t happen centuries ago.

To see the Cullens house. :P

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave?
I knew he would come. Ofcourse he would come. Gah

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her?
Reminder for Bella, but I instantly knew he probably wanted to annoy Edward too, because hes given her a bracelet - and she wore it. Bella hasn't worn anything from Edward, so Jacobs probably feeling quite smug.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised?
I didn't expect it. But I guess I knew it would happen sometime.

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together?
I thought Jacob would cause a lot of trouble having to work with Edward =/

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house?

Mostly were curious to see the Cullen house

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave?

I knew Jake would come. That's classic Jake! He would not let unwelcoming vampires stop him! I would have asked him to leave for his own safety :D

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her?

More to Bella, he really wanted to have her consider him and choose him instead.

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised?

I expected it for a while, since the Denalis refused to help, it seemed natural and it would make the most sense for the wolves to help since it is in their instinct to kill vampires.

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together?

I had a feeling it would work, there might be a few skirmishes here and there, esp with Paul's temper and Emmett's overenthusiasm, but I know overall it would work.

1. Do you think the majority of the people came to the party to celebrate with Bella or just to see the inside of the Cullen's house?

To see the house, of course! Bella really only had a couple of close friends (outside of the Cullens) in Forks, everyone else just wanted to see the house.

2. Were you as surprised as Bella was that Jacob came to the party? Would you have asked him to leave?

No, I wasn't really surprised. It seemed like a very Jacob thing to do. I would've asked him to leave, just because it seemed to make everyone uncomfortable to have him there.

3. Do you think Jacob's gift of the bracelet was more of a reminder to Bella or to Edward about his friendship and devotion to her?

I think Jacob intended it as a reminder to Bella, but the added bonus for him is that it would probably irk Edward a bit :)

4. How did you feel about the alliance that was formed between the wolves and the vampires? Was it something you had expected for a while or were you surprised?

I was glad both sides were able to get over themselves enough to acknowledge that they could use the help. I also knew that each side wouldn't just stand by and let the other protect what what important to them, so it was kind of expected.

5. Did you think the alliance was going to work or did you have concerns over their ability to actually work together?

I had concerns, particularly when it came to Jacob and Edward working together and how Bella would handle that.
