1) When did you figure out that "Gran" was really Bella? Were you surprised by the fact that she was looking in a mirror, or did you see it coming?
I took me a while, but when she started doing the same movements as Bella I got it. And reading it again, I see that it would be pretty clear if I was paying more attention.2) Do you think that the dream foreshadows anything besides Bella's fear of growing too old for Edward? Why or why not?
I thought this dream was just about her fear of growing old, since it was her birthday the following day, and Edward would be forever 17. I don't doubt that Edward would have loved her all her life, but of course that's not the way she wanted it.3) Were you surprised that Edward wasn't with Bella when she woke up? Why did you think he wasn't there?
The thought did cross my mind. But I just assumed that he was out hunting, or gone home to change and get his car.4) What did you think about Jasper's careful avoidance of Bella before they opened presents? Had you expected them to be closer after the Phoenix trip?
I didn't really think much about it. But I guess it seems natural for him to still keep his distance, since he doesn't know that he can completely trust himself around her. And the last thing he wants is to hurt her.5) What was your immediate reaction to the paper cut? What did you think about what happened after that?
I thought..This is not good. And then Edward threw her into the stack of plates, making her bleed even more. He was just trying to protect her, and Jasper probably would have got to her if Edward hadn't done it. But I was shocked that Jasper attacked. I had not expected that. The only thing I felt sure of, was that Edward would not attack Bella.6) What did you think the repercussions of Jasper's accidental attack would be? Did you think, like Bella did, that she simply wouldn't be allowed to spend time at the Cullen's house any more?
Yes, I thought that her time at the Cullen's house would be more restricted. That she couldn't be there when Jasper was home for example. I knew that Edward would be very upset since what happened is what he fears the most, and he does tend to over-react, but I never imagined that they would all leave.7) With all the mentions of Bella needing a new car, did you think that Edward had actually bought her one?
No way, she would just get mad.8) What did you think about Bella's pleas for a celebration-less birthday? Did you think she was overreacting?
Well..It's the way she is. She doesn't like attention. But I think she should have realized that it was important to the Cullens to throw her a party. And anyway...You can't stop Alice 9) What did you think when Bella said, "Well, maybe Alice will give me what I want?" What did you think about Edward's reaction to that?
I understand Edward's reaction. Of course he would be mad. And I think he want's that decision to be between him and Bella, so it is unfair to bring Alice into it. And as long as he didn't want Bella to become a vampire, it is totally natural for him to be angry when she says something like that.
