1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
Yes, and I still didn't understand what she meant when she made it. I think by the 3rd time reading Eclipse I understood the connection 100%

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
Jess will be Jess. Drama Queen and attention-seeker. I would've acted the same way Bella did

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
Na, she still would've been worried, but not as much.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
Bella doesn't mind that he can't give her everything. She does think the world of Charlie, but the best dad line was probably a bit too much :S.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?

I kind of saw it coming, based on Edward's reaction when they found the evidence of the guy in her room.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?

Jessica was just kind of "in the moment." I probably would've reacted the same way.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?

It seems like it's a little of both. Maybe she would have been more excited without the danger of the newborns, but she still hadn't worked out how her new life was going to work.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

Completely honest. Bella doesn't seem like a very materialistic kind of girl, and I think she really did appreciate Charlie's mostly "hands-off" approach to parenting. She also probably appreciated not having to be so much of the adult as she was with Renee.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
I hadn't already figured it out, but when Bella did, I wasn't surprised. It made sense once I thought about it, and once I realized that, I immediately thought of Victoria. I thought, "Who else would make an army of newborns to go against Bella?"

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
Yes, I probably would have acted the same way.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
I think she would have been less worried if she hadn't figured out what was going on...who wouldn't be worried with a bunch of vampires hunting you? I still think she would have been worried about the end of her human life, and about the thought of having to marry Edward before he would change her.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
I think Bella was being pretty honest, because they were very alike, and they lived well together.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
No, I wasn't surprised at all. I knew it was someone working for Victoria when Bella noticed her stuff missing and Edward didn't recognize the scent. Everytime the topic came up I wanted to yell for someone to put it together lol.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
Jessica was being true to her fake personality. She was caught up in the moment but she was being fake because she was so overly excited to see Bella. It would have been one thing for her to forgive and forget and wish Bella well, but she was all "lets hang out" lol. I probably would have reacted like Bella and just let it go because Jessica is so not worth it.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
I think she would have been more excited if the danger wasn't there. Bella could have focused more on the moment and being with her friends instead of worrying what will happen with the newborns. Yes, she was worried about the end of her human life and what that would mean but the danger seems to be what is mostly keeping her from enjoying graduation.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?Honestly I think she was being pretty sincere. Some of it was wanting to put him at ease because soon she would be leaving him and she wants him to know that he was a good dad. But, when you think about it he has done the best he can for her. He let her come live with him when she wanted to, he tried everything to bring her out of her depression in New Moon, he had the awkward sex talk with her and those are just some of the major things. After everything she's put him through in the year that she has been there, he has been a pretty good dad to her.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
I wasn't surprised. I made the connection at some point, can't remember when. That several vampires with different purposes would be coming after Bella at the same time, would be just to much of a coincidence. So I figured it all would have to be connected to Victoria.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
Jess is just Jess..She is fake and shallow. I think that Bella reacted just fine. I would have done the same thing.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
Maybe a little, but she would still be worried. Thinking about becoming a vampire, about leaving her family, about the pain, about her new life with Edward. And not to mention, Bella didn't really like occasions, so she probably wouldn't have enjoyed the center of attention much anyway.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
I think she was honest. She probably exaggerated a bit, but the essence of it was true. She didn't want the kind of dad that would bother her with talk about emotions, and spend a lot of time with her. She liked the way Charlie was. And I think they made it work really well at home. So Charlie would be the kind of dad Bella wanted.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out? No. I figured it out when someone came and stole her scent (clothes and pillow)

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted? yes why act like a b. Just smile and nod. It will be over soon.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life? I don't think Bella has it in her to get to overly excited about large gathering. I do think she would have been nervous about being changed. Maybe even had made the decision to wait a little bit.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation? Very he is the best dad for her.

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
No, I assumed this several chapters ago.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
I went to school w/ girls like that. Havent' talked to them in years, then they see you out and they are like "omg! How are you!" I'm like gawl leave me alone, but I would never say anything rude. So I would have reacted the same way.

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
I think she may have been a little more excited, but she would still be thinking about ending her life.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
Probably pretty honest. I mean he let her live in Forks w/ him the past couple years. She pretty much does as she pleases. Even though she was grounded w/ all the stuff that happened in Twilight and New Moon, he was still less harsh than most parents would have been. Also, she met Edward so in a way maybe she thanks Charlie for letting her live here. If she didn't, she would have never met Edward. Also, Charlie gave her space and she likes that.

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
i wouldve been like, "ummm... since when are we friends, again?" :?

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
i dont think she would be thinking anything of her human life. it would have all been vampire, vampire, vampire, edward, edward, edward.... you know?

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?

1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
I was surprised, I had no idea that they were related! When she realised what was happening, I could feel teh panic that she was feeling - it took me by surprise! And I was like "oh no, Edward is going to go mental!!" :lol:

2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
I would have done the same. They were friends before, and it's nice to end high school on a good note with everyone! I would have acted the same as I wouldn't want to fight with people at my graduation!

3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
No, I don't think Bella would ever be excited about graduation, even if she wasn't with Edward & wasn't gonna become a vampire LOL.

4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
I think she was being honest. I think Charlie would do anything for Bella if she asked him to; help her if she were in trouble etc. I just think their relationship is more casual than a typical relationship between parents and their children. But just because they don't tell one another that they love each other all the time doesn't mean that Charlie is any less of a parent to her.
