I just wanted to say that their relationship was different while Bella was pregnant.

Maybe she has reasons, let her explore more and create more possibilities, let her works mature through her characters. She is yet a newborn in the literary world. And being compared to veterans. Wow! it is something! In my personal point of view, intentionally a writer creates blind spots and loop holes to make her readers interested, dissatisfied and crave for more. A strategy to create more angles for possible stories, and a strategy to stir the emotions of her readers. That makes him/her a good writer.
Emphasis mine (I like doing that ^_^)
I can, with actual authority, say that this statement is wrong. Ms. Meyer has a college degree in American Literature, which means she has read and analyzed some of the greatest authors this nation has to offer, which also includes a few of the greatest authors of all time. She knows - she cannot fail to know - what constitutes good writing, and she's still chosen to engage in shoddy writing full of Deus Ex Machinas, plot holes, and barely-concealed Mary Sues. Objectively speaking - in terms of grammar structure, internal world consistency, character development - Stephenie is not a good writer, but rather a very bad one. What she is is a popular writer who knows how to tug on her audience's emotions by plying her traded in wish fulfillment and supernatural fantasies.

I too have never been so obsessed with a series of books, and have read tons.
I have to say Renesme Creeped me out at first, the whole Pregnancy thing, Drinking blood, Breaking her bones.. I almost did not finish the book. But a fellow fan convinced me to continue. I really leared to love JAcob from this book. MAde me wish she had picked him.
But thats another thread. I must confess, BEfore I even read the part, I KNEW He would imprint on her. I was not grossed out by that, I found it sweet. I will say the whole tome of that book had a different effect on me. So as not to get too long winded.
I won't elaborate.
THe last thing I thought was WOW there can be more books, With Nessie and JAcob. I secretly was really sad when I read those two words at the end of BD. But Hope springs eternal. And I think SM knows what her fans love.
