1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
No, not really. She had achieved what she wanted: She heard the most beautiful voice in the world in her head. So she couldn't care less about the blood, I think.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
Reading way to fast to notice..... I figured it would mean something, but didn't have the energy to consider what.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
They seemed like some sort of gang. Not necessarily bad guys, but strange. And I was concerned since Jacob seemed to so worried about them.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
A bad idea. The meadow was her special place with Edward. And she shouldn't bring Jacob into it. I can understand that she was afraid she might get lost in the woods, but...Bringing Jacob there would sort of mess up the memory I think.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
Yeah. I expected her to completely freak out and faint or something. I thought she handled it really well, considering.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I knew they were wolves. So I knew they were important and going to be important, and paid more attention.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I thought they were goody-goody to the extreme. I had no idea what sort of powers they'd have being wolves, so I didn't know a great lot about the super strength and healing thing. I thought they were being cocky in numbers, but at least doing it for the good of something. I thought they were a bit arrogant.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like it. I mean, I was glad that she wasn't doing it alone, because she'd be lost before you could say meadow and have no idea where she was going or what she was doing... But it was still Edward's place, and Jacob should not be there. I was glad she found it alone in the end.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood? No I don't think she's as sensitive to it as she used to be. She's learned to calm herself down.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it? When Billy didn't sound to concerned about the bears like Charlie was it made me suspicious

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story? With Billy not being suspicious and him treating Sam with respect again I started to have my suspicions that they may be involve somehow.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob? I didn't understand why she would do that with Jacob at all even I new it would be painful for her to go there. It's like how she didn't want to ride motorcycles with Edward in Eclipse why would she want to share Edwards meadow with Jacob??

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?

Yes -- especially considering she passed out after smelling one small drop of blood in Twilight.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

Well, I didn't think as much time would have been spent describing them & talking about them if they weren't important. I knew werewolves were coming before I read the book so I was pretty sure this was foreshadowing.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?

I liked Jacob, of course, but I wasn't sure about the other guys. Quil & Embry just seemed like your typical teenage boys and I got a bad impression of the rest of the guys from Jacob talking about them.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

I couldn't really blame her for looking for it -- and couldn't be mad at her for betraying Edward because he'd already made the ultimate betrayal by leaving. In some ways, she may have been stringing Jacob along & using him.

Yeah, I thought she'd freak.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
Yeah I did.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I knew they were something, and would play a bigger part later.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I thought it was kinda funny, it was hers and Edwards spot, and Jake isn't really Edwards biggest fan

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
yes, i thought that there would have been a larger reaction but i guess shes been so "emotionally tired" that she was still waking up and that part of her hadnt come back yet.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
i thought nothing of it till it stared to pop up everywhere. then it annoyed me!!

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
iffy. i didnt know a lot about them to really have an opinion.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
i respect jacob with all my heart but i saw it as some kind of betrayal. that was bella and edwards place and it should be kept that way. now dont get me wrong, i love jacob, but i saw it as a bit intrusive.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
I think she was really trying to not pass out. Especially cos she knows how hard the Cullens tried when she cut herself at the birthday party, so I think she thinks "if they can do it, so can I". Eg. breathing thorugh the mouth instead of the nose.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I thought it was weird that it kept coming up, so it must have been important. I had no idea what it would mean tho.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I din't like them. They were hurting Jake, and I trusted his opinion, so I thought they must have been some kind of "gang" too.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't like it. The meadow is Edward and Bella's place! Nothing to do wit Jake!

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
A little. I expected her to feel all dizzy and that. But she didn't...

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
At that point, I was sure they were wolves. And of course they were going to play a future role in the book, a very important one.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
I didn't know what to think... so I just kept reading.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I felt sorry for Jacob. He was all happy spending his time with her, and she was trying to find Edward's meadow.

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?
Not really,.. she was so distracted by everything going on. Plus she probably had a concussion lol

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?
I still didn't think very much of it,.. I knew from Twilight to expect the unexpected.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?
Irritated.. hall moniters gone bad.. haha I figured it was like a tribal thing, maybe drugs or something weird. I wasn't super super concerned with it. It's so hard for me to read New Moon, I always feel half distracted and trying not to rush through the pages to find Edward ;)

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?
I didn't really like that at all! It was Edward's special spot that noone knew about except Bella. I understand the reasonings and how she probably would never be able to find it by herself,.. but I didn't think she should bring Jacob there!

1.) Knowing how Bella reacted in chapter five of Twilight to blood, were you surprised when Bella didn't react all that much to the blood?

Yeah, I was a little. But maybe in her mind she was preparing for a life of being a vampire and got used to it. Or like the user above me said, she probably had a concussion and didn't realize she was bleeding.

2.) What did you think about the mention of the bears? Did you consider that it might play a future role in the book or did you not think anything of it?

I knew it was going to be something big, I still just didn't know what it was.

3.) What was your opinion of the La Push guys at this point in the story?


They bothered me a little bit. I was starting to really like Jacob and I didn't like how they seemed to be waiting on him. Wanting him to join. I was upset that he was upset.

4.) How did you feel about Bella looking for the meadow with Jacob?

I thought it was a little weird. That was her and Edwards' spot. I think if Bella could, she'd find it own her own. As she said later on, she was glad when she found and that it wasn't like she remembered. She was glad that Jacob couldn't see her bad reaction to it.
