1. What did you think of Bella's epiphany? Do you think she was justified in believing that Edward didn't love her and that the fact that he really did stunned her?
I think that Bella truly couldn't beleive that Edward would love her, and so thats why she so readily believed him when he said he didn't want her in the beginning of the book. And then when she realised that he does actually truly love her, it was very sweet. I think she was actually stunned.2. How did you feel about the way the vote went? Did you understand Edward's reasoning? What about Rosalie's? Do you agree with Carlisle that it's the only logical choice?
I think the vote went well. I can understand why Edward doesn't want her to be a vampire, but at the same time, I don't understand why he wouldn't want to be with her forever! I also understand Roselie's reasoning, and that is actually quite nice of her to say no for the reason that she does. Tho,like Carlisle says, it does seem very logical for Bella to become a vampire, especially with the Voluri and Victoria coming after her, plus the fact that neither Bella nor Edward can live without one another. It makes a lot of sense for Bella to become a vampire.3. Were you as stunned as Bella was when Edward asked her to marry him? How do you feel about Bella's reasons for saying no to him?
I was incredibly shocked!! I was like "woooooooow!", I was so excited, I couldn't breathe! And then when she said no I was like "What?? Why Bella why??"
Her reasons seem a little silly to me, but they are very Bella, so I guess they make perfect sense to her!4. At this point in the series - ignoring what you know from Eclipse and Breaking Dawn - did you think Bella should marry Edward? Did you think she should become a vampire as soon as possible? Or did you think she should stay mortal for a while longer?
I wanted her to marry Edward. And I wanted her to become a vampire. But I think it made sense for her to finish school and stuff first, so I thought after graduation seemed like a perfect time.5. Did you want Edward to be the one to change Bella into a vampire? How would you feel if someone else were to change her?
Yeah I really wanted Edward to change her! I think it seems so much more romantic that way. Like he is saying, "I'll prove I want to be with you forvever" kinda thing.
