1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
I was curious. I wondered if it had something to do with "eating" but I wasn't really sure.I knew it was something more than just "camping" though.

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
Stupid Lauren. She's just jealous.

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I loved Jacob! And yes, he liked Bella as more than a friend from the beginning.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
I think he was trying to be "cool" around Bella.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
Anything is possible...

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?

Well, to be honest, I already knew Edward was a vampire, so I had pretty much knew why we was “camping”

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?

I think that every girl has a “Lauren.” Now, this does not mean that I liked Lauren… I felt that she was a bitter person who needed to be put in her place… but her character was good for the story…

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?

I thought he was adorable! You know, in that little brother kind of way. = ) and of course I thought he liked Bella more than he should have, it was pretty obvious!

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?

Probably because of the same reasons we don’t believe in them.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?

No I did not, but I was not thrown off by the realization either.

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
I did wonder what he might doing up there, I knew it was something that had to do with his secret, but I don't think I was entirely sure what it was yet.

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I dislike Lauren, I find her petty and superficial

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I thought he was sweet. I definately got the impression that he was interested in Bella as more than friend. He seemed to really admire her, for both her beauty and companionship. Seems to me that it was refreshing for him to hang out/chat with a girl not from the reservation. His reaction to Bella coming to town was similar to the other boys at Forks HS.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
Because they are fantastical. I wasn't sure if I should believe them. Also when you live in a smaller remote area you tend to believe that not much can go by you unnoticed. I'm sure Jacob figured he would have seen/heard confirmation of those legends by now.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
Not at all, the werewolves were a surprise to me. I thought they were done with generations ago. I did not make the vampire/werewolf correlation until it was spelled out for me, haha!

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?

I figured it had something to do with the fact that he's a vampire. Either he was hunting people up there, or animals.

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?

I hated Lauren automatically. It was obvious that she was incredibly jealous of Bella and all the attention she received from all the boys in their year. Eric, Mike, Tyler, and then the cutest boy in school, Edward! She took out her jealously unnecessarily on Bella. Bella didn't want the attention! Well, from Edward she did...

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?


I actually did like him, but once I realized he was interested in Bella as more than a friend, I rejected him in my head. I did not want him to get in the way of Bella and Edward being together. That judgment affected my view on Jacob for the rest of the book and the next three books.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?

Jacob didn't have first-hand experience with the legends of his people like Bella did. He hadn't seen what Bella had seen: that Edward was impossibly fast, strong, and had very cold skin. She knew that there was something different about Edward, and was more ready to accept a strange explanation because she saw it for herself. Jacob hadn't seen any of the Cullens yet and so had no reason to accept the legends.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?

Yep. I was thinking about the movie Underworld and totally expected to see some werewolves in the books.

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
I thought they were just dare devils.

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I thought she was a jealous b!tch

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I didn't really like him and I thought he was sort of childish.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
Because he wasn't as aware as Bella is.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
Yes I did. As soon as a started NM I was like Jakes totally a wolf.

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
I did, slightly. But I wasn't consumed by the mystery.

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I felt she could go ... away. I thought she was shallow and petty.

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
Oh he definitely found Bella attractive, that's for sure. I did like him, he was cute and endearing.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
He didn't know what Edward was capable of, he was the fourth generation to be told this tale and that played a part in his non-believing.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
No, but then again I litterally just finished Twilight.

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
I just thought about vampire being in superhuman, and that they could camp anywhere

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I thought she may have been the favorite of the local boys prior to Bella's arival, and now she has been replaced, and is jelous

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I liked him, but i saw him as more of a little kid than anything at that point, and he was more than just interested.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
He had been hearing them his entire life, and has dismissed them as nothing more than children's stories.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
I totally expected it. Werewolves vs Vampires is the classic neverending war, the book would not be complete with out them.

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
I was confused because I had never heard of 'vegetarian' vampires. Yeah I wondered because if it wasn't a good place to camp why would the go there no people no food right?

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I really didn't give it much thought.

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I liked (and still do like) Jacob. Yeah I got that.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
Because he probably has never spent time with the Cullens to see the signs.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
Yeah, Jake said when the vampires came around so did the wolves so I expected them.

1. What was your initial thought about the fact that Charlie told Bella Goat Rock wasn't a good place for camping? Did you wonder what else Edward might be doing up there?
The bears thing kind of gave it away for me, and my Buffy soaked mind was thinking "why don't they just buy blood to drink?" but then I got over that

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?
I wondered why girls named Lauren are always mean in books. Bad representation for my name, lol. I pegged it for jealousy instantly

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?
I liked Jacob and it was pretty obvious there was a little crushin' happening there, but unrequited of course.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?
Because they seem ridiculous, no one thinks vampires are for real without having proof other than some superstitious family members

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?
Totally

I wasn't surprised. I knew what Edward was really doing.

2. How did you feel about Lauren and her open dislike of Bella?

Lauren was jealous of Bella and the attention she was getting from the boys, even Edward, who never had paid attention to anyone before. Unfortunately there's lots of girls like Lauren.

3. What was your first impression of Jacob Black? Did you like him? Did you get the sense that he was interested in Bella as more than a friend?

I didn't really think of Jacob one way or another. He was just a plot device so Bella could learn about vampires. Yes, it did seem that he was interested in her, but at that point so was every other boy. I forgot about him until he made another appearance at the end of the book.

4. Why do you suppose Jacob didn't believe the legends of his people as readily as Bella did?

Because Bella realized that Edward fit the description of the 'cold ones' and it was the only explanation of Edward's abilities.

5. Given the fact that the stories about the "cold ones" were true, did you fully expect to see werewolves in the future books?

No, I wasn't thinking that far ahead.
