1. At what point were you worried for Bella's safety with the thugs? Or did you have some idea that Edward would show up just in the nick of time?
I was worried almost immediately. I could totally feel myself in Bella's shoes and I would have been running and screaming the first second that they tried to follow me. I know that's not her, but yes, I was worried from the start, they definately seemed like bad news. I honestly had no idea that Edward would come. I kind of expected either Jessica or Angela to show up, but its much better the way it happened 2. How did you feel about Edward's emotional reaction to the whole situation? Were you afraid of him? Were you worried for Bella?
I felt his reaction was justified and still being a bit leery of how Edward felt for Bella it really showed me that he cared and was concerned in order for him to get that worked up over someone trying to hurt her. I hadn't thought about the fact that he could hear the thug's thoughts and how disturbing that would be to him. I was only afraid that he would do something bad that would change his relationship with Bella or make her dislike him.3. Were you surprised that Edward told the truth so quickly about his ability to mind read? Had you guessed that this was his secret?
I really was surprised that he said it so quickly. It seemed to good to be true, I expected him to be cold and harsh like he was after the accident regarding himself. I had kind of gathered that something like that was going on, I wasn't sure if he was reading minds or just hearing things from really far away. Bella just says a couple of times that Edward seemed to act like he could hear people from across the room or he would turn when no one had said his name. So I knew something was going on.4. What was your personal theory as to why Edward can't hear Bella's mind the first time you read the book?
I thought maybe it was because he was falling for her, and somehow he wouldn't fall for her in the same way if he could hear all her thoughts. I also wondered if as they got closer he would eventually be able to hear her. I also wondered if there was something special in a supernatural way about Bella. I had lots of thoughts.5. Did it concern you at all that Edward keeps such a close watch over Bella? Did it seem somewhat like a stalker to you or did you just brush it off?
Haha, it should concern me, but it didn't I guess I was too busy swooning...
