1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
yes, a little.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Freaky Freaky. They are cool though...

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Bella is just as dramatic as Edward. I knew they would probably make it out, but I didn't know what was going to happen so I was on edge.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
YES!!!!!!! Edward needs a serious chill-pill :-)

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yes. This was such a good story...

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Yes! I was very afraid that something would happen to either Alice or Bella. I kind of figured that Bella would make it out okay because she's the main character, so that made me super afraid for Alice. So on edge! I couldn't stop bouncing in my seat, like Bella.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
When Edward talked about them in Twilight I thought they were kind of noble, respectable group that some vampires looked up to because of their position of power. After Alice explains things more, I liked them less, I thought they were shady and sort of like vampire mobsters. Doing illicit business and deceiving people about it, though I guess they aren't really deceiving people. Don't like them.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Yes! Just like I said in ther first question. Bella is in such a fragile emotional state as it is, that I know she wouldn't see any other option but for her life to end if Edward's life ended. She would never be the same. I could understand her wanting to die if he died.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
Oh! It made me excited for Bella. I wondered if Alice would do it in the near future or not. I knew Edward would be absolutely livid and most likely forbid it. I had a big feeling that he would be a major obstacle in the way of Bella being changed.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yes. I don't know if I thought he was going to die, but I could see him being imprisoned forever in Volterra or something, I knew that whatever happened it would a complete negative effect on his/Bella's life, it it ended badly like she said.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Kind of. It just shows me that Alice doesnt seem them surviving.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
They were kind of scary. But i thought that it was good that they were protective over their secret.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
No. I was happy that she would have an easy way out. A way to be with the one she loved.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
It did. I thought that Bella would finally get what she wanted. I knew Edward wouldnt like that idea at all.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
I was. If he knew that Bella was alive, there would be no reason for him to be putting his life in danger.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Yes. I thought to myself..."Alice better damn well get out in time to see Jasper."

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Ugh, they made my stomach hurt. I hated them.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
It did and it didn't. I was understanding of how Bella could feel that way... how would it be to lose your true love twice? But I was scared for Jacob and his mental wellbeing.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
Oh, it certainly did not. It scared me. I didn't want Alice to have to do that, to risk Bella's life or to risk her own conscience. I was sure Edward would roar with objections.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yes. I was on the edge of my seat, hoping hoping that Bella would make it in time. Though... I kind of thought she'd trip and ruin everything. Nothing against her, she's just a clumsy, clumsy girl.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Yes, I thought she'd had a vision of them all dying.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
I was scared of them.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Yes, I thought it was going to end up just like Shakespeare's story.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
Yes, I knew she was going to get her wish. But I thought Edward would be indifferent to this, after all he supposedly didn't love Bella.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
TERRIFIED.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
Yeah, but I wasn't exactly sure at the time what she was referring to or if there was something we didn't know.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
Mostly my thoughts were fear. But also, kind of curious to see how exactly it would turn out.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
Yeah, a little. But I convinced myself it wasn't going to come to that.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
Yes!! I was very happy with that because I really wanted Edward and Bella to be together forever and for her to be a part of the Cullen family. I thought he was going to be pissed for sure but it didn't matter because ultimately it is Bella's choice.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
Yes and no. I had a feeling he was going to be stopped by one person or another. But I was thinking to myself "HURRY BELLA, GET YOUR MANNN!!!!!" ahhaha.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
-Oh yes ! I got that weird feeling in the pit of my stomach.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
-I thought they were pretty harsh rulers, althought I didn't think of them as bad...yet.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
-YES! I was so scared, haha.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
-I was soooo happy when Alice said that ! I like smiled to myself, haha. I knew Edward would be wicked wicked mad though.

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
-Yeeeees ): I knew deep down he wouldn't die...but i was still so so so nervous and I could feel myself cringe every second I got closer to know what was going to happen.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?

Most definately. It was then that I fully realized that this whole trip was life-threatening.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?

I hated them, of course. They were going to kill Edward after all. And then later Bella. But when they were all finally safe, I thought that maybe the Volturi wasn't all bad.

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?

In the back of my mind, I knew that SM wouldn't kill off the two main characters. But in th front of my mind, I thought it was a possiblitly. But, I rather have them both gone than to have to read another book like the beginning of New Moon. Too depressing.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?

It got me very excited. I was thinking that maybe it would the transformation would happen in Eclipse. I knew that Edward would object, but how long was it going to be before Bella, being the klutz that she is, would find herself on an early death bed?

5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?

Of course. Again, I knew that SM wouldn't just kill off Edward but in the moment, I was terrified that she might do it.

1) Alice told Jasper she would get out, and then told Bella she hated lying to him. Did this put you on edge?
no of course not....YES!! I really thought they wouldn't make it alive because at that time I didn't even know there was an Eclipse so go figure I really thought they were going to die....I was clutching my shirt and biting my lip when I read that part.

2) We learn a great deal about the Volturi in this chapter. What were your first impressions of the Volturi?
sincerely I found them kind of creepy. The description they have about them is just bizarre so I really thought they were freaky

3) Bella found it comforting to know that if they were too late she would have an "easy way out." Did this frighten you, considering the Romeo and Juliet illusions?
hm...a little...I was mostly scared that they were going to get killed but still yeah.

4) Alice promises to change Bella. Did this make you optimistic for the future? How did you think that Edward would react to that?
Well Edward would never allow it...that much was clear but knowing that Alice was going to change Bella did give me some faith rewarding their future
5)Edward's plans were set, the steps for exposure in motion. Were you afraid for his life?
of course..just because Emmett is my favorite doesn't mean I don't love Edward...I was confident Stephenie wouldn't kill Edward though because I mean she created him so therefore she loved him as him being the main charcter so no I don't think she would have killed him . I still feared he would get hurt though
