Re: CHapter 3 ~ Phenomenon

1. Bella is surprised and touched that Charlie put snow chains on her truck because she isn't used to people taking care of her. Later on we know that Renee called Bella hysterical to have her come home yet Renee wasn't in Phoenix. Given all of this what were your impressions of Renee? She hasn't be...

Re: Chapter 2 ~ Open Book

1. Where did you think Edward had gone off to at the start of the chapter and why did you think he had vanished? I didn't have an idea, exactly, from the text itself. However, I did know before I read the book that Edward was a vampire, so I assumed that it had something to do with that -- going off...

Re: Chapter 1 ~ First Impressions

1. Did you relate to Bella right away? If so, what part of her did you identify with? Relate and identify aren't the same, at least not to me. I found her very relatable, even if I could not identify with everything in her backstory. After all, I grew up in a happy, loving home with parents who have...

Re: Q and A with Shannon Hale

Honestly, I found the birthing to be a bit gruesome myself, which I find odd because I can sit through watching a person being beheaded among other things on a show I watch with no problem at all. My problem stems with the lack of violence in BD is that we're finally given a Bella that can actively...

Re: Contradictions in the Guide

This issue has been put up for debate before. I don't think if it were a supernatural power, it would make his struggle any less admirable. It doesn't say that he doesn't struggle or that it is easy for him. The example indicates that it gives them the strength. What monumental strength that must b...

Re: Q and A with Shannon Hale

This was one of my favorite parts of the guide. It was great to hear more about her process, especially character development. It actually helped me stand up for my own characters when, just a few hours later, some of my critique group members were suggesting that they do things that are 100% out of...

Re: Contradictions in the Guide

2) Vampires listed with "no quantifiable supernatural power"; Specifically, I look at Carlisle. But, there is also an argument for Laurent and Siobhan as well. Listed specifically in the section on supernatural powers, it gives the example of, "a human with a deep value for human life becoming a va...

Newbie from California

How did you pick your screen name? It's been my screenname elsewhere, before. Pixie is a nickname from childhood, and I used to be a competitive figure skater. How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite? I saw it in the bookstore and thought it looked good, so I bought it. I r...
