1. As usual, the preface hints that Bella is facing death. Did you think she would escape again, or did you think this time would be for real?

I thought that, once again, she would escape.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?

I thought that she was either talking about Jake killing her for being changed or Edward actually changing her.

I thought the danger was going to be real. The Volturi had been too quite for too long...

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
I thought she was talking about Edward, but I took it into a figurative context.

I was hoping she would die because I don't believe you can escape your fate, and seeing as this was her fourth time nearly dying, I'm pretty sure that she was supposed to die. But, of course, I knew she wouldn't die because this is Stephenie Meyer we are talking about. There are parallels between her and the Disney Channel. She sugar-coats a lot of things.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
I knew it was Edward and she was being turned into a vampire.

1. As usual, the preface hints that Bella is facing death. Did you think she would escape again, or did you think this time would be for real?I thought she was talking about a different kind of death. Like she was being changed, and that it hurt so bad, that it was like death.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
I was absolutely sure it was Edward. I thought he was changing her.

I thought she would survive. I mean what kind of story would it be?

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?

When I first read it I thought she was talking about Edward. My mind also went to Jacob, it never occured to me that a baby could/would be involved.

I just knew that Bella was gonna survive somehow, she always does. She always comes close but someone always rescues her. It gets kind of annoying after a while though, someone always having to save her from certain death. But that's okay because usually its Edward doing the saving. :mrgreen:

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
I actually guessed that Bella would be having a child in BD, but never considered that the preface was possibly about the baby. I thought it was about Edward killing her or something and she didnt want to fight back for some reason? I don't know i was confused.

But as soon as I read Edward's reaction to Bella's pregnancy I realised that was what the preface was about, and I read it again and it made sense.

No, I did not think that bella was going to acctually die in the story. I think after reading Stephenie Meyers stories that it was pretty odvious that she was not going to kill off our Bella, and to be honest I am glad she didnt... I dont like stories with a bad ending.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
When I read the preface I Thought that it was Edward, and that something went wrong when they were on there honeymoon...

I knew that she would escape. She did in the last 3 books, and I'm sure that most people would be pretty mad if she got killed.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?

I really remember who I thought she was talking about. I think that I may have thought that it was Edward or Jacob.

- Of course, I thought it would be real, but not in the sense that she will never live again. She will just live as a vampire. I knew it would happen eventually, and finally it did. I was literally anticipating it. :)

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
- Edward! Absolutely, Edward! The only person she loves the most is him!

Answers

1. Well my initial thoughts were that she was facing death and this time it was going to end in a different manner, of course my hopes were for her to truly become a part of the Cullen family.

2. I thought she was talking about Edward.
The boys of Twilight are my favorite.
