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 think we all knew that Breaking Dawn was going to have a happy ending. Can't have that without Bella. But we also knew that there was going to be some serious conflict, and Bella would probably face a near death situation again. I was sure she would escape again, and for the final time.

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

Oh Lord, I nearly went insane trying to figure this out. I had to read it several times, and even then I was just in a daze. I think I thought for a second that it was Edward biting her, but I also thought it might have something to do with Jacob. I think I kind of thought that when Bella changed, Jacob wouldn't love her anymore, and although he still cared about her, it would be his job to take her down because they broke the treaty or something? I don't even know, I was going crazy trying to figure it out. Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have imagined who it really was referring to.

-Ooh I didn't know! I was pretty sure she wouldn't die... but not positive.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
-I thought it was Edward ): But I really really didn't want it to be him!

I really thought she was done for this time so that she can finally be transformed into a vampire without Edward feeling guilty that she does not have another choice. I mean this is the last book she has to become a vampire.

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

I really thought this was Edward never really thought there would be somebody else who she loves that will kill her.
You may be brave enough or strong enough to live without me, if that's what's best. But I could never be that self-sacrificing. I have to be with you. It's the only way I can live - Bella

I honestly didn't know. I thought she could only die 2 ways. If it was her enemy. Or if she was being changed. I kind of thought it was her enemy trying to kill her.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
After that I was thinking it was one of the Cullens that could actually handle changing her. Carlisle. But I know she loves Alice and she promised she would, and then there was Edward. I wasnt sure which one it was.
I ♥ Jacob Black.

1.Well, I thought she would escape again, like in the three first books, but you never know...
2.I first thought she was talking about Edward, so I was really anxious. After reading Book1, I remember calling my friend and analyzing the few lines in the preface, whether she talked about Edward or the unborn baby, but we had both no idea.
I love you.
That's why we're here.

I knew she would escape. She had to. Stephenie couldn't be as mean as to kill her off!

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
I knew it was Renesmee. I actually read the entire saga in five days in November last year, after Breaking Dawn was released. By the time I read that one, I'd already cheated and read the FAQs on Stephenie's website, so I kinda knew who she was talking about. I'm a little disappointed now that it wasn't a surprise! :(

Some of my friends commented that this series is young adult, so I had a feeling it would be a happy ending, that if someone died in the end, it would be minor characters.
So I always kinda knew Bella would survive.

2. Bella says that she loves the person killing her. Who did you think she was talking about?
I for sure thought it was Edward changing her, in a sense, killing her humanity.
Didn't see this one coming at all.
Before I read the book, I also heard a friend tell another friend about how Bella and Edward don't have sex in the book. I think she meant SM did not write it in detail, but I misunderstood and thought they don't have sex AT ALL, so I didn't know she would get pregnant a few chapters in.

~I knew she had to escape somehow because i knew that the book would be in Bella's point-of-view. Bella can't just say "I died." that would make no sense at all. :shock:

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

~I thought about the transformation scene, but I wasn't sure.
