Q. Have you ever had to start over in a new place, like Bella did in Forks? This new place could be a school, job, or town... just something with a new setting. How easy or difficult was this for you?
I think the biggest change I ever made echoes Bella's. I left my mom in Canada when I was 14 and went to live with my Dad (who I barely knew) in North Carolina. The transition was very challenging but I loved my high school. It was such a different learning and social experience than high school in Canada. I couldn't believe that on Friday nights everyone was at the school basketball games. I made some great friends, but alas there was no Edward to keep me there so I only stayed a year.
Q. Do you picture the actors from the movie as the characters in the book while you are reading?
NO. Not at all. I watch the movies, I like them because the essence of Meyer's story is there but I think with the exception of Jacob everyone has done a terrible job- I liked the first Victoria too. Robert Pattison is not my Edward, and though I like Kristen Stewart, she plays Bella in such a depressing way- not how I pictured her.
Q. What are your first thoughts on meeting Edward in Bella’s Biology class? At first he was annoyed by her presence, but then after a week away he returns & finds him self very interested in her. Do you think this helped or hindered the storyline?
It definitely made him hotter. :) What is it with guys who ignore us? It adds to the mood of the story and certainly made me read faster- I wanted to know why he was so "repulsed" by her.
Q. Out of the secondary characters Bella meets at school, who is your favorite and why? (I am referring to the humans, not the vampires in this question)
That's a hard answer as I don't pay as much attention to them as the vamps. But I'd have to say Mike. I love the fact that he's crazy for Bella and just can't have her.
Q. There is a lot of dialogue between Edward and Bella in these first few chapters that I feel played a major role in developing their relationship. What are some of your favorite quotes? or moments?
"I said it would be better if we weren’t friends, not that I didn’t want to be"
"I decided as long as I was going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly"
"Don’t be offended, but you seem to be one of those people who just attract accidents like a magnet. So… try not to fall into the ocean or get run over or anything, all right?"
I'm having a hard time pacing myself through the book and not just plowing through like I usually do.....
You'd never know that I've read my copy like a million times as it's still in pristine condition-I'm crazy like that- how many of you have underlined or highlighted copies of twilight?
