Yes, the girl's name is Bree Tanner, in the Short 2nd Life, thanks for the input :D

I've read the scene where Bella with Jacob after Carlisle has mended his broken bones. That's a very sad scene, I feel like I'm the one who's torn apart. It's hard for all three - Bella, Jacob and Edward - though with Edward, it's hard to tell because he's so compose, so good with controlling almost all his emotions in front of Bella but I bet his inner is in thunderstorm and when Bella's not around, he will leash out.

The epilogue, where Jacob couldn't hold it anymore and transformed into a wolf so that he will not feel any human emotions, just go with instinct, another heartbreaking moment. I think everyone who's in heartache wishs that we can move into another world without having to face the heartbroken feeling so I think that's what Jacob did.

I'm just past the battle where Bella is spending some time with the injured Jacob. She wants to tell him that she can't see him anymore but she can't make herself do it. Yet she knows that she can't live without Edward.

Oh, the girls name is Bre Tanner, right. She is the one the extra book is about, The 2nd Short Life of Bre Tanner. I haven't read that one yet, ever. But I'm soooo ready to finish reading so that I can be ready for the movie! My Scene It points are ready to go!

I finished reading about the night before battle, when Edward and Jacob had a conversation while Bella thought everything was a dream.

Then came next day, moments before the battle with the new vampire, Jacob sort of losing control, nearly going to fight blindly after knowing Bella has accepted Edward's proposal. And thus, Bella beg him to stay and asked him to kiss her. (I hate this scene, Jacob seemed almost abusive to Bella when he kissed her, like "i'm so angry, I'm not going to let you go easily to the other guy")

Then Jacob went off to join the rest of the team (Cullens and wolves) to fight the bad guys. Bella was left feeling self-hatred after her kiss, feeling so ashamed to Edward but Edward somehow think more rational not going into a jealous rage (but then, Edward is famous of holding his temper or very good at pretending, hehe).

While Edward and Bella at the camp site, Victoria and Riley came. Fights between Edward and Victoria, Riley and Seth. I love the action part and yay, Victoria lost! Though, in the book, Bella didn't cut herself like in the movie, when she let out a gasp that Victoria momentarily lost focus at Edward and Edward took the chance to make his final move.

Then after everything seemed to be fine, Edward and Seth, together cried in agony - it was Jacob! He tried to save Leah from a forgotten vampire but he ended up getting badly injured. The wolves brought him quickly back to the reserve, just in time before the Volturi arrived.

Poor small girl, the new vampire who the Cullens negotiated to surrender. I think the Cullens can train her to be vegetarian or at least, not a blood-lust vampire but the Volturi (Jane, especially) didn't like the outcome (the Cullens won!) so I suspected Jane ordered Felix to kill the girl (gosh, can't remember her name!).

(I accidentally post this in wrong forum, hehe)

I reached the part when the wolves and the Cullens clan had a compromise, to start training together to fight off the newbies vampires! Good thing Jacob and his friends came to the graduation party and they knew about the threat from the new-born vampires. Though, Bella was eaten by worry, she was afraid of the Cullens and the wolves get hurt or worse, killed. But I think the most of all, Bella worried of her became a liability for Edward as long as she's still remained as a human.

I'm still on New Moon but catching up this Thanksgiving weekend. I'm on Chapter 21 Verdict. The really interesting conversations to read in Volterra would be the ones in everyone's thoughts. I far more interested in what Edward is hearing in thoughts and seeing Alice's visions than in what's actually being said. Not to mention what Aro sees and Marcus. Write that SM!!

Sorry I've been so MIA, (deep breath) it's been busy...

I hope everyone is still hanging on! Can't wait for BD2!

I've reached the part when the Cullens is preparing to fight the new vampires, when Edward said they would hunt more blood to get stronger. Bella didn't want to be "babysit" by the Cullens so she suggested to go to the Blacks. When she was hanging out with Jacob, he confesed that he's in love with her and after several attempts from Bella to reject him nicely, he forced a kiss! Uhuh, Jacob, where did you get that idea from? Bella's first reaction was to struggle but Jacob was too strong so she waited with no response till the kiss ended then when Jacob pull back, she punched him and broke her hand! When Edward knew about this, he was so furious! Charlie, I really hate him at that time because he was too double-standard - if a guy force a girl, the dad should be so angry not tell that guy, way to go! Then he sided with Jacob when Edward called him out - it's logical for a boyfriend to get mad, especially when Bella get hurted, too.

Still on New Moon. Just read Chapter 18 The Funeral. This is a pretty emotional chapter for me. I feel like Jake and Bella were never closer ..literally or figuratively. I want to crush Jake in my arms. He was so close. But Edward is..Edward and she had no choice but go to Italy. My heart aches in the movie during these scenes. Jake begging Bella to stay. He's not just begging her to choose life over death. He's begging her to choose him over Edward. A recurring theme in their relationship with Jake always coming up short. Even after all this time I feel ice water in my veins when I read "he's going to Italy". Even the first time I read it, I got it.

More flashbacks - first, from Jasper, when the Cullens deduced that all those killings in Seattle must be from the young vampires. He told Bella how he became a vampire during war time, how he handled and trained young vampires, even brought lots of victories in wars against other clan in the southern area. But then he came out from the "partnership" with the clan head, Maria, and went away with his friends but still restless. And things became more in peace when he met Alice (so sweet!).

Second flashback, the stories from the tribe (can't remember how to spell their name), first about how they became Spirit Warriors and join their spirits with wolves and then how they met the Cold Ones, the sacrifice of the third wife of the last Great Leader (or something that sounds like that, again, can't remember the correct phrase) and lastly, made a treaty with the Cullens.

I think I'm starting to get dreams from the Twilight series, hehe.

I'm still on New Moon unfortunately. Work has exploded, we're booked for 3 weeks, and my home life has been overwhelmingly busy. I've had to say no to some things recently because I really do want to read the books, I just do not have time and it makes me so sad. I should be able to come up with 30 mins of reading time in a day, but it's a big battle for me. My cousin manages the big movie theatre nearby and he sent me a message this morning saying tix for AVX go on sale today!!! I'm so excited!!

Just finished Ch 7, 8 and 9. While Bella had to stay at the Cullens' (Alice kidnapped her for Edward, hehe), Rosalie took that opportunity to ask her to change her mind about converting to vampire and she told Bella about she became into vampire and what Bella might missed when she (Bella) became a vampire.

On next day, at school, Jacob "rescued" Bella, that was exciting! As usual, they hang out at the beach and garage/Jacob's fixing workstation. It's so sad that they were best friend and life was so much easier when no animosity between Jacob and Edward and now, it was harder for them to be what they used to have. And when Bella dropped the news that she would be no longer be human, Jacob exploded (luckily, didn't turn into wolf and hurt Bella!) and Bella - she was furious, too - left to go back to Cullens'.

At night, a pleasant surprise when she was woken up by Edward :D Sounds so nice and warm to have someone like Edward when waking up, especially after a fight and missing Edward a lot :D

On next day, when Alice returned Bella to her home and Edward came for a visit, another surprise but this time, not so pleasant coz there was a vampire in Bella's house. Good news, this brought a new (temporary) cooperation between Cullens and the Pack.

I've reached the part when Bella back to Fork with Edward. And Jacob kept ringing her house while she was away, checking whether she's still human. Then when they went to school, a confrontation between Edward and Jacob - I hate it that Jacob made Edward read his memories about Bella's lifeless moment when Edward was gone (book #2 New Moon), I can't believe Jacob could do such low thing!

Interesting part when Bella discussed this with Angela (trying to get 3rd party's opinion who's not influenced by vampires and werewolves and of course, know nothing about those two creatures). I agree with Angela - Edward and Jacob were obviously jealous! Yeah, yeah, the cold relationship between vampires and werewolves might be the reason of why those two guys couldn't be together in same room but they still have human feelings and I'm sure they still capable of getting jealous over Bella, hehe.

I'm currently reading Eclipse using ebook instead of paper, most probably because I'm sneaking reading the book when I could read - most of the time where I don't have the hard copy version available.

Just reading your notes is making me anxious to get back into reading the books. Definitely back on when I get back from New Jersey next week. I might even get it on Nook and read on my laptop if the work isn't too much while I'm there!

I've started read Eclipse early this month then stop for a while, hehe. The first few chapters, Bella was still grounded, Charlie still gruff towards Edward and Edward still hang out at Bella's bedroom. After seeing Bella's good behaviour, she got "parole" and on condition to balance ger life, be with friends other than the Cullens (he meant Jacob, I think Charlie still hoped Bella chose him over Edward, hehe). However, Edward strongly against the idea, saying werewolves were toi dangerous for her (perhaps jealous, too!)

I also reached part when Edward tricked Bella to see Renee, to use airline tickets bought by Esme.

Well, I jumped into Eclipse with both feet. I'm on chapter 2. I worked a night shift on no sleep and only got 3 hrs of sleep when I came home. Then the dog started barking and I couldn't go back to sleep. I've been a vegetable all day. Watching movies. I will probably go crawl into bed in a while...and read again...but hopefully i sleep. a lot. and sleep perchance to dream...dream of Eclipse!

I just setup the forum for those who have finished New Moon :D And based on my calculation (hehe, sounds like a geek!), if we read a book in a month, we can finish the series before BD2's month (November) :D

Oh! are we already supposed to be starting Eclipse?!! Well, I guess I'd better catch up! I just finished chapter 17: Visitor. Now the excitement begins in New Moon! It's interesting to me how the movie gets intertwined into my memory and it surprises me how much I have forgotten was in the book!
