Mondays Bite! Twilight Re-Read Along Chapters 16-20

Discussion Questions for Chapter 16-20!
Link up your answers at The Reading Housewives

  1. {SERIOUS question} If you where in Carlisle's position, do you think you would have been able to fight off your vampiric urges? Would you ever bring someone into that life, as he did with Edward and Esme? I am not sure how I would be, I could only hope to be as good as Carlisle. It was pounded in Carlisle's head how evil vampires and the like are, so I can see how his background affected how he lived as a vampire. If you in the end believed as Carlisle about a vampire's soul, there would be no problem changing someone. I like that Carlisle waited til someone was dying to change them. I really believe Carlisle made the best of the hand he was dealt in life.
  2. {FUN question} We are introduced to Edward's playful side in these chapters, before he gets all manic about the new vampires, I think we have a better picture of who he is. If you had to describe him in 5 words, what would they be? Good and Bad qualities, whatever you like! Passionate, Caring, Unforgettable, Protective and I'm having trouble with a fifth word. Can't wait to see other answers for this one ;)   

  3. {LONG question} While re-reading I have been taking notes: observations that I have come across re-reading and comparisons to the movie. One of my notes deals with page 383, in which Edward screams at Alice there is no other option. The first time around I didn't get that he meant the future that Alice saw for Bella as a vampire (because we obviously hadn't gotten to that part), but now that I know the whole story I see that is what he meant... Has this happened to you? Do you have any examples of things that are clearer now or things that you have realized while re-reading? I can't remember what I was thinking the first time I read Twilight, I just remember not being able to put in down! Can't think of any Ah-ha moments.

  4. {PERSONAL question} We haven't talked about this yet, but I think the idea of your human gifts amplifying in your vampire life is interesting (Jasper's control of emotions, Edward's mind reading), what do you think your gifts would be? I'm not sure what I would have, I would be glad to even have a special gift!

  5. {SURVEY question} We are coming to the end of the book, what has been your opinion on this re-read? First, when was the last time you read it? Second, do you feel you like it more, the same, or less this time around? I think the last time I re-read the books was when Eclipse came out on DVD. I enjoy the book more each time I read it, always MORE! *sigh* I finished it a while ago cause I could not put it down and then moved on to re-read New Moon!


  1. That's so true about Carlisle's background! I didn't even think of that when I went to answer! :)

  2. Protective is on almost everyone's list for Edward!

    I couldn't put it down either when I first read it! I read the whole series in 4 about a headache and lack of sleep!

  3. I love your words for Edward...:) And Im ready to read New Moon as well....when I first read these all the family lost mom...they had cereal for dinner all week...hahaha

  4. I wasn't able to put the book down the first time I read it either. Then I almost had a panic attack when my local store didn't have books 3 and 4 in stock. Luckily a friend had them and let me borrow them but I had to wait 2 whole days before I could get my hands on them. LOL

  5. Yes...Unforgettable. Luckily when I read them, they were all out. My friend kept saying I'll loan you mine. No way...I made multiple trips to Target to grab the next one and then the next. I couldn't put them down. I even made my daughter read it to me while I drove. Then I would have to make her stop when it got to a hot part, because she was like 8.

  6. I don't remember what I was thinking when I first read them either, I just read as fast as I could. I almost ate those books.
