I both loved and hated this book. This book reminded me of how I felt when I had a break up. I also hated Bella here, giving Jacob false hopes and all. It's just so unfair for Jacob. What I've heard from the people who also read this, they said that this is the worst book of the Twilight Saga. Well yeah, it is the worst so far. I haven't read Breaking Dawn yet but I can say that what they're saying is true. Looking forward hot this would turn out in the Eclipse.
It all happened very quickly then.
Edward threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table...
I tumbled down to the floor by the piano, with my arms thrown out instinctively to catch my fall, into the jagged shards of glass. I felt the searing, stinging pain that ran from my wrist to the crease inside my elbow.
Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm—into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.
Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night...
