It's amazing how Stephenie was able to create a history so humanly impossible, but with so common characters that makes us think that the story is real. I believe this is the reason for the great success of the Twilight Saga.
"I thought briefly of the clichés, about how you were supposed to see your life flash before your eyes. I was so much luckier. Who wanted a return, anyway? I saw him, and I had no will to fight."

When Did You First Read Twilight (year) and how many times have you read a Twilight Book (total)?
The first time I ever read Twilight was in 2008. I had heard about it before, but I didn't like reading, so I didn't get intersted on it. But when I read Twilight I found out I love to read. It was love at first sight... Actually, at first read.
I really lost count of how many times I read Twilight. Maybe 5 or 6... Around it.
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Why?
Jacob and Edward loved Bella in different ways, but both loved her. Although I like more Edward, I also like Jake. Edward is protective and he's Bella's soulmate, no doubts. And Jacob only did stupid things because he loved Bella and because he needed to try to convince her not to become a vampire, because he wanted her heart beating.
Some people (and Bella herself) think Jacob is Bella's soulmate from present and Edward is her soulmate from the past. I don't think so. If things were just as they should be, Bella would be dead. I mean, if Edward didn't exist, she would have died with the van accident. So she owed him her life. And that means if she stayed with Jake, it would make no sense.
Which Character Are You Most Like?
I guess I'm more like the movie's Bella. I mean, in my opinion there is a certain difference between the movie's Bella and the book's Bella. The movie's Bella is much more shy than the book's Bella, more serious. She has shorter hair. She is clumsy, but not much. And the fashion is very different of book's Bella. She doesn't talk sleeping, and she apparently doesn't have any problem with blood's smell. Somehow, she's more fearless. She calls her parents "mom" and "dad". Considering all these aspects, I think I look more like the movie's Bella.

"When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end." - Twilight (Preface)
" 'And so the lion fell in love with the lamb...' he murmured. I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word. 'What a stupid lamb,' I sighed. 'What a sick, masochistic lion.' " - Twilight (13. Confessions)
"Because there was just one thing I had to believe to be able to live - I had to know that he existed. That was all. Everything else I could endure. So long as he existed." - New Moon (4. Waking up)
"And the last seven months meant nothing. And his words in the forest meant nothing. And it did not matter if he did not want me. I would never want anything but him, now matter how long I lived." - New Moon (20. Volterra)
" 'Do you really have any idea how important you are to me? Any concept at all of how much I love you?' He pulled me tighter against his hard chest, tucking my head under his chin.
I pressed my lips against his snow-cold neck.
'I know how much I love you,' I answered.
'You compare one small tree to the entire forest.' " - Eclipse (1. Ultimatum)
" 'You don't understand. 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' " - Eclipse (27. Needs)
"When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give your beloved, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?" - Breaking Dawn (Book One; Preface)
" 'Now you know,' I said lightly and shruggerd 'no one's ever loved anyone as much as I love you' " - Breaking Dawn (Book Three; 39. The Happily Ever After)
"These violent delights have violent ends
Dying in their triumph, like fire and powder
Wich as they kiss consume." - Romeo and Juliet (Act II, Scene VI)
"Eyes, look your last!
Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you
The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
A dateless bargain to engrossing death!" - Romeo and Juliet (Act V, Scene III)
"I don't think so. I agree that, maybe, Jacob wanted Bella mostly out of competition with Edward, but Bella loved Jacob and besides I don't like them together, I know that's true. Not just because she needed him. We can see that in…"
"Twilight really changed my life.
It sounds silly, but before I read Twilight, I used to have much fear of vampires. And this book really changed my way of thinking and acting. Before I used to do the first thing that came to my head, but I learned…"
