Eclipse

So it's done. I finished the third book. I must say I'm exhausted emotionally! I really got myself into it and...well I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't read it, so if you haven't read it, but want to...STOP READING! I'll just say I'm not sure I agree with Bella. Between a vampire and a werewolf, I think I would've chosen the werewolf. And I just don't understand this connection between Bella and Edward. It kind of makes me sick that Bella can't do ANYTHING w/out him. (Gag). Yes, he is beautiful and mystical and wonderful, but c'mon. I mean, really?? I was cheering for Jacob. I felt like my heart broke when she made her choice. I had a big throbbing sobbing headache when I read that last chapter and I knew all along she was in love with him. I will hang on to the glimmer of hope that may be out there for Jacob. Am I crazy? It seems like she could lead a more normal life and not have to say goodbye to anyone (except the Cullen's and Edward), but she could have a family and kids and *sigh* Jacob is warm-blooded. Does she honestly and really want to be immortal? And have to drink blood and have to live that life even if it is w/ Edward? Someone enlighten me. She is in love with both of them, but claims to love Edward more. Interesting. I just don't know... I do know that I need a breather. Whew!

As I was reading this, all I could think about was what my sister said about what she thought after reading this. She agrees with you; she's really hoping that Bella will choose Jacob over Edward. Me, I may be just silly (and this may not be realistic), but I want Bella and Edward to be together, even if it means that Bella has to become a vampire. Edward's my FAVORITE character! That's just me :)

I like Edward and Bella also, I don't know they just seem to "get" each other.

I'm so excited you're done! We must talk soon! :) Edward is perfect in every way which is why Jacob just can't compete. Warm blooded or not, you can't compete with perfection. :)

To see the "perfect" Edward, go to my friend's blog www.britleesblog.blogspot.com. He's perfect. :)

I love how after reading the book you find out who is an Edward or Jacob fan. I am an Edward fan!

Janece,
I am Julia Andersen's sister Elena and I met you at a baby shower for her a long time ago, maybe 3 yrs ago at least. I had to say that I am finally on the same page as someone who had read this series now, you! Everyone who has read it in my group of family and friends looks at me like I'm crazy when I relate my love for Jacob as a character and how much I think he and Bella would be great together. I also read all three books extremely fast and my house, husband and girls were neglected during those 5 days or so. I must be a kindred spirit to you for the two of us to see eye to eye on this issue. I hope the author loves Jacob as much as I do and will write him as sublime an ending as she does for Edward and Bella.
