In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 20 -- Volterra · 1:16pm Apr 9th, 2018

Bella and Alice arrive in Volterra to find the streets packed with people for St. Marcus’s Day. After driving as close to Edward as possible (which isn’t that close), Alice tells Bella to just get out of the car and run to him. Bella runs for three pages straight to get to Edward, reaching him right before he steps into the sun.

It was really him, no hallucination this time. And I realized that my delusions were more flawed than I’d realized; they’d never done him justice.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 23 -- The Truth · 3:13pm Apr 15th, 2018

When Bella wakes up early in the morning, she sees Edward in her room and thinks that either she’s dreaming or she’s dead after drowning. No, I don’t get it, either. After too long, she finally concludes that, yes, the events of the past few days actually happened. Edward comments that he’s technically not supposed to be there, as Charlie banned him from the house.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 11 -- Cult · 1:36pm Mar 24th, 2018

After a week, Bella’s still alive; Victoria hasn’t gotten to her yet. Still, she’s nervous and jumpy. To make matters worse, she hasn’t heard from Jacob, through the phone or otherwise. It’s definitely not for a lack of trying on her part, since she’s tried to reach him every day. Occasionally dipping into unhealthy territory:

On Wednesday I called every half hour until after eleven at night, desperate to hear the warmth of Jacob’s voice.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 22 -- Flight · 2:50pm Apr 13th, 2018

As Bella, Edward, and Alice leave behind the vampire blood orgy (that’d be a great name for a death metal band), Bella slowly freaks out at what’s going on in the room she just departed. One of the Volturi’s human servants asks if they need anything, but Edward sends her away. According to Edward, she’s aware of what’s going on and is fully aware she could end up as a vampire’s dinner, but goes through with it in the hopes that the Volturi will turn her.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 1 -- Party · 3:30pm Mar 3rd, 2018

Before we begin New Moon, I’m happy to announce a new staple to this series, the Clinginess Meter! Whenever Bella — just Bella — says or does something that’s horrifically obsessive about Edward, rather than comment on it, I’ll simply put the quote down and add 1 to the Clinginess Meter. And it needs to be obsessive; simply “I love you” doesn’t count, but “I could never live without you” does.

That settled, on we go!

Clinginess Meter: 0

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 2 -- Stitches · 4:37pm Mar 5th, 2018

In spite of having a human bleeding in front of him, Carlisle immediately takes control of the situation, telling Emmett and Rosalie to get Jasper out of the room. He’s perfected his self-control as a surgeon, after all. Carlisle and Edward take Bella to the kitchen to get her fixed up. Slowly, all the other vampires file away to avoid temptation, leaving Carlisle and Bella alone while he picks out the glass and stitches her up. And the next scene, aside from Carlisle putting antiseptic on the

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 16 -- Paris · 3:11pm Apr 2nd, 2018

Bella wakes up on the beach, Jacob thumping her in the back to get the water out of her lungs. She gradually comes to her senses and puts together that Jacob rescued her. The other werewolves are nearby, asking if she’s okay. She says she’ll live, but Jacob still decides to take her to a hospital. He’d come back because Victoria had slipped past the werewolves and into the ocean. Jacob was scared because he thought she might swim to the beach, where Bella spends a lot of her time, so he raced

Hearing something scratching at her window, Bella freaks out, thinking it’s Victoria. No, it’s actually Jacob, climbing a tree to try to get into her room. Bella opens her window to let Jacob in, which brings up lots of bad emotions.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 21 -- Verdict · 3:58pm Apr 11th, 2018

So, what’s the reason for the cliffhanger last chapter? What’s beyond that door that’s so surprising?

A hallway. Lame.

Three more pages of walking through halls, and then the group emerges into a castle turret, populated by both humans and vampires. They’re greeted by Aro, who…

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 3 -- The End · 4:10pm Mar 7th, 2018

Really?! (looks at table of contents) …Nope. Dammit.

Anyway, during Bella’s day at school, Edward’s distant, and the rest of the Cullens and Hales who still go to school aren’t there. Naturally, this is terrible for Bella, and her job after school at a sporting goods store drags on and on and on. She thinks it’s nothing, even though your boyfriend’s family almost eating you on instinct shouldn’t be nothing.

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 7 -- Repetition · 3:15pm Mar 16th, 2018

Bella drives out to the Cullens’ house, trying to get a glimpse of it. Actually, she’s wanting to hear Edward’s voice again, hoping deja vu will trigger it, but she doesn’t want to admit it. Think that’s unhealthy? So does Bella:

I didn’t want to admit the strongest motivation. Because it was mentally unsound.

She admits it’s mentally unsound and does it anyway. CM + 1

In Which I Suffer Through New Moon: Chapter 4 -- Waking Up · 4:17pm Mar 9th, 2018

If any chapter in the series so far has come close to breaking me, it’s this one. If I wasn’t reading the series to find out what it did wrong, if I was only reading it out of a trainwreck mentality, I would’ve quit here.

In Which I Read Twilight: Chapter 2 -- Open Book · 5:54pm Dec 19th, 2017

Even though her first encounter with him was almost completely negative (except for the fact that he’s so frigging hot like whoa), Bella’s next day at school is terrible because Edward isn’t there. She keeps expecting him to show up, as if he’s skipping school to wind her up. She suspects his absence is her fault, which I can kinda see, but is also ridiculous and egotistical (something she herself points out, but that doesn’t make it not ridiculous and egotistical).

In Which I Read Twilight: Chapter 3 -- Phenomenon · 3:52pm Dec 23rd, 2017

It’d rained in the previous chapter, but Bella wakes up to find the weather cold enough freeze the rain solid, coating everything in a layer of ice and turning the roads into an ice rink. Naturally, school’s cancelled; there’s no way the school’s going to let students drive out in those conditions.

No, wait. School’s not cancelled. Students have to drive out in those conditions.

In Which I Read Twilight: Chapter 4 -- Invitations · 4:42pm Dec 27th, 2017

Holy crap was this chapter uneventful.

Bella’s dream of Edward can be summed up like this: “Edward’s so frigging hot like whoa, but I can’t get to him.” (By the way, I’m not exaggerating with working that phrase into every post thus far. Nearly every mention of Edward talks about how beautiful he is.)

After a little more waiting, Alice gets another convenient vision of James in another room. When she sketches out the room, Bella recognizes it as her mother’s family room; James is going after Renee to get to Bella. Fortunately, the rest of the Cullens will be arriving in Phoenix soon. (Side note: there’s two or three more times when Bella says something stupid about Edward’s absence, like, “Just a few more hours to keep breathing till he was here.”, but I’m giving up commenting on them.

In Which I Beg for Sweet Release From Breaking Dawn: Chapter 38 -- Power · 12:35pm Jul 29th, 2018

As the Volturi talk, Bella keeps her shield up. Jane and Alec attempt to incapacitate the Cullens and their allies, to keep them from running away, but it’s to no avail against Bella’s shield. When the Volturi break off, Aro says that, regardless of the decision, it doesn’t need to come to violence and it would be a shame for anyone to die. This prompts exclamations of disbelief from the Cullens’ side. I’d just like to remind you all one more time that the only evidence of the Volturi wanting

Bella finally decides to look into J. Jenks. She drives Jacob and Nessie over to Charlie’s, telling Edward that she wants to give Charlie a chance to visit Nessie so she can use the away time to head to Seattle. Why she can’t just say, “I need to go to Seattle. Alice left a message that she only wanted me to see. I want to tell you but I don’t think I should. Sorry.”, I don’t know. Jacob’s still not happy with the vampires, particularly the Romanians. Nessie, however, is fascinated with them,
