  3. Hannah says:

    Alice is awesome, and it would be cool if Stephenie did a book about her, but I like the fact there is always mystery about her.

  4. You are right, Alice is the greatest and most awesome…I even got a haircut like her’s!

  5. TwiFan says:

  8. rachel says:

    • nikki says:

      nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALICE IS SO MUCH BETTER YOU GO ASHLEY SWEETHEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Sarah says:

    I think she should write books about all the Cullen’s lives. That would be so cool and I know I would like to know more about Jasper, Emmett, Alice, and Carlisle.

    • hehe says:

      and esme πŸ™‚ i want to know the lives of all the cullens and vampires in general O:) i love Twilight!!! <3

  10. Trey says:

    i think she should write a book on foucsing on the tribe and not the cullens

  11. julie says:

    I agree on every ones comments. I would love if she wrote a separate book on every ones lives before the
    Cullen’s became a family and about the lives of the tribe, but i think, well, know that, that is just to much books and years of Stephanie’s life. I appreciate the fact that she is even giving us a inside look on a Newborns point of view.Though I really do think that Stephanie should finish Mid-night Sun being that many, maybe even all of us had already read the link on her page and were just anxious to read the rest. I hope that she will continue writing books on our favorite vampire’s ( the Cullen’s of course) and our favorite wolf pack ( the tribe ) in the mere future. I will be there to buy every single one…. πŸ˜‰

    • shannon says:

      amen, she better wright midnight sun……..(I AM GOING CRAZY!!!!!!!!!) πŸ™‚

  13. rachel says:

    i findd the tribe a bit boring cause i dont really understand it 😐 😐 <3

  14. megan says:

    i the short second life of bree tanner is amazing i just fin it they should make it into a film

  15. andrea says:

    I read the short second life of bree tanner in the parking lot of barnes and noble as soon as I bought it!!! Mall cops finally came up and knocked on my window just as I was wrapping up asking what I was doing and then laughed because I could not wait until I got home! It was good but not quite what I expected…how exciting to read another perspective!

  16. JubJub says:

    i think, since stephanie has a little bit of free time, she should write a backstory for all of the cullens. she has written a very small amount about them in the previous 4 books, but it would be fantastic if she wrote more about them, for the fans who would love to have a bit of everyones story. i sure would!

  17. Jamie says:

    I just finished Bree Tanner…It was so great to see the other side of what was going on in Seattle. I think the most intriguing part of the book was that the Volturi were in cahoots with Victorian and Riley and Bree was able to tell Edward this (through her thoughts of course) before she was killed, and that Edward secretly knows this and carries this with him the entire rest of the series, or at least he never tells Bella….Oh, I so badly want to hear the story from Edward’s point of view!!!!!!!

  18. V says:

    I can’t wait till Kallie and Kassie discuss this in one of thier podcasts!

  19. Alison100%jacob says:

    Hey i think they should write somthin about what happen after th fight wit th coven lol

  20. adele100ward says:

    think stephane should write another book about bella, edward, jacob and reneesme moving away, bella going to dartmouth and seing how bellla continues her journey as a newborn vampire. shes coped well till now cos she has only been around her father. it would be interesting to see how he manages around a whole campus of humans. it woud be also interesting to see how reneesme and jacob relationship develops and how her parents cope with it.

  21. Vanessa_Cullen says:

    If you think bout it making a book bout alice and her expierence would be great…but i would reccomend people to read the short second life of bree first…i personnally loved it and think that it is very sad what happened to her…..and yes they should right another book aboutwhat happened to the cullens…other than thaat great job stephanie!!!

  22. Elise says:

    You guy’s are soo lucky! I haven’t got the chance of reading her new book. It have been a strike here in Norway, and the books haven’t been ported here yet… I want to read the book soo much!
    If Stephenie are gonna write all these books, it wouldn’t be any mystery left, you know..
    I hope that Steph keeps on writing really good, diffrent love storys, and not sticks to this story for too long. Otherwise it will not be fun to read the book over and over again πŸ™‚
    GO STEPH! <3

    Love from Norway

  23. reygie says:

    stephenie should first finish MIDNIGHT SUN…

    • Leslie Mersinger says:

      yeah i agree.. edward is my fav person in all the books.. I’m team edward all the way.. lol

  24. Natasa says:

    Bree’s book is great! but i think that Stephanie should finish Midnight Sun! I can’t wait!!
    Also she should write a book about New Moon from Edward’s perspective because i really want to see what Edward’s thoughts were when he was telling Bella that he was leaving and what he was doing when he was away from her and generally his thoughts…!!!! <3<3<3 πŸ™‚

  25. Nima says:

    THEY SHOULD MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT BREE TANNER!!! I bet that diego and bree would be a good and steammmmy couple πŸ˜‰

  26. krina says:

    I’m still waiting for Twilight from Edwards perspective!

  27. prachi saxena says:

    im very eagerly waiting for midnight sun to be published…it would b d bestest book in the series as we can know the views of all other characters through edward…

  28. Leslie Mersinger says:

    I believe that Stephenie should make a 5th book of Bella and Edwards life after everything has gone away.. πŸ™‚ I Love all the books that were written and the movies… All of the actors nailed their parts and I’m glad to be their fan πŸ™‚ But I feel that all of the fans deserve to have another wonderful book from Stephenies wonderful mind.. I am a closet writer myself and do not have any idea how to publish anything.. but Steph you have such talent that you should share it with the world since you have to money and the means to get your wonderful thoughts and words published.. You are loved… and I’m sure any Twilight fan would agree.. Dont let one jerk ruion your success you are wonderful and everyone whos read your work knows this.. πŸ™‚

    • amie_twilightmaniac says:

      yeah.. i’m 100% agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i don’t want twilight series to finish tooo soooon… πŸ™

  29. Alice|Jasper says:

    well in my part I really want a book about Alice and Jasper they both have me hook there is something special rimantic and dark about them I know the series of books and movies are about bella and edward but in Eclipse I felt head over hills for this two characters hopefully they get a book or short story anything they are great…..

  30. Phan says:

    i was in such a hurry, at 13, to grow up and get on with my life .what i miss most is the innocence being able to bvileee that everything would, somehow, be all right and that happy endings were truly possible
