Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 14

"They were all here, all together but that was not what  froze me where I stood and had my jaw dropping to the floor.
It was Edward.  It was the expression on his face.
I'd seen him angry, and I'd seen him arrogant, and once I'd seen him in pain.  But this - this was beyond agony." ~ Jacob, chpt 9

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 14

"Nope, the pack wasn't attacking anyone today.
But I was." ~ Jacob chpt 8

"The pack is not attacking the Cullen's without provocation. The spirit of the treaty remains. They are not a danger to our people, nor are they a danger to the people of Forks.  Bella Swan made an informed choice, and we are not going to punish our former allies for her choice." ~ Sam, chpt 8

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 13

 "Sometimes I thought it might be fun to enter  a race - you know, like the Olympic trials or something.  It would be cool to watch the expressions on those star athletes' faces when I blew by them.  Only I was pretty sure the testing they did to make sure you weren't on steroids would probably turn up some really freaky crap in my blood." ~ Jacob, chpt 8

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 13

"Life sucks, and then you die.
Yeah, I should be so lucky." ~Jacob, preface chpt 8 

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 13

"I'm a little worried about Edward... Can vampires go into shock?"
"Has he been harmed?" Carlisle's voice was suddenly urgent.
"No, no" I assured him.  "Just ...taken by surprise."
"I don't understand, Bella."
"I think...well, I think that...maybe... I might be..."  I took a deep breath.  "Pregnant."
As if to back me up, there was another tiny nudge in my abdomen.
~Bella and Carlisle, chpt 7

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 12

"I'll have to buy Esme a new bed frame," he confessed, glancing over his shoulder.  I followed his gaze and was shocked to see that large chunks of wood had apparently been gouged from the left side of the headboard.
"Hmmm."  I frowned.  "You'd think I would have heard that."
"You seem to be extraordinarily unobservant when your attention is otherwise involved." ~ Edward and Bella, chpt 6

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 12

"Do you want me to sing to you?  I'll sing all night if it will keep the bad dreams away." ~ Edward, chpt 6

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 12

"My entertainment became the number one priority on Isle Esme.  We snorkeled (well, I snorkeled while he flaunted his ability to go without oxygen indefinitely).  We explored the small jungle that ringed the rocky little peak.  We visited the parrots that lived in the canopy on the north end of the island.  We watched the sunset from the rocky western cove.  We swam with the porpoises that played in the warm, shallow waters there." ~ Bella, chpt 6

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 11

"What had happened to me?  I couldn't make sense of the fluffy white snow that clung to my skin.  I shook my head, and a cascade of white drifted out of my hair,
I pinched one soft white bit between my fingers.  It was a piece of down.
"Why am I covered in feathers?"  I asked, confused.
He exhaled impatiently "I bit a pillow. Or two." ~Bella and Edward, chpt 5

And because I know you are all just like me - this is the post we all want to see the most - so I thought I'd include a few of my favorite fan made manips and screencaps. Enjoy!!  Tell me which are your favorites!
PS I have no clue who made these, as I copied them off the internet, but they are geniuses!!

Well - this one is actually from the movie - YEEHAWWWWW!!! :)

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 11

"His fingers softly trailed down the contours of my spine, and I knew that he knew that I was awake.  I kept my eyes shut and tightened my arms around his neck, holding myself closer to him

He didn't speak; his fingers moved up and down my back, barely touching it as he lightly traced patterns on my skin." ~ Bella, chpt 5

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 11

"Beautiful," I said, looking up at the moon too.
"It's all right," he answered, unimpressed.  He turned slowly to face me; little waves rolled away from his movement and broke against my skin.
"But I wouldn't use the word beautiful," he continued.  "Not with you standing here in comparison." ~Bella and Edward, chpt 5

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 10

"I was wondering," Edward said slowly, "if...first...maybe you'd like to take a swim with me?" He took a deep breath, and his voice was more at ease  when he spoke again. "The water will be very warm.  This is the kind of beach you approve of."
"Sounds nice." My voice broke.
"I'm sure you'd like a human moment or two.... it was a very long journey."
"Don't take too long, Mrs Cullen." ~ Edward and Bella, chpt 5

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 10

" Instead of taking my hand he pulled me right up into his arms.  
"Aren't you supposed to wait for the threshold?" I asked, breathless, as he sprung lightly from the boat.
He grinned.  "I'm nothing if not thorough."

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 10

"And then my eyes refocused and the pieces all made sense: a small island rose out of the water ahead of us, waving with palm fronds, a beach glowing pale in the light of the moon.
"Where are we?" I murmured while he shifted course, heading around to the north end of the island.
He heard me, despite the noise of the engine, and smiled a wide smile that gleamed in the moonlight.
"This is Isle Esme."

Breaking Dawn Quotes: Day 9

"He lifted his face from mine and glared at his favorite sister.  "You're awfully small to be so hugely irritating." ~ Edward, to Alice, chpt 4

"Thank you.  Edward, I'm not afraid."
"I am." he whispered.
"Don't be."  I took a deep breath and smiled.  "By the way, I love you."
He smiled just a little in return.  "That's why we're here." ~ Bella and Edward, chpt 4

Breaking Dawn Quotes day 8

"I'm going to try to remember you like this.  Pretend that..."
"That what?  That I died?"
"No," he finally answered.  "But I'll see you this way in my head.  Pink cheeks.  Heartbeat.  Two left feet.  All of that."
I deliberately stomped on his foot as hard as I could.
He smiled.  "That's my girl." ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 4

"To make it perfect."
"That's a tall order."

He groaned at my bad joke and then sighed.  "I'm just here to be your friend.  Your best friend.  One last time." ~ Jacob and Bella, chpt 4

Breaking Dawn Quotes day 6

"All I really saw was Edward's face; it filled my vision and overwhelmed my mind.  His eyes were a buttery, burning gold; his perfect face was almost severe with the depth of his emotion.  And then, as he met my awed gaze, he broke into a breathtaking smile of exultation." ~Bella, chpt 3

Day 5 - Breaking Dawn Quotes

"There was a squeal against the window - someone deliberately scraping their steel nails across the glass to make a horrible, cover-your-ears, goose-bumps-down-your-spine noise. I shuddered.
   "If you  don't send Edward out," Emmett-still invisible in the night-hissed menacingly, "we're coming in after him!"

"I don't know.  It's too hard to concentrate when you're with me like this.  I-I can't think straight.  I won't be able to control myself.  You'll get hurt." ~ Edward, chpt 2

"This was pretty close to my happy place.  Charlie slept obliviously in his room, which was almost as good as being alone.  We were curled up on my small bed, intertwined as much as it was possible, considering the thick afghan I was swathed in like a cocoon.  I hated the necessity of the blanket, but it sort of ruined the romance when my teeth started chattering." ~ Bella, chpt 2

Day 4 - Breaking Dawn Quotes

"Sometimes it was so easy to forget I was kissing a vampire." ~Bella, chpt 2

"For several years my biggest personality trait was going to be thirsty.  It would take some time before I could be me again."

"In my happy place, the whole wedding mess was over and done.  Behind me.  Already repressed and forgotten.  We were alone, just Edward and me.  The setting was fuzzy and constantly in flux - it morphed from misty forest to cloud covered city to arctic night - because Edward was keeping the location of our honeymoon a secret to surprise me." ~Bella, chpt 1

"My best friend.  My Jacob." ~ Bella chpt 1

"The best parts about being a Cullen were not expensive cars and impressive credit cards." ~ Bella, chpt 1

Breaking Dawn Quotes - Day 2

"I was so fragiley human, so accident prone, so much a victim of my own dangerous bad luck, apparently I needed a tank-resistant car to keep my safe. Hilarious. I was sure he and his brothers had enjoyed the joke quite a bit behind my back." ~ Bella, chpt 1

"Like always, as soon as I started thinking about Edward I was caught up in a dizzy spin of fantasies." ~ Bella, Chpt 1

"It wasn't bright out - a typical drizzly day in Forks, Washington - but I still felt like a spotlight was trained on me, drawing attention to the delicate ring on my left hand.  At times like this, sensing eyes on my back, it felt as if the ring were pulsing like a neon sign: Look at me, look at me." ~Bella, chpt 1

Because I want to re-live the book before movie premiere(and because I want to recruit more people into 'The Fandom'), I will be re-reading part 1 of Breaking Dawn and posting whatever quotes tickle my fancy.  Look for a new quote 3 times a day - and hopefully, if I time things correctly,  we will all be refreshed and ready to go for the big day On November 18th ( who am I kidding - I've been ready for it since day 1!)  So, without further ado..... let's get this rolling, shall we? ;)  Let's start with the very first line of the preface....

"I'd had more than my fair share of near-death experiences; it wasn't something you ever really got used to." ~ Bella, preface

"No one is staring at you, I promised myself. No one is staring at you. No one is staring at you.
 But, because I couldn't lie convincingly even to myself, I had to check." ~ Bella chpt 1

"I briefly contemplated my issues with words like fiance, wedding, husband, etc."  ...-... "I just couldn't reconcile a staid, respectable, dull concept like husband with my concept of Edward. It was like casting an archangel as an accountant" ~ Bella, chpt 1

Look for second quote of the day in 6 hours( give or take.....)  I look forward to sharing my obsession, errrrr - JOURNEY with all of you!!!

It's Out!

I left work early today because I wasn't feeling too good, and to cheer myself up I stopped in at my local Chapters bookstore and picked up THIS!

 I know curling up in bed with my new fireplace on and a chai from Starbucks is the best medicine for feeling better!
