    Joyous day! Rapturous night!

    Too bad I vowed not to read it. But thanks for all you’ve done, Alphie, to spolier-proof the site and the message boards. I have sworn to save myself for the entire novel so you’re a lifesaver!

    Off I go to think about not reading the first chapter of New Moon…

    Cheerio! Alda

  3. omg i just finished it it is soo good and that was a great part to leave off an make us wanting more. i finished it while my friends were only on page 12 and the chapter took longer to load for me so now they are going to get revenge since i can read so fast

  4. I just finished! WOWWEEE!

  5. rhiaonna says

    O.O i just finished the first chapter, and am now annoying all my friends by calling them at 12:30 in the morning to let them know my joy!!!!!!!!! it was so good, but the ending was so sudden, i think i’m going to die before the book comes out.

  6. Cassandra says

  11. christina says

    I absolutely can’t wait untill the book comes out – which I thought I heard was coming out the end of August … could someone just update me on that???

    I’m jelous that ppl have already red the book – it bugs me to know the story is really good but out of my reach!!

    OMG….I haven’t even read it, and I’m crying. I read the tiltle page, and I started CRYING!… Sleep deprivation, I totally blame it on being tired. Gah! I’m so excited. I’m gonna go read now…

  13. Hellish Red Devil says

    Total and complete cliffy. Stephenie must be evil. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Can’t wait for the book to arrive!!! Just the end of Chapter 0ne and I’m already feeling the adrenaline rush.. ๐Ÿ˜›

  15. iheartbooks says

    Oh my gosh that was so mean to end it like that lol. Not even fair. I think I’m going to have a heart attack before it comes out lol. Now I’m off to read Twilight until New Moon comes out. *Sigh*

  16. more! I need more! that was so awesome! I gotta go read it again.

  17. *Gasps*



    why WHY?!

  18. this is soooo evil!!! oh i can’t WAIT!!!!!

  19. YAY!!!!!

    Finally we know whats happening before and in between the bits of the teaser!!! Wierd image, Esme ravenous for Bella’s blood. I guess the “six ravenous vampires” doesn’t count Carlisle.
    Grrr, though!! It leaves that very very frustrating cliff hanger!!!
    Thanks so much for posting it on the lexicon, otherwise I never would have found it!!!

  20. *Weeping uncontrollably*
    My computer at home is broken so i went to the library when i heard it was out but there adobe reader doesn’t work. Now i’m so angry that i’m crying. stupid ‘puter.
    *Continues weeping angrily*

  21. Oh my goodness!!! Poor poor poor Jasper, he doesn’t mean anything! I feel so bad for him, he tries so hard…anyways that was a very very very very very (endless very’s) good first chapter, it made me want to read more I almost pressed next page because I was so anticipating what would happen. I am soooo curious, and yes if anyone knows the exact date of when New Moon comes out I’d like to know, thank you!

  22. christina says

    ahhhhh – i’ve red it like a million times and i still can’t get over how the first chapter finishes … I WANT MORE!!

    *i found out that u can start looking 4 new moon during the last week of august but that there is still no official release date … ugh!!!!!!!

    and i feel 4 jasper 2 … he does try rele hard … but i rele wish that bella would become a vampire – her and edward r so loving and caring 4 each other … i wanna c them together forever!!

  23. Bellatrix says

    OMG That was awesome. Now we have to wait!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! August is soooooooo far away. I can’t wait at all!!! Poor jasper, hmmmmm…… I wonder, does six ravenous vampires mean Edward too?? Oh, say it ain’t so!

  24. Awww, the chapter was really good. I need to know what happens to Bella next!! I can’t wait till New Moon comes out! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. this first chapter of the new book is just great! I can bearly contain myself from going crazy to know what is about to happen next!!!! October seems so fay way!!!!

  26. Such a tease!!! (but an awesome one) ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Sherbert says

    Oh my word… The first chapter was absolutely marvelous.

    I actually read it a few days ago, but… I’m only just now getting around to commenting.

    Emmett was priceless. I still can’t help but think of him as a big, cuddly teddy bear… only with large hidden claws. ^.~ And Alice was such a dear, and was so adorable. I love how she acts towards Bella, like a best friend. (I’d say sister, but… I know sometimes sisters don’t get along. At all. No offense, of course, to those who have any siblings.) Poor Jasper, though… After I read the chapter, I wanted to be able to cuddle him. That’s the only bad thing about fictional characters… >.>

    Anyways, I totally appreciated that first chapter. I’m left anticipating the return of Stephenie (though I truly want her to enjoy her trip!) and the next chapter update.

  28. SO COOL!

  29. anyone know how many days till it’s avaible off (as in not off a pre-order?)
