A guy reads Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (2009-2011)

Reading Twilight: Chapter 10 (Interrogations)

The song for this chapter is Song In My Head by Sherwood


As I started on this chapter, I couldn’t help but think back on all the memorable snacks I have enjoyed so far while reading, usually munching with one hand and turning the pages with the other to avoid greasy stains on its pages. So far, I have enjoyed popcorn for two of the chapters, some Tex-Mex chips-and-salsa for another, leftover macaroni a few weeks ago, and today: half of a pepperoni pizza.

My reasoning for doing two things at once is that I usually discover upon picking up the book that I haven’t eaten in six or so hours and I had better do two things at once before I blasphemously nibble on the pages. Also, being starving, exhausted and up past midnight makes me feel more like the way true Twilighters end up after picking up the book: not even wanting to stop reading for such frivolous necessities required to keep oneself in the land of the living. So without further ado, my pizza-stained fingers flip through Chapter the Tenth!

Speaking of eating, I find it interesting the things I discovered in this chapter about Edward’s own hunting habits. I recently discovered the meaning of the term ‘vegetarian’ as used in Twilight, and to see the way that Edward gets around that to keep himself alive is certainly one I hadn’t expected. But of course, I’m wondering exactly what happens to him in the sunlight, and what would happen if he does drink human blood? I am catching something behind him being able to smell Bella from so far away and follow her scent, and even though I don’t think it has been said yet, I am thinking that he is actually smelling the scent of her blood. Is they why he calls himself dangerous? I am thinking that it is becoming very hard for him to resist.

Being a writer, I can’t help picking up on funny phrases and just laughing uproariously trying to imagine what they could mean. Any writer will know what part of this sentence caught me:

I couldn’t argue, with the eyes or the motivation, and it was a moot point anyway.

What? Moot Point? I apologize to all the non-writers out there, but when I see that phrase, a great many things come to mind, including but not limited to:

Davy Crockett, in his favorite Moot Point pose:

After our coach called the referee an asparagus, the opposing team was given one Moot Point:

One Moot Point

Sorry, I just can’t help what goes through my crazy brain. If you want to know the actual definition of the term, I discovered it over here.

Anyhow, this chapter was full of great stuff and I am getting the feeling that it is lining up for something big. I also have a feeling that it will be in The Famous Chapter 13, which causes nearly everyone to swoon just by it’s very mention. This also leads me to a question out of curiosity: what chapter is the best in Twilight? I want to see which one I should be looking forward to with greatest anticipation 😀 .

Next chapter coming soon!

  1. I don’t really have a fav chapter in Twilight, I like the whole part where she hasn’t joined in yet. (No one seems to agree with me in that part. But the book is so much funnier when she’s still wondering)
    I do have a favourite chapter in Eclipse, 22. I’m really looking forward to what you’ll write about it. Can’t you jump over the rest?-)

  2. lol.
    you wouldn’t believe the stains on my books.

    multiple food stains on Twlight.

    grass stains on New Moon [don’t ask.]

    and ripped pages caused by bottled up excitement bursting suddenly in Eclipse.

    and yes, chapter 13 probably is the best chapter in Twilight. but the best chapter out of all of the series has to be in Eclipse. but since my lovely sister has stolen my copy of Eclipse, i can’t tell you exactly which chapter it is. but it’s scandalous. x]

  3. I think I may be one of the only Twilighters who doesn’t consider Chapter 13 to be the best.
    Oh, it’s incredible alright, but there are a few I’d put before it.
    Chapters 15 and 16 for example.
    And Chapter 23 is so powerfully written.
    Wait until you get to that one!

  4. Chapter 13 is THE BEST CHAPTER in the book. No doubt. Thunder through Chapter 12 to get to it. xp Lol, don’t do that, I was just kidding. Treasure every word, it’s always the best the first time reading, but it’s always breathtakingly awesome anyway.

  5. I think that chapter 23 is the best, even though I do think chapter 13 is good as well. But I’m not going to tell you why it is the best because that would just ruin the entire book for you.

  6. Omg! U used the word blasphemy in this blog! : O
    forshadow much?
    (after u read New Moon ull get this comment)
    : D

  7. i would have to say chapter 13 is the best, it’s kinda funny how some people say that the number 13 is unlucky when this chapter is the dream Stephenie Meyer had that started the whole Twilight Saga

  8. I just wanted you to know how I learned the definition of Moot.

    I watched Friends. In one episode, Joey calls it a Moo point. Because, apparently, a cows opinion doesn’t matter. And they had to correct him saying the word is Moot. =) That was what I thought of when I see that phrase >.<

  9. Chapter 15: The Cullens :]

    The funny thing is I didn;t even have to get up and get my book to figure this out.

  10. So, I’ve been using the phrase “moot point” incorrectly until now. *shakes her head sadly* I’ll have to put it on a list of things-never-to-say-again-because-the-wrong-definition-will-always-be-right-in-my-mind-and-so-I’ll-probably-never-use-it-correctly-and-will-only-end-up-sounding-stupid. It’ll be on the list right under the word, “travesty”. Dang it. 🙁

  11. Hi… Edward Cullen you are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute and you seem soooooooooo nice. I think form me that you and bella goes good together. I love the boom and this is my favorite. I wish I could just read it faster to get done!!! So many pages. I am sooooooo goind to see the movie the first day it comes out with all 15 to 20 of my friends. It is going to be all about you and you rock……….!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. OK…so I’m late coming to the “twilightguy” party, but I was late coming to the whole twilight sage! I actually saw the movie before I even knew what it was all about, but that is how I like to do things, but that is not the reason I must comment here. I can’t even read all the comments on this section since I now have to run out and buy another twilight book. I have the whole set, but four different friends are reading them, so I don’t have a copy at home to reread and see what chapter is what. I can guess, but what is the fun in that??? Besides, after totally stalking your whole website for the past few days, I have convinced my husband how incredibly sexy it would be for him to read the books too. And yes, the “sexy” bit was what got him to agree. We celebrated 22 years of martial bliss last night (yes, New Year’s Eve) and after weeks (while reading the series) of my incredibly amorous behavior he will soon understand what these books unleashed.

  13. I hope you realize that us starving twilighters reading at 3 in the morning are not actaully starving by the time we get to eclipse. no, by then we have mastered the skill of preparing complex culinary dishes, such as pastaronior instant soup, without looking up from the page.
    And the answer to your question about the favorite chapters is chapter… wait sally has my book. crap. well, i like the one where Eddie-boy has to… erm, convince Bella to go running and she faints. My all-time fav.

  14. Dude i totally laughed at moot point too. its rarely used in text or the spoken language! Also just a great word MOOT. My favorite chapter is probably Chapter 13-15, because each chapter has it highlights but to me the highlights are intertwinable. And yeah i thought i got obsessive when i was reading before- twilight changed that ina heart beat i read all four books in 4 days. And that was after swearing to stear clear of them all together, but the movie intrigued me and i had to know what was left out because it was too apparent.

  15. I really enjoy your take on the “moot point.” Like you, that also caught my attention. However, my mind went to FRIENDS and Joey's “moo point.” It's like a cows opinion. It doesn't matter. It's moo. If you don't know the episode I'm talking about, you can watch it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ifdqEmlx-I

  16. (very late in the game)

    My favourite chapter(s) in Twilight has to be Chapter 8, Port Angelas. That is when she knows he is a vampire. My other favourite has to be when he picks her up for school and everyone stares at them in shock. (Forgot what chapter that was).

    My least favourite is when you find out he sparkles like a diamond. I went 'what teh fuk' on that one, and I still do. Although I understand why it is in there, I still go 'Bleh”

  18. Personally I like chapter 17 -the game ^.^ but I also LOVED chapter 5 – blood type


  19. Well, I think all the chapters are – usually – really exciting, but some are better than others! I find it difficult to choose . . . !

  20. yeah I always think of the “Entmoots” in Lord of the Rings when I hear the word “moot”
