Question of the Day

How long did it take you to fall for Jacob?

17 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I loved him the minute bella stepped out of her truck and his face lit up in a smile.

Kari said...

For me, it took reading NM three times before I could see what Bella saw in him. I didn't love him until BD though. His sarcasm won me over.

Maggie said...

I'd have to say the third time through the series when I got to NM. I finally saw what everyone else was seeing in him - although he wasn't Edward, he was there for Bella and loved her even though she couldn't feel at all. And in BD his sarcasm was awesome for me too, especially the chapter titles.

I really liked him my first time reading the books, but the second time around my love for him hit me in Eclipse.

I liked him from Twilight through NM, then didn't like him again until Breaking Dawn.

Ya know...I've never "FALLEN" for him! I liked him in Twilight but then in NM and EC I really didn't like him at all! I finally liked him again in BD! He had more of a purpose besides just trying to split Edward and Bella up and I liked the humor he added! Still I haven't FALLEN for him like I did with Edward!

Jes said...

I haven't fallen for him either- but, I do enjoy him now- but it wasn't until BD

Jill said...

I loved him from New Moon. -I just can't help but fall for the underdog.

mo said...

i first fell in love with him when his head popped out of the window in NM when bella came to see him for the first time. though i hated him all through EC because all he wanted was bella, no matter who he hurt to get her, he won me over in breaking dawn with his biting sarcasm, since i am a VERY sarcastic person, and i can really appreciat that.

I liked him throughout NM, but I didn't really fall for him, I was always just waiting for Edward to return. I hated him in Ec, because he was such a jerk. However I as of about 3 chapters into part 2 of BD I love Jacob, he's become one of my favorite characters. Mostly for his chapter titles.

See...I think if I would have read all the books in a row the first time around, I may have had a hard time LOVING Jacob.

As it was, though, I read Twilight, waited a year for NM, read that, waited a year for E, etc. The time lapse in between gave me time to forget (as much as I loved the books, I wasn't truly obsessed until after Eclipse, and that's when SVC came along to feed my insanity) how in love I was with Edward. I didn't re-read Twilight before reading NM for the first time, so I was a bit smitten with Jacob off the bat. I missed Edward, and he was still my favorite, but I always tend to root for the underdog...

I essentially wanted to clone Bella so she could be with both. But she had to choose, so I am very happy she chose Edward (again, he's my fave and nothing compares to him). But I love Jake. If I were to pinpoint a moment, I think it would be either when he smacks Quil and Embry upside the head that first time Bella is in his garage (they were making some crude joke about him giving her "riding lessons"...heehee) or when she hugs him after he talks about how sad he is that Embry joined Sam's cult.

Hot bod, great smile, husky voice, canine devotion...what's not to love?

Ryah said...

Why does everyone hate him in Eclipse?

I don't see it.

alison said...

ryah, I already explained it to you-- they are douches to the n-th degree.


Jacob was awesome in eclipse. hands down better than that e-whore.

Erin said...

LOL, Alison.

Ryah...I think some people see him as pushy, some people see him as persistent...

Ummm... I don't know when, but defenatly in BD. He is the only reason I finished reading the book! His Ch. title's were HILARIOSE!!!!

Corinne said...

Not long. I always liked him (including in Eclipse, Ryah). I loved the drama and angst he brought. I was totally sorry for him in BD though and am horrified that he wasn't better than imprinting.

Pinkchan said...

I dont love Jacob, Never have but I dont hate him either, I rather like him he is really funny in BD but that and love are two diferent things to me
