Maybe Bella hooking up with Edward again made OP sad or happy? The ending personally bummed me out because I wanted her to hook up with Jacob.

Yeah, you're probably right about this. "Cried myself to sleep" sounds like sad crying to me, so it's probably that OP was say Bella didn't hook up with Jacob.

I don't particularly adore Edward, but Jacob is one of my least favorite characters of all time. (I had too many Nice Guy male "friends" in my teens and early twenties, so to me Jacob had Creepy, Emotionally Manipulative, "Nice Guy" Asshole stamped all over him in font so big it was visible from the end of book one. His distinctive turn in that direction in book three came as no surprise to me whatsoever.) So I really can't imagine feeling sad that Bella doesn't get with him. Which is why OP's secret confused me.

But I should have considered that plenty of people really loved Jacob and were really hoping the series would go his way.

Yeah, a good number of people see him as a nice guy and not a Nice Guy. The movies helped with this in a few ways like where they made Bella and him childhood friends so them hanging out in New Moon made sense whereas it came out of nowhere in the books. Then Bella appeared to she enjoyed herself, smiling and all that, which didn't really happen with Edward. They also soften Jacob's worst moments. He apologizes for forcing himself on Bella in Eclipse and acts like he's honestly sorry. That doesn't happen in the books, either.
