I also want to give a shout out to Camilla who was the first person to get them all right.

And, I can't end this post without giving a shout-out to Kelsey, who answered my challenge with a challenge of her own. She wanted to see if I could guess the following characters:

1. She's a unique vampyre.

2. He saves the world more than once in N.Y.C.

3. She and her brother accept a fatal challenge

4. He writes about a mystery that he and a friend try to solve.

5. Love really "bites" for him.

I think I know numbers 2, 3, and 4, but I'm not sure. And I'm totally lost on 1 and 5. So I'm turning it around to you guys to see what you think. Anyone know the answers to Kelsey's trivia? Leave your answers in the comments. Kelsey, if you're out there chime in with the correct answers

    OMG! I just realized that 4. is Ryan McCray from Skeleton Creek. I should’ve seen that one! It my favorite book of all time! But for some reason, the first time I read it, I read “He writes a mystery that his friend try’s to solve.” Ack! My brain is melting from all the math I do in school!

    ok here is one more hint.
    the first is not a twilight character or from the vampire series.
    number five is from twilight.

  5. Michaela

    Well those are pretty tricky, but i think that #1 is Alice,from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and #5 is,i think, Edward Cullen,also from the twilight series. I hope these are right and really help you.
