  2. Hey everyone! Join in the fun. Even I don't know ALL the matches--because I've only read about the half the books. Bad because I've only read half the books. Good because I have so many wonderful books waiting to be read!

    Enjoy the fun everyone!

    1. There are no wrong guesses.

      (well, I guess you're technically wrong, but it won't keep you from being eligible...LOL)

  7. I won't even attempt this. I recognized two of the 'first lines' right away, but have no clue for the rest.

  8. Well, this looks like fun! These are some scorching good first lines.

    Now I'm going to have to dash over to Amazon to see which of you wrote what lines.

    Yep, you heard me right. I'm going to cheat. :-)

    1. And I seriously love it.
      I would have to charge my Kindle to see a lot of them...

  12. I was going to start looking these up but it looks like Tammy has them all. LOL I did another contest like this, but when you submitted your answers they didn't post for everyone to see. I think the author changed her blog setting so she'd get them.
