I vote for #10. :)
I'm voting for my top three - 10, 4 and 3, and in that order. Looking forward to the holidays!
These are all great! #10 for me. :-)
#9. Although #1 and #2 would be fun, too!
Tough choices! I vote for #5!
#4 is my favorite.
#1, 5, 9 are all very intriguing.
And #7 & 10 hold my curiosity.
All great first sentences though. :)
I pick #1. Although # 8 sounds like it would be hilarious.
My absolute favorite is #6. But I'm an emotion kind of girl and this one seems like it would prove to be a heart-jerker, and I'm a sucker for those.
#1 just sounds fun. ;)
And #9...I can see an entire book around that one. LOL :)
Either #9 or #1.
Tough choices. They're all good, but I think #7 holds a lot of possibilities. Could definitely go in any direction from there.
I love #4. Just my crass sense of humor, I guess!
Number 10, because it paints a great mental picture of how some past holidays went for me.
#1 sounds totally fun
my top choices in order: #1, #7, #10, #8
All are interesting but something as mundane as #2 hits my radar...
Wow, thanks for all the participation. Some interesting results. The top vote getters so far are #10 with 4 1st place votes and 1 3rd place vote and #1 with 2 1st place votes and 4 2nd place votes. Keep the votes coming!
Oh, #7 has so many possibilities from humorous to kinky.
They're all pretty good, but I like #3. >:) Sounds like it could be a lot of fun to find out why she thought that way!
I can't decide! I like them all!
I liked #2) He wore the ugliest Christmas sweater she'd ever seen.
Really, really tough. I think I'll go with 9 but I might change my mind if I reread them!
Toss up between #9 and #3...and wishing I were her!!! :)
All good choices. I'm going to go with 10, 9, 7, in that order. Have fun!
They are all great lines. I'm voting for #4.
6 & 7. Love the angst-preview of 6 and the oooh-wait-for-it of 7.
A lot of good ones, but I'd have to say #10. #6 also had me curious.
Gotta be #1 ! Where do you go from there!
