Why Haven't I Read You? (9)

Every Wednesday I’ll choose a book off one of my (many) shelves that I haven’t read for some reason or another, and include the first few lines from the first page.
Feel free to join in, and leave your comments about the books I feature if you have read them!

I wake up barefoot, standing on cold slate tiles. Looking dizzily down. I suck in a breath of icy air.

Above me are stars. Below me, the bronze statue of Colonel Wallingford makes me realize I’m seeing the quad from the peak of Smythe Hall, my dorm.

I have no memory of climbing the stairs up to the roof. I don’t even know how to get where I am, which is a problem since I’m going to have to get down, ideally in a way that doesn’t involve dying.

  1. This sounds interesting- hopefully you'll get around to reading it soon. I took part in your meme a couple weeks ago, and ended up reading th book I featured as well as the sequel to it. It was the impetus I needed to start reading it. :)

    1. Thanks for participating! If you'd like to include your links to your own posts that would be awesome! Then I can check out your books too! :)


Sorry about the CAPTCHA folks. I'm getting too much spam again!!
