Thanks for tagging me, Emily!! (Her blog is http://thatonegirlemily.blogspot.com/, in case you all are wondering. You can go check it out if you want. I'll wait. Okay, are you back yet? Good.)
The Rules: Open the closest book to you-not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment. Turn to page 56 and write out the fifth sentence as well as the next two to five sentences. Pass this on to five blogging friends.

They were playing a game not unlike tennis with heavy-strung racquets and jeweled skulls for balls. The skulls were so satisfying in the way they thunked when hit cleanly, in the way they curved in great looping parabolas across the marble court. The skulls had never sat on human necks; they had been obtained, at great loss of life and significant expense, from a demon race in the highlands, and, afterward jeweled (emeralds and sweet rubies set in a lacy silver filigree in the eye sockets and about the jawbone) in Carthus's own workshops.
That was fun. I love Neil Gaiman's books, he's one of my all time favourite authors. I think I'll review this later.
Okay, so if you want to do this, leave a comment telling me and I'll tag you.
