4) Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
Read: 29 January - 16 February
I thought this was a good read, although I didn't have any trouble putting it down when I had to (which is probably why it took me almost 3 weeks to finish). I really liked the descriptions of the surroundings, especially those of the Aurora. They were almost as beautiful as the real thing, which I see all the time in the winter. I also liked how Norway got a little mention (Norroway). :-) Lyra was great, and I don't know who were scarier, Mrs. Coulter or Lord Asriel. I did love Iorek Byrnison and Serafina Pekkala.
5) The Six Sacred Stones by Matthew Reilly
Read: 16 February - 23 February
Second book in the Jack West Jr. series. I got excatly what I expected: dangerous stunts, nerve-wracking cliffhangers, extreme stereotypes and a completely unrealistic plot. Loved it!
6) O Little Town of Maggody by Joan Hess
Read: 8 December - 27 February
I started this before Christmas, but I stopped somewhere in the middle because it didn't really manage to hold my interest. I didn't care for any of the characters, and the plot wasn't very exciting. Okay, nothing more, nothing less.
