Hello, all! So sorry that I haven't blogged in forever and a day. Things got a little crazy around here, come Christmas time. I did finish "New World Order" and absolutely loved the second half. The first half was excellent, but the second part of the book really took flight and I enjoyed it a great deal. A curious book, as I mentioned previously, that had no strong "Young Adult" characters in the first half. But in the end . . . ah, a great story! I also read the wonderful "Tomorrow When the War Began", and of course, my Christmas reads. I shall post this bit, and then put my recommended Christmas reads in a separate thingy.
