#12hppofxmas Day 3

I've fallen behind already! I guess my Christmas season has been a bit busier this year than last year, because I already have some catching up to do. I would've made it to 100 pages yesterday if I hadn't gone to see In the Heart of the Sea, which was strangely linked to The Terror, the book that I read the last thirty pages of this morning.

The Terror was quite good at the beginning, dragged a little bit in the middle (but not too badly), and then came to an unexpected and somewhat abrupt ending, although if I think about it some more, the ending section was about a hundred pages of the book, so that's not really "abrupt" and could probably be more accurately described as "unsatisfying."

The other pages I read today were from Jeff VanderMeer's Wonderbook, which I started reading along with doing NaNoWriMo in November and am hopelessly limping toward finishing by the end of the year. I have four days to read 17 pages, though, so I'm pretty sure I can manage that.

I wasn't sure what I was going to read next from the stack in my last post, and was leaning toward a couple of the shorter comics, but I've actually had the decision made for me by the library, which isn't letting me renew Christina Henry's Alice, thus necessitating that I pick that one up next and read it as quickly as I can. I'm hoping to read something like 80 pages in it today, which will leave me almost caught up, and also about 30% of the way through a library book that's due tomorrow.

Christmas, by the way, treated me well. As of today I'm all out of feasts to go to (except for one in early January), and I just have a week of relaxing and visiting with friends ahead of me. So Alice it is. I need to write about one of the books I finished before the holidays, which gets me half a point in my Year of Reading Women, so look for that tomorrow?
