It's Monday, So We Are Reading (obviously)

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to Ham for Ham.

Just kidding. You're here at "It's Monday, What Are You Reading?" instead. Sorry.

It's been a pretty good week for us. I managed to sneak in a breakfast at Panera with the husband and little girl one morning and I am really making an effort to get in a few days of exercise each week. Because I heard so many of you rave about it, I gave Yoga with Adriene a try and I think it will be a weekly staple for me.

Reading-wise, I finished Dexter Palmer's Version Control, which is a book I'm having difficulty fitting neatly into one genre. Now I'm planning to get a good historical fiction fix and read Hanging Mary

         Version Control  

It was a busy week on the blog! I reviewed Mr. Splitfoot and The Edge of Lost. I also talked about what makes a book get that much-coveted five star review from me.

What are you reading this week?

    1. That's always the trouble! You have to move the book from your list into your hands (or at least into your toppling tbr pile!).

    1. It was one of those reads that really pulls you in! I felt like I could have followed those characters for a lifetime.

  3. Tell me more about Yoga with Adriene. I'm away in NY getting my 200 certification now and went to the Yoga Journal conference.

    1. It's a series of online yoga videos that I kept seeing bloggers mention. I did the Yoga for Beginners video and it was simple enough to actually do, but I felt like I was learning.

  4. Hanging Mary looks like it would be fascinating!

    1. I really enjoy Civil War era historical fiction and I had never read anything about this woman, so it seemed like a great choice!

  6. I will be interested to see what you think about Hanging Mary. I was looking forward to it, but I couldn't get into it.

    ENJOY your week.

    1. It certainly wasn't my favorite historical fiction, but I liked learning about some new people.
