I may be testing out some formats for the Sunday Salon in the next few weeks. Reading updates, of course. But talking about my workhouts/health seems to make sense, too, since those change weekly. So here is my first try.
- Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield
- The Dangerous Animals Club by Stephen Tobolosky
- Fun Home by Alison Bechdel
- Parasite by Mira Grant
- Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau
- The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner
- Betsy and the Great World by Maud Hart Lovelace
- Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekannen
- Elegy for Eddie by Jacqueline Winspear
I am doing really well with my resolutions. The water is hard so I am slowly building my way back to 64 ounces (4 16-oz water bottles). And the yoga class I tried to go to was rescheduled so there isn’t much I can do about that. It seems a week of clean eating and healthy living have already eradicated the 2.5 pounds I put on over Christmas which gives me the motivation to keep going. Plus, I already feel so much better than I did.
This week I have 3 runs (only 4 miles total) on the training schedule, a yoga class, and I am heading back to ballet after a few weeks.
How are your resolutions going? 5 days strong?
I tried reading Bellman & Black but couldn’t get into it. Good for you for sticking to your resolutions so far! One week of good eating/healthful behaviors is a great start. 🙂
Sounds like you are off to a good start!
Can’t wait to hear what you think about Bellman & Black.
I saw your review on Goodreads. Makes me nervous…
I was SO excited about Bellman & Black but abandoned my plan of reading it after the reviews started coming in. My resolutions are going really really well, thanks to the Fitbit. Five days of clean living has made me feel like a million bucks!
I figure The Thirteenth Tale was so good that B&B deserves a try even with the bad reviews.
Nice to see Sunday Salon back again, Michelle. Hope you are enjoying reading ‘Bellman and Black’. Will look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. I will also look forward to hearing your thoughts on Alison Bechdel’s ‘Fun Home’ and Gae Polisner’s ‘The Pull of Gravity’.
Happy reading and Happy running and enjoy your yoga classes!
I’m nervous about Bellman & Black because of the bad reviews…
