It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

I feel a reading slump coming on.  Or I feel in the middle of a reading slump.  Or maybe it's ending.  I don't know, the feeling is definitely reading slump, I'm just not sure what part of it I'm in.  I don't know if it's the books I'm picking up or if it's just my attention span.  So, I've been trying different books, reading the ones I know will hold my interest, and hoping that soon I'll be tearing through the pages like I usually am!

What I Read Last Week
Hell-Bent by Benjamin Lorr is an inside look at the world of Bikram Yoga and the obsessive culture that can be a part of it.  Read my review to see how someone who practices Bikram feels about the book.  Get You Good by Rhonda Bowen is an Urban Christian novel about love, relationships, and betrayal.  

What I'm Reading Now
I started reading Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe this past week.  Not too far into it but looking forward to it.

What I Plan to Read Next

The Detour by Gerbrand Bakker is about a woman who flees her life in the Netherlands for a remote farm in Wales with her husband trying to find her.  The World is Moving Around Me by Dany Laferriere is a memoir about the Haiti Earthquake of 2010.

What are you reading this week?  Have you read any of these books?

    1. The writing is so beautiful, it doesn't flow like your typical memoir. I will be highly recommending it.

  2. The World is Moving around me looks like an emotional read. I look forward to your thoughts on it. I find that I hit reading slumps if I am just plowing from one book to the next. My reading resolution this year was to slow down a little and try to digest each book more. Have a great week!

    1. I resolved to change my reading habits this year, and so far I've been successful. I think other things are just taking my attention. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hope your reading slump doesn't last. How awful! I am in a "manic" reading period, reading way too much to be good for one woman. But I'm loving it.

    Have fun with these books!
