WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Personal:

I didn’t do a WWW last week. The kids had the day off (for Veterans Day) and I decided that I was going to take a day off from blogging/the computer/TV. I was getting overloaded with everything that is going on and needed a break. Also, my list didn’t change from November 4th. There was one book that I read for over a week before finishing on Saturday.

I found out that Miss R’s ex-instructor did almost the same thing to another 6 year old. He put that 6 year old on the back of the horse (the same horse), whipped it to make it rear up, and told the girl “If you fall off and break your neck, it is your fault and you will die.” I am so happy that I got Miss R out of there. There is talk (among the instructors) of going to the owner with the complaints.

Mr. Z and Miss B’s birthdays are upcoming. We aren’t doing anything special. Just a couple of cakes ordered from Sam’s Club and presents. I am still getting over that I will have two teenagers now. I don’t feel old enough!!!

BK and I started watching Truth Seekers on Amazon Prime. It has Simon Pegg, Nick Frost (both from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz…two of my favorite movies) and Malcolm McDowell (as Nick Frost’s dad). I am loving it!!!!

I am still playing Animal Crossing and Sims 4. I did get the newest Kingdom Hearts on the Switch. I played it for a bit on Sunday but not sure how I feel about it. BK got into early access for the new Amazon gaming service (Luna). It was laggy as heck but there were some interesting games on it. I told him that I would be very interested in checking it out when it releases.


What I am currently reading:

The World That We Knew
In 1941, during humanity’s darkest hour, three unforgettable young women must act with courage and love to survive, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Dovekeepers and The Marriage of Opposites Alice Hoffman.

In Berlin, at the time when the world changed, Hanni Kohn knows she must send her twelve-year-old daughter away to save her from the Nazi regime. She finds her way to a renowned rabbi, but it’s his daughter, Ettie, who offers hope of salvation when she creates a mystical Jewish creature, a rare and unusual golem, who is sworn to protect Lea. Once Ava is brought to life, she and Lea and Ettie become eternally entwined, their paths fated to cross, their fortunes linked.

Lea and Ava travel from Paris, where Lea meets her soulmate, to a convent in western France known for its silver roses; from a school in a mountaintop village where three thousand Jews were saved. Meanwhile, Ettie is in hiding, waiting to become the fighter she’s destined to be.

What does it mean to lose your mother? How much can one person sacrifice for love? In a world where evil can be found at every turn, we meet remarkable characters that take us on a stunning journey of loss and resistance, the fantastical and the mortal, in a place where all roads lead past the Angel of Death and love is never ending.

I recently finished reading:

Incubus Caged (The Incubus, #1)
A clever woman. A powerful incubus. A sorcerer who has finally made a mistake.

When Jessica volunteered as tribute to a sorcerer’s court, she knew that sex would be part of her job. However, she did not expect Lord Azrael to “feed” her to his pet incubus on her first day at work. She’s shocked that the incubus–a shapeshifting panther–can take the form of a man. She’s shocked that they have an audience. She’s even more shocked that she likes it. When the show is over, Jessica is sent off to new adventures, but she can’t stop thinking about him.

Mal, the incubus, can’t stop thinking about Jessica, either. Their liaison has revealed secrets about her–secrets that even Jessica doesn’t know. Mal will stop at nothing to escape from Azrael and kill him. He thinks he may be able to use Jessica to do it. However, he is rapidly developing feelings for her that he doesn’t understand. Even his relationship with Azrael is changing. Can an incubus fall in love? And what will happen when he is forced to choose between love and revenge?

The Incubus Series is an MMF bisexual shifter romance with lots of steamy scenes. Adults only.

What books I think I’ll read next:

City of the Lost (Rockton, #1)
Casey Duncan is a homicide detective with a secret: when she was in college, she killed a man. She was never caught, but he was the grandson of a mobster and she knows that someday this crime will catch up to her. Casey’s best friend, Diana, is on the run from a violent, abusive ex-husband. When Diana’s husband finds her, and Casey herself is attacked shortly after, Casey knows it’s time for the two of them to disappear again.

Diana has heard of a town made for people like her, a town that takes in people on the run who want to shed their old lives. You must apply to live in Rockton and if you’re accepted, it means walking away entirely from your old life, and living off the grid in the wilds of Canada: no cell phones, no Internet, no mail, no computers, very little electricity, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. As a murderer, Casey isn’t a good candidate, but she has something they want: She’s a homicide detective, and Rockton has just had its first real murder. She and Diana are in. However, soon after arriving, Casey realizes that the identity of a murderer isn’t the only secret Rockton is hiding—in fact, she starts to wonder if she and Diana might be in even more danger in Rockton than they were in their old lives.
Something Borrowed
Something old. Something new…?

When Chloe Cassidy is jilted at the altar it’s all her nightmares rolled into one. Her mother is convinced she’s the victim of the family curse. Her sister believes she just hasn’t found The One yet. But Chloe’s not listening; she’s too busy taking her humiliation out on the infuriating best man, Vaughn Brooks.

Three months later, Something Borrowed—her wedding planning business— is failing. In a last ditch attempt to save it, Chloe is forced to swallow her pride, and work with the enemy: too-hot for his own good, award-winning chef Vaughn. She soon realizes the sparks flying between them are nothing to do with their dubious past, but from something else altogether…

This fun perfect summer read features one sizzling chef, a meddling family and a wedding planner who’s given up on love.
Marrying Miss Marshal
A Woman in a Man’s Job

Filling the shoes of her late husband as town marshal hasn’t been easy for Danna Carpenter. She’s not only fighting criminals, she’s also fighting to earn the respect of the townspeople. So crossing paths with tenderfoot detective Chas O’Grady is the last thing she needs. He’s hunting a band of cattle rustlers and isn’t used to the rugged Wyoming landscape. Teaming up is their only option, but when circumstances place them in a compromising situation, the town forces a more permanent partnership — marriage. If they can let down their guards with each other they might find that love is the greatest catch of all.
Mutts Like Me (The Awakening #1)
All I ever wanted for the holidays was to have my family together. Unfortunately, with my mother dead, my grandmother drunk most of the time, and my dad… well, who knew who he was, much less where he’d disappeared to. No brothers, sisters, or cousins that I knew of.

Until now.

I just found out there’s a whole other world out there that I’m a part of, thanks to my dad.
Who it turns out is a freakin’ werewolf.
And still missing, by the way.


But now it seems I might be able to track him down – if I can just survive long enough to learn the truth about what happened to him, and somehow resist the pull of the silver-eyed fox who kidnapped me.

Happy flippin’ holidays to me.

Mutts Like Me. The stand alone first in a series set in the world of The Awakening, where every supernatural creature you ever heard of is not only real, they’re coming out of the closet and into the streets.
Infection (Emergence #1)
An epic struggle for survival between humans and a twisted mutation of undead begins in Emergence—the first book in a pulse-pounding post-apocalyptic series by author JT Sawyer. When a CIA bioweapons ship goes dark, operative Will Reisner and his team are sent to the South China Sea to investigate. As their mission unfolds, a deadly parasitic virus takes hold in cities around the globe, turning its victims into worm-riddled creatures bent on infecting others to increase their numbers, linked by a mysterious mental connection. After barely making it out alive, Reisner reluctantly joins forces with epidemiologist Selene Munroe, who has been trying to discover the origins of the virus to prevent humanity from being completely consumed by the horrific fiend that has been unleashed upon the world. Emergence is a bold reinvention of the well-worn zombie theme that will have you gripping the edge of your seat.
Stryker (Stryker #1)
From the bestselling author, Bobby Andrews, comes a thrilling new tale of a post-apocalyptic world. ISIS has unleashed a weaponized version of the deadly Ebola virus, killing 97% of the world’s population. Only the immune and those who hunkered down in remote locations remain.
Through the chaos strides a giant of a man known only as Stryker. He is a former Force Recon Marine, who has lost as much as anyone, but fights to preserve his honor and creed in the face of slave traders and rogue military elements who prey on the innocent. Together with his former Drill Instructor, Sarge, they struggle to eliminate the remaining evil elements in society, even as the nation’s infrastructure crumbles and life becomes considerably more difficult. Together, they care for three young women who survived the plague and attempt to give them lives that are as normal as possible under the circumstances.
Follow along as they travel through a world gone mad, determined to defend the weak and innocent against long odds.
Shadow Pack (Michael Biörn, #1)
Michael Biörn is a predator. Killing comes naturally to him. It’s in his blood.

Don’t judge him too fast, though. All his victims deserve to die.


After answering Lieutenant Harrington’s call for help, Michael finds himself in Houston staring at a peculiar crime scene. An expert in preternatural wildlife, he immediately identifies the killer as a werewolf. The motivation behind the murder remains unclear, but one thing is certain, Michael has no desire to stick his nose in wolf business. After all, the werewolves have hunted down his kin to the brink of extinction, and as the sole survivor of his lineage, he strives to keep a low profile.

Michael’s resolve vanishes when he finds Harrington and his wife savagely murdered in their home. As he sets to unearth the true motivations behind his friends’ slaying, the body count rises, and Michael soon becomes a suspect in the eyes of the law. But the police are the least of his concerns; the werewolves have uncovered his true nature, and they are coming for him.

The books in the Michael Biörn series are Whodunit Mysteries with an Urban Fantasy backdrop in the tradition of Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs and Christine Feehan.
