It’s Wednesday friends of B+S, and you know what that means! You don’t know what that means? Oh… Well, let me tell you. Today is WWW Wednesday! It’s the day that I answer the three W’s:

  1. What am I currently reading?
  2. What did I recently finish?
  3. What do I think I’ll read next.

WWW Wednesday is a great way to update my readers, and let them in on what’s going down in my reading life.

This weekly reader’s check-in meme is hosted by Sam over at Taking on a World of Words.

What am I currently reading?

As WWII breaks out, a father finds himself in the U.S. while his wife and sons are home in Norway. Based on the son’s true-life journal from 1935-1945, this is the story of a family separated by war and uncertainty, and a young boy with a secret that could change the course of the war.

Occupied was a review copy sent to me by Kurt Blorstad, and it highlights the real-life journal of his father during his family’s time in Norway during WWII. Even though historical-fiction isn’t my normal genre to read, this book will definitely change that. I see myself reading a lot more historical fiction novels in my near future, especially if they have personal accounts such as this one does.

I’m halfway through it, and I’m really loving it. Great descriptions of the setting, and it’s not hard to follow along. Besides that, WWII books and documentaries really interest me, so this read was one that I knew would be easy to do.

If you want to go back in time with this little bite of history, get your copy here.

What did I recently finish?

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, original photo by Bri Hotchkiss creator of Books and Shadows

No synopsis is needed for book numero uno of The Folk of the Air series. Anyone who is anyone, and then some, have heard about this remarkable tale of the Fae… and for good reason. IT WAS AMAAAAZING! I absolutely adored The Cruel Prince and all the intrigue and gore that came stuffed inside.

I actually had moments when the main character, Jude, absolutely made me want to pull my hair out in frustration, but in hindsight, she was just being a typical teenager who has gone through some extreme trauma. So, she’s bound to be a bit irrational at times. I cannot wait to get to Wicked King!

What do I think I’ll read next.

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you! I’m attempting my first double reader, and I’m a bit nervous but mostly excited to see if I can do it. I plan to do a book review on All the Stars and Teeth and I’m just trying to wrap up the series and get started with The Wicked King as soon as possible…. because it’s just that good.

I see so many people out there who are able to read multiple books at a time, and I always wondered how in the heck were they able to do it. Looks like this month will be my own little test phase to see if I have what it takes.

You can read more about what these books are about on my March TBR post.

Those are my WWWs everyone! If you’re reading this and feel inspired to do your own, please do! Leave a comment so that I can go to your blog and see what your responses are.

Until next time 🙂
