Hi loves!, I hope you’re having a great start to the week, I know it’s hard to start after the weekend, so from here, I send THE BEST ENERGIES 🌻 to you!. Today I bring you the weekly meme “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”, which I love since it allows us to keep up of our recent and future readings, so without further ado let’s start!!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila fromBook Journey.Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.And here we are!
🌿 What I Read Last Week 🌿
The Sword and the Dagger by Robert Cochran
When empires clash,
a Princess, a Knight, and an Assassin
embark on the quest of a lifetime
During the time of the Crusades, an unlikely trio—a Christian princess, her affianced prince, and a Muslim assassin—embarks on a quest to the court of the most fearsome warrior the world has ever known, Genghis Khan.
A rousing tale of adventure and romance about three young people who must grapple with fundamental issues of loyalty, friendship, faith, honor, and courage against the backdrop of conflicts that still resonate today.
This book is very good in terms of representation and history, the book follows Christian and Muslim characters, and I think it’s very rich and interesting to read because of that, we have discussions about beliefs and religions which is great. Also, note that the author has researched very well on the subject before writing, what is always appreciated.
I think, on the other hand, it’s a bit weak in terms of the plot, and the characters, but I still think that if you like historical fantasy, this book could be just what you’re looking for. This book is released tomorrow so if you want to know more about it I leave you my FULL REVIEW in here
🌿 What I’m Reading At Present 🌿
Middlegame by Seanan McGuire
Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story.
Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math.
Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realise it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.
Meet Reed, skilled in the alchemical arts like his progenitor before him. Reed created Dodger and her brother. He’s not their father. Not quite. But he has a plan: to raise the twins to the highest power, to ascend with them and claim their authority as his own.
Godhood is attainable. Pray it isn’t attained.

I couldn’t wait to read this ARC, I’m so excited, you know I love the Wayward Children saga, so reading a new book from the author is a pleasure for me.
I just finished watching the Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy, and I think this book reminds me a lot of that series but with more scientific stuff. I don’t go really that much inside of, I think about 50 pages because I haven’t had much time to read, but OMG is REALLY good, it starts very strong and I think it will only get better. So, soon I’ll be telling you a little more about this book
🌿 Up Next 🌿
Any of these could be my next reading, I know I’ll be starting to read A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab very soon along with my boyfriend but as we read that one, I’ll also be reading another one and that could be Ask Me Anything by Molly E. Lee, which seems like a lot of fun but also interesting. I also want to continue making a lot of progress this month with my ARCs and so next month I will not have so much pressure with them.
Super excited by both readings so I’ll tell you what I think of them while reading them
