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

39863306When 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.

|| Goodreads||

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

35965482Meet 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

  1. Hi Sofi,
    I am really intrigued by “Middle Game”. I have to read it. I can’t wait to read your review!
    “A Darker Shade of Magic”! Yessss! I love it so much! I’m so glad you decided to read it. I hope you’ll like it as much as I did.

    At the moment I’m reading “State of Sorrow” by Melinda Salisbury. I’m liking it. And I was sure I would like it because it has all the elements of a book that is likely to appeal to me: Magic, a Court, Two enemy Reigns, romance, beautiful worldbuilding.

    • I’m loving Middle Game, I don’t want to rush to say anything about it but so far it’s really FANTASTIC 😍
      A Darker Shade of Magic is one of those books that I feel I’ll love, so I cross my fingers for that 🤞🏻
      Well, girl, I’m adding State of Sorrow to my TBR right now just cause of you, it sounds INCREDIBLE 👏🏻

  2. Ahhh, Middlegame sounds SO GOOD. I really need to get more of the authors books they all sound really great. AND, you had me at similarities between this book and The Umbrella Academy. Literally saw that and I was like YEP SIGN ME TF UP. I just finished TUA so I’m feeling a little hungover from it and missing it!

    • Middlegame is simply INCREDIBLE so far, I can’t stop reading it and loving every second. I think the beginning is VERY similar to TUA, I just finished that TV series as well and I really liked it!. But right now the book is taking on its own personality and is SO original. It’s all about Alchemists and Twins with extraordinary abilities and an Impossible City, is just great. I haven’t finished it yet, but I still would recommend it, is that ok? 😅


  3. I just read a book of Oscar Wilde poetry which was blah, I definitely like his stories much better. I’m currently reading Lost Gods by Brom which has just sucked me in like nothing else. It’s dark and magical and Brom is SO good at keeping me guessing through his stories. I am loving this book. I’ll probably also be reading A Darker Shade Of Magic next. I just bought myself the trilogy box set for my birthday and, after listening to the author on The World Shapers podcast, I’m more excited to finally read it.

    • Ok, now I have to check Lost Gods by Brom out because it sounds VERY good!. I’m glad you’re going to read Darker Shade Of Magic, I just started with it, I do not know how I feel yet, but I’m excited to continue reading I feel like it has great potential! I hope you enjoy it 💕

  4. I’ve seen Middle Game elsewhere and haven’t get added it to my list but I might consider. VE Schwab is on my TBR after hearing an interview with her on Writing Excuses podcast. Can’t wait to get to her work. I’ve heard really great things about the Near Witch as well as the others so who know where I’ll start.

    • I swear, I’m loving every second of Middlegame so far, so even though I haven’t finished it yet, I recommend you add it, is SO INCREDIBLE. I die to finish it and tell you all, more about it. 😍
      I’ve been hearing incredible things about Near Witch!, I’ve read three of her works so far, and I liked everything so I’m excited to jump to one of her best known works 😊
