My Weekly Pull [65] & Can't Wait Wednesday [35]

My Weekly Pull is something I do every Wednesday to show which comics I had pulled for me that week! If you're into comics, or you're looking to start, please join me! If you decide to do your own post, there's a link-up at the bottom. I would love to stop by and check it out!


Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #5 by Tom Taylor, Jorge Molina, Andrew Robinson

Jacob's comics for the week!
Hit-Girl Season 2 #3 by Kevin Smith, Pernille Orum, Francesco Francavilla
Amazing Spider-Man #19 by Nick Spencer, Humberto Ramos
Spider-Man Deadpool #49 by Robbie Thompson, Jim Towe, Dave Johnson
Symbiote Spider-Man #1 by Peter David, Greg Land, Skottie Young
War of the Realms Journey Into Mystery #1 by Clint McElroy, Andre Araujo, Marko Djurdjevic
Web of Venom Cult of Carnage #1 by Frank Tieri, Danilo Beyruth, Joshua Cassara

I only have one this week! Tom Taylor's Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man has been an awesome series so far, but I knew Taylor would deliver. I've really enjoyed his take on Peter Parker. It's refreshing, but also familiar.


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, that highlights upcoming releases that we're anticipating and excited to read. It's a spinoff of the feature Waiting on Wednesday that was hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Friend or Fiction by Abby Cooper
Expected publication: October 8th 2019
Synopsis (via Goodreads): One creative middle-schooler schooler discovers that the best friend a girl can have is the one she makes herself in this charming magical realism read.

Jade's life hasn't exactly been normal lately, especially since her dad's cancer diagnosis. Jade wishes her family could leave their no-name town in Colorado already--everybody else does sooner rather than later, including every best friend Jade's ever had. So she makes one up. In the pages of her notebook, she writes all about Zoe--the most amazing best friend anyone could dream of.


But when pretend Zoe appears in real life thanks to a magical experiment gone right, Jade isn't so sure if she likes sharing her imaginary friend with the real world. To keep her best friend (and even make some new ones), Jade learns how to cope with jealousy, that friends should let friends be true to themselves, and that maybe the perfect best friend doesn't exist after all.

I think Friend or Fiction will be a fun, and potentially educational, story for me to read to the kiddos. I know my two-year-old girls don't necessarily understand jealousy, but we've been working on sharing (they don't really care for it). My son is interacting with more kids his age these days (soccer, jiu-jitsu, etc.), and we've had a few talks about playing well with others. He's supposed to be kind even when dealing with unkindness, because sometimes people don't know how to express their thoughts and feelings the right way. Life lessons!

    1. I hope it's as good as it sounds! I like it when books have an educational aspect, or help teach children a better way to handle bad situations/feelings. I think it gives them something to reflect on when faced with similar issues.

  2. I have an ARC of Friend or Fiction and I am all about it. I love stories like this, and I have been adoring all the MG books I have been reading lately.

    1. I feel like you always have the books I'm most looking forward to reading, haha. I guess that's why I love following your blog so much. ;) I've been getting more into MG since I stared reading them to my son at night while he falls asleep. We went through my favorites (Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl), and I've been looking for new stuff! Gregor the Overlander was an amazing book and series, although Collins likes to crush people's hearts.

    1. Awesome! Do you read more DC than Marvel, or do you like both? Most of our stuff is Marvel, but I like a lot of Boom! Studios, IDW, and Image. Titan Comics also has interesting stuff from time to time. I believe that's what published V.E. Schwab's series.

    2. I read DC comics a bit more than Marvel, but it really just depends on what Marvel comics I can get a hold of. I tend to like the DC comics better, and the Marvel movies better.

    3. Interesting! Are you ready for the final Avengers movie? I'm pumped! My mom said she enjoyed Aquaman, but I know she was only there for the shirtless scenes. ;)

      If you have a chance to read West Coast Avengers by Kelly Thompson, I highly recommend it! Also, All-New Wolverine by Tom Taylor. It's not ongoing like WCA, but it was a good run. Oh! Jody Houser's Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows (also over, but amazing).

    1. Argh! I'm sorry. I totally forgot to add the linkup! My brain must have temporarily fritzed. I'll add one momentarily! I just have to finish mowing the lawn first, haha. Friend or Fiction sounds amazing! I cannot wait!!

    2. Okay, it's there now. Sorry again! Also, do you know of another site that allows you to create linkups like this one? Inlinkz has updated their site, and I'm not a fan of the new format.

    3. Thanks! I don't know of any, but I want to do some looking around because my Newbery award linky is microscopic! Ha ha. If I find anything new, I'll let you know. 👍✨
