My Weekly Pull [74] & Can't Wait Wednesday [44]

My Weekly Pull is something I do every Wednesday (pretend it's 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!

Transformers #7 by Brian Ruckley, Cachet Whitman, Christian Ward
Goosebumps: Horrors of the Witch House #2 by Denton J. Tipton, Chris Fenoglio, Matthew Dow Smith

Spider-Man Life Story #4 (of 6) The '90s by Chip Zdarsky, Mark Bagley
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #7 by Tom Taylor, Ken Lashley, Andrew Robinson

Jacob's comics for the week!
Amazing Spider-Man #23 by Nick Spencer, Ryan Ottley
Punisher #12 by Matthew Rosenberg, Szymon Kudranski, Greg Smallwood
Symbiote Spider-Man #3 (of 5) by Peter David, Greg Land, Ron Lim
Venom #15 by Cullen Bunn, Iban Coello, Kyle Hotz

Transformers and Goosebumps are two comics that I'm reading with my son! We're really enjoying both, even though we've only read the first issue of Goosebumps. I feel like we've been waiting forever for the second issue to be released! 

The Spider-Man Life Story comics have been amazing! If you like Spider-Man, these are a MUST! Tom Taylor also writes a wonderful version of Spider-Man, and I cannot wait to see where this newest arc will take Peter. The last issue was so confusing, but then it was perfect! Well played, Tom. 

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.

My Jasper June by Lauren Snyder
Expected publication: September 3rd 2019
Synopsis (via Goodreads): “This book is a treasure—a touching story of friendship, loss, and finding beauty in the everyday, with characters who stay with you long after you’ve turned the final page. I absolutely loved it.”—R. J. Palacio, New York Times bestselling author of Wonder

Laurel Snyder, author of Orphan Island, returns with another unforgettable story of the moments in which we find out who we are, and the life-altering friendships that show us what we can be.

The school year is over, and it is summer in Atlanta. The sky is blue, the sun is blazing, and the days brim with possibility. But Leah feels. . . lost. She has been this way since one terrible afternoon a year ago, when everything changed. Since that day, her parents have become distant, her friends have fallen away, and Leah’s been adrift and alone.

Then she meets Jasper, a girl unlike anyone she has ever known. There’s something mysterious about Jasper, almost magical. And Jasper, Leah discovers, is also lost.

Together, the two girls carve out a place for themselves, a hideaway in the overgrown spaces of Atlanta, away from their parents and their hardships, somewhere only they can find.


But as the days of this magical June start to draw to a close, and the darker realities of their lives intrude once more, Leah and Jasper have to decide how real their friendship is, and whether it can be enough to save them both.

I haven't read Orphan Island, or any other book by this author, but I absolutely love the synopsis! Also, the cover is amazing and what immediately caught my attention.
