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!

Seven Secrets #3 by Tom Taylor, Daniele Di Nicuolo

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly feature that's hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It highlights the upcoming releases we're really excited about reading! CWW is a spinoff of the feature Waiting on Wednesday (WoW), that was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Dark Library by Cyrille Martinez, Joseph Patrick Stancil (Translation) 
Expected publication: October 20th 2020 by Coach House Books

Synopsis (via Goodreads): In Cyrille Martinez's library, the books are alive: not just their ideas or their stories, but the books themselves. Meet the Angry Young Book, who has strong opinions about who reads what and why. He's tired of people reading bestsellers, so he places himself on the desks of those who might appreciate him. Meet the Old Historian who mysteriously vanished from the stacks. Meet the Blue Librarian, the Mauve Librarian, the Yellow Librarian, and spend a day with the Red Librarian trying to banish coffee cups and laptops.

Then one day there are no empty desks anywhere in the Great Library. A great horde of student workers has descended, and they will scan every single book in the library: the much-borrowed, the neglected, the popular, the obscure. What will happen to the library then? Will it still be necessary?

The Dark Library is a theoretical fiction, a meditation on what libraries mean in our digital world. Has the act of reading changed? What is a reader? A book? Martinez, a librarian himself, has written a love letter to the urban forest of the dark, wild library, where ideas and stories roam free.

  2. Bill and Ted! Oh my gosh, they created a comic! I'm going to have to get my hands on a copy just for the novelty alone. The Dark Library sounds absolutely fascinating! There's something incredibly romantic about libraries, the history and years of borrowing, imagine how many have loved each book before you and will after you've returned it.

  3. If I were going to read comics it would probably be Avengers or Spiderman.
