If you enjoy fantasy, retellings, or Arthurian legend (and aren't opposed to the occasional zombie), then I highly recommend Once & Future. I've only read the first two issues and I'm completely smitten with the story! There's also a kickass grandma! Her grandson is adorable and wholly unprepared for the world she's thrown him into. I'm am so, so happy they decided to make this an ongoing series instead of a mini -- whoop!

Firefly is about to get ugly! I hope Greg Pak doesn't kill off anyone I like, because that would really suck. The first issue of Spider-Man was brutal. My eyes were watering after two pages (I'm seriously going to cry just thinking about it)! Damn you, J.J. Abrams! I believe this new series is going to be about MJ and Peter's son, Ben.

Marked is a new one I'm going to try -- just look at that cover! Also, "terrifying, soul-destroying magic" sounds like loads of fun. ↣ The Marked may look like cool young influencers, but beneath the designer clothes, their bodies are tattooed with the magical glyphs of an ancient order that secretly protects the world against evil forces. With no new occult threats, The Marked use their tattooed powers solely for the pursuit of pleasure until a young woman called Liza creates a dangerous new form of Hybrid Sorcery. The party is over for The Marked. You'll believe in magic-terrifying, soul-destroying magic.

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.

Sick Kids in Love by Hannah Moskowitz
Expected publication: 11/5/19
Synopsis (via Goodreads): Isabel has one rule: no dating.
It's easier--
It's safer--
It's better--
--for the other person.
She's got issues. She's got secrets. She's got rheumatoid arthritis.
But then she meets another sick kid.
He's got a chronic illness Isabel's never heard of, something she can't even pronounce. He understands what it means to be sick. He understands her more than her healthy friends. He understands her more than her own father who's a doctor.
He's gorgeous, fun, and foul-mouthed. And totally into her.
Isabel has one rule: no dating.
It's complicated--
It's dangerous--
It's never felt better--
--to consider breaking that rule for him.


I wasn't sure about this one until I saw the small print on the cover! It says, They don't die in this one, which is a huge relief after reading the synopsis.

  1. I've seen so much good praise for Sick Kids Love. I'll have to give it a try myself! I'm glad that they don't die either! Phew!

    1. Same! I'm always wary of books with sick characters, especially when it's two kids falling in love. It usually doesn't end well and leaves me feeling emotionally wrung out.

  2. Replies
    1. Right?? I feel like it effectively counters the title. :)

  3. I posted my review for Sick Kids the other day, and it was a hit for me. Honestly, I would have given it the full 5-stars had the author resisted the political creep, but I know that's a pet peeve of mine, that other people are ok with. It was a wonderful book, and I hope you get to read it.

    1. Political references are always hit or miss for me... it really depends on how it's done, and if it's relevant to the character. When it's clearly just the author's opinion being forced into a book, it's annoying whether I agree or not. That's not why I read fiction! I'm happy that the book was a hit overall! I'm really looking forward to reading this one. :)

  4. I haven't heard of Once and Future but it sounds really good! I want to check out Marked too!

    1. Once & Future is FANTASTIC! If you decide to read it, DM me so we can discuss!! I hope Marked is as good as it looks. :)

  5. I like the sound of these ones. I will check them out.

    1. Awesome! I'm always happy to feed the TBR Monster. ;)

  6. I've seen the cover around a lot and I'll admit I'm intrigued! I did worry that one of them would die too (John Green style) but I'm glad it says they don't on the cover! (I wouldn't have noticed that.) Let's hope it's not false advertising! lol

    1. I actually didn't notice the tagline until doing this post, haha. Ugh, John Green likes to make you really care about people before he kills them off. Jerk! ;) Have you watched Looking for Alaska on Netflix? I thought they did the book justice! I also cried like a big baby, even though I KNEW what was going to happen.

  7. I just got Sick Kids for review, and I'm eager to read it. Oh, and while I was searching for info on the cover artist, I found out that the author had jokingly suggested that tagline and was surprised (happily, I believe) when they actually used it!

    1. I'm sure the tagline will make a huge difference! I've been avoiding sobfest books, haha. I just get so down afterwards, and I just cannot mentally do that right now. :) Thanks for the interesting tidbit!

  8. Sick Kids Love seems to be everywhere these days! It's on a number of bookstagram posts as of late. Makes me want to read it, too.

    Enjoy your comics and graphic novels!

    1. I've heard really wonderful things about Sick Kids Love! I especially like the tagline! ;)
