My Weekly Pull [93] & Can't Wait Wednesday [63]

My Weekly Pull is something I do every Wednesday (when the stars align in my favor) 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!

Amazing Mary Jane #1 by Leah Williams, Carlos E. Gomez, Humberto Ramos
Marauders #1 by Gerry Duggan, Matteo Lolli, Russell Dauterman

Jacob's comics for the week!
Absolute Carnage Lethal Protectors #3 by Frank Tieri, Flaviano, Greg Smallwood
Amazing Spider-Man Full Circle #1 by Nick Spencer, Chris Bachalo, Rod Reis
Amazing Spider-Man #32 by Nick Spencer, Patrick Gleason, Mahmud Asrar
Punisher Kill Krew #4 by Gerry Duggan, Juan Ferreyra

Both of my comics are new, so I'm not entirely sure what to expect! However, I am familiar with the writers. Gerry Duggan is writing Marauders and I've enjoyed his work in the past (Deadpool & Guardians of the Galaxy). I haven't read anything X-Men related in awhile (unless you count The New Mutants: War Children, which I don't), and hope this one doesn't disappoint!

Leah Williams is also writing the new Gwenpool comic -- which I'm not loving -- so hopefully her MJ is better than her Gwen!

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.

Girls Like Us by Randi Pink
Expected publication: October 29th 2019
Synopsis (via Goodreads): Set in the summer of 1972, this moving YA historical novel is narrated by teen girls from different backgrounds with one thing in common: Each girl is dealing with pregnancy.

Four teenage girls. Four different stories. What they all have in common is that they’re dealing with unplanned pregnancies.

In rural Georgia, Izella is wise beyond her years, but burdened with the responsibility of her older sister, Ola, who has found out she’s pregnant. Their young neighbor, Mississippi, is also pregnant, but doesn’t fully understand the extent of her predicament. When her father sends her to Chicago to give birth, she meets the final narrator, Susan, who is white and the daughter of an anti-choice senator.

Randi Pink masterfully weaves four lives into a larger story – as timely as ever – about a woman’s right to choose her future.


I have a feeling Girls Like Us is going to be a very emotional read!

  1. Girls Like Us sounds like a powerful story. And the 1970’s setting will likely make it even more so, since teen pregnancy was viewed very differently then. Glad this one is now on my radar!

    1. You know I'm always happy to feed your TBR Monster, Tanya. ;) I honestly didn't realize this one was set in the 70's, so thanks for bringing that to my attention! <3

  2. Girls Like Us does sound like it's going to be very emotional!

    1. I already have a pack of tissues on hand! ;)

  3. Ahh Girls Like Us sounds like such a good read! Thank you for sharing :)

    1. I was recently approved to read this one for a blog tour, and I am beyond excited to start it!

  4. I'll be looking out for what you think of Amazing Mary Jane. It looks interesting. ๐Ÿ‘✨

    Girls Like Us sounds brilliant! I am adding it to Goodreads. Thanks for the heads up. ๐Ÿ“š✨

    1. I've always loved Mary Jane! I think her relationship with Peter speaks volumes about what true love really is. I hope Girls Like Us is as brilliant as it sounds! :)

    1. Fingers crossed the story is as good as the synopsis! <3

  6. I haven't read too many books set in the 70s so this could be interesting.

    Enjoy your reads!

  7. Marauders sounds fun! You can't go wrong with a group of super heroes, right?! And Girls Like Us totally sounds brilliant. We need more books with different perspectives. I think its fascinating that its set back a ways. Why not now?! ❤️ Thanks for sharing Lindsi.

    1. I hope Marauders is fun! I haven't read a good X-Men comic in awhile! I've heard the newest series is fantastic (the one they cancelled all the other series for), but haven't picked it up. Now I don't feel like starting in the middle or hunting down the earlier issues. It's probably me just being lazy, haha.

      I'm curious how the 70s setting will impact the story for Girls Like Us! Like you said, why not now? I feel like their issues will be relatable regardless. :)
