It’s Saturday once again, and that means its time for Weekend Reading 187! This will come as no surprise, but The Beat elite are once again holing up inside Stately Beat Manor, getting lost in a good book.
As ever, we hope you’ll share you reading plans with us. Let us know what you’ll be paging through in the comment section!
AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend, I’m checking out Pet Peeves by Nicole Goux. As a huge fan of Everyone is Tulip, to say I’m excited about the book is an understatement! Then, an awesome Silver Sprocket delivery has brought Peepee Poopoo #80085 by Caroline Cash to my door. My cup floweth over!
KELAS LLOYD: I’m finally getting around to reading two books I’ve been meaning to read for a while. First up is The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. I loved the Netflix series and hear this is different but more queer so I have high hopes for that. The second is Drama by Rana Telgemier. Since it’s back being talked about as if it’s controversial again I think it’s really time I read the whole thing myself.
TAIMUR DAR: I’m in the midst of recovering from a minor cold, thus I’m looking to take it easy this weekend. So it’s perfect time to sit back and relax. Most people likely know I’m all about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It occurred to me that I have yet to check out the Archie era of the TMNT. So I’m rectifying that with the TMNT Adventures Volume 2 trade collection. Likewise, I’m nearing the end of my Invincible read.
D. Morris: Seeing Godzilla Minus One put me in the mood to catch up with Asadora!, Naoki Urasawa’s most recent series. Anything Urusawa does is a must read for me and Asadora! is no exception. I love how he skillfully combines the story of a girl growing up in 1960s Japan and the mystery behind a possible Kaiju.
CY BELTRAN: Aside from the new episode of Doctor Who, I plan to sit down and catch up on Newburn, the crime comic from Chip Zdarsky and Jacob Phillips. I caught the first few issues as they were coming out, but fell behind somewhere along the way, and I figure this is as good a weekend as any to catch up.
KRISTINA ELYSE BUTKE: I took a break from weekend reading during the Thanksgiving holiday, so I’m happy to be back on a reading schedule. I’m diving into The Dangerous Convenience Store Vol. 1 by 945, which is a BL manhwa about a convenience store worker whose shop is frequented by shady characters, and the gangster he meets who changes his life with something more than just friendship. I’m looking forward to this one!
REBECCA OLIVER KAPLAN: This weekend I’m reading El Deafo: Superpowered Edition! by Cece Bell.
