Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can’t wait to read.

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you know that my obsession with Poe Dameron from Star Wars: The Force Awakens aka most-beautiful-man-ever Oscar Isaac is very… um… enthusiastic. When news of Poe getting his own comic hit the Internet I was so stoked!! Star Wars: Poe Dameron  by Charles Soule (author) and Phil Noto (illustrator) will be diving into Poe’s background and his secret mission given to him by General Leia Organa. This also will involve some crossover with Star Wars: Before the Awakening which was released mid-December 2015. Very excited and looking forward to delving into this world and the Star Wars character’s storylines! The series is in stores April 6, 2016.

Synopsis: (via Goodreads)

Star Wars: Poe Dameron will show how Poe became to be known as the greatest pilot in the Resistance. Handpicked by General Leia, Poe Dameron and a squadron of pilots fly the most dangerous and top secret missions against the First Order.

Waiting On Wednesday (2)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can’t wait to read.

I’m back with a new edition of a Waiting on Wednesday post! There are a bunch of October releases I’m looking forward to but I’m especially ready for this one!

Black Widow: Forever Red | Margaret Stohl
Available for purchase on October 13, 2015 at: Amazon « Barnes & Noble « Book Depository

I’m addicted to the comic world and superheroes these days and I’m all about Girl Power! What better way than Marvel releasing a novel about one of Avengers’ most bad-ass chicks than Natasha Romanoff’s story. Seriously she’s who I want to be when I grow up and I think Scarlett Johansson does a really great job being that heroic female in a powerhouse full of men. She brings it. Always. I’m ready to read her story.

Synopsis (via Goodreads):

Enter the world of the Avengers’ iconic master spy 

Natasha Romanoff is one of the world’s most lethal assassins. Trained from a young age in the arts of death and deception, Natasha was given the title of Black Widow by Ivan Somodorov, her brutal teacher at the Red Room, Moscow’s infamous academy for operatives.

Ava Orlova is just trying to fit in as an average Brooklyn teenager, but her life has been anything but average.The daughter of a missing Russian quantum physicist, Ava was once subjected to a series of ruthless military experiments-until she was rescued by Black Widow and placed under S.H.I.E.L.D. protection. Ava has always longed to reconnect with her mysterious savior, but Black Widow isn’t really the big sister type.

Until now.

When children all over Eastern Europe begin to go missing, and rumors of smuggled Red Room tech light up the dark net, Natasha suspects her old teacher has returned-and that Ava Orlova might be the only one who can stop him. To defeat the madman who threatens their future, Natasha and Ava must unravel their pasts. Only then will they discover the truth about the dark-eyed boy with an hourglass tattoo who haunts Ava’s dreams. . . .

So I’m doing my first Waiting on Wednesday post which I’m excited about because I can’t wait for this book to come out!

Face Paint: The Story of Makeup | Lisa Eldridge
Available for purchase on October 13, 2015 at: Amazon « Barnes & Noble

Probably not your typical Waiting on Wednesday title you’d see but I’m obsessed with make up even though I can’t afford the good stuff and I definitely cannot make myself up but I can still be in awe of those who have this kind of talent. [Side note: also HUGE fan of SyFy’s Face Off film make up challenge and competition show as well!] I think it will be interesting to see the history of make up, how centuries ago they didn’t have MAC and Estée Lauder counters so it’ll be fascinating to see where these pieces to paint your face were improvised and derived from.


Makeup, as we know it, has only been commercially available in the last 100 years, but applying decoration to the face and body may be one of the oldest global social practices. In Face Paint, Lisa Eldridge reveals the entire history of the art form, from Egyptian and Classical times up through the Victorian age and golden era of Hollywood, and also surveys the cutting-edge makeup science of today and tomorrow. Face Paint explores the practical and idiosyncratic reasons behind makeup’s use, the actual materials employed over generations, and the glamorous icons that people emulate and how they achieved their effects. An engaging history of style, it is also a social history of women and the ways in which we can understand their lives through the prism and impact of makeup.

Probably should choose a YA book but I saw this book on a blog recently and it’s been on my mid ever since!

What’s everyone else waiting on???
