Happy Saturday and welcome to Vague Recollections, a new bookish meme hosted by Kait Plus Books (hey, that’s me!) where every week readers band together to describe books in the most vague way possible! For fun!
- Describe the book on Kait’s post as vaguely as possible in the comments section
- Go to your own blog and make a post about a different book
- Link your post in the Mister Linky on Kait Plus Books
- People will then describe that book as vaguely as possible in your comments section
- Visit and comment on other blogs so that everyone gets some post love!
Anyone who has visited my blog during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon the past few years has probably seen me hosting my mini-challenge, Vague Recollections. I love doing it so much that I thought it would be fun to make it into a weekly meme! But! The way it works is a little different.
For this meme each reader will choose a book, and then in the comments section of their post other readers will try to describe the book in the most vague terms possible. For example, I might describe my book today as:
This book is about goblins. Or fairies? It definitely makes me think of winter, so maybe the cover has snow on it? I think… and this could be totally wrong, but I think it takes place in Germany? And music is important. I remember that.
As horrible as that description is, it does… technically, describe the book. And the best part about this is that you don’t actually have to have read the books to participate! All you have to read is the summary, and make a vague summary based on that!
So your mission today, should you accept it, is to describe the book below as vaguely as you can in my comments, and then pick a book to make your own post with so people can describe that book as vaguely as possible in your comments!
For today’s post, you should try to describe…

The last night of the year. Now the days of winter begin and the Goblin King rides abroad, searching for his bride…
All her life, Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, dangerous Goblin King. They’ve enraptured her mind, her spirit, and inspired her musical compositions. Now eighteen and helping to run her family’s inn, Liesl can’t help but feel that her musical dreams and childhood fantasies are slipping away.
But when her own sister is taken by the Goblin King, Liesl has no choice but to journey to the Underground to save her. Drawn to the strange, captivating world she finds—and the mysterious man who rules it—she soon faces an impossible decision. And with time and the old laws working against her, Liesl must discover who she truly is before her fate is sealed.
Rich with music and magic, S. Jae-Jones's Wintersong will sweep you away into a world you won’t soon forget.
