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:
It’s a book by more than one author I think. Or maybe an author and an illustrator? It definitely has an illustrated cover! And people have really been enjoying it, I think. I’m like 99% sure it has something to do with fall?
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…
Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell, Faith Erin Hicks

Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.
Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.
But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.
Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: What if—instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut—they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .
What if their last shift was an adventure?
Beloved writer Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award–winning artist Faith Erin Hicks have teamed up to create this tender and hilarious story about two irresistible teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place—and a person—with no regrets.
