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!
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, my book today is The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, so I might describe it as:
That book where the girl hates the boy, or maybe the boy hates the girl? I think there’s definitely murder and possibly fairies? At some point, I’m positive they go to Target.
As horrible as that description is, it does… technically, describe The Cruel Prince. 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 Cruel Prince 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 describeThe Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Of course I want to be like them. They're beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him--and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
