READ ON FOR NON-SPOILER REVIEW:

 

4/5 stars

Pumpkin Heads is a sweet story about two best friends on their last Halloween together before college.

It is fun, witty and adorable through and through. It’s a quick read, and quite worth it.

My favourite part was the autumn theme, mainly because I love autumn, its vibe and its orange and red hues. The pumpkin patch setting fit perfectly.

I also want to point out the diverse representation in this book. Off the top of my head, there’s LGBT+ and plus-size representation. I wouldn’t say there are any trigger warnings… correct me if I’m wrong in the comments.

The artwork of Faith E.H. was just lovely and added a unique touch to the story. Rainbow Rowell’s dialogue is cute and funny, however, one major drawback was the lack of depth in the story. I enjoyed the ending, which was somewhat predictable, but I did not think the story quite led up to it as well as it could have.

Anyway – for the most part, I was not disappointed. 4 stars! If you want a fast, pleasant read, then this book is perfect.

 

Happy reading!

PS: Can we just talk about how awesome the cover is?

It sound like a great book, I don’t read many comics but I do want to read more, I will try and get my hands on a copy. Yes the cover is quite awesome, and it definitely adds to the appeal of the book, what type of genre is it? Romance? Comedy? Drama?

I'd say there are 3 main genres: contemporary, romance and friendship
There's also LGBT+ material and a bit of family as well?
