It is taking...everything I have not to stop writing this review and pick up this book instead.
I could justify it so easily. Just refreshing the ol memory, I could say. Itll take less than an hour. And think of the review! Masterful, probably.
Wow, I am really convincing myself. THIS IS DIFFICULT.
This was exactly what I wanted it to be. I wanted to read ...more
This is a perfect autumn read. This graphic novel gave me all the fall feels which was awesome because it's spring time where I am. I wanted to dive into these beautiful pages, to experience everything with Josiah and Deja.
It's Deja and Josiah's last night at the pumpkin patch they work at every Halloween season. The last chance for Josiah to finally speak to the fudge girl he's been crushing on for three seasons.
Deja convinces shy Josiah to go talk to ...more

Deja and Josiah are best friendsat least from September 1 through Halloween, and at least while theyre working together at the pumpkin patch. (They don't see each other at all except during that period of time.) Tonight is the last night theyll work together since both will head off to college next fall.
Josiah cant imagine a world without the pumpkin patch. Deja doesnt quite feel THAT strongly, but shell miss Josiah, and all the activity, and all of the great food. ...more
This is the perfect Fall read. The fall vibes were radiating off the page and it's the perfect read for the season. It made me ...more
Deja is such a fun character, first of all; she's plus-size, black, and queer (MGA it isn't stated if she's bi or pan). We see her interact with a few different exes and potential love interests of various genders and it's really lovely to see a ...more
I need more Rainbow Rowell after this. So hopefully Ill be rereading her contemporary work because this story put me in such a mood for them.
Rainbow Rowell understands characters! She knows dialogue. Her stories are always so engaging and heartwarming and I cant get enough. ...more
A quintessential autumn read. Take a stroll through a fall-themed amusement park filled with hay rides, corn mazes, pumpkins and pies and watch two friends maybe become something more. Hicks art is amazing - warm and bright.
Put me right into a wonderful fall mood. Where are my smores? 😀😋 ...more
Deja is ...more
Josiah has had a crush on a girl for 3 years now. Josiah loves working at the pumpkin patch. Deja is his best friend and she has decided that Josiah has to tell this girl he likes her. It becomes their quest. So they spend their last night looking for this girl.

I was lucky enough to meet Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks at my local bookstore on release day and they were amazing. I loved hearing about the inspiration for this story and getting my special edition 'Fangirl' and 'Eleanor and Park' signed was just the cherry on top.
Deja was the best character and I loved Josie as well. Also, I'm hungry now for some fall inspired food! Highly ...more
I know Ill be re-reading this lots. Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks are a perfect match. Can I have the Christmas elves sequel, please?! ...more
First of all, the atmosphere of the pumpkin patch and the Halloween season really came through. Faith's art was gorgeous and exactly right for this story. Pumpkin patches aren't a thing in the Netherlands and we barely celebrate Halloween, but reading this really made me want to ...more
Honestly, I don't think it's possible to have negative opinions about Pumpkinheads. It has positive representation for so many things (male/female friendship, diversity, bisexuality, consent, etc.), and the story line is short and sweet. I like my graphic novels like one slow cup of coffee. Or in this case, pumpkin spice latte.
Pumpkinheads is the tale of two best ...more
If youre like me, and youre READY for all things fall, this book is the perfect seasonal overdose.
Taking place on Halloween, this book is about two season friends on their last night working together. Deja and Josiah are best friends during the fall, but tend to stay out of touch when they arent working together the rest of the year. Next year theyll be in college, so they decide to make the best of it and do all the things they never did in previous years.
Rowells subtle comedic ...more
