The Perfect Graphic Novel for Pumpkin Spice Season: Pumpkinheads

21 Oct

Hello fellow readers, fall is here and that means its pumpkin spice season. So, if you’re in the mood to read a great book let me recommend Rainbow Rowell’s Pumpkinheads. It’s a young adult graphic novel about two best friends who work in the best place of all…a pumpkin patch at a pumpkin festival. As the story goes on, both best friends Josiah and Deja go on a quest to find the girl of Josiah’s dreams. As they try very hard to execute their mission, Deja cannot help but make many pit stops along the way to have some harvest delights like caramel apples and kettle corn. The artwork is amazing. I highly recommend this graphic novel to all fall lovers. I gave this story a five out of five stars!
