#Pumpkinheads…by Rainbow Rowell and Illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks

#Pumpkinheads…by Rainbow Rowell and Illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks

‘You’re my best friend! You’re better than my winter-spring-summer friends.’   I am pretty new to graphic novels so when I won a copy of ‘Pumpkin Heads’ on GoodReads I was super excited. ‘Pumpkinheads’ is written by Rainbow Rowell and illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks. It tells the story of two friends who work at their local fall festival each year ( the story takes place during one shift). Since I love Rainbow Rowell, I love fall festivals, and I adore Autumn I was super excited about Pumpkinheads.   The illustrations were amazing. I particularly loved the map of the fall theme park. The colors were all in Autumn tones so they really set the scene well ( I could almost smell the pumpkin).   One of my favorite parts was learning about all the cool snacks that Deja ate […]

Attachments…by Rainbow Rowell

Attachments…by Rainbow Rowell

It’s the late 1990’s and the newspaper that Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scriber-Snyder work for has begun monitoring their emails.  Lincoln O’Neill  has been assigned the task of reading them. In the process Lincoln finds out that his job may be more challenging than he thought.   I am a big fan of Rainbow Rowell. She writes great characters and wonderful storylines. I am also a big fan of fresh and new premises. Combine these with a book set in the 1990’s and you got me. (Also, I love a good double meaning title!)   Vintage pop culture references is one of my favorite things in books and movies. Rainbow Rowell mentions in an interview that she does not shy away from pop-culture references in her books. This is evident in ‘Attachments’. It is full of 1990’s pop-culture (including references […]

Kindred Spirits by…Rainbow Rowell

Kindred Spirits by…Rainbow Rowell

This ‘book’ is really a short story. The story it’s self is sixty-two pages. The rest is the first chapter of another book by another author. So I’m going to make this review short and sweet.   Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite authors. Although I am not a big short story reader, I wanted to read ‘Kindred Spirits’ because of what I have heard about the storyline. It’s  about  a girl name ‘Elena’ and her experience standing in line waiting for one of the  ‘Star Wars’ movies.  She gets in line  three days in advance and there are only two other people in line. Her mother drops her off but tries throughout the story to talk her out camping in the line overnight.   ‘Kindred Spirits’ follows a premise that I have often found very interesting. Sometimes you meet […]
