Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Untitled2.png

Confession time: I never actually watched Hocus Pocus as a kid. As an adult, I’ve only seen bits and pieces, but I’ve yet to sit down and complete the whole film, which apparently is a damned shame! It’s such a cult classic so I’m bummed that I missed the train but that doesn’t mean I can’t participate in a fun tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Laura @ The Corner of Laura! Check out her take on this tag and her blog!

Rules:

There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to Never Not Reading (tag creator), and maybe the person who tagged you, too. Share the love folks.

The Sanderson Sisters

A great trilogy.

The Graceling Realms remains one of the most well-written and compelling fantasy series I’ve ever had the pleasure of indulging in!

Winifred Sanderson

A book with a truly evil female villain.

Goodreads LinkFull Review

I know the narrative was trying to give her good reasons for her actions, but I still believe Jannoula is a truly evil person from her core, and I hated everything she did, which only means she was a really compelling villain!

Sarah Sanderson

A book that uncannily attracts children.

Goodreads LinkFull Review

I think it can be agreed that plenty of kids find clowns to be weird and terrifying. However, the kids that Georgie entertains as a clown seem to not mind her so much, even in her make-up.

Mary Sanderson

A book that is just plain silly.

I don’t read enough silly books so I’m stretching the definition of the word to mean fun and lively! Which are two descriptors perfect of The Adventure Zone comics!

Max

A book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed.

Goodreads LinkFull Review

I don’t think this book was trying too hard per say, but I think it certainly was trying to strike a more haunting cord a la Stranger Things but it just didn’t hit the mark many times.

Dani

A book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.

28505023

Goodreads Link

This collection of essays tackles issues that face Black Americans every day in a very real and stark way.

Binx

A book series that just won’t die.

7896527

Please…I’m begging you…enough.

Ice

A book with a character that’s dumb as a rock.

23354348

Goodreads Link

I don’t even remember her name but one of the protagonist’s love interest just does a few dumb things and then one very dumb thing that had me face-palming constantly.

The Black Flame Candle

A book or series you wish you could resurrect. 

I would sign away several years of my life if it meant I could get more books with Mahlia, Ocho and Tool!

Headless Billy Butcherson

A book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be.

31625039

Goodreads LinkFull Review

I think a few people called this book mediocre but I found it very cute and light-hearted, which I feel like is getting less common in YA contemporary.

Winifred Sanderson’s Spell Book

A book with a mind of its own.

Goodreads LinkFull Review

I believe Evelyn Hugo as a character got away from Reid a little and was fleshed out so much she could have jumped from the pages.

Garry Marshall

A book with a cameo.

26032825

Goodreads LinkFull Review

I don’t think I mentioned this in my review but characters from The Darkest Part of the Forest actually cameo in this book and I wasn’t told beforehand so that was a really pleasant surprise!


Halloween is today, so this’ll be an out-of-date call out, but since I got specifically called out (and evidentially admitted to my failure as a Halloween cult classic fan), I will be tagging the following wonderful folks:

Jenna @ Bookmark Your Thoughts

Nadine @ Nad’s Book Nook

Jessica @ Endless Chapters

  1. Interesting answers. I must admit that I’ve only read one of those books: Fire by Kristin Kashore and it was so long ago that I don’t remember much about it. Let’s Talk About Love, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and The Cruel Prince are on my TBR though. And I really should give Graceling a try.

    Hope you find the time to watch Hocus Pocus soon!
