Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I don’t know if you guys know this but fall, specifically October, is my favorite time of year. I love spooky things. I think I’ve driven Eden and Caitlynn crazy by requesting to go to haunted houses every weekend. I’m also on a big horror film kick right now. One of my favorite Halloween movies is Hocus Pocus so I couldn’t just scroll past this post that I saw on Alex’s Blog

1.) The Sanderson sisters a great trilogy:

The first trilogy that came to mind is the Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. This trilogy was the perfect length and I loved the characters. I wish I would have liked her other series as much.

2.) Winifred Sanderson a book with a truly evil female villain:

Nashira Sargas from The Bone Season. No matter what way you look at her you can’t help but hate her. She is evil incarnate.



3.) Sarah Sanderson a book that uncannily attracts children:

I’m going to say Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children because my students really enjoy that series and the movie. It’s a book I can definitely bond with them over.

4.) Mary Sanderson a book that is just plain silly:

Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham. This was an audiobook that had me laughing the entire time. I really enjoyed the book. You can check out all of my thoughts on it here.

5.) Max a book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed:

I’m going to look at this question more from a character’s perspective. I’m going to say The Field Party series. Sometimes the characters in these book just take themselves a little tooo seriously.

6.) Dani a book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is:

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a poignant and passionate book. It says what needs to be said about the current state of our society as a whole and I really appreciated that. We did a full discussion post on it that you can check out here.


7.) Binx a book series that just won’t die:

This is exactly how I felt about the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. There are just so many of them. I’m not going to lie. I definitely gave up on this series.

8.) Ice a book with a character that’s dumb as a rock:

Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler was filled with characters like this. Even the “intellectual” characters lacked any real depth, common sense, or decency.

9.) The black flame candle a book or series you wish you could resurrect:

So, I just finished Our Dark Duet. I was completely satisfied by the ending. But, now I am missing the world Victoria Schwab created. It was the perfect stopping point. However, a girl can dream.

10.) Headless Billy Butcherson a book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be:

Any of the Bloodlines series. I feel as though these books have been written off by people because of the cringey covers. However, people are missing out because these books are a lot of fun.

11.) Winifred Sanderson’s spell book a book with a mind of its own:

Wink Poppy Midnight. I’m still confused by this book. There were so many aspects of it that were strange and confusing.

12.) Garry Marshall a book with a cameo:

One of my favorite cameos is Magnus Bane in The Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare. He really adds to the book series.

What’s your favorite cameo in a book? I tag you to complete this if you made it this far.

  1. What a fun tag! Hocus Pocus is one of my favorite movies too! I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve watched this movie. It also brings back so many good childhood memories. Definitely going to do this really soon. =)


  2. Haha I totally pressed send way too early! I love Hocus Pocus so much, I’m definitely going to have to give this tag a go! I love it when Magnus and Jace appear in TDA, too. He’s a character that will never get old. I also love it when you realise who Jem is in the Mortal Instruments. She’s so good with little connections like that!
