Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Image result for hocus pocus

I was tagged by The Orangutan Librarian to complete this tag! Thanks a bunch! :D This amazing tag was created by Katie @ Never Not Reading. I absolutely love this movie! This was my childhood. I try to watch it on a yearly basis, but we don’t have cable anymore and it’s been taken off Netflix, so it’s getting harder to do so, unfortunately. I was hoping to get this up on Halloween but obviously that didn’t happen. Oh well.


Rules:

There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to me, and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.


THE SANDERSON SISTERS

A great trilogy.

I’m going to go with the Captive Prince trilogy by C.S. Pacat. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea – being M/M and having some mature themes – but I absolutely love the character development and the overall plot. I need to reread it in the near future, as well as some short stories the author has come up with since then.

WINIFRED SANDERSON

A book with a truly evil female villain.

I’m trying not to put Harry Potter (I feel like I do that a lot…^^; It’s not my fault it goes with almost anything!). I’ll choose The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Both Mab, the Faerie Queen of Air and Darkness, and Leanansidhe, Harry’s faerie godmother, are pieces of work. They do some messed up shit to my dear, sweet Harry. Don’t trust faeries.

SARAH SANDERSON

A book that uncannily attracts children.

Umm, I’m not too sure with this one. I don’t know what the kids are reading nowadays. I feel like most books with talking animals as main characters are usually fairly popular. So I’ll just go with that instead of a specific book.

MARY SANDERSON

A book that is just plain silly.

I’m having trouble with this one too. Let’s go with Go the Fuck to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. I haven’t actually read this one but I’ve heard it’s hilarious. It’s supposed to be a parody (kinda?) of a bedtime story you would read to your kids, but it’s meant to relate to parents. I just found a video of Samuel L. Jackson reading the book if you’re interested.

MAX

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

I’m actually going to pick Twilight for this one. Vampires and werewolves: cool, right? A good chunk of the characters in the series and the overall plot? Not so much.

DANI

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

I’ll go with Whiskey Sour by J.A. Konrath. I’ve been slowly plugging away at this series and it tells you exactly what serial killers are capable of. It reminds me a lot of Criminal Minds.

BINX

A book series that just won’t die.

I’ll go with the Warriors series by Erin Hunter (haw, so appropriate). I loved reading the books when I was younger, and I’ve still been meaning to read where I left off years ago, but they just won’t stop! There are SO many of them now and I think they’re still going.

ICE

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

I’m actually going to go with Whiskey Sour again because there are two FBI agents in that series that just…aren’t the brightest. They are so dependent on a computer system to tell them what kind of killer they’re looking for that they don’t use common sense. At all. Ever.

THE BLACK FLAME CANDLE

A book or series you wish you could resurrect.

I’ll say the Demonata series by Darren Shan. It wasn’t as popular as Shan’s Cirque Du Freak series, but I thought it was just as good.

HEADLESS BILLY BUTCHERSON

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

I’m coming up blank on this one. I’d probably say a classic because not a lot of people like being forced to read them in school, but they’re not all that bad. I enjoyed Of Mice and Men and To Kill a Mockingbird.

WINIFRED SANDERSON’S SPELL BOOK

A book with a mind of its own.

spell book

I’m going to agree with Katie on this one and say A Game of Thrones. I feel like it’s mostly because the TV show has gone past where the books are. I know the author still had some say along the way, but I also feel that it strayed from what he originally had planned – mostly due to the wants of the fans.

GARRY MARSHALL

A book with a cameo.

I’m actually going to copy what The Orangutan Librarian said for this one and go with some of the characters from mythology – Mab, Titania, Erlking, etc. – but in the Dresden Files, which I briefly mentioned earlier.


And that’s that! This was a good tag. I’m lazy and don’t feel like tagging specific people, so if you like this movie or just thought this was a neat tag, consider yourself tagged! Let me know if you participate so I can see your post!

Happy reading! :)

  2. So here’s what you’re going to do. Next October you are going to buy a physical DVD. *GASP!!!* You can go to Wal-Mart or Target and get Hocus Pocus on the cheap (ours was literally like $5), or order it on Amazon. Then you can watch it whenever you want!

    Thanks for participating! I really enjoyed reading your answers. :)
