Hocus Pocus Book Tag!

Hocus Pocus.png

Hey everyone!  Today, I’ve got a super fun tag to do.  With Halloween so close, I thought it would be the perfect time to do the Hocus Pocus book tag!  The tag was created by Katie at Never Not Reading, and I was tagged by Danielle over at The Introverted Book Nerd.  Thank you so much for tagging me!!  I love Halloween, and like many, Hocus Pocus is a Halloween classic, and a movie I have to watch every October.

Alright, let’s get started!


There are no rules, but it would be nice to link back to Katie and whoever tagged you!

The Sanderson Sisters

A Great Trilogy


I’m going to have to go with the Angel Eyes trilogy by Shannon Dittemore!  This series is so good, and it’s so underrated.  I wish more people would read it!

Winifred Sanderson

A Book With a Truly Evil Female Villain


Miss Trunchbull from Matilda is my go-to girl when it comes to evil female villains.  She’s so controlling and scary!

Sarah Sanderson

A Book that Uncannily Attracts Children


When I was a little kid, the Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park attracted me every single time.  I just couldn’t get enough of those books back in the day.

Mary Sanderson

A Book that is Just Plain Silly


I had trouble thinking of one for this one. I know I’ve read silly books before, but I just can’t think of many right now. I recently read There’s a Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone to my nieces and nephew, though, and it’s super cute and super silly, and they loved it!


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


I’m going to go with Private by Kate Brian.  I admit, I’ve only read the first book in the series, so maybe it gets better.  That being said, I read it, and it wasn’t terrible, but I felt like it was just trying a bit too hard to be gossipy, and cool.


A Book That Isn’t Afraid to Tell It Like It Is


For this one, I have to go with Bunheads by Sophie Flack.  It’s written by a former dancer of NYCB, and it’s such a realistic portrayal of the dance world.  Dance definitely has its drama, but not in the way that most books and television make you think.  This book is so authentic, and it’s one of my favorites!


A Book Series that Just Won’t Die


Nancy Drew immediately came into my head for this one!  It’s been around for over 85 years, and new books are still being published.  Honestly though, I’m super glad this series won’t die, because I love everything Nancy Drew-related!


A Book with a Character that’s Dumb as a Rock


Y’all, I thought long and hard for this one, and I just cannot think of a dumb character right now!  I know there’s plenty that I’ve read, but for now, I can think of none.

The Black Flame Candle

A Book or Series You Wish You Could Resurrect


I would love to see more in the Dreamhouse Kings series by Robert Liparulo.  This series was one of my favorites back in high school, and the author always said he was going to make a spin-off/continuation of the original series, but it’s been seven years since the last book was released, and he still hasn’t yet.  I just keep waiting for more…

Headless Billy Butcherson

A Book That’s Not as Bad as People Make it Out to Be


I’m going to have to go with Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.  This book series gets so much hate, and it’s really uncalled for. I think it’s fun and entertaining, and I’ve read way, wayyy worse that doesn’t even get half the amount of hate that Twilight does.

Winifred Sanderson’s Spell Book

A Book with a Mind of its Own


I think the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling fits this category so well.  What started off as just a fun, magical, children’s book,  has grown and evolved into so much more!  I still need to finish this series.

Garry Marshall

A Book with a Cameo


Any Sarah Dessen book could fit this category.  I love how so many of her books feature cameos of characters from her past books.  It always makes me so excited to read her new ones and see an old character.  It’s like running into an old friend!

There you have it!  I had so much fun doing this tag.  If you’re reading this, and you want to do it, I tag you!

Thanks for reading and Happy (almost) Halloween!
