Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Happy Halloween, lovelies! ‘Tis time… for another book tag and I am super glad I found the Hocus Pocus book tag on The Wanderlust Reader. What could be more perfect to end October?

THE SANDERSON SISTERS: A GREAT TRILOGY

The Shades of Magic trilogy has everything I look for in a fantasy series. I’m excited to reread it soon!

WINIFRED SANDERSON: A BOOK WITH A TRULY EVIL FEMALE VILLAIN

Queen Levana from the Lunar Chronicles. I thought Fairest would give us some empathy for her but it just made her seem even more psychotic and disturbing.

SARAH SANDERSON: A BOOK THAT UNCANNILY ATTRACTS CHILDREN

Maybe The Hunger Games? For as bleak and intense as it it, it attracts a lot of young fans.

MARY SANDERSON: A BOOK THAT IS JUST PLAIN SILLY

My Lady Jane is charmingly silly in that Princess Bride sort of way. I laughed a lot!

MAX: A BOOK THAT IS TRYING REALLY HARD TO BE COOL, BUT DOESN’T ALWAYS SUCCEED

Royal Bastards- almost everything about this book rubbed me the wrong way and you can tell it’s trying so hard to be an edgy fantasy with its use of language especially.

DANI: A BOOK THAT ISN’T AFRAID TO TELL IT LIKE IT IS

I liked how In Other Lands handled certain situations head-on; even though it was a hilarious fantasy it still had such real things to say about relationships and growing up and prejudice.

BINX: A BOOK SERIES THAT JUST WON’T DIE

The Shadowhunter books by Cassie Clare. So many spinoffs and prequels and sequels that it makes my head spin.

ICE: A BOOK WITH A CHARACTER THAT’S DUMB AS A ROCK

Unconventional choice but I’m going with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- specifically Ronald Bilius Weasley from the Harry Potter series, as in emotionally dumb as a rock. He doesn’t realize ANYTHING about his feelings for Hermione until too late, he doesn’t seem to realize that Harry doesn’t want all that attention, etc etc.

THE BLACK FLAME CANDLEA BOOK OR SERIES YOU WISH YOU COULD RESURRECT

The Thursday Next series. Book 8 seems to be stuck in perpetual limbo…

HEADLESS BILLY BUTCHERSON: A BOOK THAT’S NOT SO BAD AS PEOPLE MAKE IT OUT TO BE

Stitching Snow. A lot of people look at it as a Lunar Chronicles rip off but I really enjoyed it and thought the similarities were cursory at best. It was definitely its own adventure.

WINIFRED SANDERSON’S SPELL BOOK: A BOOK WITH A MIND OF ITS OWN
book
The Outlander series- I could never have imagined in a million years the paths the characters would take and where the story would end up from Book 1 to 8- it really does seem to be a series with a mind of its own!

GARRY MARSHALL: A BOOK WITH A CAMEO

Waistcoats & Weaponry- I love spotting familiar characters from the adult series.


I tag anyone who’d like to participate! Hocus Pocus is a year round movie for me 😉

    I thought for sure you had made this, the theme is just too perfect! I loved Stitching Snow too, it was definitely dark than Cinder and I liked that a lot! I miss that book, I kind of want to reread it now.

    AND I FEEL YOU ABOUT ROYAL BASTARDS. It was trying soo hard to have cool lingo but it was a fantasy book? It wasn’t my fave of anything.
