I was scrolling through my WordPress feed when I saw this tag on Alana’s blog aka The Bookish Chick. I immediately knew that I wanted to do this tag. Hocus Pocus is such a classic movie. I watch it every October without fail. Since Halloween is two days away I thought that this would be a great tag to do.
Without any further adieu, let’s get started!
A great trilogy
This was so much harder than I thought it was going to be. After a lot of contemplation, I choose the Shades of Magic Trilogy by V.E Schwab. The world-building, character development, and prose are just amazing. I can’t wait to finish it within the coming months.
Winifred Sanderson: A book with a truly evil female villain.
I couldn’t choose between Queen Levana and Queen Elara. Both of these queens are truly evil, twisted and cruel. Now that I think about it, they both have similar backstories.
Sarah Sanderson: A book that uncannily attracts children.
I hope kids still read this book or I’m going to feel really old even though I’m only 21.
Mary Sanderson: A book that is just plain silly.
This graphic novel isn’t 100% a comedy but the dialogue between the characters can be really funny at times.
Max: A book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed.
I just finished reading this book for my English class and this was the 1st book that popped into my mind, Sam Spade is the epitome of trying too hard to be cool.
Dani: A book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.
Binx: A book series that just won’t die.
The shadowhunter universe in general. I feel like every time I turn around Cassandra Clare is releasing a new novella or novel.
Ice: A book with a character that’s dumb as a rock.
The main character of this book does something so stupid that the whole plot revolves around her sister trying to stop her from going through with the stupid thing she did.
The Black Flame Candle: A book or series you wish you could resurrect.
I was obsessed with this book series when it first came out. I was completely transfixed by Paris, the characters and the mythology of this book. I absolutely could not put it down. Every time a new book came out I would wait in agony until my library got it in. I want to reread the trilogy and novellas one day.
Headless Billy Butcherson: A book that’s not as bad as people make it out to be.
I finally read this book after it being on my TBR for maybe 2ish years. I loved it and felt like I could relate to Jenny Lawson in some ways. So many people gave 1-2 star reviews for this book. A lot of the comments said that this book was annoying, she was trying to hard to be funny, she or that she didn’t portray mental illness accurately. This book isn’t bad. It’s not the typical deep memoir where people just talk about how depressed they are. Although Jenny’s narration could be a little too much at times, it added to the authenticity of the memoir. It felt real.
Winifred Sanderson’s Spell Book: A book with a mind of its own.
Garry Marshall: A book with a cameo.
Claire Waverly from Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen makes a small cameo in this book.
