When Halloween comes around, you get the costumes, the candy, and…the Halloween movies! My dad got me hooked on Hocus Pocus early as a child, and I would watch this repeatedly during the month of October…and, well, before and after it, too. I loved me some Sanderson Sisters creating drama and Max and his girl were kind of my ship before I knew there was such thing a ship? ANYWAY, when I was tagged by the wonderful Anatomy of a Book Thief, of course, I freaked out and knew I had to do this pronto. If you haven’t followed Anatomy of a Book Thief yet, please, please do! She has fantastic reviews, fantastic bookish content, and she’s really nice too! 😀 Check her out here, and let’s get to the witchy goodness!

The Sanderson Sisters – A Great Trilogy
Thank you, Copy and Paste, for allowing me to figure out how to include the gifs. This is the first for me and the blog, so of course, we shall have a moment of celebrations, because I kept thinking, wow, this tag was made so much better with them and my answers would be quite boring without them. XD ANYWAY, let’s just talk about my choice?
His Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin LaFevers
Okay, apparently I don’t read too many trilogies?? I looked through all of my favorites shelf, and apparently a lot of the series I love go with four books. TLC, The Big Empty series, etc. are all four books. And then you have the duologies or books that are going on for an undecided amount of time with the third book not being out yet. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THIS. However, His Fair Assassin holds one of my favorite books ever as part of it, and it showcases fierce females – just like the Sanderson Sisters.
Winifred Sanderson – A book with a truly evil female villain
Levana from The Lunar Chronicles
Evil moon queen with magical powers…huh, I could see her and Winifred dueting on “I Put a Spell on You.” Love it.
Sarah Sanderson – A book that uncannily attracts children
Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
I don’t even know what to do with this prompt, lol. Um, one of the first books that really caught my attention as a child and dragged me into the world of YA truly was Percy Jackson. And I noticed now that it got a lot of kids into reading as well, so we’ll go with that.
Mary Sanderson – A book that’s just plain silly
My Fair Godmother series by Janette Rallison
I couldn’t figure if they meant silly in bad or silly in a good way, so I went with silly in a good way and I picked the series that will always make me laugh. This series has me in stitches every time I pick it up, and I pick it up anytime I need a laugh or just to be happy. It has adorable ships, fantastic fairytale elements, and some major funnies. SO SO SO recommend.
Max – A book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
I really loved the concept of this book – contemporary Perkins meets 80s slasher fic, but instead, to me, this book just seemed like it was trying way too hard. The items that were meant to be scary or suspenseful just fell so very, very flat and just ended up being funny?
Dani – A book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm, I don’t know? This prompt just confused me. I’m sure there is some epic book that makes a fierce, powerful statement but I got nothing?
Binx – A book series that just won’t die
I’m stealing Book Thief’s answers here, and going with the Shadowhunters series. Seriously, just more books keep popping out. I don’t mind it, but seriouslyyyyyyyyyyyy, so many. XD
Ice – A book with a character that’s dumb as a rock
Echo from Bad Girl Gone
Okay, the girl had some issues. Like, she wakes up in a strange place with a random person hiding under her bed and instead of demanding to find out what is going on or where she is, once someone tells no, go back to your room, she’s like, kk, I’ll go back and go to sleep or something? I don’t even know. She had some major struggles in just a very short amount of time.
The Black Flame Candle – A book or series you wish you could resurrect
Dark House series by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Okay, this series was creepy as shitttttttttttttt, but I loveddddddd it. I was so fascinated by it – and absolutely hated myself for it, but I don’t think I devoured anything so fast in a long time. I’m pretty sure that the series was killed off by lack of demand since I haven’t seen anything for it in a long, long time, but it ended in a pretty big cliffhanger, and I just want to know what is going to happen. *forever crying*
Headless Billy Butcherson – A book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich
I’m so in the minority of really enjoying this book. Yes, it had some major issues, but I really enjoyed it overall.
Winifred Sanderson’s Spell Book – A book with a mind of it’s own
Warcross by Marie Lu
I thought the book was going one way, but it ended up going a way other way much to my pleasant surprise.
Garry Marshall – A book with a cameo
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I didn’t understand a single cameo, but hopefully when I get to binge reading the Grisha trio, I can finally understand it?
I saw quite a few people do it literally all in the same day, so I’m not quite sure who has done it and who hasn’t, so feel free to tag yourself if you’re feeling it or if you love Hocus Pocus like me!
