Hocus Pocus and The All-New Sequel
Hocus Pocus and The All-New Sequel | A. W. Jantha
Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens. Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity. Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison's seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don't quite go as planned, it's a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches' latest death-defying scheme.

I found this cheap last month and thought it would be a good Halloween read.

The movie is so much better and the sequel was just okay.

Fast, easy read that I probably would have loved more when I was younger.

Jillylovesbooks I hear they are doing a sequel to the movie. I wonder if it will be based on this book? 2w
Addison_Reads @Jillylovesbooks I wasn't aware of a movie sequel. Truthfully, the story would probably work better as a movie than it did in written form. 2w

Omg... how I loved this book! Hocus Pocus is one of my all-time favorite movies and this book lived up to it all in my opinion. There is a surprising cliffhanger at the end so I am keeping my fingers crossed that there is another book in the works!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Technically not book related. I know a lot of us are Hocus Pocus fans and also Lizzo fans, so go check out this video parody of “Truth Hurts.”

All the nostalgia in the world sadly couldn‘t save this one for me. I think I‘m content to stick to my beloved movie version, I‘m bailing a few chapters in.

Maybe I‘ll try again another time.

One more book of my TBR pile. This one was really cute. The sequel was defiantly different. Some parts were a little over the top but all in all a good read. *spoiler*................................................................................... it does leave off on a cliffhanger that you don‘t really see coming and curious to see if there will be a third to follow up.

This was a reread for me, hence the recycled photo. I listened to the audio book this time around. Still stand by my original rating of 4/4.5🌟 To revisit my original full review, click the link below:

I really wanted to love this, but I just thought it was ok. The first part is basically just a novelization of the movie with a little more background information thrown in and it sets up for the sequel. I felt like some of the charm of the movie was missing here without some of the jokes that made the movie so fun. As far as the sequel goes... I just couldn‘t get into it.

I didn‘t like this unfortunately. I liked that they gave us more in 1693, but once the Sisters came back in 1993, I skipped to part 2. And then I really didn‘t enjoy the story until the last 50 pages.

It did not enhance my Hocus Pocus experience and I would have survived never reading this book. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I loved the first half of this book, which was a written version of the movie. The second half was the sequel, and as sequels go it wasn‘t bad. A very similar plot to the original, but with a few modern touches. I enjoyed it because I could picture parts of it like the movie, but on its own it‘s not great. For nostalgic purposes though, it was a fun read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thackeray Binx is another iconic movie #blackcat! I think he may be my favorite character in Hocus Pocus. Anyone else thought his name was Zachary for all of childhood? Didn‘t learn his real name until years later when I saw it on IMBD and my mind was blown 🤯

Ok and this brings me to today. I finally was able to read Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel which I wanted to pick up last year but life happened. Also I watched Haunt which turned out to be a pretty decent scary movie. I believe my total for today would be 6. Again if I‘m wrong please correct me 👻 @Clwojick #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter

Clwojick 5 for a book about halloween, 1 for the movie, and 1 for the participation/post. 7 points 🙌 2mo

When I saw that today‘s prompt for the #chillingphotochallenge was #spell this t-shirt immediately came to my mind.
