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.
Part 2/3 #basicwitchswap
🤩🤩🤩 I‘m speechless! So many wonderful goodies! I finally have a Sanderson sister funko! And the crystals are so beautiful! I have been eyeing that Halloween oracle set for a while, but would have never bought it for myself...thank you @KatieDid927 👏🏼👻 for all the wonderful gifts!
And thank you to @Meaw_catlady and @sprainedbrain for organizing!
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!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
#scaryscavengerhunt: witches and about Halloween
Quite a few of these aren't on my usual watch list but I'm going to see if I can add some in this year!
Thanks for this @GypsyKat sometimes I forget how many great Halloween movies are out there
Using Rocky Horror for the first free space. It's not Halloween until I see Tim Curry in a corset 😂

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. 🤷🏻♀️
#scarathlon #teamstoker - 6pts (current total 48)
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 🤯

Not book related and I don‘t even want to think about how much dry shampoo is in my hair but I had to share my new Lizzo/Hocus Pocus shirt and coordinating mug from the awesome @Gissy last year. Happy Friday friends!
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
When I saw that today‘s prompt for the #chillingphotochallenge was #spell this t-shirt immediately came to my mind. It‘s the incantation the Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus recite in the beginning of the movie and I adore it 😊 I wear this thing to death in October. #teamslaughter #scarathlon @Clwojick
