I love this book it really treasured my eye as soon as I saw it. The book however, is a little different then the movie itself, but how they changed it is awesome! I do recommend you reading this!
Finally got around to watching the new Hocus Pocus and it was really cute! Might even like it better than the original (although I just watched that for the first time a few weeks ago so it‘s not like I grew up loving that movie). I also loved how they changed the Disney castle in the opening! I‘m such a dork and thought that was really cool 🤣! #scarathlon2022 #teamslaughter
Watched Hocus Pocus 2 with my husband, our bunny, & my mother-in-law this afternoon.
I thought the energy was a bit off & tamped down at first but it picked up speed by the end. It felt wrong that my favorite character wasn‘t a powerful woman...but oh well. Mayor Traske for President 2024!
The overall message is about sisterhood & the redistribution of power, which feels right. AND, may we all endeavor to remember: books are magic.
Check out my new notebook I'm going to be using for my #Scarathlon2022 planning.
I always use my excel tracker and a notebook to keep track of my challenges and readathons during Scarathlon. This year I decided to get festive with it. 🧙♀️🧹
Go #TeamSlaughter! @Clwojick
This was not my favorite despite wanting it to be. Second part had too much teenage angst and not enough witches. I hope the second movie has a different plot line.
I love all the things in my #basicwitchswap package from @BeeMagical
I am honoured to be one of your first swaps! You are already a pro at it. I am going to enjoy all of these books! I love the magnet and the herb journal!
@sprainedbrain @mklong for organizing 🧙
I was disappointed in both stories. I was hoping for more backstory on the Sanderson sisters in the first book but it was mostly identical to the movie. The sequel was okay but I found it said the same thing over and over but in different ways. I found myself skimming past the rambling to get to the important parts of the plot.
It's on WITCHES! #abookthatisalsoamovie

It's probably a good thing we didn't have kids, because I totally would have traumatized them by using this song as their lullaby. I could not find my copy of this book, but I love reading the novelization of the movie... the sequel, not so much.
I'll be posting October's prompts soon!
Too young for me. And too much in the sequel remind us of the original. And a bit too unbelievable for a story about witches? This Scooby gang would‘ve been gobbled up by those witches if it weren‘t for that meddling plot twist! I give it a meh.
Shocktober Film # 19: Hocus Pocus
Yesterday evening's trip to see family meant cuddles with my niece and a family friendly movie. I only saw this for the first time maybe 2 years ago but it's cute and I see why it's such a Halloween favorite.
+1 #scarathlon2020 #teamharkness @staycurious
Full disclosure- I only re-read the first book in this duo bc the sequel is just okay. But I do enjoy this novelization bc it fleshes out the characters a bit more and makes Max less of a yabbos chasing idiot who actually likes Alison for her brains and her looks. Plus more of the Sanderson Sisters!!
#Scarathlon2020 #TeamHarkness @StayCurious 26pts (for taking place on Halloween!)
I have always loved the movie and I was excited to read the first part. I was happy to see it started very true to the movie. The second part was good as well. Lots of reviews saying it was like fan fiction but I liked it and didn‘t mind. I love the characters and it was the same premise with a predictable outcome. The ending left the door open for another story. I wouldn‘t be opposed! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Alright I have some readathons ending soon so my points will look wowzers next week I bet once I add up and I want to play the new game hard tomorrow while I‘m bored in my work meeting tomorrow. I‘ve been reading hard and all that! #teamharkness #scarathlon2020 @StayCurious
This is my overall total.
Got to introduce my niece to best movie of all time... Hocus Pocus!!
