hocus pocus book tag

i realized, that i haven’t done a tag in quite some time now. so it’s perfect, that the wonderful katie over @never not reading tagged me in the hocus pocus book tag. she created the tag herself and i am sure, i will have a lot of fun with it! i love the movie so much! thank you katie for tagging me. ❤ if you don’t know her blog, please go and check it out, because katie is awesome! 🙂

1.) the sanderson sisters

a great trilogy:

darkershade

well, it shouldn’t be surprising, that i choose the “shades of magic” trilogy by v.e. schwab. i have talked about my love for these books and especially for kell a lot on my blog. but i do not regret it. it’s an amazing series!

 

2.) winifred sanderson

giphy (14)

a book with a truly evil female villain:

alice

huh, turns out, i haven’t read a lot of books with female villains. but the queen of hearts from “alice’s adventures in wonderland” by lewis caroll counts, right?

 

3.) sarah sanderson

giphy

a book that uncannily attracts children:

pippilongstocking

i am going with germany here, because i know, that all books by astrid lindgren are still very popular in this country. i myself loved all her stories and i loved the tv series even more. pippi longstocking is my favorite, which probably explains, why my cat is named after her 😀

 

4.) mary sanderson

a book that is just plain silly:

hitchhiker

i’m going with silly as in funny here and not with silly as in stupid here. 😀 just to clarify. a book that was so funny and made me laugh so much was “the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” by douglas adams. i love that book and especially the little depressed robot marvin. 😀 ❤

a book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed:

becauseyoulovetohateme

i have to go with this anthology here! “because you love to hate me” had a great concept. booktubers paired with authors to make them write a story about villains. all in all it sounds pretty cool. for me, a frequent booktube watcher, i was really looking forward to it! but i was disappointed, because there were just a few stories that could convince me and the rest was just meh.

a book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is:

autoboyography

i have to go with my recent read “autoboyography” by christina lauren. this book felt so honest to me, because it portrayed the feelings of the protagonists so well. i was really feeling their feelings and it just was so believable how shitty both their lives were regarding their situation. i will always be greatful for this book!

 

7.) binx

a book series that just won’t die:

i don’t have an answer for this, because i haven’t read that many long series yet, to say this.

 

8.) ice

giphy (5)

a book with a character that’s dumb as a rock:

thirteen

i have absolutely nothing more to say about bryce from “thirteen reasons why” by jay asher!

 

9.) the black flame candle

giphy (7)

a book or series you wish you could resurrect:

sixofcrows

is it too early to talk about this? 😀

 

10.) headless billy butcherson

giphy (4)

a book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be:

thefaultinourstars

i hear so many people talking trash about john green’s books and i need to defend them. they are not bad. you may not like them but they are absolutely not bad. they are written beautifully, have some of the most amazing quotes i have ever seen in books and they make you feel something. so please stop saying, that they are bad. maybe you do not like them, BUT THEY ARE NOT BAD!!! (i somehow needed to get this of my chest)

 

11.) winifred sanderson’s spell book

giphy (8)

a book with a mind of its own:

stationeleven

that’s definitely one of my recent reads – “station eleven” by emily st. john mandel. still don’t know, what this book is supposed to tell me… (sorry, guys)

 

12.) garry marshall

giphy (1)

a book with a cameo:

upsideof

this is the only book, that comes to mind. in “the upside of unrequited” by becky albertalli there appear some characters from her first book “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda”. that was pretty cool! 🙂

 

 

that was the hocus pocus book tag! i hope you liked it! 🙂 i am tagging a few people, that were not on katies list, haha 😀

  1. I was going “Oh, I’d use that book for this” like three times and then saw you tagged me.
    Then. THEN. I suddenly didn’t remember what books I was thinking of because life hates me lately.

    I’ll *try* to do this tag but I’ve been saving up a lot of those and.. ugh.
    Maybe I just need to make a mile-long post with all those tags and awards, haha!

  2. Yay, thanks for doing my tag!!!!!! I loved your answers! Especially about John Green. I don’t personally care for his books, but I recognize that they are VERY well-written. I love John as a person, and I know he has a lot of anxiety about people not liking his books, and I hate when he gets unfair criticism, when really people just didn’t enjoy it.

  4. What a fun tag! Thanks for tagging me 🙂
    I completely agree with you about John Green’s books. I’ll admit I’m not the biggest fan of his books (I’ve read three and only really liked one of them), but I think that’s just because I’m not a big fan of books that focus a lot on the prose. I’m more focused on the actual story/plot rather than the language the author uses. His books really are well-written though – just not my cup of tea!
