    This ain?t it, folks. I really did not enjoy this book. While the novelization of the movie was fine for the most part, the sequel destroyed my reading experience. (Most of my rating/review is based on the sequel as the first portion of the story is the same as the film. I gave it...

    ARC provided by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Rating 2.5 Stars First off I have to say Hocus Pocus was my childhood so I'm going to be a bit biased in my review instead of judging it like any other book. I just can't help it when you really expected som...

    3.75/5 Part 1 (the retelling of Hocus Pocus) - 5 perfect stars Part 2 (the all new sequel) - 2.5 fanfictiony stars Overall this was a fun waste of time. If you love Hocus Pocus, you should enjoy this. I recommend reading it closer to Halloween though. :) ...

    You know those TV shows that continue past their prime and loyal viewers want to pretend the last few seasons never happened because it destroys the magic of the earlier seasons? That's what this book is. I love Hocus Pocus and watch it every Halloween, but this book almost ruins it fo...

    This really hurts to include on my DNF shelf but I refuse to let my view of the Hocus Pocus movie be tainted. The retelling was a blast to read but the new sequel was way too fan fiction-y for my liking. HOWEVER I may try to do a reread of this in October, it's a big maybe thoug...

    I literally squealed with delight when I saw this had been made into a book. Hocus Pocus is my favourite movie of ALL time and to see it in book form is a dream come true! And I?m glad to say it did not disappoint, it was absolutely perfect in fact! It was like I was seeing the movie...

    Hocus Pocus 3.5 ? Everything is going wrong again when Max and Allisons (stupid) daughter Poppy summons the sisters (trying to be brave) and ends up with her parents in hell and all of salem at the sisters wicked command. Elizabeth though the misunderstood sanderson sister is here...

    Being a 90?s kid, the story of Hocus Pocus has been a favorite of mine. I completely devoured this book from beginning to end and I loved the retelling of the original film. It gave readers a more in depth detail of the original story and first person point of view. And I enjoyed the...

    Overall 2.5 stars This was my most anticipated read for October and of 2018! Part 1: 4 ?'s The first part did not disappoint. It was pretty much like the movie. Part 2: 2 ?'s The sequel on the other hand was a disaster for me. The story read like a middle grade book an...

    ****REVIEW HAS BEEN POSTED ON BOTH BLOGSPOT & WORDPRESS *** Find both links here : www.linktr.ee/bookishwiccan I can't even handle this book, and I ESPECIALLY cannot handle the ending. It's just a bunch of hocus pocus, and I absolutely adored it. Stay tuned into my bl...

    I legit got a little woozy from the shock of finding out about this novel. I never thought there would be an actual book on my favorite movie ever and a sequel to go with it. It also comes out less than a week after my birthday so happy birthday to me but July has never felt so far awa...

    The novelization of Hocus Pocus is exactly what you?d expect, no surprise there. The sequel is.....cute. It?s a trio of characters again, it?s the Dennison kid trying to impress their crush again, it?s an animal transformation again. Much of it was recycled into newer forms,...

    Hocus Pocus is one of my all-time favorite movies and I was equal parts excited to revisit the beloved characters with a continuation 25 years later and terrified that it wouldn't live up to the nostalgia I feel for the film. As such I went into this with very low expectations and over...

    2.5 stars Sigh. I wanted to love this so much. I've always loved the the Hocus Pocus movie and was excited to be back in that world with a new familiar faces. I didn't really pay attention to the blurb heading in so I didn't realize the first like 1/3 of the novel would basically b...

    Like pretty much everyone who read this book, I'm a big fan of Hocus Pocus, so I was really sad when I was having trouble getting through it. Even though I love the movie, I wasn't down to read the whole novelization of it. That made it a little boring for me considering I know the sto...

    This is one of the few occasions that I?m hoping the movie is far better than the book. This book didn?t really have a lot of substance. It didn?t have amazing moments, there were plenty of potential ones but every time the writing was so lacklustre that everything in the s...

    3.5 (4 For Original, 3 For Sequel) And I'm rounding down because the sequel is 3/5 of the book, so yeah. So much for finishing this by Halloween! I loved the film-to-movie adaptation of Hocus Pocus. I could really envision the characters and events. There were very few things fro...

    I really enjoyed both stories. Love the atmosphere that was created. Can?t wait to re read it next October for Halloween ? ...

    3.5 stars ...

    This is a low 3.5 stars for me. The retelling of the movie was very accurate, but it just didn?t have the same feel as the movie. There was a little bit of extra information which was fun. The sequel, in my opinion, felt like it was trying too hard. Too many things from today (inst...

    Part one was wonderful! It was the complete retelling of the 90s Classic movie; Hocus Pocus. Upon reading part one, I could picture the exact scenes in my mind. Part two...sounded more like fan fiction. It left me disappointed. ...

    This was two books in one. The first was a novelization of the 1993 film Hocus Pocus. The second is a bit longer, taking place 25 years after the first film was set and following Max and Allison's 17 year old daughter, Poppy. The novelization of the film is exactly what it says on t...

    Let?s Hocus Pocus again! It was so much fun to experience Hocus Pocus again. Truly one of my favorite Halloween movies that brings back wonderful memories. Loved that the first original story started this book off. The new sequel brings back Dennison family 25 years later. The thr...

    You guys are kidding me!!! This is not going to be a book? Wait it is? In that case... AHHHH!!!!! That was a sequel of delight!!!! Hocus Pocus is one of my all time favorite movies!! The Sanderson sisters crack me up! Nani i had guess we had better have that heart attack together ...

    A mess, a mess, a mess! Oh my. How I've longed for and dreaded this day. "Hocus Pocus" is such a lightning-in-a-bottle film. Like other cult movies, it was panned on release but managed to gain a wide base of loyal fans...including me! I can't think of another film that manag...

    ARC provided by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Rating 2.5 Stars First off I have to say Hocus Pocus was my childhood so I'm going to be a bit biased in my review instead of judging it like any other book. I just can't help it when you really expected som...

    3.75/5 Part 1 (the retelling of Hocus Pocus) - 5 perfect stars Part 2 (the all new sequel) - 2.5 fanfictiony stars Overall this was a fun waste of time. If you love Hocus Pocus, you should enjoy this. I recommend reading it closer to Halloween though. :) ...

    You know those TV shows that continue past their prime and loyal viewers want to pretend the last few seasons never happened because it destroys the magic of the earlier seasons? That's what this book is. I love Hocus Pocus and watch it every Halloween, but this book almost ruins it fo...

    This really hurts to include on my DNF shelf but I refuse to let my view of the Hocus Pocus movie be tainted. The retelling was a blast to read but the new sequel was way too fan fiction-y for my liking. HOWEVER I may try to do a reread of this in October, it's a big maybe thoug...

    Overall 2.5 stars This was my most anticipated read for October and of 2018! Part 1: 4 ?'s The first part did not disappoint. It was pretty much like the movie. Part 2: 2 ?'s The sequel on the other hand was a disaster for me. The story read like a middle grade book an...

    ****REVIEW HAS BEEN POSTED ON BOTH BLOGSPOT & WORDPRESS *** Find both links here : www.linktr.ee/bookishwiccan I can't even handle this book, and I ESPECIALLY cannot handle the ending. It's just a bunch of hocus pocus, and I absolutely adored it. Stay tuned into my bl...

    I legit got a little woozy from the shock of finding out about this novel. I never thought there would be an actual book on my favorite movie ever and a sequel to go with it. It also comes out less than a week after my birthday so happy birthday to me but July has never felt so far awa...

    The novelization of Hocus Pocus is exactly what you?d expect, no surprise there. The sequel is.....cute. It?s a trio of characters again, it?s the Dennison kid trying to impress their crush again, it?s an animal transformation again. Much of it was recycled into newer forms,...

    Hocus Pocus is one of my all-time favorite movies and I was equal parts excited to revisit the beloved characters with a continuation 25 years later and terrified that it wouldn't live up to the nostalgia I feel for the film. As such I went into this with very low expectations and over...

    RTC ...

    2.5 stars Sigh. I wanted to love this so much. I've always loved the the Hocus Pocus movie and was excited to be back in that world with a new familiar faces. I didn't really pay attention to the blurb heading in so I didn't realize the first like 1/3 of the novel would basically b...

    Like pretty much everyone who read this book, I'm a big fan of Hocus Pocus, so I was really sad when I was having trouble getting through it. Even though I love the movie, I wasn't down to read the whole novelization of it. That made it a little boring for me considering I know the sto...

    This is one of the few occasions that I?m hoping the movie is far better than the book. This book didn?t really have a lot of substance. It didn?t have amazing moments, there were plenty of potential ones but every time the writing was so lacklustre that everything in the s...

    3.5 (4 For Original, 3 For Sequel) And I'm rounding down because the sequel is 3/5 of the book, so yeah. So much for finishing this by Halloween! I loved the film-to-movie adaptation of Hocus Pocus. I could really envision the characters and events. There were very few things fro...

    I really enjoyed both stories. Love the atmosphere that was created. Can?t wait to re read it next October for Halloween ? ...

    3.5 stars ...

    This is a low 3.5 stars for me. The retelling of the movie was very accurate, but it just didn?t have the same feel as the movie. There was a little bit of extra information which was fun. The sequel, in my opinion, felt like it was trying too hard. Too many things from today (inst...

    Part one was wonderful! It was the complete retelling of the 90s Classic movie; Hocus Pocus. Upon reading part one, I could picture the exact scenes in my mind. Part two...sounded more like fan fiction. It left me disappointed. ...

    This was two books in one. The first was a novelization of the 1993 film Hocus Pocus. The second is a bit longer, taking place 25 years after the first film was set and following Max and Allison's 17 year old daughter, Poppy. The novelization of the film is exactly what it says on t...

    Let?s Hocus Pocus again! It was so much fun to experience Hocus Pocus again. Truly one of my favorite Halloween movies that brings back wonderful memories. Loved that the first original story started this book off. The new sequel brings back Dennison family 25 years later. The thr...

    I really wanted to love this - Hocus Pocus is one of my favorite Halloween movies - I grew up with it and I love it so much. And I really did enjoy the retelling of it for the most part. It was almost word for word with the movie, but I was ok with that for nostalgia purposes. What I d...

    Part one was wonderful! It was the complete retelling of the 90s Classic movie; Hocus Pocus. Upon reading part one, I could picture the exact scenes in my mind. Part two...sounded more like fan fiction. It left me disappointed. ...

    This was two books in one. The first was a novelization of the 1993 film Hocus Pocus. The second is a bit longer, taking place 25 years after the first film was set and following Max and Allison's 17 year old daughter, Poppy. The novelization of the film is exactly what it says on t...

    You know those TV shows that continue past their prime and loyal viewers want to pretend the last few seasons never happened because it destroys the magic of the earlier seasons? That's what this book is. I love Hocus Pocus and watch it every Halloween, but this book almost ruins it fo...

    This really hurts to include on my DNF shelf but I refuse to let my view of the Hocus Pocus movie be tainted. The retelling was a blast to read but the new sequel was way too fan fiction-y for my liking. HOWEVER I may try to do a reread of this in October, it's a big maybe thoug...

    I literally squealed with delight when I saw this had been made into a book. Hocus Pocus is my favourite movie of ALL time and to see it in book form is a dream come true! And I?m glad to say it did not disappoint, it was absolutely perfect in fact! It was like I was seeing the movie...

    Being a 90?s kid, the story of Hocus Pocus has been a favorite of mine. I completely devoured this book from beginning to end and I loved the retelling of the original film. It gave readers a more in depth detail of the original story and first person point of view. And I enjoyed the...

    Overall 2.5 stars This was my most anticipated read for October and of 2018! Part 1: 4 ?'s The first part did not disappoint. It was pretty much like the movie. Part 2: 2 ?'s The sequel on the other hand was a disaster for me. The story read like a middle grade book an...

    ****REVIEW HAS BEEN POSTED ON BOTH BLOGSPOT & WORDPRESS *** Find both links here : www.linktr.ee/bookishwiccan I can't even handle this book, and I ESPECIALLY cannot handle the ending. It's just a bunch of hocus pocus, and I absolutely adored it. Stay tuned into my bl...

    I legit got a little woozy from the shock of finding out about this novel. I never thought there would be an actual book on my favorite movie ever and a sequel to go with it. It also comes out less than a week after my birthday so happy birthday to me but July has never felt so far awa...

    The novelization of Hocus Pocus is exactly what you?d expect, no surprise there. The sequel is.....cute. It?s a trio of characters again, it?s the Dennison kid trying to impress their crush again, it?s an animal transformation again. Much of it was recycled into newer forms,...

    Hocus Pocus is one of my all-time favorite movies and I was equal parts excited to revisit the beloved characters with a continuation 25 years later and terrified that it wouldn't live up to the nostalgia I feel for the film. As such I went into this with very low expectations and over...

    Like pretty much everyone who read this book, I'm a big fan of Hocus Pocus, so I was really sad when I was having trouble getting through it. Even though I love the movie, I wasn't down to read the whole novelization of it. That made it a little boring for me considering I know the sto...

    This is one of the few occasions that I?m hoping the movie is far better than the book. This book didn?t really have a lot of substance. It didn?t have amazing moments, there were plenty of potential ones but every time the writing was so lacklustre that everything in the s...

    3.5 (4 For Original, 3 For Sequel) And I'm rounding down because the sequel is 3/5 of the book, so yeah. So much for finishing this by Halloween! I loved the film-to-movie adaptation of Hocus Pocus. I could really envision the characters and events. There were very few things fro...

    I really enjoyed both stories. Love the atmosphere that was created. Can?t wait to re read it next October for Halloween ? ...

    3.5 stars ...

    This is a low 3.5 stars for me. The retelling of the movie was very accurate, but it just didn?t have the same feel as the movie. There was a little bit of extra information which was fun. The sequel, in my opinion, felt like it was trying too hard. Too many things from today (inst...
