Six Degrees of Separation: Vanity Fair to Ella Enchanted

6 degrees

Six Degrees of Separation is a monthly blog event hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavoriteandbest. It’s inspired by the 6 Degrees of Separation, a movie game where you attempt to connect actors in six movies or less. But we do it with books!

This month we’re starting with Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray.

Once again we’re starting with a book I haven’t read! I may have seen the movie many years ago, but if I have I don’t remember it. So this first connection is going to be a little tenuous, but bear with me. Vanity Fair was written by William Makepeace Thackeray, whose name, of course, reminds me of Thackeray Binks from Hocus Pocus! (Is anyone surprised???) Which inspired the all-new book… Continue reading “Six Degrees of Separation: Vanity Fair to Ella Enchanted”

Calendar Girls October: Best Book with Witches

calendar girls october

Weeeeeelllll dang, I probably shouldn’t use Harry Potter two months in a row!


But never fear! I love fantasy and adore witches, so I have many other amazing books I can talk about and recommend to you!


So, for better or for worse, my favorite book with witches is… Continue reading “Calendar Girls October: Best Book with Witches”

Thank You!!!!!

So, life’s tough.

My job is difficult and my boss isn’t helping. Being pregnant royally sucks. I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open like, ALL THE TIME. I have a two-year-old. And just, life in general. It’s hard, man!

But I’ve really been able to stay positive every time I’m here, or on Twitter. You guys are the best. Thank you so much for reading, commenting, sharing, and especially just for being a friend. I just can’t believe all the love I’ve been getting. I passed 300 followers last week!!!! Already! Guys, y’all have really helped me stay in a positive place when I’m not feeling so awesome. Thank you.

An extra special thanks to everyone who read, liked, commented, and, most importantly, MADE a Hocus Pocus Tag! I wasn’t really expecting much to happen with it, I made it more for fun and for the love of Halloween than because I thought it would go anywhere. I’ve just been blown away at how many posts I’ve seen. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Seriously, I can’t express enough my gratitude to you all. Is it too early for me to say I love you guys? Because I totally do. *mwah*

5 Books to Read if You Love Hocus Pocus

I love October. I love Halloween. And guys, I really love Hocus Pocus.

It’s hard to resist a campy movie, and a campy movie about Halloween is right up my ally. The Sanderson Sisters are interesting as far as witches go, and these days its fun to see evil witches. All the characters always make me laugh, and who can resist a musical number? Oh yes, I love Hocus Pocus. My husband is always exasperated when I make him watch it every year.

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about recommending books to read around Halloween. Most of them are creepy or scary, which honestly isn’t really my thing. I don’t like Haunted Houses or creepy spider lawn decorations at Halloween. I like silly pumpkins, witches flying into trees, and some good old-fashioned smiling ghosts. So I thought I would put a list together of books you might like to read if you prefer the silly side of Halloween. Continue reading “5 Books to Read if You Love Hocus Pocus”

Hocus Pocus Book Tag

Because it wouldn’t be Halloween without Hocus Pocus, and I wouldn’t be doing my job right if I wasn’t spreading the Hocus Pocus love, I’ve created my very own blog tag.

Dun dun DUUUUUNNNN!!!!!

I hope you enjoy it! I’ve certainly had fun dreaming it up and creating it.


There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to me, and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.

The Sanderson Sisters

A great trilogy.

It should be a surprise to no one that I’m choosing The Lord of the Rings. I mean, favorite book, obviously favorite trilogy. Do I need to say any more? Continue reading “Hocus Pocus Book Tag”
