1. THE SANDERSON SISTERS- A GREAT TRILOGY
My favourite completed trilogy is Spellchasers by Lari Don, which are MG shapeshifter fantasies set in Scotland, with a really fabulous group of main characters, a unique idea executed well and an arc over the 3 books but also an individual plot for each instalment.
2. WINIFRED SANDERSON- A BOOK WITH A TRULY AWFUL FEMALE VILLAIN
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has two awful female villains in very prominent roles; Dolores Umbridge and Bellatrix Lestrange, who are equally evil in a polar opposite way.
3. SARAH SANDERSON- A BOOK THAT UNCANNILY ATTRACTS CHILDREN
I’m really unsure of this question. The Gruffalo seems to be evergreen, as the young children I know absolutely adore it, and I enjoyed it years ago.
4. MARY SANDERSON- A BOOK THAT IS JUST PLAIN SILLY
I again struggled with this one. Most funny books I read have some sort of more serious topic in them as well, for example bullying in Geek Girl or Alzheimer’s/dementia in Who Let the Gods Out. I think I’ll say Lobsters for this!
5. MAX-A BOOK THAT IS TRYING REALLY HARD TO BE COOL BUT DOESN’T ALWAYS SUCCEED
I’m not going to say any specific book here, as a few do it, but since I started blogging books where blogs just blow up in stats overnight. The only time I found it realistic was in one of my favourite books of last year Being Miss Nobody by Tamsin Winter, where Rosalind is blogging about her school and names it, so it does make sense people from the school would fins and read it.
6. DANI- A BOOK THAT ISN’T AFRAID TO TELL IT HOW IT IS
I think Holly Bourne’s writing style is very open and honest; I always feel like I really do know all of her prontagonists after I finish.
7. BINX-A BOOK SERIES THAT JUST WON’T DIE
I love series, the longer the better! The longest one I can think of is the Babysitters Club by Ann m Martin which must have at least 300 or so counting all the offshoots by my maths. (Which I’m terrible at, so don’t judge me if I’m totally wrong please 😂)
8. ICE- A BOOK WITH A CHARACTER AS DUMB AS A ROCK
Pass! I honestly think of a character I’d describe like that. A character’s intelligence doesn’t really play a part in how I feel about them, and all the baddies I dislike enough to be so horribleabout are usually evil geniuses.
9. THE BLACK FLAME/CANDLE- A SERIES YOU WISH YOU COULD RESURRECT
Either Geek Girl or Adventure Island I think.
10. HEADLESS BILLY BUTCHERSON- A BOOK THAT ISN’T AS BAD AS IT’S MADE OUT TO BE
WHY ARE ALL THE QUESTIONS SO HARD? 😭. I can’t recall any books I especially adore having any sort of mass criticism, if I’m honest.
11. WINIFRED SANDERSON’S SPELL BOOK- A BOOK WITH A MIND OF IT’S OWN
I’m presuming this to mean a unique book, and for this I’m going to say the Beetle Boy books by M.G Leonard. The concept (boy finds Beetle, befriends it, has amazing adventure and saves his father with new beetle and human friends) sounds a bit bizarre on paper, but I love them a lot.
12. GARRY MARSHALL- A BOOK WITH A CAMEO
Jake, one of my favourites from the Chocolate Box Girls series, makes an appearance in Cathy Cassidy’s latest book Love from Lexie, and I’m almost certain he’ll be popping up throughout the series.
Do you love Hocus Pocus? Who’s your favourite character? Have you read any of the books I’ve chosen?
