Hocus Pocus Book Tag

I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched Hocus Pocus. Okay, so hear me out. Although I grew up in America, I did not grow up in the American culture. So, I’ve never watched timeless movies like Princess Bride and Hocus Pocus. (Okay, I have watched Princess Bride, but only recently). I grew up without a TV, and my family never went to the movie theatres because there weren’t any nearby, which is why I had to turn to books for entertainment.

I was tagged by the lovely Laura over at The Book Corps. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love!

Unless you’re Professor Umbridge. Then you can burn for all I care. I’m also not a big fan of Voldemort, mainly because he (in my opinion) was pretty bland compared to the rest of the characters.

Sometimes I am more interested in the villain than the protagonist in the story. Take, for example, the trickster god Loki (who is on this list). Between Thor and Loki, I’d rather learn more about the “villain”. He just seems much more interesting than Thor (sorry, dude. You’re still really cool). There’s something about a person who doesn’t have many morals that makes them rather intriguing. I’m not saying that they’re good people, but they are interesting to watch/read about.
