When I was a kid, it was an unsaid tradition to watch Hocus Pocus around Halloween to get in the spooky spirit. Thankfully it was always playing on TV on one station or another.
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and while I don’t usually watch Halloween movies (I mean sure, I watched Halloweentown and subsequent movies but they never really stuck with me). But it’s hard not to love Hocus Pocus.
I blame the music 😉
So when Disney Book Groups offered the chance to show off the new novel + sequel, of COURSE I said yes!
What does that mean for y’all?
Well FIRST you can read about the new book below. THEN (yes, there’s more) you can enter to win a copy of the book AND an awesome set of Hocus Pocus swag!
It’s pretty awesome, just sayin’.

Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens.
Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity.
Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison's seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don't quite go as planned, it's a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches' latest death-defying scheme.
