The Babysitters Coven

The cover was bright & colorful—that‘s why I picked it up. I did not regret it but I wouldn‘t recommend. As someone who‘s well educated in the land of entertainment, I‘ve seen all what the book has to offer before. And I‘ve seen it done better. But to anyone who only reads books, or been out of entertainment circle long enough, this book is sure to WOW you. Be warned though that the climax falls flat and it‘s a vanilla swept-under-the-rug ending.

This book has some mixed reviews on Goodreads but I enjoyed it. Keep in mind it is a YA book and teens are the target audience. I liked the characters and their witchy going ons. Cute book.
Thanks to @monalyisha for gifting this to me! 💜

monalyisha Can‘t wait to read this one! How‘s the nostalgia factor? Any good OG BSC references? 2w

Nothing like a book in bed/Sunday read. This was “leftover” from the #Scarathlon meaning I started it with the intent to finish in October but that didn‘t happen. Still, it was an okay read. Babysitters and witches and felt almost like Buffy fanfic. Not sure if I will pick up the sequel...but still. Oh an I get to use it for #bbrc #teenangst at least.

LibrarianRyan Cool. Lots of people are rating it soso 2w

Alyisha this is an amazing package!!! I love the crystals book-it is beautiful. I also love that you shared a kids book that you love with me. I am such a fan of children‘s books 🖤 The bath bomb is amazing! The mug is fantastic and I can‘t wait to read The Babysitter‘s Coven and the Saturday Night Ghost Club! Yummy cookies and tea, little witchy brooms and a beautiful crystal. Your card was also so lovely. Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness.

monalyisha I cannot emphasize enough how much I love that tea. 😅 I may have some tonight while we watch our scary movie (despite the fact that it‘s caffeinated; I likely won‘t sleep anyway (due to the aforementioned movie) so I might as well lean into it)! 3w

I‘m speechless! Megan, you‘ve outdone yourself. This is such an incredible, special, heartfelt package! 🖤 All of the books sound like fun, the candle is beautiful and it smells great, coffee, bookmarks, book sleeve, crystal necklace (I‘m wearing it today!), but most of all, this painting you created of Nico and Charlie (my familiars) is THE BEST THING EVER! I‘m crying. 🖤🖤🖤

Catching up on reviews now that I am off work for the weekend!

This book suffers from the amazing cover/interesting premise that doesn‘t quite live up to expectations curse. If I hadn‘t been listening to this as an audiobook I probably wouldn‘t have finished it. With demons and spells, this definitely fits the #teamstoker theme. The climax also takes place on Halloween.

Pretty good for a debut novel. Was a fan of the babysitters club growing up, so add that with a mix of Buffy. And you have this book.

I just read a bookstagram review that in a nutshell said that this was a less good version of Meddling Kids.

I hated Meddling Kids. Such a good cover with such a disappointing storyline. Kinda scared to start this now 😭

Loved it. 😊 It‘s very much the first book in a series & probably will resonate most with people who read Babysitters Club books then watched Buffy (so maybe it‘s a YA book mostly likely to be a hit with readers who grew up in the 90‘s 🤔) but it‘s light, funny, fast paced & poignant all at the same time. The editing is tight & the writing is elegantly well tuned. Teenagers might miss a lot of the pop culture but I suspect they‘d enjoy it as is.

LiteraryinLititz Great review! 1mo

I give The Babysitters Coven by Kate Williams 3.5 stars. Overall I really liked the plot and the meat of the story, but I didn‘t enjoy all of the pop culture references.

“Tell me you do not want to kill Kevin.”
Now she look offended. “Of course not! Kevin‘s been through enough.”

As have I, this has been an okay read but I‘m largely underwhelmed. It took over half the novel for anything to really happen and while this book wasn‘t really for me I know plenty others will have fun with it.

We're trying to read a galley about kickass babysitters, but Page is having issues staying comfortable. Hence laying on my eReader. She got stung by a bee this morning, on her eye and ear. She loves chasing them and this time they decided enough...she didn't though, even after being stung she continued to chase them. Aside from itching and swelling she seems fine, but I think she wanted to prove she's a kickass babysitter's sidekick 😎🐶🐝🦸‍♀️.

Described as The Babysitters Club meets Buffy & it's definitely an apt comparison. Esme has been a babysitter forever but when she accidentally hurls a dodgeball with her mind & learns that she's a Sitter, tasked with protecting the world, life gets complicated. The 1st half of the book took its time to get into the good stuff but by the 2nd half I was thoroughly enjoying it. A fun, light read about supernatural girls kicking supernatural butt.
