Kate Williams: The Babysitters Coven



Enough I want to know I will happily average both together and give it 4 stars Can t wait to read the next installment Babysitting comes with a lot of responsibility One should never take it lightlyAs a Sitter you re literally accountable for maintaining the health and wellness of the little humans left in your care But did you know that some Sitters are responsible for much than that Like protecting the entire Earth from evilIt s true but when Esme Pearl formed her Babysitters Club she didn t know either Unfortunately for Esme she had to find out the hard wayPart Buffy the Vampire Slayer part Babysitters Club this book brings Horror Comedy to a whole new levelI was giggling to myself throughout the entire story Apparently the author and I share a brain and have the same exact sense of humor Esme was such a fun character to read and although parts of this were predictable I had a great time nonetheless The culminating scene does occur on Halloween as well so perfect for the Fall Spooky seasonI loved all the pop culture references the definite homage to Buffy and that fun teen horror atmosphere I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fast and funny Teen ScreamThank you so much to the publisher Delacorte Press for providing me with a copy to read and review I look forward to seeing what this author comes up with next Such a cute book Esme had a great voice and was really funny While the story had bits of a been there done that sort of story I still enjoyed it 35 starsBuffy the Vampire Slayers The Babysitters Club 2019 humor This was cute and funny but I wasn t the right audience Concept Aesthetic Plot 12Age range the young end of YA The Babysitters Coven is a FUN read It doesn t take itself too seriously and makes the comparison to its own roots as the 2019 lovechild of Buffy and The Babysitters Club Esme Pearl is a high school student with a passion for uirky fashion and a love of babysitting She started a babysitting hotline with her best friend Janis and while they mainly use it as an excuse to hang out every day they do get freuent babysitting reuests However things are changing in Esme s world When she gets mad things move As things continue to happen around her Esme realizes that maybe she s not going crazy like her mom did Enter Cassandra Heaven the new girl in school She seems weirdly focused on Esme and she s definitely noticed the telekinesis Oh and she s obsessed with oining the babysitting club What s going on with the babysitters and why does Esme feel like things are following a pre destined path A few spells demons and trainings later and things start to make sense The Babysitters Coven made no bones about being filled with tropes but it was still a rollicking good time It s nice to see a YA novel cater to the 13 15 year olds but due to its younger humor and use of tropes it was not a personal favorite Unlike many of the YA novels coming out this one is actually for its young audiences and not the many adults like me who read the genre anyway Thank you to Delcorte Press for an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review This one has probably one of my favorite covers of the year It had a lot of fun things going on The Day We Meet Again just wish there had been a little on the romance side of things.

Of The Craft and a heavy dollop of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch I didn t get that and maybe part of that is on me for having unrealistically high expectations but part of that is definitely on the bookFirst even though this book is set in high school it felt so immature it almost feels like a middle grade novel There was also an element of being out of touch I never felt like I was reading about a bunch of teenagers It felt like reading about a mom pretending to be a sanitized version of what they imagined a teenager was like from watching The Disney Channel all daySecond the magic and world building is a bit of a mess THE BABYSITTERS COVEN skates that fine line between a book that wants to be taken at face value and an homageparody The magic spells seemed cool but the execution of them was kind of lame And then the fact that the book basically used the plot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer to explain how magic worked in this universe felt totally lazy Don t use other universes that did you one better as a crutch to hold up your own shoddy world building it will Powder Room just remind me that better stories exist out there than yoursThird the babysitting club element had a nice hook but didn t really capture that responsibility and closeness that made the original Babysitters Club series so compelling The girls in the original BCC were mature for their age and had a lot of interesting hobbies The girls in this BCC aren t as invested in theirobs are actually pretty immature and engage in girl on girl hate I was very disappointed The only thing they have in common with the original BCC is that they re a club of girls who occasionally babysit and they like to create themed outfits like Claudia from the original BCC did but after a while their themed outfits started to seem too precious and contrived and annoyingI m pretty disappointed by how much I didn t like this upon finishing THE BABYSITTERS COVEN was one of my biggest anticipated reads and ended up becoming one of my biggest disappointments Maybe it would be good for a preteen girl who enjoys the Disney Channel but it wasn t great for me Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 2 stars A uick note before we dive in as a reviewer I strive to be critical yet respectful because I know how much work goes into writing a book I prescribe to the belief that no two readers read the same book and I make an effort to highlight positives about the book be clear about the reasons why I didn t enjeoy it and to the extent possible share who may enjoy it I originally was going to rate this 2 stars but after sorting through my feelings and writing my review I realized I personally cannot recommend this book I think there have got to be better witchy reads out there without harmful stereotypes and creepy adult behavior for teens to read Believe me no one is sadder than I am that this book didn t work for me The cover is absolutely eye catching and Adventures in Babysitting meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a phras The Babysitters Coven was cute funny and snarky I loved the first half 5 stars and liked the second half 3 stars I feel like The Sitters and how they came to be all their history how each was chosen etc wasn t explained well. D at itAnd lately Esme needs all the cash she can get because it seems like destruction follows her wherever she goes Let's ust say she owes some people a new treeEnter Cassandra Heaven She's Instagram model hot dresses like she found her clothes in a dumpster and has a rebellious streak as gnarly as the cafeteria food So why is Cassandra willing to do anything even take on a potty training tw.

The Babysitters Coven was my first pick to read during spookathon I received this book during September but wanted to save it for that readathonIn the end I suffered from major reading slump and this novel ended up being the only book I finished that weekHowever when I look objectively this book was pretty fun and enjoyable I ust wish I read it when I was in a better placeThis paranormal young adult was pitched as Buffy meets The Babysitters Club Therefore I assumed there would be vampires in the bookOh how wrong was IVampires were not part of this story but the similarity with Buffy is undeniable and if you decide to give it a try you will know exactly whyIt had the similar polity with chosen girls to protect the world and their teacher to guide themIt really reminded me of the season where Buffy was not the only Vampire slayer in the showThe writing style is really good with lots of humour It is really easy to read and I believe that if I wasn t in a reading slump I would finish it in a day or twoThe story is written in first person from Esme s POVI liked Esme she was great narrator to follow and since I enjoyed all the characters I hope to get even attached to them in the second installmentSince I can t consider this book a master piece I think good character development and thrive would take this series on another levelStill I very much enjoyed The Babysitters Coven and will gladly continue with the series Read this and reviews on my blog I m still on the fence between 25 and 3 stars for this one I really enjoyed the writing and how easy it was to fly through this one The characters worked pretty well in the story and I spent a good amount of time laughing at Esme s embarrassing moments I think my biggest issue with this one is that I may have overhyped myself for it I mean The Babysitter s Club meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer is going to catch anyone s attention who grew up in the 90 s Now add witches to the mix and I was basically salivating at the mouth The Babysitters Coven was a fun book it doesn t take itself too seriously and it presents a really interesting premise reminiscent of something straight out of the 1990 s in a good nostalgic sort of way while still being a relevant and modern story Esme was a great main character not only does she prove that witchcraft doesn t have to be contained to antagonism and evil in fiction but also that responsibility and friendship are important She s a pretty decent role model for YA readers reallyThe book contrary to its title is limited in the actual witch related stuff that happens in the book It s not the type of random bouts of exciting magic on almost every page that books such as Harry Potter present There were also a few times where it wasn t entirely clear what the book s plot was getting at Still it s a likeable and powerful YA fantasy novel it s perfect as a Halloween read or even Rebooting India just a book for fans of the occult and I personally really enjoyed reading it Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestTHE BABYSITTERS COVEN is one of those books that I was hotly anticipating for fall The tongue in cheek title and gorgeous cover made me feel so hopeful that what I was going to get was going to be a cross between my childhood favorite The Babysitters Club with a dash. Adventures in Babysitting meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this funny action packed novel about a coven of witchy babysitters who realize their calling to protect the innocent and save the world from an onslaught of evil Seventeen year old Esme Pearl has a babysitters club She knows it's kinda lame but what else is she supposed to do Get aob Gross Besides Esme likes babysitting and she's goo.
