    We all know babysitting comes with a lot of responsibility. You are literally accountable for maintaining the health and wellness of little humans. But did you know that some babysitters are responsible for much more than that? Like protecting the entire Earth from evil?It's true, but when Esme Pearl formed her Babysitters Club, she didn't know. Unfortunately for Esme, she had to find out the hard way.I feel weird sort of giving that away but it'...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || 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 of The Craft, and a heavy dollop of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I didn't get that, and maybe part ...

    The Babysitters Coven was my first pick to read during spookathon. I received this book during September, but wanted to save it for that readathon.In the end, I suffered from major reading slump and this novel ended up being the only book I finished that week.However, when I look objectively, this book was pretty fun and enjoyable, I just wish I read it when I was in a better place.This paranormal young adult was pitched as Buffy meets The Babysi...

    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! :)

    I'm still on the fence between 2.5 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 ...

    A quick 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 feelin...

    3.5 starsBuffy the Vampire Slayers + The Babysitters Club + 2019 humor. This was cute and funny, but I wasn't the right audience. Concept: Aesthetic: Plot: 1/2Age range: the young end of YAThe 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 quirky fashion and a love of ba...

    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 enough. I want to know more!I will happily average both together and give it 4 stars. Can't wait to read the next installment!

    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. ...
