Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog! How are you all?
Today is my stop in the The Babysitters Coven blog tour and I have a review and some favourite quotes for you guys!
And no without further ado let’s start with this post.
Synopsis:Add the book to your Goodreads to-read shelf
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 a job? Gross. Besides, Esme likes babysitting, and she’s good at it.
And lately Esme needs all the cash she can get, because it seems like destruction follows her wherever she goes. Let’s just say she owes some people a new tree.
Enter 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 two-year-old, to join Esme’s babysitters club?
The answer lies in a mysterious note Cassandra’s mother left her: “Find the babysitters. Love, Mom.”
Turns out, Esme and Cassandra have more in common than they think, and they’re about to discover what being a babysitter really means: a heroic lineage of superpowers, magic rituals, and saving the innocent from seriously terrifying evil. And all before the parents get home.

What I liked
Can we please talk about the witches? The Babysitters Coven totally reminded me of Charmed just without the sisters. And as a big Charmed Fan I knew right from the beginning that I would love it. This book also reminded me of a book series that I used to read as a child. The Babysitters Club. I honestly couldn’t rave enough about this book. I loved every single aspect of it!
Williams writing style was amazing as well. I couldn’t put the book down. Williams had the perfect way to describe her characters, what happened and what they were going through. Seriously it was great!
Like I mentioned above, this book reminded me a lot of The Babysitters Club and Charmed and I liked the main idea of this novel. Teenage Girls that were babysitters and who discover that something strange is going on.
What I didn’t like
I have nothing to say. The only point I have to criticise would be the fact that the end could have come a bit sooner. But honestly that’s my own opinion.
Overall, The Babysiters Coven is a great read for every paranormal fan out here. Not only young adults!
I’m a YA write or die, originally from Kansas but now living in California.
I’ve written for Cosmopolitan, NYLON and Seventeen, amongst other magazines, and worked with brands including Urban Outfitters, Vans and Calvin Klein.
The Babysitters Coven is my first novel, but fingers crossed it won’t be my last.
