    This was just such a fun book. (and yes, would make a great movie or tv show.) Cass and Esme are settling in to being Sitters, fighting and vanquishing demons with easy regularity. But now it?s time for some big annual conference, which is going to be held in their town this year. T...

    E ARC provided by Netgalley Definitely look for this one for a high school or public library. Fun story. I was hoping that this one would appeal to my students, but it ended up having more YA pacing and descriptions to it, so I don't know that I'll look for book one. ...

    DNF @ 30% I can't do it. These covers are so gorgeous and I love the premise but I can't deal with the execution of the story. The plot is not for me. There are too many variables of lying to everyone around you, hiding BIG things from the people who could help, and...

    The first third of this book is literally the monotony of party planning, and while I can definitely relate to having no clue what is hip with "kids" my age. This was incredibly difficult for me to slog through, and it felt like I was being subjugated to some layer of hell. E...

    You know the TV commercial for Geico that shows a group of teens trying to escape from a Michael Myers-esque killer and they choose to get behind the chainsaws instead of getting in the running car? I must have seen it a gazillion times and I still always chuckle, point being, this boo...

    3.5, rounding up. The Babysitters Coven series is so full of humor and adventure! I always have a good time when I'm reading them, and For Better or Cursed helped me cope with a fairly serious reading slump. Lighthearted and fun, For Better or Cursed followed Esme and Cassandra on...

    Thank you To Netgalley for allowing to read the book an giving me the eBook in exchange for my honest opinion. Having read the first book in the series I am glad the pace of the first book has continued into the 2nd. The pace is set very slow at the beginning focusing more on the av...

    I?m disappointed to be giving this 3 stars because I loved the first one and was hoping to recapture that experience, but it was so slow and some very odd descriptions and similes/metaphors that left me perplexed. (I hope no one is comparing my face to a Krispy Kreme ?) Cassand...
