This weekend, I finally got my hands on a copy of For Better or Cursed, the second installment in “The Babysitters Coven” series by Kate Williams and I flew through it! As a babysitter and aspiring witch, these books are everything I could want in a magical novel, and I had to share them with you.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this up and coming series, “The Babysitters Coven” follows the adventures of babysitter extraordinaire Esme Pearl as she navigates her magical powers and uncovers the secrets of her past and the Sitterhood, all while making sure the kids she sits for are in bed before their parents get home.

Esme is a wonderful narrator and she cracks me up every chapter. Even when the story gets dark and scary, Esme remains curious, thoughtful, and grounded, and I can’t wait to read more of her story. The second book in the series expanded upon the world and characters I already know and love and had everything I wanted to see in a sequel and more!

The third book in this series will be released in the fall of 2021 and I absolutely can’t WAIT for more of Kate Williams’ incredible writing. The mystery and magic of these books draw you in from the very first chapter and captivates you through the final page. I recommend this series to all YA readers, babysitters, and magic lovers, and especially those who dream of fighting demons with their superpowers to protect the people they love… oh, that last one can’t just be me right?

Have you read these books yet? If so, what did you think? Are there any books you would like me to review next? Let me know in the comments!
