**3.5-stars rounded up**
Spells Like Teen Spirit is the third, and purportedly final book, in Kate Williams’ Babysitter Coven series.
This entire series is a ridiculous ball of laughs that is part Buffy the Vampire Slayer and part Adventures in Babysitting.
Although, I will say, as the series progressed, the whole babysitting angle sort of dropped off a cliff. Luckily, the rest of it more than made up for that slight change.
In this installment, we again follow teen witches, Esme and Cassandra, as they continue their fight against the forces of evil and try to discover a way to end Esme’s Mom’s curse, all while protecting the town from an evil rock band.
While I didn’t have quite as much fun with this one as I did with the second book, it was still cute and hilarious. Nothing could really beat the chickens in the hotel room from For Better Or Cursed.
I really enjoyed being back with this group of characters, especially the girls we were introduced to in the second book and a certain four-legged companion.
The audiobooks for this series are so well narrated; I definitely recommend them as a medium if you choose to check out these stories.
Williams has a consistently good sense of humor. Her 90s vibe and references gave me life throughout this series.
While I can see this as an ending, I sort of wish it weren’t. I think there is so much left to explore for Esme and the rest of this fun-loving group of characters. I mean, there are still demons out there, who is going to defeat them if not Esme and Cassandra?
I’m not ready for it to be over. C’mon, Kate Williams, I know you have more in you!!
