    I decided to pick this up because I missed watching my favorite witch & co. It definitely didn’t disappoint and I’m glad for that. The book proved a quick short read and was a good read. Most of the book is written in first person but it does have alternating third person chapters focused on different characters and their thoughts. I really liked that because we know first hand how Sabrina feels as well as what the other characters think and feel too.

Also I really enjoyed the snippets with Nick in here too! Definitely recommend this book to any fans of the new series.

(view spoiler)[But as she realises that Harvey has a less than perfect home life too, she begins to see that all families can be complicated, whether they be mortal or witch. (hide spoiler)] She also struggles with her families disdain for mortals - she herself is half-mortal, so do they view her as a lesser being as well? This captured the feel of the show really well. Tommy's sections felt particularly touching - anyone who has seen the show will probably appreciate them. You could certainly read this without having seen the show, but many things will feel more poignant if you are familiar with the characters already-- the insights into Prudence or Nick would work better if you know how things play out.

    I received a copy of this book from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. You can see this review and many others on my Blog I really enjoyed this prequel novel to Netflix's show "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", and I think it's perfect for anyone who really likes the show. Personally, I really liked the show, so I think that somewhat goes into my enjoyment of this book. It's a very cute and fun YA/Middle Grade story about a girl who is half-witch and half-mortal.

This book is told in a pretty interesting format, where it alternates from Sabrina's perspective to one where we see some of the side characters perspectives. I absolutely loved to see all the family/friend dynamics, especially Tommy and Harvey, as we didn't see much of their dynamic in the show. I will say my one issue with this book was that I felt that the plot was very slow, and that's not one of my favorite things. But, overall I enjoyed the book, and it added quite a lot to the characters. I will definitely be picking up the sequel when it comes out. I highly recommend! Blog | Instagram | Pinterest

Book adaptations of movies and shows are always a risky thing to do. Season of the Witch isn’t the worst I’ve read, but it certainly wasn’t the best. Everything about this story was very flat. You are definitely able to read it without having first seen the Netflix Original show. There were no inside details that somebody would have a hard time figuring out or understanding if they were to read the book first. If the book had been my introduction to these characters and story, though, I don’t think I would have explored the series more. As an extension to the show, the reader is able to get to know the characters a bit more. In between each of Sabrina’s chapters is a chapter from different character’s POV. While some of them seemed like pure filler, there were a few that were interesting. I really loved getting to know Harvey’s brother, Tommy, and he definitely broke my heart. These extra character chapters were printed on black paper with white text and I had a really hard time reading them. I wish they had been formatted the same as the rest of the book and there was a different way to set them apart. As a concept, it’s a really neat idea, but it didn’t work well in the end. I was incredibly disappointed that Sabrina’s friends, Roz and Susie, were not in the book very much. They’re such a special and vital part of the series and their presence was definitely missed. The few times we did see these two, they felt very hollow and not how they should be. The creepiness and darkness that was so well done in the show were also nonexistent in this novelization. I think a big part of that was due to the lack of a real plot. There wasn’t a very consistent storyline happening and things moved way too slowly. I am glad that I read Season of the Witch. It was a quick book to get through and I loved seeing some of the events that led up to the first season of the show. Something I really enjoyed was getting more insight on Sabrina and Ambrose’s relationship which I don’t feel Netflix explored enough. There is a second book, Daughter of Chaos, set to come out in December. I’ll probably end up giving it a shot because I really can never get enough of my beloved Sabrina. Fingers crossed some of these issues will be fixed in it. A finished copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    “‘To be a witch is to kiss the moon.’” This was a quick read to add to my Sabrina book collection. It goes along with the darker nature of the comic books and Netflix series, but the book was different enough from the series to still be interesting. The writing was good with creepy details, and I loved Harvey’s brother Tommy. This is definitely the first in a series and is a set up book to show Sabrina struggling with dark and light. It takes place before she begins attending the Academy. I def “‘To be a witch is to kiss the moon.’” This was a quick read to add to my Sabrina book collection.

"Power shouldn't only be in the hands of those with cold, fickle hearts. If I wanted better magic, I had to make magic for myself." We all know I am obsessed with Archie Comics and its many series both on page and on screen. I've made it a pattern to recap Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as it is airing and, of course, I reviewed the comics years ago. I'm a lifelong Sabrina Spellman fan, to be perfectly honest with you. So, it should come as no shock to you that I am completely in love with this book. We're talking, I've reached CAN I GIVE THIS BOOK MORE THAN FIVE STARS? levels of excitement and joy. That being said, Season of the Witch is so good. Sarah Rees Brennan was the best choice to write up this prequel because she actually understands these characters and their voices. You can easily see the story play out in your mind. While some prequels and novelizations to television series can feel, at times, unnecessary, Season of the Witch is essential. If you've watched the Netflix series and found yourself mentally trying to fill in the gaps, the before, the characteristics that we've yet to understand, this book will answer many questions for you. (It also sets a clear path to where the series may go in the future, RE: Mrs. Wardwell now that Madam Satan has resurrected her and seemingly left Greendale, Father Blackwood, Nick Scratch, etc.) Season of the Witch is a highly character driven read with that bleak sense of dark comedy and horror you've come to love in the show. Rees Brennan breaths life into the characters we've grown to know and love and fleshes them out further. If you've ever felt like there was a bit of blank space in these characters development, this book fills it in for you. Season of the Witch utilizes its multiple POV in a way that is engrossing and fully understood--we walk away from the novel with a sense of having more knowledge about them than ever. I thought the spookiness was at a minimum but it still creates a nice balance and ties back into the weeks leading up to the pilot episode. It's impossible to put down and just plain fun. I loved seeing the distinct voices (Sabrina, Ambrose, Harvey, Tommy, Hilda, Zelda, Nick, Prudence, etc) and the varied dynamics (Sabrina/Ambrose and Harvey/Tommy have so many good moments in Season of the Witch and it made me appreciate their bonds even more) from the series. What I loved most about Season of the Witch was how everything tied together by the end. There was so much that happened in such a modest novel and it all played into the bigger picture beautifully. There were even a few moments that reminded me of the sitcom (re: a spell gone array) and that made me smile in pure nostalgia. Other things to look forward to: an interaction between two characters that is soon forgotten, Tommy Kinkle character development that makes you appreciate him more/mourn his death from the first season, flashbacks to Sabrina's childhood from the POV of other Spellman family members, Zelda Spellman's narration (!!!!) and so much more. While the show thrives in its creepy setting and tones of pure empowerment, and destiny, Season of the Witch takes these traits and emphasizes the importance of the familial bonds in the series, as well as the many types of complexities in the human (ahem, or witch) mind. Overall, I think that Season of the Witch is one of those rare prequels that just works with what we've already known is canon. In short, it is brilliant and thrilling and definitely a great read for fans of the show. If you love the quick wit, creepy atmosphere and tone of the television series you're going to love Season of the Witch with every bit of your heart.

    The characters here matched the show perfectly, and for that, I applaud Sarah Rees Brennan. I imagine that was incredibly hard to do. I particularly loved the other characters chapters. They were the highlight of this book for me, and I think that's just because we see so much of Sabrina in the TV show. It was great to see outside of her story. I loved the formatting of this book, but the black pages (with white letters) had my eyes straining a bit.

    I actually bought this book because it was pretty cheap on Amazon and I had been watching the TV series. Considering how the show doesn't have the best writing in the world I had no expectations. I guess that's why this book has been a delightful surprise to me. All the things I missed in the show, I found them here. I loved how we get to see more of Ambrose and his relationship with Sabrina. Also Zelda or Prudence's more vulnerable side. All in all, this was a good reading. I actually bought this book because it was pretty cheap on Amazon and I had been watching the TV series.

    “Never go into the woods after dark.” Season one and two of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are my absolute favourite. I just finished a rewatch, I love it a little more every time but I’ve always had questions about certain characters and certain moments in the show. I really enjoyed getting a more in depth look at the every day goings on of Sabrina's life. Some of my favourite scenes were in the ‘What Happens In The Dark' chapters.

I loved the Tommy chapter in particular, I really like his character in the show and this just made me love him even more. It also gave me so many feels. By the end of this book I was an emotional mess. Every chapter with Ambrose broke my heart a little, the fact that Father Shit-For-Brains wants to grant him his freedom just to use him enrages me! The scene with Sabrina by the water in the ‘Wish’ chapter absolutely freaked me out. I was torn between the physical book and the audiobook for this read. I love the way the chapters are done in the book, and I love both of the readers for the audio so I went back and forth between them. If audios are your thing I highly recommend checking this one out. I’d definitely listen to it again in full. It wasn’t as ‘Chilling' as I thought it might be, but now that I’ve finished it, the fact that it wasn’t makes sense – Sabrina's story is just getting started and I cannot wait to read the next instalment. Sarah has a way with words that captivated me completely. “Lost, lost, lost, the leaves in the wild woods had whispered to me yesterday, but the woods were wrong. So was anyone who told me I had to choose between love and magic. I didn’t plan on losing either.

    This was a quick, cute, fun read! It definitely didn’t effect the plot of the Netflix series (the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), but was a really nice prelude into the story and gave great backstory on so many of the characters. I liked how much more we got to see of the relationship between Sabrina and Ambrose. He’s one of my favorites. And the point of view from Tommy was bittersweet and beautiful. Interested to read the rest of the books and see how they tie in!

If I were to be completely honest with both you and myself, I'd have to admit that it was the character moments and the peeks into their inner lives that set the book apart for me and pushed it just that bit further to make it near and dear to my heart. I think Sarah Rees Brennan takes a lot of elements, both in terms of narrative and characters, that were merely teased in the show and breathes the necessary life into them in order to flash everything out properly. I don't know if I'd necessarily recommend this to people who haven't seen the show yet as they may miss some of the connections and whatnot, but I do believe that this is a fab story regardless. Also, would highly recommend the audiobook! Cannot wait to see what Sarah does with the other books in the series and I am, dare I say, possibly more excited for them than I am for the TV show.

    Good shit. Not the plot. To be honest the plot could be absoulety about anything and it wouldn't change much about the whole thing. But Sarah Rees Brennan recreated the voices of the characters perfectly. And what's more important, she recreated what is going on in their heads perfectly. But reading white font on black pages was pure horror. Good shit. Not the plot. To be honest the plot could be absoulety about anything and it wouldn't change much about the whole thing.

I absolutely loved this book! I’ve only really just this week started watching the Netflix Show that this book was written as a prequel of, and truly, it was done so brilliantly! Sarah Rees Brennan captured the Sabrina that we know and love, as well as devoting some interlude type chapters to the supporting characters, too. I loved these chapters so much!! When I started watching the show, I wondered why Zelda would seemingly kill Hilda, purely because she can, knowing that Hilda would resurrect shortly after. But still, this prequel novel just gave Zelda so much more heart and insight into her character! I suppose I only really knew her as a sharper edge to Hilda’s softer coin, I mean Hilda is just so kind and warm and clearly cares for Sabrina and Ambrose, but honestly this book just gave me a whole new way to look at Zelda’s character and I definitely know that she would do anything for her family. One of the main features in this book is Harvey and Sabrina’s relationship, not quite boyfriend/girlfriend to one another just yet but clearly head over heels with one another, but of course Sabrina’s Dark Summoning is looming, where she’s expected to sign her soul over to the Dark Lord and farewell her friends as she starts her new life in the Coven. I love that Sabrina doesn’t want to farewell everything she knows, I mean, who wouldn’t? But this novel brilliantly captures her friendship circle, Harvey of course, who clearly dotes on her, but also her amazing close friends, Roz and Suzie. I love how they have chapters throughout this story, it was great getting into their mindset and what they thought about the oddities that are Sabrina’s beloved Aunts. It was great to see Sabrina and her family interact throughout this book, Zelda and Hilda of course expecting Sabrina to take part in the summoning soon, then she’ll get to find her familiar and dabble more in her powers, but of course they only want what’s best for her and above everything, they certainly want her to be safe! Ambrose too, was portrayed really brilliantly throughout this book, we learn more about how he came to be confined to the Spellman house and you could just feel her longing for something more. When a spell placed on Harvey goes slightly awry, causing him to express his feelings for Sabrina in very darling but also very dramatically loud ways, this causes some conflict between Sabrina and her beloved Cousin – but as Ambrose’s true feelings about his situation comes to light, I just knew Sabrina was the sunshine in his often dark, lonely life. In turn, Sabrina adores Ambrose and her Aunts too, that much is known. She’s just such a fabulous character, very protective and loyal to the ones she loves, her friends and Harvey included and even though she knows she’ll come into her powers soon and might just face a crossroads about her two lives as it were, I love her optimism that she shouldn’t have to choose between both lives! She is a half witch, half mortal – Diana, her beloved Mother, would have wanted a happy and safe lifestyle for her, something akin to the best of both worlds- oh, I my heart went out so much to Sabrina as she longed for her parents, a sense of normality in this sometimes crazy and quirky life of hers! If you’re a fan of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina show, then I cannot recommend this book enough! If you’re yet to watch it but are thinking about it, then I definitely advocate picking up the book prior! It just provides an utterly bewitching (pun definitely intended!) insight and heartfelt back story to where The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina begins!

However, Sarah Rees Brennan brings to life each character and fleshes out their complex personalities and provokes all ‘the feels’ and emotions (if not more) that you get from watching the show. I especially enjoyed exploring the inner monologues of the Spellman sisters, Ambrose, and Tommy. Actually what, or who, surprised me the most was Miss Wardwell, I feel like I saw her character in a way I hadn’t before, although we don’t get much of a chance to meet the real her in the series for other reasons anyway which could be why I enjoyed the extra dimensions the book provided. I also couldn’t stop my heart from aching a few times when a character innocently went about their business and I knew what fate had in store for them. Ah, the issues of a prequel. Although in that sense its interesting to see the lead up to the series, where the characters were before we meet them originally. It situates their lives in Greendale nicely. If you, like me, enjoy the series and enjoy a good book, I recommend giving it a go. Its beautifully descriptive, creepy, and emotional. It has all your favourite characters and a few different ones and works great as an audiobook as well, I listened to the version on Spotify when I was at work. I recommend.

    I am all for the darkness of Sabrina the TV show and I thought it would be interesting to see how that dark element would be delivered into a book but yet still have a light heart feel to the darkness so you don’t feel as though you are in a morbid horror written by Stephen King (not that there is anything wrong with that!) However Brennan pulled it off! This prequel to the TV show fits in perfect and you can tell that Brannen has researched the characters and they types of personalities they hav I am all for the darkness of Sabrina the TV show and I thought it would be interesting to see how that dark element would be delivered into a book but yet still have a light heart feel to the darkness so you don’t feel as though you are in a morbid horror written by Stephen King (not that there is anything wrong with that!) However Brennan pulled it off! This prequel to the TV show fits in perfect and you can tell that Brannen has researched the characters and they types of personalities they have as well as their mannerisms. She also fills in the details of objects and ornaments that you will find around the house, or specifically, a witches house. The way that Brennan uses descriptive terms is brilliant and is exactly what I look for a in a writer’s work. She doesn’t overload you with descriptions but provides enough to set up an image in your mind with a little use of your imagination or imagery from the TV show. Writing aside, I found the story highly engaging and really interesting and it laid the ground work perfectly for the TV show. You get to read flashbacks of Sabrina’s childhood from the point of view of other family members and from this you get to see how Sabrina formed and grew into the witch we love. Overall I couldn’t fault this book, it was beautiful and brilliant. If you are a fan of the original Sabrina comics or the TV show then I highly recommend you read this!!!

    “I mean, launching into deep philosophical conversations about, like, feelings… I normally just have sex with people, or curse them, you know, normal stuff…” the harvey/nick scene was… a lot

    Thank you so much @scholasticau for sending me a copy to read and review :) First let me just say that I haven't watched the Netflix series, but now that I've read this I am definitely going to too, I need to know more of Sabrina's adventures! (I did use to watch the old school one with Mellissa Joan Hart!) This was a really fun and easy to read story about a girl that is half mortal and half witch who is leading a "somewhat" mortal life until her 16th birthday when she undertakes her dark baptis Thank you so much @scholasticau for sending me a copy to read and review :) First let me just say that I haven't watched the Netflix series, but now that I've read this I am definitely going to too, I need to know more of Sabrina's adventures! (I did use to watch the old school one with Mellissa Joan Hart!) This was a really fun and easy to read story about a girl that is half mortal and half witch who is leading a "somewhat" mortal life until her 16th birthday when she undertakes her dark baptism. Sabrina lives with her two Aunts; Zelda and Hilda and her housebound cousin, Ambrose. It was fun reading about her family dynamic and their stories, I particularly enjoyed reading about Ambrose's and seeing his character development throughout. This story is written in a fun format that includes sections written from the perspectives of different characters, it was interesting to learn more about them and their backstory. Sarah incorporated so much into this 284 page novel and everything tied together perfectly with great pacing - it was so easy to picture this story play out as you read it! Overall, I loved reading this story and am super excited to get my hands on Book 2 - Daughter of Chaos! Whether you've watched the show or not, I highly recommend picking this up :) Season of the Witch is available now at www.scholastic.com.au

    I couldn't resist but read this after spending my youth (many, many moons ago) watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch - you know the one? with Melissa Joan Hart? anyway, I digress. This book was a really fun read! It picked up pace from the start and got straight in on Sabrina and her time before she becomes a fully seasoned witch. I really enjoyed getting to know Sabrina and how it all started. The book was broken up nicely with it mostly from Sabrinas POV, with the darker pages being clear markers I couldn't resist but read this after spending my youth (many, many moons ago) watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch - you know the one? with Melissa Joan Hart? anyway, I digress. This book was a really fun read! It picked up pace from the start and got straight in on Sabrina and her time before she becomes a fully seasoned witch. I really enjoyed getting to know Sabrina and how it all started. The book was broken up nicely with it mostly from Sabrinas POV, with the darker pages being clear markers of others POV and back stories. The dark pages was a nice touch to make it easy to separate, however the pages were a little hard to read with the graininess, but that could be my less than youthful eyesight. I genuinely giggled OFTEN throughout the book and I truly appreciate when an author can do that. Ambrose, Sabrinas cousin, was so funny and sly all at the same time - I couldn't get enough of him! Sabrinas relationship with Harvey was painful to read for all the right reasons, I felt myself blushing from embarrasment for him as I read. The various relationships Sabrina has with the other characters really brings out her own character and personality just that bit more, A nice quick read, and a great story to set the scene for Sabrina before her 16th birthday! If you have seen Sabrina - old or new then this is still a great prequal to fill in some blanks, and if you haven't seen Sabrina - GO DO THAT. Thanks Scholastic AU for sending me this book to review!

    “Blind your mind and blind your heart Let these painful thoughts depart.” Excerpt From Season of the Witch (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Book #1) I want to start by saying that I have not seen any of the new series of Sabrina. With that let me say this, Your not walking through a closet to the other Realm in this book! And I don’t think we’re going to see Sabrina riding a vacuum 😭 No your going darker, and it’s amazing! Although I must say, I get the feeling Ambrose is a lot like Amanda 😂💀
