I think no matter what the villian wil always be ugly whether they are pretty or not.


Bewitching can be a beast. Throughout the centuries, Kendra occasionally uses her powers to aid people, but bewktching always to good effect. A complex one but she makes the story interesting. And because of that, five stars. Bewitching is just that, a beginning to know that fabulous person a lot more. The emotions of the characters and the things they go through will have you at the edge of your seat.


Along the way she finds a house made out of gingerbread. One of the only ways a witch can truly die. If you were a fan of Beastly then I think you will enjoy this one just as much.

I was really cheering for Emma through all her trials and would love to read more about her. Of course I am a firm believer in fairy tales and love how Alex Flinn spices it up a bit and modernizes it up too. I go to a new school now—one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago.

This time around Kendra is trying to help out a girl named Emma. Flinn out did herself in this spectacular tale of my favorite witch. But my God, there are better ways to handle things. She tries to help a spoiled prince find his princess, she had a hard time due to his snobbish and ignorant mother quizzing all the princesses.


His character is so random. I couldn’t believe how amazing and simple it was to fall in love with this book. I have power born of passion. After reading about Kendra I can understand where she is coming from. Kendra Chronicles Series not Linked on Goodreads. We get multiple fairy tale retellings but that was just it. From Beastly to A Kiss in Timeeach of her book kept me engrossed in pages, Bewitching was no exception.

Weak excuse to have her life story told. I could feel her emoitons, but then as soon as that moment was gone and Kendra and Co. I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Losing yourself in a new kind of fairytale retelling, Bewitching is kind of story you will continue reading and finish with a huge smile in your face. I was disappointed but it’s okay. I don’t know how she does it, but I appreciate the amount of effort she placed in this book especially how she tried to incorporate bits and pieces of history to make the book seem more realistic.

Lists with This Book. Well, I’m happy to report that When I picked this up, I was hoping it wouldn’t suck.

It features the witch who had turned the boy into a beast in Beastly. I always feel kind of sad and empty when I finish reading a really good book, because it is over, and I have to leave the world that it created in my mind. She’s a typical teenager with a gorgeous evil stepsister, Lisette. Thats just me though, Lisette’s blackmail was lame. Except me, I despise Lisette to the max!

So I’m a bit jealous to those who won a copy while I bought my own. Because of these small factors i felt i alxe relate to Emma a lot. I felt like the book’s really about Emma with Kendra playing a big supporting role.


The story starts off with Kendra’s back round. When finally she does, the story takes a delightfully surprising twist. Instead she is seriously barely mentioned. Now is the story of Lisette and Emma.

BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn | Kirkus Reviews

Bewitching, re-telling classic tales through the eyes of the witch, breathes new life into these stories and shows us to quote my favorite witch What if the fairy tales we all grew up on got it wrong? I hate stories where the beautiful girl is a real jerk. In between the main story told by Emma, Kendra narrates several mini-stories Princess and the Pea It would have been the same story if they weren’t there, honestly.

I later learned that my mom tossed it out aalex she was cleaning my drawers. After a whole novel, the expectations of this novel were never reached and it left me feeling a bit confused of the fact of what was I suppose to get out of this? Even Bewiyching was more likable because at least, she tries to be nice to her evil step sisters, wakes up early in the morning and does her chores with grace and a smile, singing happily… Emma just drowns herself in self-pity and resentment.

I haven’t read any books by this author before- what was I thinking? See all 8 questions about Bewitching…. In the beginning Kendra is a mere mortal trying to save her only living family member from the plague.
