Waiting on Wednesday #35

***"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.***

Bewitching
(Kendra Chronicles)
by Alex Flinn
Publication Date: February 14th, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen
Kendra Hilferty, the witch who curses Kyle Kingsbury in Beastly, tells about her immortal existence-how she discovered she was a witch and the various ways she has used her powers to help people throughout the centuries. (Unfortunately her attempts have often backfired.) As it turns out, Kendra has actually had a hand in "Hansel and Gretel," "The Princess and the Pea," and "The Little Mermaid"-but these are not the fairy tales you think you know! Kendra's reminiscences are wrapped around a real-time version of "Cinderella," except the "ugly" stepsister is the good guy. With dark twists, hilarious turns, and unexpected endings, Bewitching is a contemporary read for fairy-tale lovers, fantasy fans, and anyone looking for more Alex Flinn. (Goodreads)

Why am I Waiting on this book???

I read Beastly earlier this year, and really enjoyed it. Bewitching is about Kendra, the witch in Beastly that turns Kyle into a beast. I am really fascinated with Kendra's character, and would love to know more about her. :)


What are you WoWing for this week???

  3. I can't believe I haven't actually written anything by Alex Flinn yet even though his novels sound amazing! And this one sounds especially intriguing. I'll definitely need to get copies of his novels soon.

    Thanks for sharing,

  14. I have not read the Beastly series. I LOVE this cover and the plot. I hope the cover stays the same because if it does...it's definitely going down as my all-time fave.
