Finally, the novel itself. I didn’t get back to it until I had my first daughter, Katie. When finally she does, the story takes a delightfully surprising twist. What Flinn does to it bewitcning not. Next, the writing style.

Book Review: Bewitching by Alex Flinn – Tyrone Eagle Eye News

At this Gingedbread house lives an old witch who cooks children, who eat her house, into gingerbread fence posts. I even grew up around them when my cousin was babysitting a ton of kids.

This entertaining twist on “Cinderella” centers on a centuries-old witch who sometimes helps her friends. Emma is a smart normal girl, and feels everything is going ok till one day someone new comes to live in her home.

I feel like I am a lot like her. From the characters POV in the stories Kendra recants we get a feeling for their lives and their times, but what I love the most was the retelling and manipulating of classic fairy tale From Beastly to her own series, Kendra is a witch on her own mission in life. Emma tries not to take advantage of Kendra’s powers as her own personal fairy godmother which is a really nice touch.


She was mentioned around five, six times and all she gets are flashbacks and momentary lapses. Y finalmente volvemos con Emma y Lisette y nos quedamos con ellas. It gathers a lot of inspiration from children’s fairy tales with a modern, tween twist. The plot of the book is WAY too fast paced. Will her efforts turn out as tragically as it did with a certain mermaid?

While reading Bewitching I really grew to fkinn Kendra. When alec other kids were on Book 20, I was on Book 1!

BEWITCHING by Alex Flinn | Kirkus Reviews

It was so fun to see those stories tied into a piece of historical fiction. It wasn’t fair what she had done to Emma, I get that she was upset that she lost her father and he bewwitching stolen from her at a young age. Because of these small factors i felt i could relate to Emma a lot. Or will she be able to change a life for the better, as she did with the Beast? Leaving behind the so called Cinderella story in pages, welcome to the modern world where a little drama, few tear drops and manipulation is enough bewitchinv make you princess of thousand hearts.


This was supposed to be a Kendra book, where she is our main protagonist or at least she has a big part as a side character. Alex Flinn has some great talent to adapt the story from our favorite childhood fairy tales, twisted and blended it in modern contemporary society, representing a new kind of fantasy both young and adults will fall in love with.

I didn’t brwitching care for the Prince story though he is such a mama’s boy, I liked the princess and the pea though, I liked that she is so sure of who she is and doesn’t care what other people think, she can’t marry a prince that can’t stand to his own mother.

This is where the story gets real good. Nov 09, Soumi rated it really liked it Shelves: Bewitching is mostly about Kendra’s adventures since her discovery from the plague in London. Warner just became a puppet — a stupid, ignorant one at that and it made me wince every time I read about him.
