I have power born of passion. She wants to be accepted by her peers, but she learns that comes at a price she won’t be willing to make. Alex Flinn 1 8 Sep 20, Nov 24, Coranne rated it it was amazing. The structure just blew me away, plus all the little things she threw in there like the classic literature and the real history references. Where was he during the past pages or so?

It was not a happily ever after and I found myself sad after reading it. I thought that Alex Flinn told the fairy-tales in such a great and modern way, and when I found out that this novel was coming out, I nearly had a panic attack because Kendra was my favorite character from Beastly! This is why Kendra has learned to be very careful who she chooses to help. To ask other readers questions about Bewitchingplease sign up.

Bewitching (Kendra Chronicles, #2) by Alex Flinn
I go to a new school now—one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. Maybe you’re thinking sure it could happen, a girl could fall for a guy like him in real life. What also makes this book really interesting is the use of older English where appropriate and then switching back to modern English in the parts that happen in the 21st century.
Yes, I understand the use of sentence fragments to emphasize the emotions of a scene, but I’m pretty sure that Flinn used it because she was lazy.
The other thing was that the book really wasn’t about Kendra, which having lived for hundreds of years, could be an intersting story. 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.
She sets out on a very long life journey in which she attempts to do good and help others. It totally deserves to go in my favorite shelf!
And when I was eight, I got my first rejection letter from Highlights Magazine. I didn’t think she was fair to him, knowing Lisette as she did.
It wasn’t fair what she had done to Emma, I get that she was upset that she lost her father and he was stolen from her at a young age. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
One thing that left me feeling unsatisfied about this book, however, is tha Alex Flinn certainly did a good job of retelling bewtiching of the classic fairy tales we grew up with.
Book Review: Bewitching by Alex Flinn – Tyrone Eagle Eye News
She thinks of herself as “not pretty”. Incorporated into the retellings were nods to real events in history and also bits of classic literature.
I absolutely love this book! This is not just about Kendra, but also about a girl named Emma.
My Thoughts On: Bewitching by Alex Flinn
Where to start, where to start? Nov 09, Soumi rated it really liked it Shelves: It does get better and in the end the story is only fairly satisfying. This being a re-telling a Cinderella, with of course a twist.
This is where the story gets real good. I want to talk about Emma’s mom because I know people will kind of hate her, and I can see why.
View all 4 comments. The children tell their parents what happen and Kendra and Charlie have to run for their life. Lisette is to into herself and making Emma pay for having the good life all those years.
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 to make you princess of thousand hearts.
After reading about Kendra I can understand where she is coming from. It was terrible and absolutely unprofessional. But Emma is such a kind girl and I totally believe that she doesn’t deserve Warner.
The love interest is very interesting. Journey of a Witch The book opens with a scene of England, where a teenage girl was mourning in grief for her family, killed in deadly plague.
