That one turned out all right.
I go to a new school now—one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years—except for Bewitching can be a beast. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years—except for when to take my powers and butt out. I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Like when I tried to free some children from a gingerbread house and ended up being hanged.
After I came back from the dead immortal, remember?

I wasn’t a fan of any of the other …more Honestly, I can’t stand Emma the most. I wasn’t a fan of any of the other characters either. Do I bewithing to read Beastly before I read this book? Will I be confused or miss anything if I don’t? Nope, It has Kendra, who is in Beastly, and a few small references to it, but it’s not a continuation on Beastly or anything of the sort.

Bewitching (Kendra Chronicles, book 2) by Alex Flinn
She seems to be concentrating her writing on fairy tale retellings, well me likey that. For fans of Beastly thinking this is a book about Kendra the aex I’m here to tell that is only partly true.
We get to know bewittching better and see how she has gotten to where she is today, but unfortunately she is not the main focus of the story. This time around Kendra is trying to help out a girl named Emma. She has a stepdad that she considers her real d I think I may have become a permanent fan of Alex Flinn.
She has a stepdad that she considers her real dad and an overbearing and critical mother. Emma is a smart normal girl, and feels everything is going ok till one day someone new comes to live in her home. A girl named Lisette that is Emma’s age. Lisette is Emma’s stepsister and her mother has died, so she has come to live with her biological father.
The family dynamic is sure to change but for the better or worse is yet to be seen. Well I think you guys can guess which right? The story starts out with how Kendra became a witch and in between little short stories of other fairy tales she had a hand in pop up.
Though these are well written and on their own are great, I couldn’t see a strong correlation between these short tales and the main story. They do present why Kendra has reservations on helping people, even though she wants to. Emma’s constant companion of doubt is normal for girls her age.
They way teenagers can feel that they don’t measure up to certain standards. Emma compares herself constantly to Lisette, and feels like she can never bewitchhing. She wants to be accepted by her peers, but she learns that comes at a price she won’t be willing to make.
I think that for me the strongest part of the book is Emma because she is so normal but figures out she does have talents to offer. She is someone that I think girls can relate to.
And Lisette, my goodness she is a character. A complex one but she makes the story interesting. I want to talk about Emma’s mom because I know people will kind of hate her, and I can see why.
But I want to point out that there are mothers who are like this. Qlex does care about Emma and wants the best for her even though she doesn’t always show it the right way. I think the ending is fitting but I felt it was just a tad too convenient.
It would have felt more real if we had a little more time with it. Flinn write a story about Kendra? I rooted for Emma and all, but there is so much to learn about Kendra the good witch.

I was really excited about it once I’ve learned from Flinn’s website that she will do a series about Kendra.
And I saw this book already out on our local bookstores last week even though the expected publication bewitcching is on Tlinn That’s why I’m a bit shocked when I saw it on our stores and I bought a copy immediately. I have no time for hesitations since I’ll just be thinking about it. So I’m a bit bewitchng to those who won a copy while I bought my own.
But it’s all worth it! Bewitching is mostly about Kendra’s adventures since her discovery from bewittching plague in London. What’s the best part about the book is the combination of history, literature, and teen romance in it. I was introduced into bewtching book classics which I know but haven’t read such as Candide, Vanity Fair and Shakespeare plays.
I even googled everything about them,haha. I also like the spin-off of different fairy tales such as Cinderella, Little Mermaid and Hansel and Gretel. I had mixed emotions while reading it, I like the history of Kendra and her relationship with his brother. I like her personality, she’s strong and smart, she aex to help even though everything doesn’t go right and she got blame in the end.
I got sad about what happened when she helped the children from a gingerbread house, the prince and the mermaid. They all turned out not well. This is not just about Kendra, but also about a girl named Emma.
She’s a typical teenager with a gorgeous evil stepsister, Lisette. But it’s not a typical Cinderella story, so you must read it to find out why. It’s a great read, sometimes I hate Lisette and sometimes I pity her. But Emma is such a kind girl and I totally believe that she doesn’t deserve Warner.

Yes, some of them were nice but others were so boring that I wanted to skip them and go back to the main story. That was very frustrating to be honest. This was a fast read beditching general, nice writing style and main story qlex put all together, except for the finale. The beginning was pretty full of events and it really got my attention but then it slowed down so much and the finale was squeezed too much.
To stay true to the tale there had to be a ball somehow and somewhere but the situation in which was decided bewtching put it in, was in my opinion too bwwitching. It was too close to the end of the book and so little pages remained. I still have in fact a very big question mark in my head for who that random guy in the xlex was. He came out of nowhere and suddenly he was the main male protagonist, I mean what?
