Waiting On Wednesday (15) - Bewitching

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

Title: Bewitching
Author: Alex Flinn
Published: Harper Teen
Publisher: 14th March 2012
Series: Kendra Chronicles #1

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. - From Goodreads

This is the story of Kendra (the witch from Beastly) and how she had a hand in a lot of the fairytales we know today. If you remember from Beastly though Kendra was not the best of witches and made a lot of mistakes, so I think this book will bee looking at how stories like Cinderella resulted from one of her mistakes.

It sounds exactly like the kind of thing I enjoy!!
