Bewitching can be a beast. . . .

Once, I put a curse on a beastly and arrogant high school boy. That one turned out alright. Others didn't.

I go to a new school now—one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. I'm not still here because I'm stupid; I just don't age.

You see, I'm immortal. And I pretty much know every-thing 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 tried to play matchmaker for a French prince and ended up banished from France forever. And that little mermaid I found in the Titanic lifeboat? I don't even want to think about it.

Now a girl named Emma needs me. I probably shouldn't get involved, but her gorgeous stepsister is conniving to the core. I think I have just the thing to fix that girl—and it isn't an enchanted pumpkin. Although you never know what will happen when I start . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't take it off my shelf... It's earned it's spot This book shows fairy tales in a new light. It has lot's of little stories in it all based on the fairy tales. The new perspective is wonderful and gripping. The end of the stories are often emotional in some way, but teach you that not everything is happily ever after.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loveee In the beginning Kendra is a mere mortal trying to save her only living family member from the plague. Her parents, her sister are all dead. With help from a rumor that a witch can save her brother she goes to seem her out only to find out she?s gone. In an effort to save her brother Charlie she grabs some herbs from the witch?s garden and makes some medicine for him. Like a miracle he survives and they entire out of their village. Along the way she finds a house made out of gingerbread. This is only the beginning of her tale, but the main story revolves around Lisette and Emma. The writing is fast paced and I absolutely loved Emma. Now here?s a character who is not beautiful for once. Whose looks are plain and simple, and she?s a rather voracious reader herself! I still don?t understand why Emma thinks her looks matter so much. I hated how she would say Lisette was always beautiful. Beauty is found on the inside as well and she definitely had no inner beauty. Gah as for Lisette! Seriously wanted to punch her. Everyone knows she was being a fake but Emma being too trysting and kind thought the best in her which was a lie. I had such a fab time reading this book! Little known tales like Hansel and Gretal, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid all spun into this one little book. I also love how the magic mirror made its appearance!. Mind you, they are sub chapters in the book that divides these fairy tales, but they?re not as intrusive as I thought it would be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet and Funny The Good Stuff A delightfully sweet and funny read Kendra is an intriguing and likeable character Like the twists on the fairy tales as nothing is stereotypical which makes it an interesting and never boring read. Nice realistic character development Things are never cut and dried, so no one is truly evil or truly good which I liked Makes me want to read Beastly which I picked up at Word on the Street but haven't had a chance to read yet Love the introduction, it hooks you in and makes you laugh Geeked out about the Titanic subplot Loved the relationship between Kendra and Emma Simply a lovely way to spend a couple of hours escaping from reality and I will be looking for more of Flinn's works to enjoy (Beastly just moved up on the TBR shelf) The Not So Good Stuff I actually prefer the ARC cover, but this one is nice too (the actual cover actually looks closer to the description of Kendra) Storyline jumps around a little with the sub-stories which can be a little disjointing to read Would have liked more of Kendra's actual story Favorite Quotes/Passages "If you read fairy tales, and who doesn't, you might believe there are witches all over the place - witches baking children into gingerbread, making princesses sleep hundreds of years, even turning normal teenage boys into hideous beasts to teach them a lesson. But, actually, there are only a few of us. The reason it doesn't seem like that is because we're pretty long-lived. We live hundreds of years, as long as we don't find ourselves fueling a bonfire." "Did you know that in West African folklore, manatees are considered sacred?" When I shook my head, Warner said, "It's true. And in days of old, sailors used to mistake them for mermaids." "Sailors must have been pretty hard up for female companionship, huh?" "So we were all quite happy. (Kendra's note: except for the helpful witch, who was still banished)" Who Should/Shouldn't Read Those who need a light fun read I imagine if you liked her other books, you will like this one -- but this is my first book by Flinn so I'm just guessing here Fans of Fairy Tale based books will obviously enjoy If you like dark, twisted, non stop action, this will probably not be your thing 4 Dewey's I received this from the Ontario Blog Squad Tweet Up
