Waiting on Wednesday (July 27)


Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.

Bewitching by Alex Flinn
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.

Flinn is one of my favorite authors so I am really excited about this one. Fab pick.

I am looking forward to this one too. While I haven't read Cloaked, I liked A Kiss in Time and loved Beastly. I am interested in reading more about Kendra but after seeing the movie I hope I'll be able to picture someone else other than Mary Kate Olsen's creepy version of Kendra. Great pick!

I LOVED Beastly, but I'm not sure if I'll pick this one up since I wasn't a huge Kendra fan, especially after the movie!!!

Check out my WOW this week!
