  1. NOTE If you would like to contact me, please visit my Facebook, Twitter, or website or e mail me alixwrites aol , but DO NOT MESSAGE ME THROUGH While I have a bio on as a service to my readers, I do not visit on a regular basis Like literally twice a year.Okay, bio.I was born on Long Island and grew up on a street called Salem Court This probably influenced my interest in witches It also means I can t use that as a password or security question and no, I won t tell you my first pet s name When I was five years old, my mom said that I should be an author I guess I must have nodded or something because, from that point on, every poem I ever wrote in school was submitted to Highlights or Cricket magazine I was collecting rejection slips at age seven I learned to read early But I compensated for this early proficiency by absolutely refusing to read the programmed readers required by the school system workbooks where you read the story, then answered the questions When the other kids were on Book 20, I was on Book 1 My teacher, Mrs Zeiser, told my mother, Alexandra marches to her own drummer I don t think that was supposed to be a good thing Nonetheless, I learned how to read, and my second grade teacher, Dr Gross, was much cooler He was the one who handed me a copy of Ellen Tebbits and said, I think you re ready for this I didn t know what that meant, but I was VERY EXCITED.My family moved to Miami when I was in middle school I had a really hard time making friends, so I spent a lot of time reading and writing then But unlike Christopher Paolini or Amelia Atwater Rhodes, I never finished writing a novel Note to teen writers It s okay not to finish your novel in high school That was also when I learned to be a keen observer By high school, I d made some friends and gotten involved in various gifted and talented performing arts programs I studied opera in college I m a coloratura the really loud, high pitched sopranos and then went to law school.It was law school that probably helped with my first novel Breathing Underwater deals with the serious and all too common problem of dating violence I based the book on my experiences interning with the State Attorney s Office and volunteering with battered women I thought this was a really important topic, as 27 percent of teenage girls surveyed have been hit by a boyfriend I m happy that the book is so popular, and if you are reading this bio because the book was assigned for school, I m happy about that too There is a companion to Breathing Underwater, in Caitlin s viewpoint It is called Diva.I started writing an early and laughable version of Breathing Underwater in college I was really bored on a car trip with my parents I later learned that my mom tossed it out when she was cleaning my drawers Thanks, Mom I didn t get back to it until I had my first daughter, Katie I m self taught I went to the library and took out books on writing Then, I read a lot of young adult novels by writers I admired I write my first drafts longhand, then I type them.I think I write for young adults because I never quite got over being one In my mind, I am still 13 years old, running laps on the athletic field, wearing this really baggy white gymsuit I m continually amazed at the idea that I have a checking account and a mortgage So I try to write books that gymsuit girl might enjoy It s a way of going back to being thirteen knowing what I know now.Right now, I live half a mile away from my old middle school, in Palmetto Bay, a suburb of Miami, with my husband, daughters, dogs, and cats.

  2. I think I may have become a permanent fan of 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 witch I m here to tell that is only partly true We get to know her 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 dad a [...]

  3. WOW I absolutely love this book It totally deserves to go in my favorite shelf This is the best book of Alex Flinn so far, but I also love her Beastly and A kiss in time 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 date is on Feb 14 That s why I m a bit shocked when I saw it on our stores and I bought a copy immediately I have no ti [...]

  4. 2.5 5The problem I had with this book was that the main story is cut than once because there are some random retellings throughout it.The main story is a Cinderella retelling and I loved the beginning The whole part where there s this evil sister Lisette now orphan that stays at Emma s and they are forced to interact because now they are sisters, I enjoyed those pages a lot and I thought that after the prologue of Kendra s origins it was time then to dig into her present story.Wrong.This was su [...]

  5. When I picked this up, I was hoping it wouldn t suck That s all JustPlease Don t Suck I have a love hate relationship with fairytales and retellings Most of the time the books aren t that good, but I can t seem to stop myself from snatching up the next one I see in the high hopes that this one will be better.And Alex Flinn Well, I like the fact you she updates the stories, but I haven t always liked everything she s written.Beastly Yes.A Kiss in Time Nooooo.Well, I m happy to report that Bewitch [...]

  6. Where to start, where to start Let me just start off by sayig this book was just the type of book I love to read Of course I am a firm believer in fairy tales and love how Alex Flinn spices it up a bit and modernizes it up too Ok some spoilers may come so if you want to know nothing at all from the book I suggest you stop reading now The book starts off with Kendra as a young girl living in the 1600s about the time of the plague Her whole family dies from it, except her little brother whom she s [...]

  7. I loved the flashbacks to the Titanic and Little Mermaid and to King Louis They were super fun My favorite, though, was the beginning with the witch s gingerbread house So fun

  8. Posibles spoilers de La m scara de la muerte roja Hansel y Gretel La princesa y el guisante La Sirenita La CenicientaBueno, esperaba descubrir algo m s acerca de la bruja Kendra de Beastly motivo que se repite en varios reviewers , de modo que me gust la primera parte, acerca de su pasado view spoiler hide spoiler Y hasta cierto punto me gust el retelling de Cenicienta, y eso de dar vuelta la idea de la hermanastra Stepmothers get a bum rap, just like witches.a pesar de que viene a ser una versi [...]

  9. Rating 2 5I picked up this book because I had read Beastly and thought it Beastly was an enjoyable book It features the witch who had turned the boy into a beast in Beastly Kinda Here we get to understand, Kendra, the witch We get to see her life and how she became a witch kinda While the story was engaging in some parts, most times it fell short of being interesting After a whole novel, the expectations of this novel were never reached and it left me feeling a bit confused of the fact of what w [...]

  10. What if the fairy tales we all grew up on got it wrong What if the evil step sisters weren t so bad, but cruelly manipulated by Cinderella What if the mermaid didn t get her happily ever after with her prince,but a tragic end What if the witch wasn t an evil shrew, but just a lonely girl who tries to help others, sometimes with disastrous results Bewitching, re telling classic tales through the eyes of the witch, breathes new life into these stories and shows us to quote my favorite witch, Alex [...]

  11. There s a story here, I guess, but this entire book was of a gimmick to capitalize on the Beastly movie unfortunately, which I saw, wasn t my choice, can t be of a captive audience than a passenger on a ten hour international flight than a real novel That s the only way of explaining the weird structure of this book, a main story from Emma s point of view interrupted by snide side stories about Kendra s past whenever she feels like interrupting.Actually, the structure s kind of clever, if the [...]

  12. THE FAERYS VIEWBewitching by Alex Flinn was FAN FAERY TASTIC Ms Flinn out did herself in this spectacular tale of my favorite witch Ms Flinn has written many successful remakes of classic faery tales each and every one of them a joy to read.Bewitching is Kendra Hilferty s tale You may remember Kendra best as the witch in Beastly when she cast the spell upon a boy making him as ugly on the outside as he was on the inside Kendra is centuries old and has lived an amazing life, most of it trying to [...]

  13. A finished unsolicited copy was provided by the publisher for review.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 [...]

  14. Ms Flinn, I love you This book is amazing I couldn t believe how amazing and simple it was to fall in love with this book Ms Flinn took another fairy tale making it so enjoyable that I just want to re read the book over and over again.So why did I love this book so much Well first off, it is not your average Cinderella story That s right It s a Cinderella re tale that is so awesome The story starts off with Kendra s back round I adored learning the history of Kendra She is not the mean witch eve [...]

  15. I got the book Bewitching free to review through It is a fantastic book I totally loved it It is well written and filled with humor, fantasy and a bit of romance Kendra Hilferty, a witch, tells how she found out she was a witch and how, kind of like Forrest Gump, she has been around for most of the major events in history Remember the witch who made the gingerbread house Kendra knew her While telling how she helped Ella, a modern day non wicked stepsister to deal with her rather wicked poor step [...]

  16. I read Beastly and Cloaked by Alex Flinn back in 2011 I still need to read A Kiss in Time , and loved them both 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 Going depth into her story was so much fun, and this book was simply wonderful.This novel was absolutely stunning Alex Flinn has weaved a modern fairy tale that left me brea [...]

  17. MY THOUGHTSLOVED ITIf you read Beastly, you will remember Kendra was the witch that had a very important supporting role Kendra is an immortal witch and her story starts out with a retelling of Hansel and Gretel my first two dachshunds where Kendra and her brother are the only survivors in her family after the plague wipes out most of her town The story weaves back and forth between a Cinderella in current times with bits and pieces of her earlier existence during the early 1700 and the French C [...]

  18. I loved this retelling, I felt like I got than I thought I would, 4 fairy tales in 1 book I was sad about how Kendra discovered who she really was, a witch, only she discovered this when she only had 1 family member left alive Charlie her little brother, I can t believe she had a twin but he died to the plague, just like her parents and other siblings, I liked the story of the gingerbread house and the witch that actually teaches her everything she now knows Lisette s and Emma s story, I liked [...]

  19. 3.5Alex Flinn es la autora de Beastly, y ste libro vendr a a ser algo as como un spin off historia derivada de otra No es necesario realmente leer Beastly antes, pero no da a porque hace un spoiler del final aunque tampoco es que esa novela tenga un final tan misterioso En este caso parece que la protagonista va a ser la bruja Kendra, y durante el principio de la historia lo es, pero lo cierto es que es m s un compilado de sus tiros por la culata aportes m gicos a las historias de otros personaj [...]

  20. Bewitching is a black and white tale of a good witch who isn t exactly good in being a witch and sometimes her magic go away from the expected course although her purpose were always good Yes, I m talking about Kenda, the witch who put curse on Kyle Kingsley and turned him into a beast to teach him some lessons of love and life Beastly wasn t her only curse, that was one of her many curses.The book was broke into several stories told from many point of views Each of them was a brief literary des [...]

  21. Bewitching is your typical Alex Flinn book well I ve only ever read Beastly so that might not be an accurate assumption It gathers a lot of inspiration from children s fairy tales with a modern, tween twist.I m going to be honest I was really looking forward to this because I really liked Kendra Hilferty s character in Beastly and I wanted to read about her life and her personality I was somewhat appeased but honestly, I was not satisfied The lack of Kendra disappointed me since after all, this [...]

  22. I really liked Kendra in this book, i didn t like the language in the beginning of the book, but thankfully the writing changes into the language we know So Kendra is a witch, and she likes to use her powers to help people in need She tries to help a spoiled prince find his princess, she had a hard time due to his snobbish and ignorant mother quizzing all the princesses You learn at the end that this is a retelling of the story of the princess and the pea This was one of Kendra s fails, due to u [...]

  23. Dies ist die Geschichte von den beiden Stiefschwestern Emma und Lisette Lisettes Mutter wurde vor Jahren von ihrem Mann verlassen Nun ist sie tot und Lisette lebt fortan bei ihrem Vater, seiner Frau und ihrer Stiefschwester Emma Die beiden M dchen sind vollkommen unterschiedlich Lisette ist in Armut aufgewachsen und ist bildsch n Emma ist blitzgescheit, eine Au enseiterin, weniger sch n und musste sich ber Geld nie Gedanken machen Das Verh ltnis der beiden Schwestern ist schwierig Als Emma sich [...]

  24. Alex Flinn how I love your writing This book was amazing I have read only Beastly Lindy s Diary , but that was when I fell in love with her stories Bewitching is so magically beautiful I love re tellings of classic fairy tales This being a re telling a Cinderella, with of course a twist You get to know history about Kendra The witch you first met in Beastly While reading Bewitching I really grew to like Kendra She is very misunderstood She is not mean, on purpose of course She has her reasons t [...]

  25. From Beastly to her own series, Kendra is a witch on her own mission in life Bewitching is just that, a beginning to know that fabulous person a lot I have to say that I loved her snark and her wins and looses in the witchery business and throughout every page there are fabulous times in store for readers 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 charac [...]

  26. I haven t read any books by this author before what was I thinking This was full of fairy tales and was such a satisfying fun book Bewitching starts with Kendra s childhood and how she became a witch It also talks about her involvement in the Hansel and Gretel story It was so fun to see those stories tied into a piece of historical fiction The main story surrounds two sisters who resemble a Cinderella story As that story progresses, Kendra breaks in with her thoughts about what is going on and b [...]

  27. Alex Flinn certainly did a good job of retelling some of the classic fairy tales we grew up with I don t know how she does it, but I appreciate the amount of effort she placed in this book especially how she tried to incorporate bits and pieces of history to make the book seem realistic.Honestly, I was pleased with the ending I like how in the end, there wasn t a need for Kendra to lift a finger just to help Emma One thing that left me feeling unsatisfied about this book, however, is that it di [...]

  28. If you remember Beastly that was written by this author, then you also remember the witch that was involved in that book named Kendra In Bewitching, we get to read about how Kendra became a witch and her life before Beastly What I loved about this book was the new twist on the fairy tales that author Alex Flinn does so well With the new take on some well known stories, the author takes you on an adventure of survival, love, magic and so much I absolutely loved Kendra in this book I loved how sh [...]
