Waiting On Wednesday (15)


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
This week I am waiting for:
Bewitching (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.
A bunch of fairy tales + A beautiful cover + An awesome character + An author I love = I'm there:)

Oh great pick I'm really curious about this one. I enjoyed Beastly but I didn't love it so I'm wondering how this one will be like.
