Latest review on YABC:

I reviewed Beheld by Stephanie Scott at YA Books Central

Guys, if you are a fan of retellings then you have to check this one out! It features four well-known fairy tales set in different time periods, up until modern day, and each retelling is awesome and could very much well stand on their own. And I love that these were all within Kendra's (a witch) own story! So good, definitely recommend. Oh, and despite that it's part of a series (book 4) in can be read as a standalone. ;)

Here's the book's summary:
#1 New York Times bestselling YA author Alex Flinn is back with magical twists on four fairy-tale favorites, each featuring a little help from Kendra, the witch from Beastly, as she searches through cities and centuries for her lost love.

Being a powerful witch, Kendra has survived it all. Since she first beheld James over three hundred years ago, Kendra has tangled with witch hunters and wolves, helped a miller’s daughter spin straw into gold, cowered in London as German bombs fell, and lived through who knows how many shipwrecks. But her powers have limits, and immortality can be lonely. Kendra isn’t ready to stop searching for the warlock she had met centuries ago.

With the help of her magic mirror, Kendra will travel the world to reconnect with her lost love—and, of course, she can’t help but play a hand in a few more stories along the way.

Featuring retellings of favorite fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and The Ugly Duckling, Alex Flinn’s latest young adult novel, Beheld, is fresh fairy-tale fun from beginning to end.
