    One thought on “Foundling Witch”

    1. Diary of Anna the Girl Witch is a fun, albeit slightly dark middle grade mystery about a young girl discovering the magic within herself as she unravels a nefarious plot. The age recommendation for this is middle grade to young adult. I do find this to be a little too young for teens, but I think that this book is interesting enough for an adult to read to a child without either party being bored. The story teaches the importance of being kind and not acting out of revenge. Overall this is an in [...]

    2. Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner !I received this E-ARC via Helvetic House and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.DNFWhen I got the email from Netgalley that this book was available for 'Read Now' I immediately requested it!

    3. This is how a book for kids should be like, exciting, interesting, warm and thoughtful.The lessons about friendship, loyalty, the difference between good and evil, and that actions have consequences are old but are always welcomed when done right - which is what happens here.The characters are fun and interesting. Both kids and adult characters teach that appearances can be deceiving, and like we've heard a million times, we should not judge a book by its cover.The art is also beautiful, and the [...]

    5. Diary of Anna the Girl Witch: Foundling Witch is a fun and exciting middle grade adventure. I liked Anna from the start. She's an independent, confident, and good-hearted thirteen year old, who, during the course of the book, discovers that she is a witch and has all kinds of magical powers.

    6. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Diary of Anna the Girl Witch: Book 1 was a delightful middle-grade novel that was fast paced and entertaining. Realistic characters populated this book and Anna was a fantastic protagonist who was quick thinking and compassionate. Lovely illustrations enhance and add charm to the story. Will be continuing the series.

    7. A witch book, I have to say I have not outgrown witches. I think this book was a fun read. Anna finds out she is from a family of witches and powerful well known ones. Can be good and bad right? Check this book out to see what you think. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*

    8. Rating: 3.5/5A delightful change of reading genre for me with this brilliant story about thirteen year old Anna Sophia who was originally from Russia but is currently attending a private school whilst living in an orphanage run by nuns. Her thirteenth birthday brings surprise presents from her Mum, no news from her Uncle and amazing powers. She hadn’t known she was a witch, but as she starts to come into her powers she also discovers a terrible scheme which threatens her, her friends and other [...]

    9. This was quite the enjoyable read- I would recommend it for late elementary school and upwards. It tells the tale of Anna, a new teenager and, to her surprise, a new witch. Well, 'supernatural powers' would be a better description than 'witch' but nonetheless, a powers are powers. The charm of this book, however, is not the plotline itself, but the characters who go through the trials. Anna is not only a memorable character but I was also able to form an emotional connection with her. She is muc [...]

    10. Max Candee brings us another great story with "Diary of Anna the Girl Witch 1: Foundling Witch" and although the book is mainly for middle grade children, I found it very entertaining for all ages.The book, which is the first in the series, centers around Anna who, according to a story she was told by her uncle, was abandoned with a pack of bear cubs in the Russian wild. Anna ends up in an orphanage and while growing up, she comes to discover that she is not at all like the other girls, as she h [...]

    11. Fancifully fabricated with fiction, adventure and drama Max Candee’s ‘Diary of Anna the Girl Witch’ is a story full of twists and turns. It is not often that I pick up a fiction book which leaves me craving for more. What makes the book a favorite is a simple plotline with the flawless writing style and thoughtful descriptions to engage the readers. The journey begins with young Anna Sophia turning 13th. She was raised by her uncle, Misha who worked in Siberia and later brought up in an or [...]

    12. 3.5 starsThe Diary of Anna the Girl Witch: Foundling Witch started out as a lighthearted book about an almost 13 year old orphan girl who is get ready for a birthday party. What seems like a typical, school centered story about friendships and a coming of age story, soon grows into something darker when Anna finds out she is a witch and must come to terms with what magic might do to her soul if she allows herself to succumb to its darker side. This story gradually improved for me. I found the wr [...]

    13. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.Be kind, yes. But also be wary.It was too easy. Darkness and evil are easy. happiness takes work. Captivated by the book cover, I requested this book on Netgalley and expected magic and adventure. Oh gosh, this book is so much fun and I love how the author made a very heartwarming story for children to read. This is certainly not a long book and I got to finish it in one sitting. The characters are just wha [...]

    15. A baby found in a bear's den. The only information about her family is included in a locket around her neck. A trust fund that pays for her place in a private boarding school. It all seems very mysterious from the start, but then the suspense really kick in. It is Anna's thirteenth birthday and she receives a packet of odd things - a faded drawing, a card, and carving of a hand. At her birthday party, she is pretty sure that she saw everyone freeze in place, but no one else seems to have noticed [...]

    16. I received my copy of Diary of Anna as part of a member giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I could tell before I even opened the book that this was going to be one I'd enjoyed, as I've been a fan of stories about witches since I was a little girl. This particular story is a coming of age tale about an orphan named Anna Sophia, who finds out that she is actually a witch. The story is an easy read, and a page turner at that. I read the entire story very quickly and had a hard time putting [...]

    17. Foundling witch is a quick and easy read perfect reading to your kids or for them to pick up on their own. While it can get a little dark in subject matter it does so without a sense of menace that might scare children.The story is just different enough to keep my interest and when i reached the end of the book I was surprised with my desire to find out what happens to Anna in the next installment.If you're looking for a book with a little intrigue, a bit of mystery, and a lot of magic then i'd [...]

    18. I WAS SENT THIS BOOK BY THE AUTHOR3.5\5 stars I really really enjoyed this book! even though it is a middle grade book, I found it interesting and fast paced and everything that was happening just kept me intrigued! Anna-Sophia is a very well developed character and she's very funny and clumsy. the only doubt I have is about Beatrice's personality, I find it a little bit too childish for her age. I really cannot wait to read the second one!

    19. Very goodKept me interested all along. I will be wanting to see what happens next. Has good Morales to teach everyone

    20. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book was a little bit simplistic for me personally, but I know I'm not the target audience and I think that it would be very enjoyable for middle grade kids. I thought Anna was a great character and I liked how she always wanted to be kind, but not at the expense of being taken advantage of or letting other people get hurt. I liked that she kept a diary because she had read about Anne Frank in school even tho [...]

    21. *I received a digital ARC from Netgalley in exchange for anhonest review.3.5 stars This was an average read, Anna was really young and I did not like how she felt so older and mature. 'I realized there was something wonderful about being thirteen. I was old enough to get treated like an adult sometimes, but still young enough to play silly games with my friends.'Apart from (view spoiler)[being able to use her witch powers at this age,(hide spoiler)] I didn't see anything so special about it.I li [...]

    22. Initially I was tempted to read this book based on its premise and its beautiful cover. This middle school supernatural adventure novel follows a 13 year old girl as she learns about her newfound power as a witch. An orphan who learns of their magical powers while at a boarding school sounds familiar but Candee brings his own twist to Anna Sophia's powers and his plot.I wasn't smitten with this book right off the bat. The plot was a little slow to start, the writing felt overly simplified and I [...]

    23. When I was a little girl I loved everything fantasy/adventure and when it came to a strong child leading the way I was all for it. I know if I had read this book when I was little I would have adored it. Anna Sophia was found in a Bear den when she was an infant and taken in by a man she calls Uncle Misha. Due to unforeseen circumstances, he has to place her in an orphanage. A local husband and wife, Andre and Marie, have taken several orphans in the past and given them what appears to be a lovi [...]

    24. This is the first children's book I have reviewed on my blog, and I was pleasantly surprised with how the narrative drew me in. I had to keep in mind that the book was aimed at children/ young teens, but that being said, it was an innovative tale that I'm sure many parents would be happy to read to their children- that is if their kids don't think storytime is uncool *hehe*.The narrative has dark undertones and impresses morals upon the reader. Anna Sophia learns that she is a witch, and that he [...]

    25. Anna is an orphan who has been told that she grew up with bears before being found and 'rescued'. She discovers on her 13th birthday that she may have some magical gifts, and starts to learn more about her heritage while uncovering a dark plot happening in her neighbourhood.This is quite a cute, fairy tale story that reads easily and has some nice themes of how to try and find good rather than evil in everyday life. As the title suggests, there is a component of the story which is diary entries [...]

    26. This is an interesting coming-of-age story starring a girl Anna (obviously) and her misadventures. It turns that she have a magical power of sorts that basically let her slightly alter the very fabric of reality around her. One catch: this literally eats away at her soul. So the premise of the book and it's gorgeous cover had been what initially hooked me to the book, and then was the compelling narratives and character arcs that kept me turning the digital pages. It was really one of nicest mid [...]

    27. Thirteen year old Anna is sort of an orphan, at least she was living at an orphanage while her Uncle stayed in Siberia. She knows nothing about her parents or her background, just that she was found as a baby in a cave with bears, and that she inherited money from her mysterious parents. On her birthday her attorney gives her a letter from her mother and an artifact that turns out to be magical. Meanwhile, Anna's friend was adopted by a local family who adopts many children from the orphanage. E [...]

    28. I love books on the supernatural and reading the about the plot I thought it was going to be like Beautiful Creatures/ Charmed but it was more of a Children's book rather than Young Adult book. It took a couple of chapters for me to get into it and thought that this was down to the way it was written. The start seemed to be rushed (this may be due to it being a small book) but once it got the pace right I couldn't put this book down.I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because I felt it was to short a boo [...]

    29. Thank you to NetGalley and Max Candee via IBPA for providing me with a free copy of this book, Diary of Anna, The Girl Witch, in exchange for an honest review. I found this book completely charming. It would be a wonderful story for late Elementary school and older children. The main character, Anna Sophia, is precious and really lovely to learn about. Her character is well written and is extremely lovable. I enjoyed the "rabbit hole" this story pulled me through and really did not want the book [...]
