    I enjoyed the magic in Wench ? the simple fact that it was fraught with amateur magicians made it laughable and believable. I particularly liked the side-effects of practicing magic without knowing the consequences is known as junkoff. If you cast a spell to procure an item (gold, wa...

    DNF @ 35% I guess this was supposed to be a fierce feminist fantasy but instead what I trudged through were events pulled along at an insane pace, a plethora of forgettable characters, and really none of what the blurb touts this book as having. ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Wench by Maxine Kaplan is a fun younger YA feminist fantasy that follows a character type that we rarely ever get to see lead their own story in the genre. Tanya is a tavern wench. She may not be the chosen one, a pr...

    Cover > Book. The premise for Wench was a good one, but unfortunately the book didn?t live up to expectations. I was expecting something akin to perhaps Daughter of the Pirate King, but this one lacks that level of cleverness and the humor misses most of the time. The ma...

    DNF @ 29% Nothing wrong with this one, but for now it failed to keep my attention. I loved the setup of Wench and Tanya, the no-nonsense protagonist who is determined to get her tavern back at all costs. From the very beginning the plot was fast-paced, and scenes, moods and all...

    I wanted to love this book but I just didn't. The concept of the fantasy world was cool, but I didn't really like the characters and found the story overly confusing for the most part. While twists and turns in a plot are fun, this wasn't so much twists and turns as it w...

    Setting aside at 53%. This book had a lot of promise, but sadly the pacing and flow were too bizarre for me. So much happens and so many characters were introduced in the first half that just as I would get accustomed to what was happening, it would go in a different direction. Thi...
