January has been so busy and going by way too fast, so I haven’t been able to read all of the books on my TBR. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to promote books that look amazing. Today is my spot of the tour for Wench hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours. Keep on reading to find out more about this book, the author and a tour giveaway!
Wench by Maxine Kaplan

Content warning: Some magic in the book involves self-harm.
A funny, fiercely feminist YA epic fantasy—following the adventures of a tavern wench
Tanya has worked at her tavern since she was able to see over the bar. She broke up her first fight at 11. By the time she was a teenager she knew everything about the place, and she could run it with her eyes closed. She’d never let anyone—whether it be a drunkard or a captain of the queen’s guard—take advantage of her. But when her guardian dies, she might lose it all: the bar, her home, her purpose in life. So she heads out on a quest to petition the queen to keep the tavern in her name—dodging unscrupulous guards, a band of thieves, and a powerful, enchanted feather that seems drawn to her. Fast-paced, magical, and unapologetically feminist, Wench is epic fantasy like you’ve never seen it before.
I haven’t reviewed Wench yet, but there are a lot of amazing bloggers and bookstagrammers on this tour that have. To see all of the other posts, click here for the full schedule.
