Be careful what you wish for...Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills—which unforunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it's up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn't marry the Prince.But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, and falling house (well this is a fairy tale, after all). The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster-godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power-hungry counterpart who'll stop at nothing to achieve a proper "happy ending"—even if it means destroying a kingdom.

4.0 Witches Abroad ★★★★☆
More fun with Granny Weatherwax & friends as they travel to foreign parts to stop a fairy godmother from making people have happily ever afters, whether it’s wanted or not. Loved it.

‘We’re her godmothers,’ said Granny. ‘That’s right,’ said Nanny Ogg. ‘We’ve got a wand, too,’ said Magrat. ‘But you hate godmothers, Mistress Weatherwax,’ said Mrs Gogol. ‘We’re the other kind,’ said Granny. ‘We’re the kind that gives people what they know they really need, not what we think the...

4.0 Review: Witches Abroad (Discworld Book 13 of 53ish)
This is the third book in the Witches subseries of Discworld. The last time I enjoyed a Discworld book this much was when I read the second Witches book, Wyrd Sisters. I’m not sure if I’m far enough into Discworld to proclaim my favorite subseries yet, but Witches is the top contender. As with th...

3.5 Enjoyed It Better Than Wyrd Sisters, But...
"Witches Aboard" follows the Lancre coven across the Disc to the Big Easy, well Terry Pratchett's version of the Bayou, as they attempt to save the day by not allowing the servant girl to marry the Prince. The happily-ever-after and fairy godmother tropes do not survive either Pratchett or Granny We...

4.5 Witches Abroad (Discworld, #12)
We follow Granny, Nanny, and Magrat as they travel to Genua and subvert the narratives of all the stories they encounter on their way. This one gets extra points for the "pray" exchange, some Granny awesomeness, and a solid ending (well, as solid as you're going to get in a swamp, anyway). Plus some...
