Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George

Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celie's favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one-other than Celie, that is-takes the time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and their fate is unknown, it's up to Celie, with her secret knowledge of the castle's never-ending twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom. This delightful book from a fan- and bookseller-favorite kicks off a brand-new series sure to become a modern classic.

Tifferz Take-
Jessica Day Georges latest book is one not to be missed. I think the cover is very cute! I consumed this story in one night! Join Celie her sister Lulath, her brother Rolf on a astonishing adventure through the Glower castle. Who do you trust when trusted counsellors have been plotting against you? I liked trying to figure out how things would turn out. Jessica does weaves a magical tale. I felt the conclusion of the story was a little rushed. I also know this a the first of a three book series. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book. This book is geared to middle graders but I loved it and think any open minded adult would love it as well. Great job Jessica on yet another excellent story.
This was an arc.

Boppers take-
Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George Is an amazing book, I LOVED it. It is a mystery (kind of a murder) with the tiniest hints of romance and other good elements of writing such as humor and suspense. Although this book is one of my new favorites I think the ending to this book was a bit rushed, I mean it wrapped up the story but I think that Jessica could have done a better job.

Crystals take-
Tuesdays at the Castle is the newest book by author Jessica Day George. This exciting new book, geared toward children, was a wonderful read for me as an adult. The story takes place in a castle that is magical and constantly changing its structure. It lengthens its hallways, adds new rooms and staircases too. It even changes the location of rooms! The characters are the royal children, Rolf, Lilah, and Celie. Celie is the main character and loves the castle! She knows it best and maps it’s changes and where everything is located.
This Jessica Day George book is one you don’t want to miss! Join Celie and her siblings on this roller-coaster journey through this amazing castle! You won’t want to miss the laughter, the danger, the tears! Celie will take you on a journey through the castle and show you how she isn’t just your average eleven year old! She and her siblings are put to the test when their parents go missing and those meant to protect and help them are not what they appear to be.
I loved this book and I couldn’t put it down! I stayed up reading it and had it finished in less than a day. Jessica weaves a story of magic, wonder, and keeps you guessing until the end! A wonderful addition to her previous successful novels; this is one you don’t want to miss! Bravo Jessica, please write many more!
