Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George

About the book:
"Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celia's favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing to itself. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one - other than Celia, that is - takes time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and reportedly killed, it's up to Celia with her secret knowledge of the Castle's many twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom."

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!
I purchased this book and did not receive any compensation for this review.
