Tuesdays at The Castle-A Book Review

8 Jan

Princess Celie, her sister Lilah, and her two brothers Bran and Rolf live in a Castle that grows a new room, hallway, or tower whenever it wants, mostly on Tuesdays. When Celie’s parents, the King and Queen go to pick up her brother Bran from college, she is left under the care of her two older siblings. When Celie, Lilah, and Rolf are expecting their family home, they get terrible news, their parents carriage had been ambushed, and their parents and brother were dead! Since Rolf was his father’s heir he would be declared king, while two princes were expected from two different countries, whom no one trusted. One day Celie finds a new tower which she names the spyglass tower, since she finds…duh, spyglasses. But then Celie finds out something horrible! One of the foreign princes is going to kill her brother and take over their country! Can Celie help save the day along with the help of her siblings, and the Castle, plus find out the truth about her parents?

My Thoughts: This might be my second favorite book, it is so awesome! The writing is amazing, and keeps you entertained throughout the whole book, and there are great characters! Celie was my favorite out of all of them because she was so courageous and funny, and I hope to read more about her in future books. Rolf, Lilah, and Pogue were really fun supporting characters with lots of distinctive traits.  Anyways, the writing in this book was so original, whimsical, and magical, with great description. The setting of the story was also really interesting, and I liked how the author talked about all of the different rooms in the castle, (my favorite is the one with the bouncy floor!), and gave examples about how the Castle seemed to be able to think for itself. Overall, this was an amazing book,  (I read it in two nights! It would have been one, but I had play practice:)), and I totally give this book five out of five stars.
