Wednesdays In the Tower-A Book Review

14 May

To read my book review of the first story in this series (which will probably make this make more sense!), click here.

Hey:) Guess what???!!!! I’m finally doing a book review of the sequel to one of my favorite books ever! Enjoy…

Wednesdays in the Castle by Jessica Day George 

What in the world are you supposed to do when the Castle you live in is constantly taking away or adding rooms, hallways, or towers and seems to have it’s own mind?

When Princess Celie finds a new tower with a mysterious giant egg in it, she has no idea what to expect! Soon she’s caring for a pet griffin that she has to keep secret, also she has to figure out why the Castle has been acting so weird lately, and she has to deal with a mysterious visiting wizard, who doesn’t want Celie to learn anything about the Castle’s history! Can Celie keep on hiding her new pet, and try to save the castle?

My Thoughts: I’ve been waiting to read this for what feels like forever, so you can imagine my excitement when I ripped open a package on Friday, and found this! After diving into the story of Celie and her beloved Castle, I was immediately sucked in to the world of griffins, magic, and creepy old wizards who try to take away your favorite character’s stuff! (Sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself…)  Anyways, my point is that I LOVED this book! (Which is to be expected, since Jessica Day George is one of my favorite authors, and I also LOVED Tuesdays at the Castle, but…) Moving on, the writing was superb as always; full of whimsical adventures and characters, plus original and creative ideas. The beginning starts off with a bang, goes into an eventful, intriguing, (sometimes complicated middle) and finishes with a great, yet torturing ending! Speaking of the ending, that cliff hanger is so, so, so…umm…cliff hanger-like! Now, the next book in this series better be ready, or I think I’ll die of suspense! Don’t worry, I’m joking, but I still just want to read the next book so badly!!!! (Cue dramatic music:))

Anyways, before I continue to ramble on about how much I want (no, need!) Jessica Day George to write her next book, I’ll talk about the characters. Celie was such a memorable one in the first story, so I was really looking forward to reading about her again this time, and she didn’t disappoint at all! She was still her adventurous, caring, silly self, but for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on she was even more entertaining. She was so sweet with Rufus, and had quick reflexes when she went to investigate the Castle “Eye.” I also thought that it was a good choice to show Bran’s character more in this book because you didn’t get to see his personality in the last story, though I did miss some of the other characters, like Rolf, Lilah, and Pogue because they were more interesting and important in the last book, but weren’t featured very much this time.

Continuing with my thoughts about the characters, Wizard Arkwright was my least favorite one of all. He was so mysterious, evil, and clever, but I still can’t wait to see what happens with the rest of his story. I also can’t wait to see what else happens with Rufus and the other griffins. Overall, I give this book five stars out of five for being a wonderful fantasy story, that leaves you in suspense!

Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt

I love Pinkberry’s frozen yogurt! All the flavors are so delicious, and I can never decide which toppings I want because there’s so many! It’s a lot of fun to mix them all up, (I like the strawberries and chocolate covered pretzels the most,) and I can’t wait to see which combination I’ll try next! Anyways, next week, the company is  launching a new flavor, Cookies ‘n’ Cream, that I’m eagerly awaiting to try:)

Wednesdays in The Tower!!!!

There’s only 9 days left till the day of Wednesdays in the Tower’s release!!!!!! As many of you know, I’m a very enthusiastic Jessica Day George fan, and Tuesdays at The Castle is one of my favorite books ever, so it makes sense that I’m practically shaking with eagerness for this story! The plot seems to be that Princess Celie discovers a new room in the castle, (no surprise there) and she finds a mysterious egg inside, but she would never have guessed what would hatch out of it…Yay!!! I just can’t wait to find out what happens in Celie’s next adventure, but luckily to keep me busy while I wait, I just found a short holiday story that Jessica Day George wrote about the Castle Glower family!

Yoga

For a school project, I made a poster about yoga yesterday, and I haven’t actually thought about how interesting it is before now! It dates back over 500 years ago, and there are lots of different types. Plus, there are tons of poses that you can learn and master! I really like doing it because it’s fun, relaxing, good exercise, and it’s challenging at some points, but simple at others!

Good Luck Charlie Season 4 Premiere!

Good Luck Charlie is one of my favorite Disney Shows that’s on right now, and its fourth season is premiering today! I loved the other three seasons, and the acting is awesome, so I look forward to seeing what happens next. In the last season’s finale, the Duncan family’s house was destroyed after being eaten by termites, and it left off with them staying in a hotel. After reading up on spoilers, I learned that the muppets are guest starring, so it’s sure to be an entertaining episode:)
