Tuesdays At The Castle by Jessica Day George
Describe it in 25 words or less. With her parents missing in a bandit ambush, Celie must turn to her enchanted castle to stop evil Prince Kelsh from stealing the throne.
Any particular reason for choosing this book? Morgan had read it last year and it sounded interesting.
Genre: Adventure/Children’s Fantasy
Who was your favorite character and why? Rolf because he had the rare ability to tease and play around but turn serious when he had to. He also was smart and handy to have around in tough situations.
Who was your least favorite character and why? Prince Kelsh of Vhervhine because he was evil.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? Was it worth the wait? It took a little while but not that long. It turned out to increase in suspense as it went on. Also, there were small sparks of humor dotted about in the suspense. In all the horrible situations, you just wanted to read on to see what happened next and with all the funny or good parts, you wanted to read on to see how long it lasted.
What did you think of the ending? Satisfying in several ways and unsatisfying in several others.
What was the moral of the story? To always have hope.
Prince Lulath of Grath: “You are the very bravest of the girls.”
Celie: “No, I’m the tired one.”
Have you read other books in the series? This one is the first in the series and there is a sequel that Morgan has done a review for, Wednesdays In The Tower, that I cannot wait to read. Morgan says if I love Rolf (which I do) and not so much Lilah (which I do), I’ll love the next book!
Who would you recommend it to? People who want to be a princess, people who are into fantasy and dungeons and dragons and that sort of thing and people who like all-genre books.
Number of unknown words: 17.
