Book Series Review: Castle Glower

Summaries: 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.

 We like gifts, we like holidays, and we like you. So it only makes sense that we gift you with a sparkly holiday treat, featuring the cleverest castle you will ever meet. Jessica Day George's very magical, very exclusive HOLIDAYS AT THE CASTLE: A TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE SHORT STORY, is available FREE HERE.

Wednesdays in the Tower. A castle that is constantly rearranging itself, and a young royal family sworn to protect it... Celie, Rolf, and their beloved Castle Glower are back in this exciting sequel. 
 Strange things are a foot in Castle Glower: new rooms, corridors, and even stables keep arriving, even when they aren't needed. Celie's brother Bran, the new Royal Wizard, has his hands full cataloging an entire storeroom full of exotic and highly dangerous weapons, while Celie has her hands full . . . raising the creature that hatches from a giant egg she finds! Will they be able to find out what's making the Castle behave this way in time?

 Thursdays with the Crown. Castle Glower has been acting weird, so it’s no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids – along with Celie’s pet griffin Rufus – set out through the forest to figure out where they are and what’s happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the Castle’s secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back home? 
 This bestselling series continues with the story of the origin of Castle Glower. Readers who’ve been enchanted by the Castle’s moving walls will be delighted by the Castle’s rich and magical history.

Thoughts: This is one of the most adorable series of books I've read in awhile! With lots of fun adventure, miniscule romance, and a group of fun siblings, not to mention an amazing Castle; the Castle Glower tales are really something else! Celie is a cute, spunky little princess who leads us through plenty of escapades through her very special Castle. Her older siblings (youngest to oldest) Rolf, Lilah, and Bran are usually present or at least helpful (mostly the first two) though Rolf is a favorite! There are plenty of interesting side characters, world building, history (both boring and fun) and folktales as well. From traveling through moving corridors, flying on griffins, to randomly appearing in a new world; you never know what to expect next! While written for a younger audience, readers of all ages should be able to enjoy this cute, quirky series! The series is, thankfully, still ongoing and we're waiting eagerly for Fridays with the Wizards:
Celie and her friends and family are back in the Castle, safe and sound. But there's still the problem of Wizard Arkwright. What do you do with an evil wizard? Especially when he escapes from his cell, but doesn't leave the Castle!
 Now it's up to Celie, with the help of her wizard brother Bran and her griffins, to track down Arkwright and get rid of him for good!
  (Bran wasn't a big favorite of mine but it sounds intriguing anyways!)

Content: Not much outside of flirting and a passing mention of two people kissing. there's hardly even any real violence though the ending of the first book might come as a bit of a surprise. Not going to spoil anything but it made me happy!
