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.

I really enjoyed the story - I feel it gives a fresh, clean aspect to YA fantasy. It's a novel concept, not overused, but new and interesting and quickly sucks you into the world of Castle Glower. 5 stars for the story!
On the other hand, I do not like the narrator. Her reading pace is far too slow for my taste, with exceptionally long pauses, but just fast enough that if you try to speed it up to 1.25 speed, it's so fast you can't catch everything she's saying. She has great expression though, which is why I'm giving her 3 stars.
