I seem to remember reading a book at one point where the author advised other authors to give main characters names that didn't start with the same letter, that had the same length, or letters that look the same to a speed reader (such as P, R, or B).
Also, the main characters are merely reactionary figures to events that happen around them.
And they don't really grow. Laura Ingalls Wilder did in all of her books and she started out at a younger age.
And, It's really all my fault because I keep telling myself that this one will be better than the last book. And it's not. It's not bad. But it's not literature. And while it doesn't really have anything bad to teach my (fictional) 10-year old. It doesn't help them to grow and learn. ( )

This sequel to [b:Tuesdays at the Castle|10508431|Tuesdays at the Castle (Castle Glower #1)|Jessica Day George|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1331678412s/10508431.jpg|15414344] is a delightful continuation of the story of Celie and the Castle. I definitely hope there are more books to come; I want to learn more about these characters. ( )

Read these books. But read them in order, they are one BIG story that is addicting. I hope Saturday was not the end! ( )

Warning to readers: This delightful story is only half a book. It ends in a total cliff-hanger! I was not expecting this after reading the first book in the series, which is a stand-alone.

(Second of 5: Castle Glower series. Fantasy, children's)

This book follows on a year after Tuesdays at the Castle and once again focusses on Princess Celie's adventures. You could read this second book without having read the first but it does contain spoilers for the ending so you probably shouldn't read them the wrong way around. And word of warning; while the first book can be read as a stand-alone, the second ends on a kind of cliff-hanger.

Twelve year old Princess Celie feels there is something strange going on with the Castle. For starters, even though it's Wednesday not Tuesday (its usual day for adding new rooms), the Castle has added a new tower. But no one except Celie has discovered it and the Castle won't let her show it to anyone else. There's a big orange egg at the top of the tower, which it won't let her talk about either.

What animal is inside and what is she going to do with it once it hatches? And why is the Castle growing so many extra rooms suddenly? The new Royal Wizard, asks one of his colleagues from the wizard academy to come to the Castle to help him investigate - but Wizard Arkwright is not the one he was expecting though he seems to know a lot about the Castle and keeps popping up unexpectedly when Celie is trying to do her own research.

Fun, although maybe not quite as flippant as Tuesdays at the Castle. I didn't appreciate Celie screaming quite so much; while she was genuinely startled in most of those instances, a different verb might not have conveyed connotations of a hysterical female - which Celie most definitely isn't. I did like finding out about the history of the Castle; some of the new rooms added this time beg the question of what happens to them when they are not at the Castle with the Glower family and Celie and her siblings start to dig out some strangely obscure answers. There were some amusing moments that made me giggle, for instance Rolf's curse

'- By my aunt's hairy toes!'

or Celie's 'puppy' training woes (I can empathise)

...she'd told Rufus all about it while he gazed at her with golden eyes and lovingly chewed the hem of her gown.

The ending sets up the third book to start with the main characters we read about in the first book. We shall see what happens ... soon.
