Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George

Tuesday is the day that Castle Glower changes. New rooms, corridors, and even secret passageways appear then. Princess Celie is doing her best to keep up with the changes. She goes about with her atlas and colored pencils mapping the castle. When calamity strikes in the form of her parents' disappearance, Celie and her sister Lilah and her brother Rolf do their best to protect themselves and the castle until their parents return.

What I thought: Jessica Day George is fast becoming one of my favorite fantasy writers. Tuesdays at the Castle was a delightful adventure from beginning to end. Celie is a wonderful character and Castle Glower is a fantastic setting. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. Luckily for me, Tuesdays at the Castle is the first book in a new series.
