Teaser Tuesday: Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George.

Tuesdays at the Castle –

“No one hates you,” her sister, Lilah, said soothingly.
“But you do have a tendency to bounce.”
“There’s nothing wrong with bouncing,” Celie insisted.
— Chapter 2

“My room should be right here,” Lilah said, frowning.
“It keeps showing me this room,” Celie said, pointing
up the stairs to the Spyglass Tower. “I’m starting to wonder
if it’s important.”
— Chapter 5

When I was younger, I always wanted a house that would grow rooms and turrets just to my liking. I never really wanted to be a princess, though, so it’s possibly just available as a package deal ... I’m not that far along in the book yet, I’m currently reading what feels like six books at the same time in preparation for an event next week. However, out of the books I’m reading and which I can already talk about, this seems to be one of the sweeter and more charming ones. I’m looking forward to reading more of this, I enjoy the writing a lot and especially the younger princess as the main protagonist. I feel that there is a lot of potential in this spunky character and I hope to see her develop quite a bit in the course of the story.

What are you reading this week? Is one (or are more) of your protagonists on a major journey of personal growth? And if at all possible, take some time to bounce today, because there’s nothing wrong with bouncing at all.

I think I have this book here, too. Sounds like a great one. Right now, I am reading Spirit Shapes by Marilyn Meredith and The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen by Valerie Estelle Frankel. The story of Katniss is definitely one of growth.
