Teaser Tuesday: Tuesdays at the Castle

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share a few “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!

Back from a hiatus! Been reading lots of books and attending plenty of book signings. I'm planning a giveaway of signed copies of books on this blog soon. But on to this week's tease!

I originally got Tuesdays at the Castle for my daughter. Since I've really enjoyed Jessica Day George's fairytale retellings (one was teased here), I was sure I would like this one. And I definitely wasn't disappointed…as long as I kept in mind that this book is meant for middle graders.

When Castle Glower gets bored, it might sprout a new tower. Or create a room with a bouncy floor. Or perhaps shrink your room to closet-sized if it doesn't like you. Most importantly, the Castle picks who will be king. And those seeking the throne had best pay attention.

Here's the Teaser:
"She'd been aiming for her room, but instead found herself at the foot of the stairs that led to the tower with the four spyglasses. It was as if the Castle had turned the corridors around to lead her there."
-pg 17, Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George
