As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I LOVE Jessica Day George’s books, especially her Castle Glower series. So this past weekend I decided to pick up her newest book in that series and read it. And promptly finished it in about two days. It. Was. So. Good.
Fridays With the Wizard is a continuation of book 3, so if you’ve not read the other books in this series, you won’t understand what’s happening.
Celie, our protagonist, is this spunky 11-year-old whom I adore. Seriously, she’s be a lot to handle, but I love her. The evil wizard, Arkwright, has escaped and is lurking somewhere in the castle. It is up to Celie and her brother Bran, the Court Wizard, to find him. Celie’s feeling a little upset, with all the changes that have happened over the course of the books, and so she is more upset in this book.
This is just a fun light read, something I needed over the weekend. The only thing I wish it had—MAPS. I sort of wish there were some maps in these books.
My Rating: 4/5 stars
