    1 thought on “Fridays with the Wizards”

    1. I just finished reading the copyedits for this one (February 2015) and trust me, you'll love it. This is good stuff, if I do say so myself!July 2015: Final proofread!

    2. Final review, first posted on FantasyLiterature:Fridays with the Wizards is the fourth and most recent book in Jessica Day George’s CASTLE GLOWER series about twelve year old Princess Celie and the magical, semi-sentient castle where she lives. Celie and her brother and sister and friends have just returned from an unexpected adventure in another land, as related in the previous two books in the series, Wednesdays in the Tower and Thursdays with the Crown, where they tangled with the local wiz [...]

    3. 5 Stars!I am really sad that this is the last book in this series. I really liked this series. It was really the cutest series I have ever read before. This is my first time reading Jessica Day George books. I did not know what to except but after reading this series I really fell in love with it. I would love to read any of her other books she has. I would recommend this series to anyone.

    4. Not a bad addition to the series, but I didn't like it as much as the previous ones- maybe because Celie seems to be more pouty and foolish in this book. However, the Castle seems to direct her to do some foolish things ,so sometimes it's not entirely her fault. But I did find there was a lot of "this was unfair" attitude and "why doesn't anyone listen to me?" And " I don't want to be treated like a baby" and "I'm left out" and maybe this is how 12 year olds really think, but I find it annoying. [...]

    5. 2.5 starsThis series has been one of my favorites, but this volume fell flat for me. That could be because I expected it to be about something entirely different than from the set up at the beginning than it ended up being about. I thought the last 2/3s of the book would be away from the castle as the family began their journey to Luth's country. But it isn't. Arkwright needs to be captured. Again. The castle may be in trouble. Again. Celie feels like no one listens to or appreciates her. Again. [...]

    6. This was a glorious story. The Castle is back in Sleyne, Lulath and Lilah are engaged and everyone is thrilled with the upcoming trip to Grath. Everyone but Celie. She feels as though all of her discoveries are taken out of her hands, she's never allowed to participate in the exciting things and why does she need new gowns anyway, she doesn't want to go to Grath. Once again it is Celie who makes the most important discoveries and when Arkwright the evil wizard escapes it is ultimately Celie and [...]

    7. I liked that this one saw Celia starting that awkward transition from kid to adult, and being kinda mad at her persnickety older sister. Light and amusing as usual, read it on a 3 hr plane ride.

    8. This one was just okay for me. It kind of just seemed like filler, and was basically just setting the scene for the fifth book. Celie had a chip on her shoulder the whole time, which is never super enjoyable to read (very HP #5). They just kind of wandered around the castle looking for the bad guy. Seems like a waste of a book - the plot could have been resolved in a matter of chapters, rather than designating an entire installment of the series to it.

    9. Jessica Day George is one of my favorite writers, so I dislike having to write anything negative about any of her works, but unfortunately this newest chapter in the Castle Glower series just didn’t work for me. And to be honest, I wasn’t crazy about the last one either.The writing is solid, as always and I certainly don’t think this is a bad book, it just didn’t resonate with me. I found Celie to be annoying and whiny throughout the book and it never really resolves. She just became ted [...]

    10. The fourth book in Jessica Day George's Castle Glower series, Fridays with the Wizards continues Celie's adventures with the Castle's magical ways.This one felt very much like the middle book in a series--it continued things from the previous books and set up more adventures without really having much going on on its own. Lilah is preparing for her wedding with Lulath, and everyone is focused on building a boat as a wedding gift. A lot of time is spent on the frustration Celie feels when everyon [...]

    11. After the complex and convoluted castle history was worked out in the last book, Celie and her friends are back in the castle safe and sound. It’s not happily ever after quite yet, though – not when the Arkower wizard breaks out and is running around on the loose! Celie needs to stop him, save her friends, and prove to her parents that she’s level-headed and mature, all while dealing with the blow of her sister’s impending marriage. This is clearly an effort to combine a magical adventur [...]

    12. 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, [...]

    13. Read this one aloud with my daughter. This series has suffered from ups and downs, and for me, this one was more of a down. With the events of the previous book, the castle has effectively settled and no longer shifts about as much, so the whole charming premise there has been scaled back. Instead the focus is now more on the griffins, which is fine, but to a degree repetitive. Speaking of repetitive, the bulk of the novel's plot is concerned with a hunt that basically rehashes the same search o [...]

    14. A great addition to the series. Cute stories, great characters, fun universe. And I love how as celie has aged, her personality has changed too. I hope she has outgrown this book's fits of preteen foolishness. The celie I imagine seems like she would weather her teenage years gracefully. Here's to hoping in book 5.

    15. I have loved this series from start to finish. Celie is an excellent and engaging heroine. I enjoyed getting to know her and her family not to mention Castle Glower. I'd recommend this as a lighthearted fantasy to just about anyone.

    16. I am still reading 4 books into the series. It's still fabulous.And it makes me want SATURDAY now!!If your 3rd-5th grader has not read this series yet, please encourage them to start. Now.

    17. This was way too short! I read it in a day and loved every minute just as I have with the rest of the series. Keep em coming! :)

    18. Another adorable and fun addition to the series! We learn lots about the castle and baby Griffins while hunting an evil wizard, woot!

    19. Jessica Day George's Castle Glower fantasy series continues in Fridays with the Wizards. Twelve-year-old Celie's life is growing up; her pre-adolescent feelings and attitudes are changing and so is the magical world surrounding her. This novel is centred on the family's return to the castle, the betrothal of her older sister Lulah to Prince Lilith and the escape of the evil wizard Arkwright. Fridays with the Wizards is a slower-paced narrative, with less of the surprising fantasy elements includ [...]

    20. 3.5 stars maybe, but I'm going to round up because of the series as a whole. Lots of fun twists and turns in this book (which I mean quite literally -- since much of the book takes place in secret passageways and tunnels deep in the castle). An engaging plot, good characters (especially the less traditional ones like griffins and the castle), and decent writing. I didn't find myself super engaged and gripped like I am with some books, thus the lower stars, but there is nothing "wrong" with the b [...]

    21. These books are so cute and I love them so much.(view spoiler)[I just, it was taking me a while to read and I love these but I didn't really feel like finishing it. Maybe another time when I can whip through it faster, but I found I wasn't following the plot or really caring about the characters. I love this series and this concept and even the characters, but apparently not enough to finish it. Strange, but I am trying really hard not to judge my reading urges very much for the books that aren' [...]

    22. My son & I listened to this and the 3rd from the series. I don't enjoy them as much as he does, but they're not bad. I agree with previous comments that Celie whines too much. My favorite character is Lulath, and the accent of the voice actress is perfect! We are looking forward to the 5th and- I understand- final book in the series.

    23. A great addition to the series. I think I've liked individual books better than this one. Celie is a bit moodier and pouty in this book than the others. That said, I'm eagerly awaiting reading (listening to) the next book in the series. This book has some foreshadowing that I'm looking forward to seeing play out in future books.

    24. Fridays with the Wizards seems to realize there has been some time since the last book and so it does a decent job of catching you up with where the story is now. The story is slow to develop for the first half and then rockets to the end. While I may be the first to read this in my home, I have a wife and two daughters queued up behind ready to dive in.

    25. A nice book. I like the first in the series best, though. After a large gap, I picked up #5 Saturdays, and realized I was missing a book--it was this one. Though I was not enamored with Celie's petulance and didn't feel it rang true to a 12 year old (though everyone develops differently, of course), she was more appealing later on. There were some good plot developments.

    26. Another delightful book in this lovely series. I'd certainly recommend it for middle graders, especially, but I've also enjoyed reading it aloud to my children. The books are not terribly deep or profound, but they feature nicely developed characters, and the stories are entertaining without being cheesy or trite.

    27. This was very much just ok. It felt like a filler, nothing different actually happened, it was just a lead up for everyone getting on a boat. What happened to this world? The first book was so good. The rest of this series is so boring it's sad.
