Wednesdays in the Tower

Written by: Jessica Day George

First line: There are a lot of things that can hatch out of an egg.

Why you should read this book: The irrepressible Princess Celie is back, her atlas as complete as it can ever be, but her beloved Castle Glower seems to be going crazy, adding entire towers, halls, and even stables, mostly full of improbable and possibly dangerous objects. It all starts when she finds an obviously magical egg, which hatches into an energetic griffin whose presence she's forced to keep secret. There's a not-entirely-forthcoming wizard poking around where it's most inconvenient to Celie, and whole eons of lost history to recover in a fun, fast-paced adventure.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Freaking CLIFFHANGER ending!
