Escape books lover ,


The stories are so creative, and I love how you can choose what happens in the book!!! It's so fun to read it over and over again until you get a good ending.


Drawn in

I'm guessing these choose your own adventure type of books are for kids, but I easily got drawn into the story. The author has a great imagination and created a way to mix old school choose your own adventure books with new school technology. Great experience!
