I recommend Love On The Lifts by Jill Santopolo for fans of young adult contemporary with romance that enjoy fun story structures. Mar 23, Samantha Kretschmer rated it liked it Shelves: teen-realistic. An extremely quick and easy read! Very little by way of quality but good, light-hearted fun elevated it to 3 stars. Maybe a little nostalgia for the choose your own adventures that I loved as a kid helped a bit too. Apr 22, Beth rated it liked it Shelves: 7th-grade. Such a cheesy, fun, good time!
I love choose your own adventure books My teen girls are going to love this!!! Mar 11, Jennifer rated it really liked it. Jan 08, The Book Nook Blog rated it really liked it. She and her sister devise a plan to find a new love while on a family vacation in the mountains at a ski lodge. This book is unique as it presents you with different scenarios where you can select a young man to date and has you jumping to different pages throughout the book as you continue to read.
Aug 18, Arielle rated it really liked it. I kind of want to downgrade "Summer Love" so I can tell you how much better this one is. It's SO much better. My only complaint is her overuse of the phrase "love on the lifts," which, come on, really? In most cases, you have multiple exit points from each scenario, and they're better written and more interesting with some people that just don't pan out. It's still a choose-your-own-adventure romance novel - it's nothing deep - but it's exactly what I hoped it would be.
Aug 27, Elizabeth rated it it was ok. I have never read the choose your fate kind of stor6 before so I have nothing to compare it to. However, I did not like the second person point og view for it and really did not like any of the guys that much. May 27, Gianna rated it it was ok. This book has 11 different endings and it is about a girl trying to get over her ex boyfriend.
Dec 01, Mehsi rated it it was amazing Shelves: cover-love , for-girls-one-shelf , warning-english-books , let-s-play , lgbt-let-people-love-who-they-want , 5-twinkling-stars. I absolutely adored the first book and I was so delighted to see a second book coming out. I can't remember exactly what I thought of the other book's endings, but I am delighted with this book's endings.
We got both friendship and romance endings. So if you don't want to go for a hot date, you can just make friends with a lovely guy. Which is a wonderful option. Of course I read the book for the hot g I absolutely adored the first book and I was so delighted to see a second book coming out. Of course I read the book for the hot guys and the equally lovely hot kisses, but at times I just want to relax and go for friendship.
It was still a bit awkward to read in the you do this and you do that, in other words second-person narrative. A narrative not often found in books, and while it fits with this book after all you are the protagonist , it still feels weird and out of place. I know I had that problem with the first book, and while it is a bit better now that I know it will happen it was still a bit strange and at times it took me a bit to get through the book.
I loved all the guys we could pick from.
There were some guys I didn't entirely like or whom I found a bit weird and too hungry for a pretty girl. Other guys were just perfect and I could just envision myself on the slopes though I only know how slopes look from pictures or movies, so my image might be a bit off. All in all, I would highly recommend this book to everyone. It is a fun way to spend your afternoon. I will just be hoping that there will be more of these books coming out. I would be really sad if this one and the other one would be the only ones. Oct 19, Tina rated it really liked it Shelves: ya. When I was a kid I lived for the choose your own adventure books.
I read every one I could get my hands on.
First I'd go through and read it as if I was a big chickenshit, taking all the running scared options I could. After I died my cruel and horrible death that way it always ended in death or tears , I'd go back and be the fearless hero, taking all the risks I could and getting an entirely different story. By this time I'd read at least half of the physical book, so I'd go through and play a When I was a kid I lived for the choose your own adventure books.
By this time I'd read at least half of the physical book, so I'd go through and play a couple different times to get more text.
By the end, I was reading it front to back, making sure I didn't miss a single page of options. I read this one exactly that same way. Santopolo has everything here that made me love those books growing up. The second-person narrative, the chicken or fearless options, and of course, the page hoping. But it is her sticking so closely to that pattern that also disappointed me. The writing is very superficial, there's no depth or meat to any of the options.
I know when your story is essentially only 10 pages its hard to get a heart-wrenching omg where are the tissues thing going, but it just felt. It made me realize that I've probably outgrown exactly what drew me to this book in the first place. Santopolo DOES try to make it a book with a variety. It isn't just choose your boy by looks and personality. Sometimes you don't get a boy, sometimes you get a boy who's going to be a friend, sometimes you get HEA. So yes, because she did try, and because I had a hoot of a time doing my reading, 4 stars.
But one of those stars is solely for the nostalgia factor. Thanks to Penguin for the ARC of this one! Feb 04, Stacie rated it really liked it Shelves: reviews. Love on the Lifts is the perfect teen choose your own romantic endeavor story. I remember the "choose your own adventure books" when I was growing up and always enjoyed the numerous choices I could make to create my own unique ending.
As you read the book, you find yourself having to make some decisions such as talking to the first guy you meet or waiting to see who else is around the corner. Get A Copy. Other editions. For some reason I seem to have picked the books in order of hot Island Girls , cold Snowed In , warm Boyfriend Project , hot Caribbean Cruising and back to this book, cold again. I almost rated it two stars because the aunt owned a bookstore, but I couldn't get myself to, I just really disliked this book. It is a fun way to spend your afternoon.
