The Lilac Tunnel- My Journey with Samantha Book Review
A few days ago, my mom and I stopped by Michael’s Craft Store (for another reason that I’ll be telling you all about soon! 😀 ) and while we were there, I stumbled across The Lilac Tunnel My Journey With Samantha book! My mom bought it for me to read for school and I was so hooked with this book, that it was hard for me to put it down!
The front cover is so pretty!
I took a picture of the description of it on the back, too 🙂
(psst! Click on the picture so you can read it! 😉 )
I love this little introduction! Just reading it, you KNOW that you’re going to love this book! 😀
So, let’s get on with the review!
How much is the book? It is $9.99 and totally worth it!
What is the book about? You’re a 10 year- old, modern day girl who is given a locket and when you open it up- you are transported back in time to 1904. There you meet Samantha who ends up being one of your best friends 🙂
Why do you love the book so much? I think the main reason why I love this book so much is because you can read the story so many different ways, and yet it all still has the same concept. Above is an example where you choose what happens next. And once you end that version of the story- you can go back and see how it ends when you make a different decision. It’s just such a neat idea and I love the creativity that is put into this book 🙂
Would you buy another “My Journey With __” book? Absolutely!! I would love to have them all someday! This is a book that I can read again and again! I highly recommend this book!
What do you think of the “Journey” books?
I want to read it! How many pages is it?
There are precisely 184 pages of the story plus there are a few extra pages at the end talking about Samantha’s time and things like that 🙂
I would really like to read one or two, just to see how what they are like, because I have never really read a book where I got to choose my own endings. I think they are a very interesting part of the BeForver collection.
Wow!! The book sounds great!!! After reading the back I totally feel I need it, lol!
Thanks for doing this review! 😉
You’re welcome! LOL! I’m glad you enjoyed it 😀
I haven’t read any of the BeForever books yet; but I have read all the MyAG cyoa books. They’re very good. I might ask for Adverure books for My favorite AG BF girls this year
I’m reading that book right now! It is a nice book!
So wait have you not read. the normal Samantha stories yet?
Yes, I have, just not the new volumes by BeForever. 😉
Samantha’s stories are actually the first AG books I ever read 🙂
The new volumes are the same, they are just combined into two volumes instead of six books. 😀
Oh cool! Yeah actually the new volumes are the same they just looks different;
There are 3books in each volume.
Ya know my little photo story I had going? Well, I am
On vacation so I won’t do it this Tuesday, FYI . 🙂
Oh, okay, that’s fine! 🙂
I REALLY want to read that book now!!!!!!!!!!! MY LIBRARY BETTER HAVE IT BECAUSE I AM SAVING UP FOR AN AG DOLL OTHERWISE I’D BUY THAT IN AN INSTANT *falls out of chair and faints of excitement* thanks for sharing this!!
LOLOL! I hope they have it! It’s REALLY good! 😀
And you’re welcome! 🙂
I finally got that book for Christmas, and have read it word for word. I really love it. ^_^
Oh, yay!! Yes, that book is so good! 😀
I’ve been reviewing the books on my blog, too, but it seems like the Choose Your Own Adventure type would be hard to do. But I’m still curious about them…since you give such a glowing recommendation, I might have to check them out, whether or not I can figure out a way to review them! Thanks!
I saw that book at Michaels on Saturday!! I didn’t get it because it was 12.99 🙁
I want to get one soon……
Oh, how odd! It was only $9.99 at my Michael’s. That stinks. I’m sorry about that 🙁
Hey, everyone. I don’t know if this is on topic, but…Madison, there’s something bad happening on your blog. This girl is saying bad things, and is swearing and being an all around bully. She’s kind of scaring me. 🙁 I’m not used to that kind of stuff. I don’t know if you can block her, but if you can, please do. Please, go over to your blog with your mom or dad. 🙁
Okay, well, I just saw the new post, Madison. Thanks for that.
Yeah, that really was bad! I saw that and was like “Whoa, what is going on?” 😕
I’m really sorry that this happened to you, Madison! 🙁
I never did see this comment! Just so everyone knows, I took care of this ;). Terribly sorry about it and that you (and anyone else) saw that, Kelly. 🙁 My comments are moderated now so nothing like that should ever happen again 🙂 .
I haven’t read any of the BeForever books. I’m actually really upset about BeForever. Glad you liked the book though!
I have this book, too! I also have the Kit one, and one of the Samantha Classics. But when I first got this book, I seriously couldn’t put it down for like a whole 24 hours after I got it! It was so addictive!
BTW, I looove Michaels! I went there once last summer (I had never been there before), and I didn’t want to go home-there was so much cool stuff!
I know right?! All I wanted to do was read that book! LOL!
