Giants are attacking your peaceful forest home. Will you escape or fight? How will you protect your family?

I like that this story has a good mixture of serious situations and funny moments. If you enjoy this book, read some of the other books in the Endless Quest series and try your hand at being a cleric, fighter, or rogue.

In this story, you take control of Anakin, working with some of your favorite Star Wars characters. Unlike most of the stories in this list, this adventure has a specific goal for the ending. If you follow another path, you're encouraged to go back and try to make better choices. I enjoyed trying to "win" this story! For more Star Wars stories, check out the rest of the Choose Your Destiny series.

Could you survive the sinking of the Titanic? Maybe you could even save the ship! This story, inspired by the famous shipwreck, is more focused on fun than on historical accuracy, but the ship makes for a really interesting setting. The iceberg isn't the only challenge here. The ship is full of secrets for you to discover. There are lots of choices to make, and it has enough text between decision points to make it feel a bit more like a book than a game. This book is part of the Choose Your Own Adventure series.

This adventure, based on the stories of real people, features three different types of spies in World War II. When I think about a spy, I usually picture someone undercover, so I enjoyed seeing other types of spies, like pilots taking flyover photos of restricted spaces. The last section of the book has more information about the real history, including some of the people who inspired the characters in the story.

In this story, you become part of a real-life adventure.Three different sections let you take on various roles. The decisions and outcomes are based on real challenges people faced during this natural disaster. I thought this was a really interesting way to learn about recent history. I definitely felt more emotionally connected to the people involved here than I would just reading a normal article or book.

Get a taste of mountain climbing from the comfort of your couch! Choose among three different destinations and try to tackle fatigue, weather, and other complications. This book really highlighted the level of knowledge, luck, and skill needed to complete these climbs. Sometimes, making all the right choices still leads to a disappointing ending, but that only makes the successes even more satisfying.
