Comments Let's Get Lost

  • LolaReviewer

    And predictable. And unrealistic for a contemporary. Yet, it was fast-paced and I actually read it in one sitting.There are, we can say, five short stories inside this book but they are linked to one another thanks to a same character who is present in each of them: Leila.Leila is something of a mystery throughout the story. She comes out of nowhere, the only thing she tries doing is to help people (but for Hudson’s case, it wasn’t helpful to him at all what she did.) She’s nice with those [...]

    When you want a book to escape reality for a few hours, Let's Get Lost is what I would hand you. A road trip, intriguing characters, wild adventures, and, of course, a healthy dose of romance - this is the perfect beach read!I've read a few road trip books and this one is just as much fun, yet different in many ways. We follow Leila's trip to Alaska, but we follow it through others' eyes - the story is told using the point-of-views of the people she gets to meet during her trip. I found this ver [...]

    Please note, I am biased as I'm the editor of this book. However, this book has been an utter pleasure to work on, and I can't recommend it enough! Watch for it in August 2014!

    I liked Adi Alsaid's writing, but the story just wasn't for me. I couldn't connect with anything and thought the characters all fell flat. They seemed more like cliche ideas rather than real people. And I just didn't care about anything?BUT it was so fun to see the Minneapolis setting! I hardly ever find YA books set in Minnesota.

  • Christina (A Reader of Fictions)

    Pages Read: 21I am by no means the authority on this book and I'm sure plenty of people will love it. From what I read and the research I did prior to DNFing, I think it's very John Green, but the John Green of the novels I didn't much care for (Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns). If you loved those, you probably want Alsaid's debut.That said, I bowed out after one chapter of the first perspective. WHY?"He only allowed himself a quick glance at her, knowing as soon as he saw her that she was th [...]

    *My copy is actually 359 pages before Reader's guide and book previews*4.5 Stars overall I think:)*Warning: this review has my fan casting for the book, simply because it is fun:-P*This was a fun book right off the bat the format didn't bother me at all. It was fun getting to see Leila through each of the people she met on her journey. Each adventure had it's own charm and quirks, in turn having me crying/laughing/giving hugs to everyone. Each adventure wrapped itself up nice but I found myself [...]

    See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsIt's moments like these when I need to take a minute and check my temperature to make sure there's nothing wrong with me. Because looking at this high average rating, I'm pretty shocked. Like, really shocked. I had high hopes for Let's Get Lost: it's said to be a fun road trip book about finding yourself, finding love, finding hope and just getting lost for a while. It definitely has that, though very basically. Throw in a moral, throw in a logically incorre [...]

    "People hurt each other," Leila said without much inflection in her voice. "It happens to everyone. Intentionally, unintentionally, regretfully or not. It's part of what we do as people. The beauty is that we have the ability to heal and forgive."The plot:Leila is on a roadtrip to Alaska to see the Northern Lights. I won't tell you guys why since that will spoil the story. On her way there, Leila met four people. Each of them have problems and even if these people are strangers to Leila, she tri [...]

    2.5 starsThere's plenty of cringe-inducing elements in Adi Alsaid's Harlequin Teen road trip novelLet's Get Lost. Certainly leading the cringe parade is the 17 year-old road tripper, Leila, a Manic Pixie Dream Girl in a zig-zag northerly quest to view the Northern Lights, who randomly arrives at various parts of the US (Vicksburg, MS; Kansas; Minneapolis, MN, Seattle, WA) just in time to sprinkle fairy dust on fellow teens, enchanting boys and girls alike with either insta-love or omniscient lif [...]

    I WAS bored, but now I'm pissed. More detailed review to come.--Ugh. Okay. I wasn’t initially interested in this book at all, just based on the cover. When it was first on NetGalley and was being super hyped up on Twitter, I was immune. But then I attended the Harlequin breakfast at BEA, and Adi Alsaid made a little speech about his book and well, color me intrigued. Let’s Get Lost is a series of short stories about four completely random people who have absolutely nothing in common, nothing [...]


  • Rashika (is tired)

    ***This review has also been posted on The Social Potato Actual Rating 3.5Let’s Get Lost was a book I was looking forward to reading and I am really glad I wasn’t let down. I wouldn’t say it blew my mind away, but I definitely had the feels. I think the best way to think of this book is to allude it to one of those you read when you’re not having a great day. It’s far from perfect as when I look back, I can think of so many things that could have been better, but in spite of this I'm n [...]


  • Danielle (Love at First Page)

    2.5-3 starsLet's Get Lost is a book that had a good amount of hype surrounding it before its release, but it fell short of those expectations for many bloggers, now including myself. The premise certainly had potential: four vignettes about teens going through a hard time in their life, connected by a teenager on a road trip to Alaska to see the Northern Lights. I like traveling books. I like books that connect characters together through theme and random oddities and a single person. The idea t [...]


  • Kassidy

    *4.5*I loved this book so much! My favorite part is the cast of characters in this story. They are all so unique and I loved learning about each of them. It was so fun going on this journey with Leila and figuring out her story. I think it's very creative how Adi Alsaid wrote the book. It's almost like 5 different short stories all tied together by Leila's road trip.My only complaint is I want more! I want to know more about each of the characters we met and know how things ended up. I also want [...]


  • Alex

    I found this book cliche and full of tropes, the Manic Pixie Dream Girl being the most dominant. Every character is a cardboard cutout pretending to have something profound to say. I like the concept of the book but I just couldn't stop rolling my eyes. It was disappointing as I keep seeing it suggested on up coming YA lists, but my verdict is a big Pass.


  • Maxwell

    Unfortunately after 106 pages, I'm not going to finish this book. To be quite honest, there's no substance for me. The main character is not a character at all but a plot device for the other characters in the story. This book is broken down into 5 sections. The first 4 sections follow Leila as she goes on a road trip to see the Northern Lights. Each of these first 4 sections comes from the third person perspective of a different character. I read the first 1.5 sections and just couldn't keep re [...]


  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)

    This was such a fantastic book! One of my favourite things about this book was the different perspectives. I really enjoy when books have lots of perspectives, because it gives you a deeper understanding of what's happening in the story and makes you like all the characters a bit more. One cool thing about this book is that all the characters are connected through one girl, Leila. She appears when they are most in need of a friend. Its kind of like a puzzle, or an equation. Each piece slowly fit [...]

    Un 3,5 en realidadDesde hace bien poquito he desarrollado una cierta debilidad por las historias que se desarrollan durante algún tipo de viaje por carretera o road trip. Suelen ser lecturas que se hacen muy amenas, con toques divertidos pero también con un trasfondo y alguna moraleja final, y por ello Aquello que creíamos perdido captó mi atención desde el primer momento. Había oído que era una novela que recomendaban a todos los fans de John Green y la verdad que puedo entender el porqu [...]


  • Larry H

    Let's Get Lost is sweet, quirky, and more than slightly implausible in places, but it's one of those books where the characters act like and say things you wish people would in real life.Leila is a free spirited young woman on the ultimate road trip—she's headed from her home in Louisiana to see the Northern Lights, which she has always wanted to see. Driving her bright red car, moving from place to place, she comes upon several different people, each in a time of need or dealing with an emoti [...]

    This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdMY THOUGHTSI, honestly, had no idea what to expect from this book. I knew that it was about a road trip, but that's it. I was in the mood for a summer read and this looked like the perfect summer read! This was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a fun road trip book and I got this.This beautiful, unique monster that made me laugh but cry in the span of only a few hours.This book was much more than a road trip.Reading this book, is l [...]


  • Melanie

    Let's Get Lost is about getting lost and being found. The main character of this book is Leila, but we meet her and know about her from the perspective of four different people she meets on her drive to Alaska. The main goal of her trip is to see the Northern Lights. Leila is a mystery, she appears in the life of four teens when they need her the most and change their lives. I was not aware of the way this book was written before reading it, is four different stories with one character in common [...]


  • Sheila

    I think I am too old for this book. Instead of being a great adventure story, I found it just one eye-rolling stupid, unsafe, unrealistic adventure after another. The situations the characters in this book get them into make me worry for the current teenage generation if this is the best they can do with their decision making skills. It took till the final chapter of the book to find out what this whole road trip was about. Some foreshadowing would have been appreciated, as the way it was writte [...]


  • Tiff at Mostly YA Lit

    3.5 stars. I liked all of the middle stories, but the insta-love fell very flat for me, and I had to take off half a star for that. That said, this is a dreamy, wanderlust-y novel for anyone who believes in random acts of kindness and paying it forward. Review to come.


  • Cal

    Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal's Constant Raving Reviews MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK:I had a wonderful journey with Let's Get Lost! I read it in one sitting, for about three hours. It was heart-wrenching from the moment you pick it up, and never stops being angsty and romantic. CHARACTERS/DYNAMICS:My favourite duo had to be Hudson and Leila. But I did appreciate all the other storylines, which include: PLOT:Hudson, who is willing to throw away his dreams for love. And Bree, a ru [...]

    "You know what I've never understood about life?""We've reached that point of the night already? It's epiphany o'clock?"Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid was one of the books I've been eager to read since I picked it up at ALA. As soon as I discovered that it included a road trip that involves loss, hope and love, which you can clearly see based on the cover alone, I was sold. I love.love.love road trip books. It's a chance for me to live vicariously through characters that travel the states on a que [...]


  • Sonia

    Think this will be my first time reading a book with a character that shares my name! Irrationally excited about that!!


  • Hann Remraf

    If the massive amounts of cussing, few passionate kisses, and twisted, immoral motives/actions had not been so prevalent, this book probably would've been a 4.5.


  • Eileen

    I read this while being in London for a couple of days because I thought 'hey why not read a roadtrip contemporary when you're on the road yourself'. Having said that, I was really excited diving into 'Let's Get Lost' by Adi Alsaid.Leila is on a road trip to Alaska because she wants to see the Northern Lights. On her way travelling up north, she meets four people, Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia. Each of them faces a difficult situation. Leila tries to help these 'strangers' to find their right p [...]


  • Jennifer

    It's funny and it is heartfelt, but without the cringe-worthy dialogue that you sometimes find in YA books. Though I think this book certainly has appeal to both YA and adult readers. Simply put - "Let's Get Lost" was a joy to read. The writing feels comfortable, and real. This is one of that books with standalone stories that works really well, with Leila gamely going along with whatever scenario the new character has in store for her. There are several moments that made me laugh. You will find [...]


  • Hannah

    Really really enjoyed this, but a lot of the events seemed really unrealistic, especially for a contemporary novel.
