TWO New Gravity Falls Books Are Out Today—Here's Why You Need to Read Both

The folks at Disney Press released not one, but two incredible Gravity Falls books today.

They're called Dipper and Mabel and the Curse of the Time Pirates' Treasure! and Gravity Falls: Journal 3. If you ever tuned in to the show on Disney XD, you'll need both of these books on your shelf, ASAP.

Gravity Falls books: Dipper and Mabel and the Curse of the Time Pirates' Treasure and Journal 3

Dipper and Mabel and the Curse of the Time Pirates' Treasure!: $7.38

The "Choose Your Own Adventure" genre seems to have fallen out of fashion recently. It's a real shame, because the Dipper and Mabel and the Curse of the Time Pirates' Treasure! is a "Select Your Own Choose-Venture" that works.

The story follows our heroes Dipper and Mabel Pines, plus one of our favorite recurring characters, Blendin Blenjamin Blandin, on a journey through time to uncover infinite treasures.

The book always stays true to the characters we all know and love from the series, and any of the storylines you can follow would feel right onscreen.

Best of all, on this "choose-venture," you get to make the calls. Sometimes those calls result in never-ending glory, and sometimes they get you eaten.

And because it's a story about time travel, it encourages readers to do a little time traveling of their own, flipping back through the pages and trying another option if their journey leads to a dead end (or worse). We would have done that anyway, but we're thrilled that a gamebook is finally condoning our behavior.

With 283 pages, there's a lot of adventure to choose here. We made it to "the one true end" without ever encountering the dragon or Old West storylines we spied as we flipped through the pages.

Finishing the book doesn't mean you're done. It definitely warrants at least a couple of rereads. We want to experience it all–and apparently we missed something, because the book teases a secret we didn't discover!

And did we mention it comes with this awesome double-sided poster? As if this book didn't already offer you enough choices.

Gravity Falls: Journal 3: $11.99

Journal 3 is the ultimate Gravity Falls guidebook.

It includes every page of the three journals ever featured on the show, plus tons more never-before-seen written content, gorgeous illustrations and more secret codes than we even know what to do with.

Seriously, we're going to spend the next month trying to decipher this thing.

It's obvious that Gravity Falls' creator and voice actor Alex Hirsch was heavily involved in every aspect of this book. You really believe that this is the journal from the show.

It's also extremely comprehensive, swapping between the journal's original author as well as Mabel and Dipper throughout the course of the book. Have a favorite Gravity Falls moment? It's probably in here.

But we do need to warn you—if you haven't finished the show yet, be careful because Journal 3 is spoiler central.

It's 288 pages of secrets, doodles and Gravity Falls magic, and it's a must-have for any fan.
