Your Novel Review and Giveaway!

I don't know about you, but I love to read. I love anything from romance novels, to fantasy, and even adventure. A couple of weeks ago I ran across a website called Your Novel. What is Your Novel you ask? Your Novel is a really cool company that lets you become the characters in your own romance novel. How is this possible? They let you customize the book to have details about yourself so that you can be the center of attention. Just like you deserve! Would you rather be set in a vampire novel? Or an adventure novel? Don't worry, they have romance novels with those themes too! There's books for every taste. So of course when I was told that I get to review one of these books I was very excited! 
At first I thought that ordering one of these books was going to be very difficult, and quite frankly boring. But to my surprise ordering and customizing the book was just as fun and exciting as picking which book you wanted. They ask for not only your name, but the name of your loved one that you wish to include in the book. They also ask for other details such as your hair color, your eye color and even things like what kind of car you drive. Best of all if you think you might have entered in something that wont sound right in the book they have a feature that lets you read what it would sound like, and if you don't like it you can go back and edit what you entered until it sounds the way you want it.
That still not customized enough for you? I'm guessing it wasn't enough for them either, because not only can you do all that but you can decide what kind of book you are going to read. Do you want an extra steamy, hot romance novel? Then you can choose their wild option. Wild just a little too much for you? They also have a mild option that just includes kissing and hugging encounters. 
You can also choose between having a paperback, hardcover or even an e-book. You can even add your own picture! Another feature that I liked was that you can customize who you are giving it to, who it is from, and what the occasion is. So it could make that perfect gift for the one you love. 
I received my book in a matter of days and I could not believe how big my book was. I expected it to be a couple pages, maybe the equivalent of a normal books chapter. But my book was over 175 pages long! The book I chose was Rome: Diamonds, Danger, and Desire.

To sum up my book, my husband takes me on a wonderful trip to Rome! Which is something I wish he would do in real life! Anyway, as it turns out he is really a secret agent who was sent to Rome to complete a mission. And luckily for me, he decided to take me along for the ride. Let me tell you, it was definitely a ride! No pun intended! Or maybe it was intended. I chose the wild version, so it was definitely an adventure. Some parts of the book were pretty typical of a romance novel. In other words, cheesy. Which was really cool because I got to have a couple laughs out of it. And since it was personalized I got to think of my husband and myself while reading. Which was a very cool experience. 
I absolutely loved my book! It's definitely something I want to be able to show off. And now I can brag about having an adventure in Rome. Okay, so maybe I can't brag about going to Rome since technically I didn't go. But I can brag about how I have a book that is written about my husband and I. Which is really cool! This book is definitely something that I'm going to keep, and read many times!

  1. I think this is a wonderful idea :) I've never heard of Your Novel before. Sounds interesting. I used to love reading, but I've got ADD so it takes me forever to get through a book.
