In our house, we are readers. On the weekends, you can usually find one or all of us snuggled up with a cozy blanket reading a good book. For me, I read a lot of supernatural, sci-fi and romance. If I can mix those together, I’m all the happier! I was recently reading a book that had my hubby’s name as the “hero”, but another woman’s name for the heroine, so it was hard for me to get into the book since I could not disassociate from his name. Since “Krista” does not come up all that often for romance novel heroines, I was never really expecting to find one that featured our names together. But I was wrong! YourNovel.com offers unique gifts in the form of personalized romance novels! I received a personalized romance novel in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think?
The entire process for creating your own personalized romance novel is fun! First you browse through an extensive list of books that you would like to star in from historical romance to detectives, beaches and sports! I selected a vampire themed book, because well, ever since I read a certain vampire saga, I informed the hubby that I wish we knew some vampires! Following the theme selection, you choose e-book, soft cover or hard cover and then mild or wild (suggestive eyebrow waggle!) The final step is to personalize the book. The personalization section covers everything from name, nickname, hair color, perfume and even favorite radio station! My favorite part was being able to write a dedication. While I dedicated my book to the hubby, it is likely safe to say that he will never actually read it cover to cover, but he did get a kick out of reading some of the saucier passages that featured us!
The book arrived quickly, and looks great! I am not entirely sure what I expected, but this looks like a book that I would have picked up at the bookstore – not a book that was just personalized for me and then bound!
I think a personalized romance novel would be a great gift from husband to wife, or to a bachelorette! These books are fun, easy reads that add a new element by making you and your significant other the stars! I would definitely recommend picking up one of these fun and cheeky books to add to your romance collection, or as a gift to your spouse!
