Ripley's Believe It or Not! Book Review & Giveaway

****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.The products mentioned below have been provided by Ripley's Believe It or Not! for the review & giveaway free of charge.****

Like crazy, creepy, gross and interesting things? Then mark your calendars for August 29th,2017 because the newest edition to the Ripley's book collection is hitting shelves near you. The newest book is called "Shatter Your Senses" featuring 256 pages packed with facts and photos that are sure to capture your imagination and send some of your senses on a ride. To achieve shattering your senses Ripley has included different articles and stories to go with each of the five senses, for example for smell you'll learn about how they sell fresh air in bags to tourists in Guangdong Province, China.



Ripley likes to keep up with events and stories that have happened recently so not only will you find articles about things that have happened in the past such as the Wachee mermaids who have been performing since 1947 to things that happened within the last year such as Pokemon Go. This book has over 1,500 all new and all true stories to entertain and fascinate you. I've enjoyed this books for years, I remember buying them at the school book fair when I was younger so I am glad they are still publishing them because now my kids enjoy reading them as well. Some of the stories will make you go "Awwww" out loud, others will make you wrinkle your nose in disgust or feel a little queasy thinking about doing some of the crazy stunts yourself.



Depending on how fast you read, this book may take you a day to read or it could take several either way one thing is for sure and that is the fact you will be entertained the entire time you are reading it. The team at Ripley's did a fantastic job going out and finding stories, photographing everything and collecting information for this book. It is hard cover and it is a stunning blue, the eye on the front appears to be coming out of the book and it is actually a moving 3D image, the eye appears to follow you as you move the book. As always this book gets a ten out of ten from me and I highly recommend checking this book when it comes out. It retails for $28.95 US/$34.95 Canada. August 29th is still over a month away and I know not all Ripley's fans want to wait that long to get their hands on that book so I am giving one of you a chance to win a copy ahead of the release date.

Later this year I will also be stopping by the Ripley's Believe It or Not Hollywood Odditorium so keep an eye out for the review in November.
