Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!

I received a book to review. All opinions expressed are my own. 

One of the things that I look forward to each summer is the release of  the new Ripleys Believe It or Not Book. We have received the new Ripley’s Believe it Or Not Book called Reality Shock this past week and we haven’t been able to put it down. In fact you might even find yourself in a state of shock when you open this book up for the first time.

Reality Shock! is the 2015 edition of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! bestselling annual series. This incredible collection is loaded with unbelievable facts, amazing stories, and incredible animals. With amazing photography, zany stories and unbelievable facts and figures, this book is sure to be a favorite with adults and children alike.

Reality Shock! Is filled with more of the amazing facts, unbelievable stories and extraordinary photography that makes Ripley’s Believe It or Not! so popular. Read all about the amazing things that people all over the world have done- from insane stunts to crazy traditions.  Take a closer look at the extraordinary images nature produces, such as mutated animals and amazingly impossible vistas. Crystal clear photography paired with zany stories, amazing facts and figures that are undeniably true but incredibly hard to believe will make this book a must have for every household.

Like all of the other Ripley’s books this one definitely does not disappoint. It’s 256 pages of some of the oddest and fascinating stories from around the globe. Most of the stories are jaw-dropping and you think to yourself “this can’t possibly be real” but it is and I think that is why these books are so popular. Not only will kids love this book but I think adults will too, there were a few stories that I had to turn the page really fast but I think that made my kids love the book even more.

I never imagined how much fun we would have together, as a family, during her time in softball. It was a rush not only for … Continue Reading

I was officially hooked. Ziplining is one of those activities that everyone should … Continue Reading
