Old Fashioned Novelization and "The Old Fashioned Way" Companion Book Review and GIVEAWAY! (7/8) #OLDFASHIONEDMOVIE #FLYBY

*Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.



About the Old Fashioned Novelization:
Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town....and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance.  But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can't help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.  Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love.  They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an "old fashioned" courtship?

My Review:
After seeing the movie Old Fashioned, reading the novelization of the movie has been quite neat!  I always thought I'd prefer reading the book first, but it's interesting to be able to read what the characters are feeling and actually get details that I didn't necessarily pick up on while watching the movie.

The story is the same as in the movie, of course, and there is definitely something refreshingly sweet about the idea of the 'old-fashioned' dating style that Clay and Amber have. :-)

Buy it!
Old Fashioned, the novelization, can be purchased here for $11.99.


About The Old Fashioned Way: Reclaiming the Lost Art of Romance:
Contrary to popular opinion, being "old fashioned" doesn't mean you're dull or unromantic.  In fact, a true old fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you've ever experienced!  So what does it mean to do things the old fashioned way?  Sure, it means opening doors, holding out chairs, and taking things slow.  But a true old fashioned romance goes much, much deeper than that.  Inspired by the motion picture Old Fashioned, this book will show you how to reclaim the lost art of romance by introducing you to romantic love as God intended it.  Regardless of your past mistakes, where you've been, what you've done, or where you are now, you can find and create a love that will last a lifetime!  As you work your way through this forty-day journey of inspiring readings and questions for reflection, you'll discover all the unique and amazing benefits of doing things the old fashioned way.  And before you know it, you'll be well on your way to creating a love story for the ages.   

My Review:
This companion book to Old Fashioned would be a great guide to use before starting to date.  It goes over things like the benefits of online dating, building your character, treating each other with respect and a bunch more!  I wish I had read something like this before I jumped into dating...although I'm super happy with who God has blessed me with, so I must have done okay! ;-)  I just appreciate the topics discussed in The Old Fashioned Way and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking of dating!

Buy it!
The Old Fashioned Way companion book can be purchased here for $10.99.
