    Who, of a certain age, doesn't look at a "choose-your-own-adventure" book with a certain wistful nostalgia? Who is now into historical romances? Who didn't know that one could combine the two and come up with literary (or humorous at least) gold?I didn't know that, but this book has taught me something. That bosoms heaving and Scots who perpetually manage to lose their shirts can be delivered in a down-right hysterical fashion. I love Regency era...

    This was super fun! A choose-your-own-adventure romance with a lady love interest option? Yes, please. I expected to just go the queer route, but I ended up exploring pretty much all of the options, because they all had their own plots/mysteries, which were intriguing.

    3.5 StarsIt has been a long time since I have read a “choose-your-own-adventure” book. My Lady’s Choosing by Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris is an historical romance that is a humorous and engaging book of stories that allows the reader to decide the path of the book. There is a plethora of interesting characters to meet in this unique novel, however the sexual innuendos become a little bit too much.Full review on The Candid Cover

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review.I love the concept of this book so much. I have very fond memories of the Choose Your Own Adventure books from childhood and I love the idea of it for adults.If you are unfamiliar with the choose your own adventure concept, it is set up so that at the end of every scene you are given a choice of how you would like to proceed (which potential suitor you’d like to meet, w...

    Super, super cute. Love that one of the storylines is f/f! Its very silly good fun and an outrageous historical romp.

    I've never read an interactive story before so it was really refreshing to try to picture myself as the main character in a book. My Lady's Choosing is a hilarious love story with no shortage of swoons and eye rolls.The book starts off introducing you to yourself and a couple other leading figures. Maybe because of my love for historical settings I found I was able to comfortably settle myself into the role. The instructions were easy to follow a...

    I went through MY LADY'S CHOOSING and ried out three different versions of the story, and I absolutely loved every single one! I've always been a fan of "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories, and I love, love, LOVE romance, so this was right up my alley! I loved that it didn't take itself seriously and that the authors had so much fun with the genre and with various tropes/stories that they were inspired by. It was a blast to read and you could tel...

    At this point I've gotten I think most of the endings that involve Benedict (my fav bachelor), so I feel competent to comment on it.This is mad fun. It's ridiculous and bawdy at times, silly and charming at others. As a long time fan and reader of romances from the Regency era I found a lot to be familiar tropes - the dragon dowager, marriages of convenience, seedy theatre type folk, secluded corners and potted plants large enough to hide you fro...

    This was silly, but so much fun. It is a choose your own adventure, but it's basically a parody of romance novels. However, I think it is the kind of parody that most romance lovers will enjoy. It is particularly a parody of historical romances, and it definitely references some of the classics. The three main male love interests reminded me of 1. Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, 2. Mr Rochester from Jane Eyre and 3. Jamie Fraser from Outlande...

    My lady's choosing is a splendid mix of comedy and romance.Working a new twist on an old concept and being incredibly tongue in cheek about it too boot! Fans of the historical romance genre will get a kick out of the many tropes on offer in this book.I had a ball rummaging through the pages to find out what happened in the next part of my hilarious journey. Where did I end up first you ask?Happy and in the highlands of course. 😉Thank you to ...

    Update 10/16/2017Actual Rating: 3.5If there isn’t a day where the phrase “Jane Austen-inspired Choose Your Own Adventure” doesn’t excite me, then your best bet is probably to murder me because I most likely have been replaced by a changeling. I mean, honestly. There is literally nothing more fun-sounding than this. However, the super-fun concept makes this a very difficult review to write, because while I did have a lot of fun reading My ...

    This book is essentially a 'choose your own adventure' type of story where you decide which path your character is about to take. Readers who have read many literary romance novels might find this book equally charming and amusing. Needless to say, expect regency era tropes and a couple of illustrations that brings the story (more like its characters) to life. You'll see some Jane Austen references, for instance. Once you've completed a journey a...

    I think I read nearly all the storylines in this, so I'm going to call it read.This was a funny choose-your-own-adventure book set back in time. There are multiple very different adventures "you" can go on in this book, some that you won't see coming! It had portions of graphic sex acts, as well as so many cheeky humorous parts. I do recommend that this be read as a physical copy, as maneuvering through the ebook was not too easy.Original, fun, a...

    I'm not a romance reader, in the traditional sense, so I'm a bit unfamiliar with the target that is parodied. However, I did get some laughs and developed some definite preferences among the romantic objects on offer (#TeamMcTaggart). I particularly love the linguistic gymnastics required to be descriptive without being explicit.My mother picked up the book, read one page, and put it back down saying she wasn't old enough to read this.My copy was...

    This is such a great concept! I loved the various characters and all the twists this book can take. After working through the story two different ways, I skimmed some of the other chapters and was amazed with how many directions this book is able to take. It is well done and silly. You cannot take this book too seriously as a romance, but it is so much fun!

    Fun choose your own adventure for grown-ups! Can't wait to introduce this to the romance readers at my shop, to bad it's not releasing until April 3, 2018. This would be a great valentines day gift!

    I was delighted to see a grown-up interactive novel. It was a joy to read, though a very hard one to analyze and write a plot of. It cannot be said that it is great literature but that is besides the point; if it can take you out of the world you are currently in and send you back to the Jane Austen eras but not only staying confined in that kind of a plot and characters and setting, then what a success! The novel is very much like Pride and Prej...

    4.5/5 stars“The carriage arrives at your destination, and you are shaken by your gloomy thoughts – if only for a moment. Perhaps tonight will be the night that everything changes?”This choose-your-own-adventure incorporates your wildest fantasy of joining the cast of a Jane Austen book and the nagging sense of mystery and adventure. You get to be your own heroine, making your own choices and dealing with the consequences. This book is great...

    MY LADY'S CHOOSING is a choose-your-own-adventure regency romance novel and, as someone who grew up reading the classic CYOA stories, I had a lot of fun with it. Before I get into the review - I rarely recommend a specific format, but I do think the experience would be better if I was reading it in paper rather than clumsily attempting to swipe to the correct page.The Romantic OptionsWhen you open up the book, you are presented with a cast of cha...

    This book brought me back to my youth and my love for the Choose Your Own Adventure books, but it was even better, because this was a regency romance and I was the main character. From the very first page, I was totally delighted with the tone of this book. It was humorous and you could tell the author was having fun with the regency romance genre. After the adorable introduction, I got to meet all the other characters, who could pop up in the st...

    You know in Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail, where the knights decide not to return to Camelot, because "it's a silly place". Well, I feel like that phrase could also sum up this book. It is a very silly place. But in a good way. I haven't read a book this ridiculous but fun in awhile. From the charming cover art to the attractive (although also over the top) illustrations inside, from the variety of settings to choose from to the ...

    This was a fun tongue-in-cheek mash-up of "Choose Your Own Adventure" and typical Regency Romance. I went in expecting it to be a little more serious and slightly involved read, but when I found it was light, funny, and didn't take itself too seriously, I did not mind one bit. The author was able to poke fun at Regency tropes without poking fun at the readers who enjoy them. Most of the plot points I could see coming a mile away, but then that al...

    I was given an ARC of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Ladies and gents, you know I love a good bodice ripper. So when I was approached to review this book with this super gorgeous cover, I knew I had to get my hands on it. The thing was that I never paid much attention to the synopsis and it was only until a friend pointed out that this was an interactive romance novel did I realize what I gotten myself into. Not to m...

    My Lady's Choosing is an entertaining "choose your own adventure" that takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to trashy romance novels. Possible paths include popular tropes such as paranormal romance, Scottish highlander, hate-to-love nobility, and exotic adventures in Egypt. Just be forwarned- while it doesn't take itself too seriously, there is a whole lot of not-PG content!I will say, parts of this book were laugh-out-loud funny and (I imagine) eve...

    I was the BIGGEST fan of choose your own adventure books when I was growing up, so I was super excited about reading My Lady's Choosing! It was so much fun to be able to choose which character to fall in love with and how to handle each task at hand. The writing was fun an quirky and the characters were likable. The plot was a little short and to the point, but I think I expected that because of the nature of the book. I highly recommend this boo...

    I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review. I have very fond memories of reading choose your own adventure books when I was a kid, so I was very excited to try out a grown up version. My Lady's Choosing did not disappoint. As the heroine of the story, I had many important choices to make - because it is a romance, many of these decisions were of a more intimate nature. I liked that there was a balance ...

    What a surprise to read such an amazing and innovative book! I've never read an interactive book and this was definitely astounding!To have options of what you want to read and what life journey you'd like to take is way beyond my thinking until I got started on my journey as the main character and heroine of the courting season of this 18th century setting.The four main male characters and three main female characters make this book have great c...
