Thank you for stopping by and taking a break from the chaos of life. Take the weight off of your feet for a while and find something about your day to smile about; thank you for becoming part of my world, if just for a minute or two. It’s a shame you can’t smell the roses, but if you take a virtual stroll around I hope you’ll find a book you might like to curl up with, some useful advice if you’re a writer or blogger, or one of my more personal pieces that you may find interesting.
I was brought up in the beautiful Hampshire countryside. I am married with two children and juggle part-time work with full-time motherhood. I started blogging to combine a love of reading with a desire to embrace social technology; since then it’s developed into a passion to introduce avid readers to new writers, and offer a platform for little-known talent.
I review nearly all the books that I read, and post to Goodreads and Amazon US and UK. Aside from this blog, you’ll see my reviews posted on Facebook and Twitter. I’ve even branched out to do 90 second YouTube book reviews to try to reach the reading youth of today. I take submissions for my personal reading list, and also have a review team with approximately 30 active readers; if you would like to submit your book, please click the ‘Your Book Reviewed’ page, above.
I am so grateful for the support from visitors to my blog, and all you have done to spread the word about it on social media, not least of all nominating me for online blog awards. I was proud to be awarded runner-up in ‘Best Book Blog’ award in 2016, in the hugely popular and far-reaching Bloggers Bash, and third place in 2015 and 2017.
The Rosie Amber blog is an ever-growing, ever evolving entity, and my wish is to continue to provide a great service to readers, writers and blog addicts everywhere. Comments always welcome ~ enjoy!
