Hello there! 👋🏻 My name is Rosie, and I run this little corner of the internet.
I’ve been a reader ever since I was a little girl, and back then I read things like Goosebumps, absolutely anything Mary-Kate & Ashley, and the Magic Treehouse books. Nowadays, I’m head over heels for young adult fiction, more specifically: fantasy, contemporary, and romance. I’ll also venture into sci-fi, mystery and thriller on occasion. 📚
I have a fondness for emojis and book photography (although I am not the best at it). I’m a big fan of Game of Thrones, Kingdom Hearts games, and Harry Potter – where I FULLY identify as a Hufflepuff! 🦡
I take pictures on my iPhone XR and edit them in Affinity Photo for Mac. 📱
A DARKER SHADE OF ROSIE didn’t start out as so. I originally called myself ‘Paper Town’, after being inspired by the John Green book and simultaneously having a need to get my reviews out into the virtual world. I officially became a book blogger in December 2013! I went through many name changes and rebrandings and hiatuses. It eventually led me here, and I couldn’t be more happy with where I am and what I’ve learned and what I’ve written. ❤️
