I have been a big fan of Rose and Rosie since I first discovered them on YouTube, for the people who don’t know who they are, they’re a British lesbian couple who have a substantial fanbase of young adults and adults. They pride themselves on the transparent on-screen relationship they have and have earned themselves many awards from LGBT award ceremonies. The British LGBT awards saw them nab up an award of ‘celebrity rising star’ and the Lovie awards recognised them for the best ‘creators for change’.
I was very excited when they released information that they were writing and soon to be publishing their very first book. I knew if the content of the book was anything like their vlogs I was going to really enjoy it.
I preordered it and waited in anticipation for it to arrive! I felt even more excitement when I tweeted a picture of it and Rosie liked it!
The book is fantastic, as expected. They cover some really interesting topics, one being Mental Health, which is great to see. I don’t want to give too much away as spoilers suck, but they alternate writing, so you get to see the point of view from them both on each topic. The style of writing is something that appeals to me, it’s chatty and feels like they are talking to you, rather than just putting words on paper.
Being a student, I was slightly concerned about being able to afford the book, but at just £15 I thought it was well priced! The book itself is eye catching and runs in true Rose and Rosie fashion! I started reading it straight away and within the first few pages I found myself laughing. If reading isn’t your strong point there is no need to worry, I found the writing easy to read with an upbeat flow to it.
I would 100% recommend this book AND their YouTube channel!
