Rose and Rosie are known for their candid and hilarious YouTube videos... but now they are taking oversharing to a whole new level. Discussing sexuality, revealing secrets and empowering others, OVERSHARE is a book packed with Rose and Rosie's unique take on friendships, fame, mental health and LGBT issues.
As visibly out members of the LGBT community, they open up about their own experiences, both together and as individuals, and have written this book in the hope that it gives strength to those who have faced similar difficulties. They are spreading a message of positivity and inclusivity, and want everyone to feel comfortable in their own skin, no matter what their sexuality.
Delve deep into the unfiltered highs and lows of Rose and Rosie's life: family relationships, secrets of a happy marriage, struggles with OCD and anxiety, finding love and navigating the world as a gay couple. Get ready to laugh, cry, cringe and OVERSHARE.
Dix and Spaughton, married British comedians whose Rose and Rosie YouTube channel has more than 819,000 subscribers, spare no secrets in this thoroughly enjoyable joint memoir. The first-person narrative toggles between the two women, who discuss their marriage, careers ("After months of uploading videos we discovered it was possible to earn money from YouTube"), and struggles with anxiety and depression. The most touching part of the book occurs when Rose shares her debilitating experiences with OCD, and the two suicide attempts that resulted from it. Dedicating their book to "every LGBT character who deserved better," the pair describes obstacles they've faced as a same-sex couple (they are sometimes asked, "Aren't you too pretty to be gay?"). Dix and Spaughton accomplish their lofty goal of educating, consoling, and entertaining, and do so in a fluid narrative. Extremely personal, this is a satisfying extension of the couple's online life particularly well-suited to readers who already follow them. Those seeking YouTube stardom may pick up some helpful tips as well.
Genuinely bought it to hear the stories they don’t make videos about. Better than expected, 10/10 would recommend. ❤️❤️❤️
Love these two! Y’all have kept me from feeling lonely when I have been at my loneliest. I don’t have a lot of healthy relationships to look up to and have had my fair share of unhealthy relationships. I’m glad I have y’all to look up to!! Book is amazing!! Thank you for sharing your lives with us all!!!
Amazing Read, they hold nothing back
Great book! The Rose’s really go deep 😉, and talk about their experiences with relationships, mental health, and sexuality. I applaud them for being real and not holding back on anything. I think this book has the ability to help a lot of people, letting them know they are not alone in their human experiences.
