About Amber

Let's start off with the basic information. My name is Amber, I'm eighteen and I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I study journalism, but it's not for me so after this I want to study animation on the University of Arts in Utrecht.

Besides reading, my hobby's involve playing the piano and the violin, drawing, shopping and spending way too much time on Tumblr and YouTube. I mostly draw portraits of people and I also own a Wacom Tablet so I often draw digitally as well.
On Tumblr I have two different accounts: a band account and a book account, the links to my book tumblr is in the right sidebar under 'Follow Us'. I have a band account because love Rock music and going to concerts and a book account because, well...I think you can figure out why. On YouTube I mostly watch Booktubers, PewDiePie, DanIsNotOnFire and AmazingPhil. 
I also spend a lot of time watching anime. Tokyo Ghoul and Black Butler are my favorite ones and I also love Studio Ghibli movies. I'm always open for new anime recommendations!

So let's talk about some of my favourite's now: 
  • Fav tv show: Game Of Thrones, Outlander
  • Favorite Anime: Black Butler and Tokyo Ghoul
  • Fav movies: Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke
  • Fav books: The Throne Of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, The Song Of Ice And Fire series by George R R Martin, the A Court Of Thorns And Roses trilogy by Sarah J Maas, The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
Now some random facts about me:
  • My pen name is 'Anna Alexandra' and I use it on all my social media. I actually like that name way more than my own.
  • I hate oranges and everything that tastes like orange. I think it's disgusting
  • I am 18 and I've already travelled to 7 different countries!
  • I've always been obsessed with fashion and love to dress well. It has gotten so bad that I have no closet space left and don't wear the same thing twice in two weeks.
  • I love the color blue
  • I cosplay and love going to anime and other nerdish cons and events 
  • I play the piano and the violin 

Something important I want to talk about now is the Fantasy novel Shania and I wrote. It all started off as an extra school exercise for school. They told us to make anything we wanted so we decided to start writing a book. We handed in the first 13 chapters and ended up getting an A+ for it! Because we enjoyed writing the story so much, we decided to continue writing and actually managed to finish the first novel. It, unfortunately, hasn't been published yet, so if you are a literary agent looking for an exciting new project, make sure to email me: amber.arbeitstein@hotmail.com. Out book is called 'The Nameless', you can read it here.

That was probably all there was to know about me. I hope you will enjoy our blog. Make sure to leave a comment and share your thoughts!
