Reader Spotlight: A Little Pink in the Cornfields

This year, we're doing "Reader Spotlight" posts on a bi-weekly basis. We want to feature readers who have been actively following CLC for a while. We're hoping you can get to know some new friends this way. One of the joys of having CLC is that readers have connected with each other, as a result. That's one of the reasons it was started up in the first place...to bring chick lit fans together from all over the world! We've made some amazing friends because of this blog and we hope you'll get to do so too!

If you'd like to be spotlighted sometime this year, please contact us.

See our previous Reader Spotlight posts.

Note from Melissa A: Amber has been a regular visitor to CLC for quite some time and I enjoy reading her comments on our giveaway posts. Her name always shows up with "A Little Pink in the Cornfields" at the end, so I can easily differentiate her from all the other Ambers who comment. :) Of course, that's the name of her blog, being that she lives in Iowa. I'm happy to hear that she will be getting married this summer (right around my birthday). :) Send her your congrats!

Name: Amber Johnson (soon to be Kuehler!)
Age: 32
Location: Des Moines, IA

How did you find Chick Lit Central?
I think it was through a google search about three years ago … I had been blogging for a few years but had just discovered book blogs and was searching for some blogs that featured books I loved. That was when I stumbled on Chick Lit Central!

What are your top FIVE favorite chick lit novels of all time?
There are SO many great novels to choose from, so this was hard! Something Borrowed and Something Blue by Emily Giffin, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella, and P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern.

What do you do when you're not reading? 
When I am not reading for fun, I am working as a 4th grade teacher, which I LOVE! I am also very active and enjoy running. I’m not a speedy runner, but I love being able to accomplish long distances. I also love group fitness classes, like Zumba which is my current favorite. These days I am busy planning a July wedding and decorating our new house that we just bought!

I would love to connect with other readers! My Facebook page and tweets are private, but I’m pretty easygoing with requests! You can also connect with me on Goodreads.
