Reading Robyn

I am a lover of libraries, a reader of everything, a girl easily swayed by pretty pictures, and overall just your average, nerdy fairy princess.


2013 is the year I'm finally keeping up a regular reading blog Reading Robyn! There I post extended versions of my GR reviews so be sure to check that out!


I always seem to be on the move having lived in seven cities and counting in my nineteen years. I'm not on the run from the law as many have assumed (at least I don't think so), but moving around has given me an appreciation for how places make stories and people make memories. While change is inevitable, books are the friends that I take with me from place to place. They comforted me when I was sick, they push me to continue to learn and grow into myself, and most importantly they opened me up to the possibilities of living in thousands of places all at once.


I primarily read YA fiction, as well as a lot of graphic novels and manga. However, I tend to be this combination of odd reads, so expect the unexpected!

The Sign of Four

The Sign of Four -  Arthur Conan Doyle Out of the four Sherlock Holmes novel, I probably enjoyed this one the least. It was the second one I read and for all that I tried I just couldn't understand it. I wanted to get into the story, but something was preventing me from becoming truly engrossed like I've been with the other three novels. Because of this I really do want to re-read this and see if taking another go after now having more experience with Doyle's writing style will change anything.
