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 Midwife's Apprentice

The Midwife's Apprentice - Karen Cushman I was assigned The Midwife's Apprentice for an English course forever ago. However, to my surprise, I still remember this book and how much I enjoyed it despite how much of a reluctant reader I was at the time. Historical fiction has never been my cup of tea if only for the fact that the genre can be notoriously dreary. Back when I first read this I was just starting to cement my opinion that all books for middle grade readers were created to make me hate reading, however The Midwife's Apprentice surprised me. I loved the narrative and was completely engaged with the story the whole way through. I really want to re-read this one and see if I still connect with it!
