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!

Goodnight Tweetheart

Goodnight Tweetheart - Teresa Medeiros It has its highs and it has its lows, but either way this is a pretty good fluffy romance.I'll start by heartily applauding the author for managing the twitter 140 format. She did it better then I thought possible and as the conversations went on the more interesting her wit became. Although it did feel, especially at the start, that the twitter format was just an excuse to write chat-room dialog after that nick-pick part of my brain checked out I really didn't mind. I'll be interested to see if in the coming years any other authors try to take on current social media formats for story telling. As for the story itself, it was good if not a little forgettable. Very boy meets girl basics. However, I ended up enjoying Mark and Abby's twitter romantics to such a degree that I did find myself a little attached to them by the end of the book. There is a lull, conversations that make you wonder if this is actually going anywhere, TV/movie references that start to weigh down the story, and witty repertoire that left me wanting something other then witty repertoire BUT it was still good. Not amazing but a fun, sappy, fluffy, poppy read that didn't take a lot of brain power and left me awing and cooing.With that in mind though, my recommendation is that you skip on the book and go watch "You've Got Mail". If takes about the same amount of time out of your day and you get to laugh at dial-up. Your welcome.
