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!

Island of the Blue Dolphins

Island of the Blue Dolphins - Scott O'Dell Island of the Blue Dolphin is undeniably a interesting story, unfortunately I had to read for school which hurt my reading experience to an extreme. I may have enjoyed the novel more if I didn't have my specific classroom experience. When you have to apply critical thinking in an attempt to get the one correct answer it's not always fun. Add that with the experience of having to read aloud in class, which resulted in one of my first panic attacks, and a group project diorama. Seriously, a DIORAMA for ENGLISH. I was spent by this book, but it wasn't the books fault, it was just bad timing.
