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!

Suite Scarlett

Suite Scarlett - Maureen Johnson has written a story that lets you indulge in the romanticism of the New York theatre scene of both past and present. Although the characters fall into the same ol' norms of the genre the writing keeps the story alive giving us some truly quotable lines and young adult references. In the end all came together very well for a nice, light, peppy read . I am especially grateful to this book because when I read it I was sitting in summer humidity that was possibly about to become my doom. I was sticky and yucky, but despite my overall mood I was liking this story. I was happy to let go and relax in a book with characters that felt real but still left room for eccentric and fabulous moments. It's these moments that make this type of book not only fun to read but good for the eccentric in all of us.
