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 Invention of Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo Cabret - I first got my hand on this book through my aunt. At the time she was a buyer for the book section of a grocery store and got this book as an ARC for consideration. I don't know if she gave it to me because she thought it was great and that I should read it or if she had put it in the discard pile, but I ended up loving it dearly either way. When I read this I was in that stage where I didn't want to touch anything over 200 pages and from the outside this looks like a pretty thick book. But then it sucked me in and got my reluctant butt engaged in the story. My only regret is that it was an ARC, which meant it was uncorrected and still a little rough around the edges. I would love to re-read this and see what the final product really looked like.
