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!

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls)

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You - Ally Carter I did not like this book as much as I thought I would. I love the concept! An all-girls academy for teen spies in training sounds awesome in theory, but despite the originality this didn't have the flare I was expecting from such a cool idea.It wasn't something different. I'd Tell You I Love You quickly fell into a familiar YA structure and was a lot fluffier then I would have wished for. We're dealing with spies here and because of that I expected a little more action, or suspense, or something I could relate back to the spy genre. I needed more then school girls and a cute boy. However, as this series has progressed I've heard a lot of praise from fans. Couple that with the fact that I love Ally Carter's [b:Heist Society|6574102|Heist Society (Heist Society, #1)|Ally Carter|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1359254479s/6574102.jpg|6767235] series and you can bet that I will be giving this series a reluctant second chance. Expect a re-read of this first book at some point in the near future.
