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!

Sailor Moon Vol. 2 (Sailor Moon (Kodansha))

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Vol. 2 - Naoko Takeuchi, Naoko Takeuchi, William Flanagan Now that we've gotten all the introductions out of the way, I'm excited to see where Sailor Moon will take me. This volume was all about the mythology. It answers a lot of the questions posed in volume one. And although it didn't have a lot of information about the Guardians themselves, the mission has become infinitely more clear. This can only be a good thing as the plot quickly progresses. I'm still surprised how much happens in just these first two books. In just this volume alone there were over four different plot lines and they managed to each have a satisfying arc. All the characters are being used, even introducing more active characters.There were some points early in the story that had me cringing a little bit, mostly because of the budding relationship between Tuxedo Mask and Usagi. But I am happy to report on the insta-love front, that the whole "haven't even had a proper conversation yet" has been acknowledged! Yay acknowledgement! One of my major qualms with instant relationships is when no one even thinks that things are going to fast. And with their history finally be divulged in non-vague terms, I'm becoming more accepting of the two of them with their "destiny" and whatever. We'll see if this series finally hits five stars with the next book. I'm on a major manga kick, (my deepest apologies to my non-manga reading friends if you see this) and with the next two books all lined up for me I can't wait to keep reading!
