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!

Dramacon Volume 3: v. 3

Dramacon, Vol. 3 - Svetlana Chmakova The last volume of the Dramacon series is probably the best of all three. A quirky, bouncy, fun little manga! Dramacon is far from perfect but is still a great beginner intro to manga, Cons, and manga-style romantic drama.The thing I probably love most about the book and the series all together, is the art. The art is wonderful, the character design is wonderful, the details and adorableness are all wonderful. End Gush. Throughout the whole series the storyline is pretty much hyped up on caffeine. If you've made/make it to the third one you'll notice the tendency for the story to jump from one character to the next, or one situation to the next. BUT with the tone and style of the manga itself, this Skippy little number actually fits the book. The characters are let loose upon the Con (once again) and chaos ensues, mostly relationship chaos. As we try to wrap up the Christie and Matt train-wreck we get what we all want through a sequence of all but random accuracies. Fine by me. Cute as hell.Not something I would recommend to just anyone, but if the shoe fits!
