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 Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #2)

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #2) - This installment of the Percy Jackson series has lived up to my previous expectations and I found myself drawn back into Percy's world quite effortlessly. In the first book of the series it was all about introducing us to Greek gods in a modern setting, this time around Riordan incorporates the characters found in the epic Greek tale of The Odyssey. Percy takes a walk in the shoes of Odysseus as he goes on an unauthorized quest to The Sea of Monsters in search of Grover and the magical Golden Fleece with the hopes of saving a dieing camp half blood. This time around without Grover he also has a new companion a young, homeless Cyclops, Tyson. I really enjoyed reading this book and was excited to see it had added some aspects that lacked in the previous book such as, more attention is paid to developing the main characters and their relationships, Percy puts a bit more thought into what it exactly means to be Poseidon's son, Questions surrounding the specifics of the story are answered with more clarity, and there is more of a flow between the original Greek myths and how they are incorporated into the story.I have a feeling that as the series continues and the plot and characters continue to develop things will simply get better and better.
