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!

Fruits Basket: v.14

Fruits Basket, Volume 14 - Natsuki Takaya This volume starts off with giving us the first real opportunity to get some insight into Rin's backstory and her past ties with Haru. Rin probably has one of my favourite character designs in Fruits Basket as a whole. You can tell just by looking at her the kind of life she's experienced and that makes learning about her history that much more compelling. However, what really caught my attention though was Yuki's revelation at the end of this volume. It was absolutely stupendous! I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying his character. The direction his character is taking is really interesting. I didn't think the student council group would play such a large role in his growth but I'm really curious to see where he ends up, which is more then I can say compared to my feelings for his at the beginning of the series when he was very much overshadowed by my love for Kyo.
