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!

Batman: Year One

Batman: Year One - This is my first official Batman comic book, as well as my first official time reading a comic book ever. After researching all the essential reading, looking specifically into Batman continuity and days of waiting for my library request I was finally able to get my hands on this book. And to be completely honest, I was sort of nervous reading it. I mean what if I didn't like it? Would I be smited by the Comic Gods? Would this taint my comic experience forever? My dramatics felt appropriate at the time. Now I'm glad to say that this book lived up to and beyond my well researched expectations. It was a great look into the beginning of Batman, having only known him from cartoons, movies, and pop culture it's really quite amazing to see his origin story told from a very real perspective that being a teenager not introduced to the comics I don't normally see when their advertising belt buckles and Halloween costumes. I will say however that at this point in my reading I really have nothing else to say beyond that. This I feel was a great place to start and it has excited me to read more but I have no real basis to judge the unjudgeable. Everything about this was amazing but I would expect nothing less.
