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!

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Jim  Dale, Lewis Carroll I can imagine had I been introduced to this story as a kid I would have eaten it up. Now however, I feel like I admire Alice in Wonderland, but I don't love it. It is a little sad for me to realize this because there are just so many wonderful stories that have been inspired by and adapted from this book that I love so dearly. I feel like I should love it, but right now is not the time in my life in which I can. I have both read it and listened to it read, but both times I was not transported to Wonderland in the way I had hoped to be. I don't know, we'll see if that changes with time and circumstance.
