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!

Crimson Hero, Volume 2 - Mitsuba Takanashi Oh, Crimson Hero. I'm trying to like you, but all of your characters are so unlikeable and melodramatic that I want to punch them in the face. Nobara is still a good protagonist, but I needed something a little bit more from this volume than what I got. The whole thing was pretty upsetting, especially that volleyball match. I know that the match was suppose to upset me. I know that it was intended to make me angry. However, from what I understand of volleyball as a sport, it is about more then serving the ball so hard that you're physically hurting your opponent with it. It's like if you were playing hockey and were aiming the puck so it'd hit the goalie in the throat. It's just not done! I'm going to continue with the series because I have volumes three and four in front of me, but I just don't know what this author is going for here. She obviously has a respect for the sport and wants to convey that, but that doesn't exactly translate to an interesting story.
