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!


Cheesy Life Quote: "In this world through which I travel, I am endlessly creating myself." - Frantz Fanon

My Mother Is a French Fry and Further Proof of My Fuzzed-Up Life - Colleen Sydor Targeted towards younger young-adults, Fuzzed-Up Life focuses on a mother-daughter relationship where the daughter has the perspective of a spoiled child and the mother just does not see the obvious animosity. When did people stop communicating with each other? Does the young-adult genre cease to exist when people actually sit down and talk to each other about their feelings?This book is not anything special and in my opinion should just be tossed aside in favour of something more along the lines of books by Maureen Johnson or Brad Barkley/Heather Hepler.
