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!

Oh. My. Gods. - Tera Lynn Childs Oh. My, Gods. is a great book to just sit back and read while taking a break from the weight of more heavy young adult fiction.It's a fun book! Light without being air-headed, fun without being overly peppy, and cute without being completely made of fluff. The story consists of all the normal ploys of your average "new girl at school" story, but with the added excitement of the Greek gods. I'm always up for a new and different take on bringing Greek myth into modern reality.I liked the story and what it had to offer, although there were some flaws with pacing and rushing through key events. It's easy to forgive these things if you know what sort of book you're reading. I would definitely recommend this to younger YA readers if you're hoping to get into Greek retellings.
