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!

The Princess Diaries - Meg Cabot I liked the book, but I can't say I didn't expect more.The Princess Diaries movies were a big part of my sleepover history and no matter what I do I just can't help but do some nostalgic comparison between the two. I wanted to get sucked into this series and find another way to enjoy something I used to love so much, but I don't think it's a good idea for me to continue after this book just to try and recreate a feeling I had once. My nostalgia is only hurting my enjoyment, so why try and force it?
