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!

Priestess (Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play, Vol. 1) - Yuu Watase Back when I first started reading manga I remember sitting on the floor in the newly discovered manga section of Chapters (a book store) and reading Fushigi Yugi. The art was striking and previous to this I had only read science fiction manga. However, the only thing I really remember about Fushigi Yugi is how hard it became to obtain. I read the first couple of volumes, but eventually I just petered off trying to find it. This is definitely something I want to check out again and see if I'd still enjoy it now.
