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!

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Vol. 1 - Hayao Miyazaki, David Lewis, Toren Smith, Kaori Inoue, Joe Yamazaki, Walden Wong, Izumi Evers Premeditating: Nausicaä holds a very special place in my heart. I feel in love with the story and Nausicaä herself from the movie adaptation right at the perfect time. I swear I watched that thing over and over and over again in a single day. However, I had no idea that this story was also in graphic novel form and written by Miyazaki himself! I always considered him to be a director and screenplay writer, a genius of the animated world, I never thought he also worked in print! This will definitely be something I'll have to check out soon. I always wanted to see more of Nausicaä and her beautiful story. Hopefully this won't disappoint.
