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!

Every Girl's Dream (The Mediator, #3.5) - Meg Cabot So far The Mediator series has earned threes across the board for books one to four from me, so I didn't have high expectations for this short story. Yet somehow I've come away disappointed with Cabot. This is where I question when this was written. If it was written before Cabot had really developed the series then that would make sense. The development just isn't there, the character depth isn't there, the life of the story and writing consistency just isn't there. The story is just Suze constantly calling herself a "freak" in various ways and gushing over Jesse in the most cringe worthy manner. There I just saved you two minutes. I would suggest readers skip it, especially if there not yet finished the series. What has me most disappointed with this is the quality. I wish if authors are going to go the route of having a supplementary short story that they make sure it's truly worth it.
