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!

Speechless - Hannah Harrington Premeditating: I'm looking forward to this more then I thought I would be. I seen a lot of buzz about the cover, but now that people are starting to read it I'm thinking this is something I have to keep an eye out for. Saving June was full of really well written characters and story especially for the hit or miss road-trip sub-genre of YA, so I'm really curious what Harrington can do with this. Cover thoughts: Sometimes less is more. It's a daring move to not go in the direction of all the super done-up covers and in doing so this will stand out like a spot light. Brilliant from a marketing stand point!
