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!

Seiho Boys' High School!, Vol. 1 - Kaneyoshi Izumi This was a strange one. In the world of shojo, this book is an oddity. The story follows a group of boys living at a secluded boarding school. They are horny, lonely, and looking for love at every possible opportunity with no success what so ever. At first I didn't think I would like this. It's definitely not my thing and if the first three volumes weren't on the library shelf I probably wouldn't have bothered. I was pleasantly surprised. The book is broken up into three main stories and an unrelated side story. The art is pretty fantastic and each male is an individual which I mark as an accomplishment in and of itself. The writing is interesting. It reads very real, yet still has that shojo vibe to it. I really, really did not expect to like this one bit, but there was a nice balance between the heartfelt moments and the no-holds horniness. It's not for everyone, but worth a try. I'm interested enough to at least read the next one, which may not be a ringing endorsement, but certainly unexpected. This was a weird 2.7999 STARS rating.
