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!

High School Debut, Vol. 01 - Kazune Kawahara This was a pretty great start to this odd and funny series. It's been quite sometime, but I still remember that I watched the live action movie for this manga and was impressed by what I saw. It seemed perfectly cute, which it also is in manga form, so I'm glad I've finally gotten around to reading the series properly. (I was super lucky to just come across the first three volumes at the library.) Overall I liked it less then I expected too, but that has little to do with the actual story and more to do with my problems with the pacing and the way everyone is always talking with exclamation points ... ! After every sentence! Who yells this much?! It was like the CAPS LOCK was stuck! Some of those sentences could have easily ended in a period! Seriously people! But aside from that, this was really funny and just so adorable it's like an IV of fluffy rainbows and crippling romantic anxiety!
