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. 02 - Kazune Kawahara So, I've decided that Asa (Yoh's younger sister) has all the makings of a future sociopath. I may be a little harsh, the translation might be causing some problems, but there are some moments in this volume that just make Asa look like this crazy girl. Such a crazy girl. It was weird to see her all of a sudden develop these ticks that leave even the characters in the book a little confused. She has some issues, but at least it was still entertaining to read about! As for Yoh and Haruna, they are just so cute. You know where this is all heading, but it's fun to just watch it all play out. It reminds me of Love*Com (Lovely*Complex), Volume 1 in that way. The situation and characters are different, but if you really squint you can see quite a few more similarities between these two series then you might expect to see. hmmmmmm cough As soon as I put this one down I didn't even try to stop myself from grabbing the next one. I know when I'm really enjoying something when that instant read reflex starts to kick in!
