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!

A Certain Slant of Light - Laura Whitcomb I loved this book. It was dark and mesmerizing in the best sort of ways. This is so unlike anything I had read before, especially when it comes to the paranormal genre. It's like a those old ghost stories that don't make you incredibly scared, but instead sad for how lost a person can become after death. Each character felt real. Hauntingly real. And the romance was one part magical and one part consequential. A warning should be said however, the story does touch upon religion/faith and personally I don't know how this would change the story for people who are religious. It may sour the ending for some. I would definitely advise caution. Personally, the ending was amazing for me. As things progressed, I didn't know how it would all tie together. But then it happens and it's unlike anything I would have expected to happen. I honestly need to read this again. Like right now.
