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!

Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining - Anne Mazer Growing up I loved reading, picture books amazed me and my bed times stories were never long enough. But when it came time for me to read on my own, growing up meant moving on to chapter books. This was not a smooth transition. My love of reading faded in those many years when beginner chapter books were what I was expected to read, when all I wanted to do was return to the colour illustrations and beautiful prose of the younger children's section.But then along came Abby Hayes. This entire series got me through my reluctant reading period. I learned from Abby, she taught me new things while fostering my growing love of the colour purple and writing.This will always be the book that defined my early reading experience. One that was all my own and special in indescribable ways.
