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!

Love*Com (Lovely*Complex), Volume 14 - Aya Nakahara I'll start by saying that this manga series is great overall and the end of this volume pretty much lets the reader know that things will be return to more normal shenanigans in the next book, but honestly? This volume (plus the last one) just pushed themselves over the line of believable ridiculousness. I always like the quirky nature of Koizumi and Otani's story lines and I don't even mind that much of their plot is about other people trying to break them up. HOWEVER, this sort of off-the-charts drama is so unnecessary that it made me cringe all the whole way through the ordeal. I'm sure the series can recover from this and I can completely delete this part from my memories, it's just disappointing. Pre-Volume 13 the manga had managed to be a romance story with all the normal trappings without going to far outside of the box. Now I just hope they find their way back into the box so I can have a satisfying conclusion without any more of this hubbub.
