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 4 - Aya Nakahara The (most definitely one-sided) love story of Risa and Otani continues! The name of the game is stupidity and the grad-prize winner is Otani! In this volume, Risa has accepted her feelings towards Otani, but things get complicated when she finally has to put these emotions out in the open. If only he was smart enough to realize it himself! This has been one of my favourite volumes so far! It's a roller coaster of desperation as you watch the frustration rise. I know frustration isn't normally a positive, but here it is the best thing ever. I think that having all these ups and downs in their relationship is what makes this good stand-alone love story. The story is just so cute yet pathetic and overall it really keeps true to the characters.
