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 5 - Aya Nakahara The (still very one-sided) love story of Koizumi and Otani continues! In this volume, Risa and Otani (and everyone else) are dealing with the aftermath of Risa's heartbreak. A back and forth between optimism and defeat, for every one step forward, they take two Risa-size steps back.When Love*Com wants to wallow, it wallows hard. I didn't like this volume one as much as the previous because it is just so wallow-y. However, I do like that the story is taking on a natural progression and that things are evolving. But you know, laying the groundwork for a relationship is exhausting. At this point I just really want to see Otani be on the other side of things for once. I mean common! Someone needs to light a fire under that boy's butt.
