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!

B.O.D.Y., Volume 2 - Ao Mimori Aaaaaaaaaand you lost me. I was hoping after a okay start to the series in volume one that volume two would up the anti and help me connect more to the main character's budding romance. Unfortunately, nope.Instead of a fleshed out story we go right into the deep end as B.O.D.Y jumps into unnecessary dramatics and equally unnecessary plot turns. Now, I know that drama (and over the top drama at that) are staples of this genre of manga but this is only volume two. At this point I'm not invested enough to care in the characters antics.The storyline and characters were promising but the execution of the plot was not to my taste.
