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!

Case Closed, Vol. 2 - Gosho Aoyama Conan goes back to school, 1st grade style. A new clue emerges about the mysterious men in black or are they "the syndicate"? And Conan takes cute to a whole new level. I don't know how these guys do it. I mean, people are dying left, right, and center and somehow the story still manages to be cute and silly while handling death seriously. I wish more time could be put into the chapter by chapter cases. They felt a little rushed this volume but that may have been due to me just reading too fast. It just sucks me in! The writers and artist behind everything are just amazing. If only all crime writing was this good!
