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. 1 - Gosho Aoyama I love this series! The art is beautiful. Each character is distinct and the horror of dead bodies and crime scenes are not glossed over CSI style. The plot has the perfect elements of the over arcing story of Conan's "men in black" and their mysterious poison that has shrunk him down to half the size he used to be but still twice the detective. With individual cases we get to see Conan flex his unique problem solving mussels to catch the bad guy and save the day. All without people knowing a six year old with the bow tie is working behind the scenes.This is the second time I'm reading the manga. Last time around I got pretty far in but I have completely forgotten what book I last left off on and I don't want to miss thing! So I'm going back through and honestly I don't mind a bit. These stories are really some of the best constructed mysteries I've ever read.
