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!

How Nearly Everything Was Invented by the Brainwaves - Jilly MacLeod, Lisa Swerling, Ralph Lazar This book gives you a lot to look at, with pages upon pages of cute little drawings and short paragraphs of just about nearly everything. It is the perfect sort of book for someone looking to spark interest in invention, science and history for younger kids who have reading skills but still want a lot to look at. I think that this could also be a great jumping off point for them to go off and expand what they know through the Internet and projects.
