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!

Mind Over Magic - William Rabkin Having been a fan of the show for a while now, I was incredibly excited when I learnt there were book adaptations. This is the first of the Psych books that I've read and now that I'm done I can say that I did enjoyed the story but not in the ways that I thought I would knowing the show. My problem with the book was that a lot of it was build up for the plot. I expected more Shawn-Gus banter and I was disappointed of how little interaction there was between the characters. Something that I guess is to be expected, is that Psych is a character driven show but Rabkin doesn't have much he can do in terms of character development in the book since their main stage is still the show. He can't contradict future Psych plots and his writing seems very conscious of that. However, the story as a whole outside of the characters is great! The mystery was "out of this world", but if this wasn't a Psych story I would not have enjoyed it as much as I did.
