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!

The Wallflower, Vol. 2 - Tomoko Hayakawa, David Ury I just love how weird this manga is! I mean honestly, the events that happen in this volume chapter-to-chapter have very little correlation aside from a obvious rapist trend but it is still just so funny to read. The characters are also becoming more established or I should probably say, more distinguishable from each other. I'm actually starting to pickup on their names and faces! I'm also becoming increasingly in love with the art style, especially when it comes to Sunako who is drawn in a rounded chibi-esk style for the bulk of the manga. Even when she's in the same panel as another character like on page 161, she is still in that art style even when the other character isn't. It has this great contrast that I'm not sure I've seen before, that really jumps out at you.
