About Julia

Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.

I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.

Feel free to follow and reblog!

Just Finished Reactions: Say Yes to the Marquess

Say Yes to the Marquess - Tessa Dare

This was adorable! I am really enjoying the Castles Ever After series. Rafe and Clio were such a lovely match. Heartrending at times but still, they just had this thing about them where you had to cheer for them to eventually make it. 


There was a nice little surprise twist for me (and Clio) at the end that I liked too. I just overall really enjoyed this read. 


Definitely recommend this to historical romance fans or fans of the forbidden love trope. Great read!


Side note - can Avon please stop it with these pun titles? I am a sucker for a good pun, but these ones are just killing me.
