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!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Books I was Forced to Read @ Broke and Bookish

Fatherland (Mortalis) - Robert Harris

I think this is a great topic this week! I have four on our list, including Fatherland. Head on over there and check it out. Link up your own lists! My part of the list was really "Favorite books teachers forced upon me" 


Also this cover is way less "YOU'RE READING A BOOK ABOUT NAZIS" then the one I read. I always felt like I had to hide the cover, more so than romance novels really, just in case someone thought I was reading a "How to" guide on Nazis or something. *shrug* High school logic.
