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 & Progress Post: Brody by Emma Lang

Brody - Emma Lang

Now, you see two stars, but that didn't mean I didn't enjoy it. I think my guilty pleasures are historical westerns. Is the book written well? It's okay. I thought Olivia was a bit too perfect a lot of the times. And Brody was alright I guess. 

The story was engaging and westerny which is what I was looking for. I think I liked Matthew a bit more, but the series isn't horrible. It's a nice break from all the regency :)
