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!

 A Book You Wanted to Read for a Long Time but Still Haven't


Oh, prompt. It's like you know me. Where to begin? Oh, hell! Let's just list it (since I should be getting ready for the annual family hayride.. we have to have been doing it over 15 years now! Excite!):


  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Ender's Game (I have a hard deadline of Friday Nov 8th for this)
  • Paradise Lost
  • Any book that I constantly put on my "Read these 12 books in the year 201X" 


Seriously. I am horrid at such things. I've marked a few off this year that I've been meaning to read.. but there are always more books to be read.
