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!
hmm. I am not as enchanted as the world seems to be with this. Initial thoughts with a longer review to follow.
I liked the unique story-line where it isn't a big misunderstanding and in fact the hero was an ass.
The characters were not horrid, but I don't think super fleshed out either. They were okay, unique enough but not amazing.
So what the hell is with the missing seven months? I am sad we missed this section of their development. And also I'm torn. If this book would have been full length with the characterizations not growing and keeping them one note-esque, then I wouldn't have liked that, but as it stands I feel like the actual falling in love and healing took place off screen. So sadness there.
I'll flesh this out when I am not on a tablet :-)
