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!

Progress Post: Lady Chatterley's Lover

Lady Chatterley's Lover - D.H. Lawrence, Emilia Fox
04/30/2012       "Holy shit. Reading this I literally had my jaw open at some of the descriptions (some moved me to hysterics). I just started part 4 of 5. I can 1) see how some people find this objectionable and 2) see why it was banned all over the place"
