Books, Reviews, and general awesomeness



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: The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The Help - Kathryn Stockett, Adriana Colombo, Paola Frezza Pavese

I don't know if it deserved as much as of the hype that it got. Or maybe I was lost inside the hype. 

That said I liked the book, but didn't love it. I didn't hate it either. It just dragged a bit in the second half. The premise and the story itself is awesome though.
