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!
I just couldn't get into this. I don't know if it was my fault or the authors, but I just didn't like it. I had almost no connection to the characters and things just seemed to drag.
Although I stopped halfway though I am pretty sure I could predict the ending right now.
I just don't want to force myself to read a book, you know? And that is what I was doing in this case.
So I pass.
Also, though I never usually notice this, the heroine says "Fair enough." I really don't think they said that in 1811. I think I noticed because I was so bored!
I just read some more reviews and I think I figured out what it was. The characters lost their sense of self very quickly. Lucinda was acting against everything I had ever been told to believe about her. And Will.. urgh.
