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: When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James

When Beauty Tamed the Beast - James Griffin, Eloisa James

Better than the Cinderella one by far. I don't normally give 5 stars to romance novels but I really enjoyed this one. the characters were real flawed but lovable. the story was a fresh modernization on the beauty and the beast trope. maybe I am bias because I love the premise but I really enjoyed it. if you are bored with the normal historical but don't want to venture into another genre this is your book.
