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!

Deal Alert: Any Duchess Will Do by Tessa Dare

Any Duchess Will Do - Tessa Dare

Hey romance lovers! Today's Kindle daily deal has Any Duchess Will Do on sale for $1.99! That is a steal. This book was really good. Having read little Dare prior to this, I was worried if I would like it. I really did. And it doesn't matter if you read the others in the series. I didn't and still really enjoyed this book.

Here is a snippet of my review:


This book was hilariously, bark laughter funny. It reminded me of the earlier Bridgerton books by Julia Quinn, which says a lot about it's lightness content and how much I am bound to love it.

The poignant parts are poignant, the funny parts are funny, and the sexytimes are hot. What more can you ask for?
