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: Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake - Sarah MacLean

I could really relate to Callie in the beginning of the book. Passive, letting life just go by, it really struck home. I fell in love when she made the list. Oh how great a heroine. I lost some of that love as the book went on and she "fell in love so long ago from the one guy who gave her the time of day" Sigh. It was well written and entertaining if not predictable. Not horrid, but not super amazing. I will be picking up the next in the series though!
