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: Promise Me Tonight by Sara Lindsey

Promise Me Tonight - Sara Lindsey

There were times when reading this book that I literally laughed out loud. Sadly, these times did not outweigh the times I was sighing in exasperation. 

The character's are not bad. They have potential, but they fit too well into types that I could read anywhere written better. 

It's her first novel, so I may give her another chance once she has had some time to polish things up, but right now it was just repetitive, boring and not engaging. 

It didn't help that my eBook was somehow missing most of chapter 21, but at that point I had given up the redemption of this book. 

Too much misunderstanding, not enough sexual tension. But there were times when I laughed at loud. 

I may try Miss Lindsey again in a couple of years.
