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: In the Electric Eden: Stories by Nick Arvin

In the Electric Eden: Stories - Nick Arvin

Out of these I definitely had favorites and not so favorites. I picked the book up on a whim at my library. Overall it was okay. Nothing I would pick up again, but most of the stories made me think, if not about life then at least how many pages were left until the next one started. 

Although, my inner computer scientist does have to give props to the phrase "binary smile."
