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!

Progress Post: Spymaster's Lady & Ten Things I Love About You

The Spymaster's Lady - Joanna Bourne Ten Things I Love About You - Julia Quinn

Originally posted on GR in 2010. But I liked this quote and wanted to remember it.


The Spymaster's Lady:

And since this one is a one liner as well, might as well put it in with the other. Save some space. Also from 2010.
