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: Devil's Bride by Stephanie Laurens

Devil's Bride - Stephanie Laurens

Painfully obvious "mystery." Had to skim through the last 50 pages of the book. There was just too much of everything. I enjoyed the Cynster family... except for the horrid, horrid nicknames, but even so I just could get past the utter banality of this book. Never has a book had me skimming through the sex scenes before this one. Overall, I am disappointed. I wanted to like it, but just can't.
