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: The Lay of the Last Minstrel by Walter Scott

The Lay of the Last Minstrel (Classic Reprint) - Walter Scott

"Alas! Fair dames, your hopes are vain!
My harp has lost the enchanting strain,
Its lightness would my age reprove:
My hairs are grey, my limbs are old
My heart is dead, my veins are cold;
I many not, must not, sing of love."
Canto II XXX

The only book I've read not for school that was not written in prose and was not poetry. Very interesting.
