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!
I usually don't read fantasy novels because they come in a series and I do not get a sense of completion after each book. Not only that but I am bogged down with information I feel that I didn't need to know.
But not with this book. Not only was I interested in the characters and the alternate reality, when I was finished I thought, "I could stop here and feel OK or read on!" The latter is more probable. It is a really interesting and intriguing book and I am excited to learn what happens to Alvin in his future travels.
