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 liked this book more than I thought I would from reading the back, but I am not in love with it. It was a good, quick read with two main characters who I thought were well developed.
The only problem I had was that sometimes, when switching voices, there would only be a paragraph before it switched again. Now I know Ms Bradley was setting up for future novels, but some of it just seems unneeded. A secondary character who we already know spends a lot of time reading, is, for a useless paragraph, traveling from the library to a different room.
So. Better editing would have been nice, but overall a nice read.
