Books, Reviews, and general awesomeness



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!

Short thoughts upon completion: I don't think I would have liked this as much if Jeremy Irons was not reading it to me.

"Listening to Jeremy Irons read this book to me is like a dream come true. Except that his voice turns me on... then I listen to the content and am squicked."
