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: Secrets of a Summer Night

Secrets of a Summer Night - Lisa Kleypas

As the first book in the Wallflowers quartet, this book does a good job at giving us a little bit of information into who the characters are, but at the same time gives weight to the heroine.

The problem I had with this book is that toward the end it just kind of meandered along, with too much detail into what was going on. And it wasn't even that interesting of happenings. I feel like a good deal of editing, especially the latter parts could have made this a better book. But it was still enjoyable.
