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 Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever

The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever - Julia Quinn

I read this book sometime in 2007 and just picked it up again to reintroduce me to the characters before I read the next book,What Happens in London. I love Julia Quinn, but this one is not one of my favorites due to the lack of really anything happening. I know not every book can have a virgin stealing pirate or a epic wedding stopping declaration of love, but I just felt that there could have been more. 

It is still a good book. But Quinn has better.
