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 Amber Spyglass

The Amber Spyglass - Philip Pullman

The third book in Pullman's His Dark Material's series, this book had me completely engulfed. The only downside is that the completeness that you would expect from the last in a trilogy is not neatly wrapped up and left me wanting to know more. It felt rushed at the end but is still a good read.


Originally published on GR in Dec 2007. I talked about this one as well in one of my RetroReviews... which I can bet that one was full of more OMG SO AMAZING. lol
