I wouldn't necessarily call historical fiction one of my favorite genres, but I have grown to enjoy it more and more.

These are some of the historical time periods I love learning about (sorry, they're a little heavy on the Western Europe side):
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
