Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Some surprises there and several of these were short, but I pushed myself extra for Bingo. One read was a Netgalley that didn't go on Bingo. I'm just finishing one more of those and have two more waiting, but I have some longer Classic books lined up for some of my remaining Bingo squares. If I finish all my Bingo and Netgalley reads on October, I'll be happy.
