I am an senior who is an avid reader of all genre of books from mystery to western and anything in between. I give accurate and honest reviews. As of August 2016, I no longer review erotica, explicit, or graphic sexual books. This was not an indictment of any genre or author, rather a decision I was led to make. I own book review blog www.verasbookreviewsandstuff.com on which I post my review as well as posting on Goodreads.com, Facebook.Vera's book reviews, Amazon, Barns and Nobles, googleplus, googleplay, onlinebookclub.org, theromancereviews, thereadingreviews, Librarything, Booksamillion, Kobo, itunes, twitter, tumbler, and linkedin.
