At Lovereading we’re passionate about all the books we feature.

All the books we feature on the site are featured because we think they deserve to stand out from the crowd of the many thousands of other titles published each month. However, sometimes in a month, we wish to give that little bit more emphasis to a title and to make it a 'Book of the Month'.

You’ll find those titles here in our Books of the Month page.
