I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

Lovereading does a stella job in promoting both new and established authors.

Iris Clements

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
