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

Lynda

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
