Gaynor Passmore

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

Jen Rainbow

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

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

Lynda

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

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.
