Star Books 2020 Competition!

Deborah Maclaren

By Deborah Maclaren on 1st April 2020

As you may well know, we have a section of our site where we proudly display our Star Books – the books that really stand out from the crowd of the thousands of books published and the hundreds of books we select and read every year here at Team LoveReading.

Similar to 2019, we will again in 2020 be running a competition to win the Star Books, but this year we plan to run it a little differently.

We have launched a brand new competition for you to win the first batch of LoveReading 2020 Star Books. These are also the first batch of LoveReading Books of the Year 2020.

The books chosen are our Star Books which are added onto the Star Books channel as soon as they are read.

They are a selection of titles that our experts have absolutely adored, the books that really stand out for them!

This competition will run for three months, from April 1st-30th June, so there's plenty of time for you to enter! 

Don't miss out on on a chance to win this amazing selection of books, what a prize this is!
