Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

Angela Rhodes

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

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

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

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