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

Suzanne Beney

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

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

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

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 Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.
