Lovereading view...

From mooning teenager to mum - a moving story of the high price of adolescent innocence. Emily's first-person story tells of how she loves being a member of the Kissing Club, its signifying ring shows that she's not going to have sex until she gets married. But then Emily gets pregnant and that wasn't what she was expecting....


Kissing Club by Julia Clarke

When I was 14 I joined the Kissing Club. I became a professional virgin and also gave up telling lies. The first bit was pretty easy - the second was pretty hard...Emily loves being part of the Kissing Club. She loves the feeling of being special, and she loves the ruby ring her parents bought her when she joined. It's a symbol that means everyone knows she's made a promise not to have sex until she gets married. So how on earth has she ended up pregnant?

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

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

Susan Walsh

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

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

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

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

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

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.
