Reviews

'Strauss is a deft narrator and expert inquisitor. He cuts out the flowery descriptors and gumpf that comes with interviewing a star...and strips it back to the revealing nitty-gritty, absurd and amusing exchanges we all wish we could be privy to. ... The perfect book to dip into.' - Time Out

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

Sarah Davis

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

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.

Tessa Olson

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 gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
