Ian Harvey-brown

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit

Zarina de Ruiter

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.

Daran Bellingham

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

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

Dawn Lynch

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.
