Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A book to lap up in one go, giggling all the way. Sophie is such a clever author, she is easy to read, writes well and you really can’t second guess the conclusion. Full of funny incidents yet totally heart-warming too, she is in a class of her own. Very highly recommended.

Comparison: Alexandra Potter, Carmen Reid, Maria Beaumont.
Similar this month: None but try Elizabeth Noble.

If you like Sophie Kinsella you might also like to read books by Chris Manby, Wendy Holden and Lisa Jewell.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

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

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

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

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