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.

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.

Rachel Aygin

I love Lovereading for the wonderful like for like author recommendations and for highlighting new books, it's a great resource for readers!


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

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

Rachel Bridgeman

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

Sally Doel

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!
