Lovereading is an amazing place to be, the website is wonderful and to me if I'm sad I'll go here and it cheers me up!

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.
