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

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

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

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

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.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!
