I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

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

Dawn Lynch

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

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.
