Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

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

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Claire Hill

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