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


They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

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.
