I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

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.

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

Helen Jones

You can trust Lovereading to show unbiased reviews by actual, ordinary readers that help likeminded booklovers choose their next great read.

Linda Hill

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.
