A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

Lovereading is a wonderful way to expand my literary horizons, discover inspiring authors & get the chance to read new novels first. #loveit

Zarina de Ruiter

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.
