What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

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

Dawn Lynch

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

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

Jen Rainbow

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