Lovereading view...

Games galore! This time it is Great Insect Games. Ambrose is determined to win a shiny gold medal. He has practiced a lot but will he ever be able to beat the others? The first event is the Long Jump. Ambrose tries but the grasshopper can jump a lot further than anyone else. Ambrose isn't any more successful in the running race or the bug eating race. But, at last, when all hope is fading, Ambrose finds he can be best of all!

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

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


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

Susan Walsh

Lovereading is a world of books. It has everything you need from new to old and much loved classic books. It even give you recommendations!

Kate Thurston

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

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

Maggie Crane

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.
