Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

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

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.
