For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

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

Judith Sharp

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