Real Reviews from Real Passionate Readers

_________________________

Since its inception Lovereading has taken a different approach to book reviews relying uniquely on the selection and review of books by editorial experts, all of whom have had many years of experience working within the book trade. They know what makes a good read whatever the genre and actually read the whole book before telling you what they think - radical we know, but sometimes old fashioned ways are the best.

 

______________________________

In 2012 however, to complement our expert reviews and human-based Like-for-Like comparisons we decided to invite Lovereading members to join the newly created Lovereading Reader Review Panel.It has been a massive success.

We've now attracted over 600 and 100's of books have now been read and reviewed by them. Many of them have their own book blogs and help us to spread the word of mouth on a book they've enjoyed. Panel members put themselves forward to read and review a book that we have advance copies of and their reviews are then loaded onto the site and complement those of our own Lovereading editorial experts. We're even now receiving feedback from visitors to Lovereading that the 'Reader Review Panel' reviews are as valued as those of our own Lovereading book experts!

 

With that in mind we thought it would be very helpful to everyone if we created a category and put all the books that have also been reviewed by some of our Reader Review Panel members, in one easy to find place.

 

Here are a few testimonials from some of our 'Reader Review Panel' members:

 

If I can ever do another review for you, it would be my pleasure. Thanks again Josephine S

 

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to review for Lovereading, it's a great site Lindsay H

 

Thanks for sending me another fantastic book to review! Emily W

 

The book reviewing has been a real treat, thank you for a wonderful experience. Tracey U

 

Just click on any title in this category and you will, in addition to the review from one of Lovereading's editorial experts also see a link through to reviews by members of our Reader Review Panel. Each month our Reader Review Panel members get to choose from around half a dozen titles to put themselves forward to review and all of them ahead of publication.
