Why Choose LoveReading?

  • LoveReading is the original and UK’s biggest and best known book recommendation brand comprising of LoveReading.co.uk, LoveReading4Kids.co.uk and LoveReading4Schools.co.uk
  • Since 2005 we have been the trusted advisor of readers looking for credible recommendations and book reviews.
  • Our reliable teams of Expert Reviewers, Ambassadors and Consumer Review Panel provide honest and accessible reviews to help promote books.
  • Publishers love us, we review books for every main UK publisher including Harper Collins, HQ, Penguin, Puffin, Bloomsbury, Macmillan, Walker Books, Bonnier, Zaffre, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, Orion, Oxford University Press and many more.
  • Most titles (and definitely every promoted and selected title) on our websites has been read, reviewed and loved by our expert panel. That’s what we do. This review is then used to spread the word. If you get us the proof early enough, these quotes can be used on the book jacket, like hundreds of others have done in the past.
  • Due to popular demand we are now offering a service enabling authors to get much-needed feedback on their books. Our panel of Ambassadors are ready and waiting to review your book.
  • Books that are well reviewed by our Ambassadors will gain the opportunity to be featured on the main LoveReading site.
  • We do not guarantee positive reviews, unfavourable reviews can be taken as valuable feedback for improvements and ultimately will not be published on our site. This is why our readers trust us and why our endorsement is so meaningful.
  • Our first stage review package is just £120 making it accessible for authors to receive valuable feedback on their book.

FAQ

A. Our Ambassadors are hand-picked from thousands and include book bloggers, librarians, authors, professional reviewers, media execs and more

A. We have over 3,000 consumer reviewers who are a mixture of avid book readers and reviewers. We send out a monthly newsletter which will include your book, offering it for review. The number of reviews from this varies, depending on the appetite for your book. We do not guarantee reviews from our consumers but it will be seen by a lot of reviewers who will have the chance to review it.

A. To post the review on Amazon, please contact an Amazon representative directly. Whilst not guaranteed, most of our reviewers will be active on main book sites and with your permission can share these on a case by case basis.

A. NO. LoveReading is a book recommendation site so we will not list any negative reviews and no one would see it without your permission.

A. Should your Ambassador review be positive, we will publish your book on LoveReading.co.uk and/or LoveReading4kids.co.uk and we will add it to our “Indie Book Of The Year” shortlist. We will also give you our coveted “Recommended By LoveReading” graphic to use as you see fit. If your book is exceptional we may contact you with more options.

A. YES. Our intention is to give honest feedback from a trusted LoveReading Ambassador, and to also provide wide book exposure to mainstream readers and to reward books people love with added exposure. We have worked hard to provide the best value offering on the market.

A. You are paying for a service. You are paying for an honest review. You are also paying for the opportunity to gain exposure to thousands of other reviewers who may want to read your book. And, you are paying for the chance to feature on the leading UK book recommendation site should your book be positively received. We are presenting this opportunity as an author care and promotion package and have priced it to be accessible to all.

A. No. If you enter one into our form, it will automatically find your book there but if you do not yet have one, simply enter “no ISBN” or “000” into the ISBN part of the form and submit it to us.

A. Favourably. Although there is no like-for-like service to what we offer in the UK, there are dozens of sites who charge 2-5 times our price just for a review. Our package delivers a review, the potential to get more reviews from avid readers and the possibility of added exposure on our trusted network of high traffic sites.

A. We have reviewed top titles for over 15 years from every leading publisher. We are also the top ranked site in the UK for “Book Reviews.” We have a vast following and newsletter audience of over 500,000 as well as very busy sites with 100s of thousands of visitors a month.

A. Our team will evaluate your book and select a reviewer who likes to read your type of book and who has an interest in your area or genre

A. We prefer sending digital copies online but can also accept hard copies in most cases if you send us an email to help@lovewriting.co.uk

A. We review every book and we do not guarantee positive reviews. If we did, it would not help you or our readers in the long run. Books with negative reviews from our Ambassador may still get good reviews from our consumer review panel and vice versa. No reviews will be published without your permission and good reviews can catch they eye of a literary agent or book scout.

A. We accept any type of book, from self-help to religious books to fiction. We will match you up with the most appropriate reviewer for your book dependent on the genre and target audience.

A. Your Ambassador review is guaranteed within 4 weeks for our expedited package and 8 weeks for our standard package. Reviewers from our consumer panel are sent within a monthly newsletter so vary but we normally ask our consumer reviewers to review books within 4 weeks of receiving them.

A. We are looking to open this service soon, please email help@lovewriting.co.uk to be added to our waiting list.
