It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
