Hi!  I hope that you are enjoying this site.  I have been reading, it seems, since the day I breathed air.  It must, of course, have been at least a few years later! I love to read and I hope that the comments made on this blog will encourage you to read and enjoy reading.

If you have any comments about a book or post there is a comments box at the bottom of each post or you can always contact me via the contact page, I’d love to hear from you.


I am currently not accepting any further books for review.

I do receive ARC books for review and will publish them on this blog. If you would like me to review a book please contact me via the contact page.  Do not include the book on your initial contact.

From 2019: I have reviewed a lot of ARC books and still have quite a few coming up which will take me well beyond the end of this year. They have come from publishers, direct or via events; from NetGalley and from Blog Tour organisers. I have very much enjoyed doing this. So a big ‘thank you’ to them all for those requests and for all those books. That said I am currently not accepting any further books, please do not feel offended it is simply that I do not have the capacity to do them.


Review Policy

I am currently not accepting any further review requests.

Thank you for considering LoveBooksReadBooks for reviewing your work.  If you are interested in a book being reviewed on my blog, whether you are an author or publisher. then please read the following review policy before contacting me below:

I accept physical books and eBooks for review consideration. When contacting me please provide as much information about the book as possible, including links to book websites, author website and where possible example chapters. If you have a date in mind for the review to be up, please let me know, that way I can give you a better idea of if I am available to review the book in time. I may also accept guest posts and, very occasionally, giveaways in relation to a book.

Sending books for review consideration does not guarantee a review will be posted. If and when the review goes live I will email you a link, and tweet when the time allows me to. If I find I am unable to review your book I will contact you.

Blogging is a hobby so please be patient in waiting for a reply from me. However if you have not had a reply within 72 hours then unfortunately your book isn’t for me.

My preferred genre is crime fiction but, if the book sounds interesting, then I may review other genres. However, I do not accept erotica or horror.

If you are sending me information for any post, to avoid copyright issues, please ensure you hold the copyright to ALL images supplied or that they are free to access.

Please be aware that I am a UK blogger, and take into account the time difference when sending information for review.


Privacy Policy

Occasionally LoveBooksReadBooks will hold giveaways or competitions hosted by myself, on behalf of authors or from publishers. All information collected as entries in these competitions/giveaways will not be used, sold or passed on to anyone unless clearly stated, for example mailing address sent to publisher for a book they are giving as a prize.

Giveaways are open for people aged 18 and over only.

All information collected will only be used for the giveaway and will be deleted once over.

To ensure your own safety please do not leave personal information in any comments section such as email address or mailing address.



Giveaway Policy

Before entering into any of my giveaways please read the terms and conditions.  This states whether the giveaway is international or not and how long it runs for.

All giveaways are for one entry per person. Multiple entries will be deleted and the person will be disqualified from entering the giveaway.

Giveaway accounts will also be disqualified and the entry from that person will be deleted. If your feed is full of giveaway entries when I check the entries then you will be disqualified from that and future giveaways.

You must use a valid email that you check regularly.  I am not responsible for chasing you and finding alternative emails or other methods to contact you.

All winners will have 48 hours to reply to my initial email or a new name will be chosen.

Once the prize has been sent off or information passed along to the appropriate person (publishers, authors) I will not be held responsible for what happens to it.
