About Love And Books


Girls Reading02
LoveandBooks started out as a group of friends commenting on what each one was reading and giving each other recommendations. As more of us moved to geographically distant locations, we found that we wanted to still keep abreast of what we were addicted to and what we would lend each other (oh, those book budgets!). As we told a few more friends, we found that the best way for us all to share ideas and comments was online, and that, dammit, we were pretty hilarious. (read: infamous in our own petty fiefdoms, or homes.)

What it comes down to is that WE LOVE BOOKS. Yes, there are other things that we love, but we are bound (heh, get it?) by our love for the written word, be it electronic or print. Some of us even read the labels on mattresses, for Pete’s sake! And we love to share our opinions. We all have different tastes, as you’ll see by reviewer, but we have some cross-over (usually romance!) and have been known to lure one another to the dark side.

Hey! You got some Sci-Fi in my Romance!”
“Oi! You got some Romance in my Sci-Fi!”
~ actual conversation between two reviewers

You’ll find a lot of BOOKS about LOVE here, ’cause that was what drew us here in the first place , but we are willing to review and give you our honest, totally subjective opinion of a story. That’s what we do. Share. Over-share.

And we’re willing to have a discussion about it too! Feel free to add your two cents, and let the reviewer and the world know what you thought. Just be kind to one another. Remember, we love books too, and can have differing opinions. No trolls, please, or we’ll call the Big Billy Goat Gruff (a.k.a. site admin) and have the offender escorted out of the building.
