Nothing warms a bookseller's heart more than a passionate call-to-arms for a brilliantly written novel. If you love a book, then we would like nothing better than to hear about it.

Good or bad, it doesn't matter. Loved the genteel diction in the third act? Tell us. Hated the narrative style? We want to know. Have a crush on the villain? Don't keep it a secret. Can't wait for the sequel? Shout about it!

Simply find the book you want to review and select 'Write a review'.
