    I love the reviews themselves, they are of a wide variety and always interesting, the pools, the guest posts and of course, the giveaways. It is one of my favourite blogs when searching for something new to read 😉

    I love the variety of subjects Love Bytes offers: reviews, pools, guest blogs and of course the giveaways. In everything it shows the love and commitment to books and reading.

    Honestly, it’s the giveaways. However, I really enjoy the guest posts as well.

    I’ll be brutally honest. There are only 2 reasons I’m at any book review blog.

    The second is being a (short lived) book reviewer and writing reviews. Due to my current health, I was only able to do that for a couple of short months before I had to call it quits.

    The first is to follow you (stalker, anyone?), whether they’re blog tours or guest posts; and on that journey, I’ve also read many other guest posters and come to find myself enjoying that the most. This applies to Love Bytes Reviews.

    You know as well as I do my opinion on giveaways… *shuffles that to the bottom of the world pile*

    I know many people have been looking to the weather warming up, but I’m in NJ, and this March and April have been down right (STILL) cold and miserable. I think the pollen is even worse this year (and I type this with my eyes barely being able to open due to the pollen irritation… so please forgive any comical typing mistakes). I keep hoping for rain… =/

    Thank you very much for sharing, and to Love Bytes Reviews for hosting these things. As always, may sweet things come to you and hope never fade.

    With <3

    It’s a little bit of everything…the giveaways are great, thorough reviews, intriguing guest posts. I also like the international perspective, which is pretty unique to Love Bytes!

    Thanks for the post. TBH, what I like best are the giveaways (b/c I can’t afford much, but love to read), but the reviews really helped me get a sense of what to go for. Like “Breaker.” I just got that through Reading Alley, and am set to read and review it now. I’ve heard authors say they don’t read reviews, but my being in mgt. development, I’d hope that any kind of feedback is useful. What about you? Do you read reviews and what is it you like to see and maybe get out of a review about one of your books?

    I love the reviews that help me find new authors to read. I also like hearing the insights and writing processes from authors. The interviews give me an insight of their writing process. The giveaways are also a great added benefit.

    I am not the least bit familiar with this blog. So don’t enter me for any giveaways. 😀

    Seriously, you’re my only connection to this place. It’s a thin thread at best.

    However, I would like to say congrats on such a successful blog. It’s been what….3 years or so? It’s a momentous achievement and I sincerely hope it continues to go strong.

    I enjoy the giveaways, of course, but also the author guest posts and the reviews.

    Ah, April the Giraffe. I don’t have facebook, but still I couldn’t avoid her^^;; The publicity is probably good for the zoo and maybe for other zoos, too.

    Initially I came for the reviews, but over time (Haven’t been here for long – maybe half a year?) I’ve discovered my love for the authors’ posts. It’s really interesting to learn about writing struggles, writing progress, other issues concerning writing/publishing and things that don’t have anything to do with being an author at all.
    I also like flashback posts. While I’ve been familiar with Yaoi/BL Manga for more than 15 years now, I’ve only started reading GLBT+ books at the end of 2015. So, discovering older books that sound interesting is always a plus.
    Polls are also great. I’m not a big fan of the weekly polls. If I’m lucky I might have read one of the books by the time the poll comes out. But more often than not I haven’t. Thus, I’m more comfortable with the monthly and yearly polls.

    Since Prism closed this is my ‘go-to’ blog for books. I love reading about new authors, new series and new perspectives. Since so many postings are international in nature, I get outside viewpoints about life, love and politics! Sometimes that’s all that keeps me from tearing out my hair!

    Giveaways a great (I’ve even won.) Author interviews…so interesting. The weekly polls are exciting since I see what other readers value the most. They help me prioritize the books I’m going to read. I especially enjoy studying how the various reviewers look at the same book and then compare my opinion after I finish it.
