About NZ Booklovers

NZ Booklovers is an online home for books, and for those who enjoy reading them. The site was created by book lovers for book lovers. It is a bookworm’s hub, dedicated to bringing New Zealanders everything they need to know about reading and the world of literature, and to making this information accessible to everyone.

Working alongside publicists, NZ Booklovers showcases both New Zealand and international titles. It provides a platform for sharing articles, author interviews, reviews, and book-related stories, as well as book news, competitions, and reading and writing advice. It also has a shop to buy book-themed gifts & novelties.


How can I become a reviewer or writer for NZ Booklovers?

If you’d like to join our team, you can contact us and find out if we are hiring. We get a lot of applicants and only select the very best, but usually put out a call for applicants every three to six months.

Do your reviewers/writers get paid?

Only in books… which are the best kind of payment really!

But you have advertising on NZ Booklovers, and a shop… where does the money from that go?

The money made from advertising and the shop covers postage and hosting fees. If there is extra money at the end of the year, it goes back into development of the site to make it better for you. Any ad you see or click, and any item you buy from our shop helps keep NZ Booklovers running, and we thank you for your support!

How do competition winners know if they have won?

We email winners directly, so make sure you check your spam folder. Winners have 5 working days to get in touch with address details before the prize is redrawn.

I’d like to run a competition on NZ Booklovers, how do I do that?

How can I get my book reviewed on NZ Booklovers?

We do not guarantee to review all books, but if your book is of interest to a specific reviewer we will request a copy. To submit your book for review, click here.

If my book is reviewed on NZ Booklovers, how can I make sure it is a good review?

Each review is the opinion of the reviewer and while we do not guarantee good reviews, if a reviewer doesn’t like a book they will say so in a constructive way by explaining why they didn’t like the book.

Can I request a particular reviewer to review my book?

Yes, just mention it when submitting your book for review and we will see if that reviewer in particular can fit your book into their schedule if it is of interest to them.
