About Compulsive Reader

Welcome fellow reader!  

Compulsive Reader has been publishing high quality, magazine style reviews since 2001 and we’ve grown to a worldwide community of more than 10,000.  

The site is edited by Magdalena Ball, and features in-depth, informative and witty reviews on a wide range of books, both newly released and classic, music and film, as well as author interviews.  We’ve got a regular team of reviewers with extensive and eclectic tastes, deep insight into literary and contemporary culture trends, and exceptional writing skills.  We also feature a regular, free newsletter, many giveaways including our monthly headline book, polls, and literary news.  

There’s also a radio show, Compulsive Reader Talks, where we offer live interviews and podcasts.  This is the hub of a thriving and exciting online community of book lovers and we’re so pleased you could join us.
