I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
