The Lovereading4Kids comment

A chilling horror story that really sets the spine tingling. Four friends unlock the door of the abandoned Fell Scar house. Inside they find a secret room; they read the mildewed books and free the eyeless dolls from a locked box. What they don’t know is exactly what horror have they unleashed…


Bad Blood by Rhiannon Lassiter

A nail-biting horror story.

When Katherine, Catriona, John and Roley are forced to go on holiday to Fell Sear House, they know things will be grim. But none of them has an inkling of just how hellish it will be.

In this chilling thriller, winning really is a matter of life or death.


I thoroughly enjoyed it (Bad Blood)...She writes superbly and maps modern family with pinpoint accuracy but her real strength lies in creating an atmosphere of weird creepiness within the everyday, this allows her to slowly ratchet the tension to screaming pitch. This book contains moments of real terror. Respect! ...I thought it was superb. Celia Rees

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

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

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.
