About the Author

Mark Walden

Mark Walden’s first book, H.I.V.E., was selected as a winner in Richard and Judy’s ‘Best Kids’ Books Ever’. Paramount has optioned the film rights, and it was chosen as one of ten titles for Booktrust’s Booked Up scheme, which gives every secondary school student a free book. Mark has followed this success with two further titles in the extraordinarily brilliant H.I.V.E. series and was selected as a WBD author for 2009. He is happily married (as is his wife, he hopes) and is the proud father of Megan.

H.I.V.E: Rogue, published by Bloomsbury in May 2010, is the fifth book in the series. H.I.V.E: Zero Hour published in September 2010, is the sixth and H.I.V.E: After Shock is the seventh in the series.

Earthfall, published by Bloomsbury in June 2012, is a 3-D mega-budget action adventure in book form.

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.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
