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.

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!

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

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 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.
