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.

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 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.
