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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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 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

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