Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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

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.

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

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
