Synopsis

Dreadful Fates by Tracey Turner

From grisly murders to unusual funerals, Dreadful Fates provides a gruesome journey through history to present-day instances of figures who have had the misfortune of a dreadful or unusual end. Readers can find out about everything from Aeschylus, the ancient Greek who died when a tortoise fell on his head, and the man who tripped over his own beard, to a countless number who met their end through laughing too much!

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

Daisy Pennock – age 15

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

Lorraine Woods

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

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

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

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.
