Reviews

Takes a well worn premise and reinvigorates it, executing it with imagination and flair. A real delight. Peters Gazette

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.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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