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!

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!

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