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

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.

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.
