It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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 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.
