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 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!

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!

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 as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

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
