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

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

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!
