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

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!

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

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.
