As it is world book day today I thought I would join in the celebrations by taking a look back at five of my favourite book reviews over the past year. Remember that Lilo Loves reading so you can expect lots more book reviews to come, I have been a real bookworm over the past few months. Enjoy!

Book Review: One Day by David Nicholls
