Review Policy « Turn the Page

Review Policy

My reviews are based on my own thoughts and feelings – how the story and the characters made me feel, so please keep in mind they are very subjective. All reviews are written by myself, unless stated otherwise. Feel free to link back to any of them, and if you do wish to quote any of the reviews from this site, please credit this blog.

I will only review books I have read myself, and will always post up my honest feelings, good or bad. If I do review a book I didn’t finish this will be clearly stated in the review. I cannot guarantee a positive review, but I will always be honest and respectful, so please be aware that some reviews may contain negative comments.

I mostly read YA fiction. My favourite genre is dystopian, but I also love fantasy, adventure, historical, romance, contemporary, chick lit, mystery, thrillers.

I’m more than happy to receive books for review by authors/publishers – but please bear in mind acceptance of a review copy does not guarantee a review, though I do strive to review the majority of the books that I read. Please take a look at my blog to see what kind of reviews I write.

I love taking part in author interviews, blog tours, giveaways etc so please feel free to contact me about any YA book events.

If you want to chat to me about a reviewing a book, talk about YA in general or even just to recommend something you think I might like, feel free to contact me at I’d love to hear from you.

I’d love to hear how you felt about a book as well so comment away, but please don’t post up personal information (as they will be deleted) and keep them friendly – I will delete any rude, violent or unnecessary comments.

Crinkled Pages

Crinkled Pages is a section of the blog where I post up my favourite book quotes. We all have a page or two in certain books that we revisit from time to time just because the words speak to us in some way. Something beautiful, or moving, or poignant, or inspirational or funny. Whatever the reason. Something special that you keep coming back to.

If you have any Crinkled Pages you’d like to share – let me know and I’ll post them up!

1) Delirium by Lauren Oliver

2) This Is All by Aidan Chambers

Frame that Cover!

Frame that Cover! is a new area of my blog where I shall post up beautiful, inspiring, unique, daring, artistic – you name it! – a selection of some of the simply great YA book covers out there – whether they be old or new. As an illustrator, I have always been drawn to well designed book covers and thought it would be cool to dedicate a section of this blog to just that!

1) His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

2) A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

About « Turn the Page


Welcome to Turn The Page!

I created this blog as a little online bubble where I can chat (probably mostly to myself) about what I’m reading, share which books I love (and the odd ones I don’t), make some rambly reviews and hopefully meet some other book-crazy lovers like myself!

I’m Amy, and despite people insisting on calling me an adult, I find myself constantly drawn back to the YA section in libraries and book shops. So that’s what this blog will mostly be about – my reviews of YA fiction.

Feel free to pop in to say hello, leave a comment, start a discussion or tweet me (you know – once I actually figure out how to use that site), email me at or whatever. I’d love to hear from you.

Happy Reading
