Hello! My name is Amy Buckle. I am an English Literature and Language graduate of the University of Reading. I have always been an avid reader and there’s nothing I like more than curling up in bed with a cup of tea and a good book.
Amy’s Bookshelf is a way for me to express my opinions about the novels I read; ranging from old classics to contemporary works of fiction, I hope there’s a review on here for everyone. I also write posts about book related topics as well, so head to my Bookish Posts page to have a read of those.
All my reviews are given a rating, with a maximum of five stars, and each post is only about 500 words in length (so short and sweet!) I never include spoilers in my reviews so no plots will be ruined for anyone who hasn’t read them yet.
If you would like to contact me about reviewing a book then please head to my Contact Me page where you can find my details. I would advise that you read my Review Policy before contacting me to make sure you know what I will and will not review.
I hope you enjoy!
