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!

A selection of a few of my favourite books (in no particular order), some of which I have reviewed on this blog:

  1. A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara
  2. Birdsong – Sebastian Faulks
  3. The Time Keeper – Mitch Albom
  4. The Help – Kathryn Stockett
  5. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – Jonathan Safran Foer
  6. Instructions for a Heatwave – Maggie O’Farrell

    Hey Amy, thanks for visiting my blog. Thought I would pop back and say HI.
    You've got a good variety of books on your list, some I adore too and some I've never read. I'm now following your blog 🙂

    Hi! Just popping by to say while I haven’t read many of the books you’ve recently reviewed, I ADORE your blog design and the reviews I’ve read!
    Hope you have a lovely day! 🙂
