Reviews by Year



Have you read.....?

Have you ever thought back and wondered when you read a certain book? Or been asked how long ago you read something? Or even just wondered how long its been since you read that old favourite?

Well, now I have a space where I can keep track of what I read and when I read it.

Over the years I have read many books, and this is my personal space to record the books I have read since I started blogging (listed in reverse chronological order). Not only does this give me a way of keeping track of the books I have read, it also gives anyone reading Page Turners or considering following Page Turners, a sample of what my reading tastes and habits are like.

If you would like to read the review of any of the below books, please see either my Master List of Reviews or my Reviews by Genre Database.

NOTE THE BIG GAP! I stopped recording this information towards the end of my first pregnancy. It just became too hard to keep on top of everything. That is why I haven't recorded anything that I read in 2012, 2013 or 2014.
