Hi Ruairidh,

Referencing this type of thing could come in two forms - sometimes the title of the book review might contain the words book review and therefore the reference would look like this

Sage, A. 2013, 'Book Review: Game of Thrones', Review of Books, vol. 1, no. 1, pp.1-10

if there is no mention of a book review in the article title then treat it like this

Sage, A. 2013, 'Game of Thrones', book review, Review of Books, vol.1, no. 1, pp.1-10


Hope this helps!
