Please see below for a generic example of a book review published in a scholarly journal:

Lastname of review author, A. (Year, Month day). Title of review [Review of the book Book title, by A. Author & B. Author]. Title of Journal, volume#(issue#), pg#. doi:xxxxxxx

In-text citation: (Lastname of review author, year, p. X)

For more information and examples, please visit "How Do You Reference a Book Review?" from the APA Style Blog or refer to page 208, section 7.06 ("Reviews and peer commentary") in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
