Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take some time before I can review it. I am now looking to review adult fiction and self-help books instead of young adult fiction because I have grown out of it. If you are to request a review for either adult fiction or self-help, I will more likely to give it a shot.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, I may post a review. Thank you for understanding.

The Bought


The Received


I wasn't planning to go to the library yesterday. Sadly, someone requested three books that was due that day before I was able to renew it. So! I picked up my requested mangas and a couple of new how-to-draw-manga artbooks! (I'm sure I won't bother trying to practice from them...) I still have several mangas from nearly a month before that I still was unable to get around to. Unfortunately, I have a new manga series that I am hooked to online! I am frustrated at the fact that it has 24 volumes! (Currently on vol. 15 since I started last night). Lol, you can see that I am reading it on the computer screen! Which series? You'll have to wait to find out. ;)
