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 Borrowed

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

The Bought


The Received


Once again, only one new book borrowed. Since everyone is hyped about the last novel of the Princess Diaries that was just released, I decided to see how good it really is. Though I really dislike that it is diary format, I'll try to read through. My goal is to try and complete the series. =)

It is a good series, but the quality of each book varies. I still need to read the tenth.

I agree, the quality definitely varies. I loved 1-3 and 9-10, 8 was alright, but 4-7 were kind of forgettable. They're all really funny, though, and I wouldn't give them away for anything.

Yea, I figured since there is so many in the series, a couple of them wouldn't be so great. Hopefully I can make through this challenge.

Also - the contest shipping is international.

Number 9 is definitely a high.

wdebo said...

Yes that is true 9 makes me REALLY wanna read the tenth!!

@Liv: Ooh, alrightie then! =)

Hm, so far I'm not impressed with Princess Diaries... Hopefully it gets better later on like it usually does.
