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


After three sad weeks, I still haven't received anything in the mail (nor willing to buy anything because I am expecting a few review books to come by). So, to compensate I borrowed quite a bit. Or more like just grabbed whatever was new to me on the shelf if I didn't already request it. You guys might be staring at me because of the third batch there. Lol, those textbooks are purely for school use. Except for The Acne Cure one. Now that one I decided to grab for leisure reading... Yes, I'm so weird!

Right now, I'm unsure of what I should review later. Most of the time when I review mangas, I review whatever I have read up to instead of volume by volume. (I find that I might spoil some things and I don't want to do that). I think I may review the Nancy Drew graphic novels one by one.

In the meantime, I'm reading Train to Trieste so hopefully I will get a review of it sometime this week. Or go start reading to Shadowed Summers instead. We'll see.

Oh, and Happy Belated Valentine's Day! Did anyone do anything special yesterday? =) I sat home, bored online. Yes, there is so much excitement in my life.

It has such a pretty cover! I couldn't resist! Especially since I'm such a Japan-a-holic :3
