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.

Congrats on the win. I hope you enjoy your read. Ohhh an Anime convention...wow that must be alot of fun. Is it anything like comic-con?

Thanks everyone! I read it long before but never got the review up for it. It's a great book! Will going to re-read it to refresh my memory before I do the review. =)

@Ravenous: I've only been to combined convention where it had comics too but yea, I'm sure both anime cons and comic cons are similar!
