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.

Okay, my reviews may be slowed down for the next couple of weeks. Exams are coming up and I'm dying because I barely started studying. I will try to squeeze some more reading in between the time and hopefully keep myself tamed away from the computer. You can see the books I'm in the middle of on the sidebar under the Goodreads widget.

Thank you Diane for the Literacy Blogger Award over at The Book Resort! If I go back and count all the awards I have received, at least 9/10 are from you. Haha, thank you for being an awesome follower! =)

Contest Alert: Tomorrow is the last day to enter to win 1 of 5 copies of Hollywood Car Wash by Lori Culwell. Click here to enter before it's too late! I will announce winners on Wednesday (if I can)!

Edit: I'm now on Twitter! Feel free to add me!
