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.

Trailer Tuesday: One Lonely Degree by C.K. Kelly Martin

Title: One Lonely Degree
Author: C.K. Kelly Martin
Description: Fifteen-year-old Finn Kavanagh feels like an outsider in a world of pack animals. In that way tenth grade isn’t any different than the ninth but sometimes she doesn’t feel like the same person anymore. Ever since what happened at that party last September she has to wonder if she’ll ever be right.

Best friend Audrey does everything she can to help her through the ordeal but now Finn has other problems—like her parents’ marriage unraveling and complicated feelings for Jersy, the new guy in art class. When Audrey and Jersy become a couple Finn’s almost relieved but the feeling doesn’t last. Audrey goes away for the summer leaving Finn alone to deal with her parents’ issues and unresolved emotions about that night in September. Only Finn isn’t actually alone—Jersy’s still in the picture and she still likes him way too much.

I like C.K.'s debut novel, I Know It's Over, so I'm looking forward to her latest release.
