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.

Harry Potter Giveaway + David Inside Out Winners!

I did promise a new giveaway right? Now ain't I so nice?? Haha, read below for details!

Title: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Author: J.K. Rowling
Description: It all comes down to this - a final faceoff between good and evil. You plan to pull out all the stops, but every time you solve one mystery, three more evolve. Do you stay the course you started, despite your lack of progress? Do you detour and follow a new lead that may not help? Do you listen to your instincts, or your friends?
Lord Voldemort is preparing for battle and so must Harry. With Ron and Hermione at his side, he's trying to hunt down Voldemort's Horcruxes, escape danger at every turn, and find a way to defeat evil once and for all. How does it all end? Find out in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

With Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince coming out this summer, why not just fast-forward to find out what happens in the end already? Well, I have a treat for you! I'm giving away 5 copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! Not only that but each winner gets a cute 10 years anniversary pin like I did here!
