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.

Alyzon Whitestarr by Isobelle Carmody

I have been telling myself to get started with Melissa Walker's novels for months. Although I follow her through her blog for quite awhile now, I have never read any of her books. So I decided to request all of the Violet series and got the first one today. I really want to read Lovestruck Summer though. Oh! And she just got married! Go over to her blog and give her your congratulations!

I wonder if Alyzon Whitestarr by Isobelle Carmody is good.

I haven't read the Violet series, but I've heard good things about it! I've also seen Alyzon Whitestarr, and the cover is really cool.

Happy reading!

Did you like the Shopoholic series? I was wondering if I should pick up the first one to read.
