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.

Queen Titania from the Morgan Rawlinson Series

I absolutely LOVELOVELOVE (x infinity) the Morgan Rawlinson series by Maryrose Wood!!! I am absolutely dying for the third novel! I think it's the only novel that I will go out and buy on the spot! (As an old follower, you will know that I am a little cheap and broke...) So today I present to you Queen Titania who plays quite a bit of a role in Morgan's life!


To: You Silly Humans
From: Me! The Queen of the Faeries, naturally!

How perfectly delicious! Imagine: me, Queen Titania, a guest blogger at Stop, Drop, and Read! I am going to need a long, luxurious spa vacation just to recover from the thrill. Bring on the hot stone massage, boys!

See, this is a perfect example of why I am so sick of being Queen of the Faeries. Being human is way more fun! The status and influence I enjoy being the supreme ruler of all things magical is
nothing compared to the attention you humans get by blogging! Yes, I have unimaginable powers. But I don’t get comments, do I? I don’t get to run book giveaways, do I? Honestly, sometimes being immortal is just so limiting.

The truth hurts, but I can’t just click the heels of my magic Manolos and make it go away. I’m a rockin’ faery queen and Diana Dang’s a lowly human teen, but while I’m stuck discussing cinema with a bunch of trolls, Diana can just sit at her computer and tell the whole wired
universe what she thinks of the new Harry Potter movie! And while we’re on the subject, is it me, or does that adorable Ginny Weasley look like she’s going to grow up to be Maureen Johnson? See for yourself!

A charming person, that Maureen, especially for a mortal. She keeps asking me for book ideas, but I just say no! I’m too busy feeding plots to the writers of “The Office.”

Speaking of work, mine is never done — “uneasy lies the updo that wears the crown,” as I once told my old pal Bill Shakespeare. Must run, darlings; I have a realm to rule, after all.

Or do I? It’s a tempting notion, really…I mean, what would happen if I ditched the faery realm once and for all and devoted myself to having fun fun fun, human style? That wouldn’t be the end of the world, now, would it?

Love from the royal me,

Queen T.


Actually, I haven't gotten the chance to watch Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince yet! I honestly got lost after the third movie... But let's go to the more important things, shall we?

Three of you lovely readers can win the second novel in the Morgan Rawlinson series! If you haven't read the first, Why I Let My Hair Grow Out, honestly, get to it before you move onto the second! It is absolutely HILARIOUS!
I no lie!

When Queen Titania decides that the human realm is the only place to be, Morgan Rawlinson has to take charge in a big, big way—or reality will never be the same. WHAT I WORE TO SAVE THE WORLD will be in stores December 1st. For more info, visit

Awesome guest post! I love it when authors write from the character's POV. I met the author briefly in NYC at BEA, ever since I've wanted to read one of her books.
