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.

Muahaha, aren't you guys glad that I kept track of the entries since the beginning? No wait for you guys!

I just want to do one more quick thank you to you lovely readers, old and new. Stop, Drop, and Read! have been a great success because of you guys and hopefully it will continue to be so in the next year.

Unfortunately, I am entering my last year of high school. My mom is forcing me to stop reviewing books and wanting me to focus in school instead because of university. I'll try to convince her that reviewing books will be good for my application but future reviews will likely be slowed down.

Anyway, onto the winners! (Winners were chosen randomly with a randomizer)

I just had to add that I got my tank top today and was very pleasantly surprised that I also rec'd a very nicely autographed copy of 'The Blood Confession'! I love that the hard-cover's pages look like it has been sitting in a pool of blood! Nice touch!
I may have lost the shirt to my teen daughter (2 actually were close to fighting over it... I'm pretty sure that this is not over yet... lol) but I get to read it first! ;-)
