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.

The Bought

Crown vol. 1 by Shinji Wada and You Higuri

The Received

Invisible Touch by Kelly Parra
Never Bite a Boy on the First Date by Tamara Summers

It's been awhile since I bought anything huh? I just had a random urge last Sunday to get a manga since I haven't bought any for a long time. Crown is actually the first manga I bought solely because of a review (by MangaBlog) and it's pretty cool. I'll be working on the review of it soon.

Strange, and for some reason the picture I took of Kelly's autograph is to the side. Huh, I'm too lazy to change that now!

I got tagged by Diane from The Book Resort to list 5 book related items on my desk & 5 non book related items. Hm, should I pick the desk in my room or the one I'm at (computer)? Okay, computer desk then!
