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.

Thank you Book Muncher for The A-List: Hollywood Royalty and bookmarks!

Ah, finally a nice batch of YA novels! I have just finished As You Wish today so look forward to its review soon! I definitely can't wait to get my hands of Flawless since I've reviewed Pretty Little Liars awhile back. But I think I might have to hold it off because there are a few novels that must be reviewed first. So what did you guys get this week?
