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.

Trailer Tuesday: Impossible by Nancy Werlin

Title: Impossible
Author: Nancy Werlin
Description: Lucy Scarborough is seventeen when she discovers that the women of her family have been cursed through the generations, forced to attempt three seemingly impossible tasks or to fall into madness upon their child’s birth. How can Lucy succeed when all of her ancestors have tried and failed? But Lucy is the first girl who won’t be alone as she tackles the list. She has her fiercely protective foster parents beside her. And she has Zach, whose strength amazes her more each day. Do they have enough love and resolve to overcome an age-old evil?

The concept is interesting but for some reason, I don't really think it is my type of book. For those who have read it, your opinions?

Haven't read this one yet, but I've heard so many wonderful things about's sitting in my TBR pile as I write. :)

Awesome. Amazing. Book. :)

The ending was such a page turner.

The beginning...was pretty blah..but after around the mid term got so addictive.

Hope you can read it! It's a great book...if you get past the beginning of course.

Ooh, I hadn't seen this trailer before, which I really like, but I did read the book. I enjoyed it very much, but it's not my favorite Werlin title. Definitely worth a read.

If you're interested, the trailer for my debut in March is here:

Nice blog!

It was okay.
It seemed kind of odd, I enjoyed reading it, but probably wouldn't read it again
