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.

My Monday Mailbox & Music Machine (Feb 22/10)



Still Sucks to Be Me by Kimberly Pauley


I So Don't Do Spooky by Barrie Summy

Definitely can't wait to get started on Still Sucks to Be Me once I am done with most of my current reads! And I So Don't Do Spooky looks so cute!

Music Machine

Title: I Did It For Love
Artist/Band: BoA
Language: English
My Thoughts: I actually am not a BoA fan. She is a popular Korean artist who has been around for a few years now and have penetrated not only the Korean music industry, but the Japanese's as well. And just last year, she debuted her new English album in America.

Although I don't like her Korean and Japanese songs so much, I am actually a fan of her English album. I Did It For Love is one of the many songs on it that I find extremely catchy and addicting.

Huh, I could have sworn I already commented, but I guess not...

Anyhow, yeah, I was never a big fan of BoA's japanese or korean songs either, so I was surprised that I really enjoyed her English album. I think it's the techno stuff she had going on? Anyhow, my favourites were Did Ya and Energetic in that album. =D Though Did It For Love is not bad either. =D

@Eleni: She is an amazing dancer!

@Yuan: Homg, yeah! Those are my favourites too! xDD I also like Scream, it's creepy if you think about the lyrics. x)

@Everyone else: Thanks!

Nice books, I really want 'I don't do spooky'. It seems everyone is winning books except me, haha. And I remember listening to BoA ages ago, but her songs were a bit strange.
