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 Dark Divine Nailpolishes

Such an awesome week! xD I was planning to buy A Match Made in High School but I got lucky and won it instead! It's also signed! :D

Which book do you want to see the review for most out of the above?


Music Machine

Title: Heartbeat
Artist/Band: 2PM
Language: Korean
My Thoughts: Heartbeat is a song you have to listen to a couple of times over before it starts getting addicting (in my experience).

2PM is one of my top favourite bands! When they debuted, I kept listening to them over and over (like most songs I get attached to easily). I am dying for another MV by them!


Great international contest over at Bloody Bookaholic! With 7 winners too! Click here to enter ASAP! I am also giving away 2 Dark Divine Nailpolishes as well as a copy of Explorer X-Alpha! Click above on blog!


Quick thank you to Miriam at Backchat Girl Reviews! for the Beautiful Blogger Award and Amanda from Daydreams and Wanderings who is also giving me the same award as well as One Lovely Blog Award!

Not Suitable For Family viewing looks good. I'd never heard of it before but it's now on my list. :p I really look forward to reading your review for this one because I haven't seen it anywhere else.

Before I Fall is amazing and I hope you enjoy it. It's a great story.

Happy reading Diana! :D
