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.

Answer: unfortunately, I do not forgive easily. If someone is mean to me or wrongs me in some way, I find it extremely hard to just forget it and go on like nothing happened.

+1--It depends. If somebody just annoys me, then whatever, I don't really care too badly. If they really are hurtful, though, I won't forgive them easily.
+3: Old follower :)
+2: Is it plus two if you've already been on it??
+3: My best friend happens to be a guy. We used to date, and for a time, it looked like we would again. Then I found out he had a girl friend...and had for three months. We talked every night on the phone, but he neglected to mention that. It took me a long time to forgive him for that; I think that forgiveness, in cases like that, still can't replace the trust you lose.
Hmm, that was kind of bungled. I hope it made sense, lol.

+1 Depends on the deed. A simple sentence can tick me off for long time. At the same time, I might not be angry at all if you completely forgot to pick me up after school. Now, if I were stuck at the school for the entire night... well, it would take a while before I let that go.

3+ my story.
My family was doing this thing at our house and we had familys over to do it and one of the family had a son that was about my age and he and I got into a fight and we didn't see each other for long time( about 6 year)and all of this time, I couldn't forgive him at all but I had to work with HIM on a photography job and he was nicer now and he forgotten all about the fight so I just forgive him and we became friends again. :D So yes, forgiving is VERY important, you can miss
out on all of thing by not forgiving like i did.:P

I do forgive easily but it took years of learning. It is so much easier to forgive and healthier too.

A story of forgiveness.
I remember being very angry at someone for hurting me and I was angry for years. I decided to forgive in my heart and it felt like I let go of 50 pounds.
