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 (Apr 12/10)



Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell


Sliding on the Edge by C. Lee McKenzie
Poison Study by Marie V. Snyder
The Axes of Evil by Michael A. Ventrella
Yaya Han's Dawn Poster

I had to stick the poster in because it is so pretty! Yaya Han is a cosplayer and model who creates gorgeous costumes. You can check her out here.


Music Machine

Title: Say Aah (Cover)
Artist: Original - Trey Songz; Cover - Scott Yoshimoto, CP & Jason Chen
Language: English
My Thoughts: When I saw the song on the site of a radio station I frequently listen to, I decided to search it up. Instead of the original artist, this cover version is one of the first results. I clicked it and got addicted! I love both the cover and original. But I have to say, AZN PRIDE! :D

If you would like to hear the original, click here.


Just a quick shout-out to the winners of The Dark Divine Nailpolish, Kelsey and Ah Yuan: I went to the post office, ready to ship off your prize but then to find out that it is extremely expensive because of the thickness of the package. Being completely broke now, I hope you guys won't mind waiting for a bit (might be awhile @.@)!

Hey, do you live in the GTA? Maybe we could meet up in person, that way it'd save you money on the shipping and whatnot. =D

Diana Dang said...

@Ah Yuan: Actually, I was planning to give the package to my friend if he went to Richmond Hill, he could drop it off. xD I'm in Woodbridge though. Px

Ah Yuan // wingstodust said...


Woah, Woodbridge, eh?, well... I can possibly get to Vaughan Mills mall by transit, if your friend dropping it off doesn't work out. ^^;;;

Diana Dang said...

@Ah Yuan: That's possible Px Are you planning to go soon? I don't know if I am going there anytime soon, though I may go there to apply for work this weekend or next weekend. Still debating if I should work there. xD;

I saw Yaya Han at A-kon last year!

Oh, did you want BURNING AMBITION even though you haven't read HOTTIE?

Diana Dang said...

Lol! Yes I did! xD I should've mentioned that. I thought it was automatically assumed for first two commenter. :)
