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.

I am back!

Hopefully, haha! So my first year of university has officially ended (no summer school for me, no siree!) and now I have four months of vacation. :D My plan is definitely to update Stop, Drop, and Read! more often. Even though I haven't done My Monday Mailbox & Music Machine (The Story Siren's In My Mailbox inspired weekly feature) since like August, I did receive quite a few books to review despite the fact I held off requesting any. I will restart that feature this upcoming Monday with the latest books I have received this past couple of weeks.

In terms of my reading so far, you can see what I have been trying to get through on the left sidebar (has been the same 3 books for the last 2 months). I think I will have to re-read Awakened for sure. The review copy I received awhile back was actually paper-bounded so the ARC is huge. I was unable to take it with me to places and I sometimes forgot to read it. So I need to re-read it in order to give a clear and concise review. (I'm so sorry Ednah for the extreme delay! Will let you know once I have the review up!)

I actually held off reading Flowers in the Attic because I was really disliking the grandmother. I know the series is very popular, even till this day. However, it is a really dark story and I don't know how far I will be able to go. If anyone has read this novel or the series in general, what is your take on it?

Since I have been out of the YA loop for over 10 months, anything you guys want to update me on? :)

Upcoming review: Saving June by Hannah Harrington

P.S. Who is watching the Royal Wedding tomorrow?
