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.

Recommend Me Novels: College-age protagonist

Reading about teens for so long, I'd like to break away a little and try something different. Being in university now, I would love to read a novel with a protagonist who is in college/university or is at least around that age. However, there is not exactly a genre for books with characters in that age range but rather is mixed in with the adult novels in general.

So if you know any novels with the main character who is 18 (but out of high school!) and maybe up to 22 years old, please let me know!

Secret Society Girl and sequels, by Diana Peterfreund. I wrote about the first one here. Wicked fun!

The Ivy by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur is the only one I can think of off the top of my head. It's a lot of fun!

I was just about to write a post asking this! Priceless by Nicole Richie is the book that started me thinking about it.

There's also Peeps by Scott Westerfeld.

I was coming to suggest Secret Society Girl by Diana Peterfreund, too! It's a really fun series.

Charles de Lint tends to use college age characters in many of his full-length novels and the short story collections that take place in Newford. If you're not familiar with the author, he writes "urban fantasy" that occasionally borders on metafiction. He's got good writing, a sense of humor, and... if you let them, his stories can have a lot of meaning buried in them.
