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 Elite Series by Jennifer Banash Giveaway

Hi guys! This will be the last giveaway for my blogoversary! I want to thank you guys very much for hanging with me until the very end! Hopefully you guys will stick around after this bash ends. I will go back to my book (and manga!) reviews starting tomorrow. (I may change my mind...)

So join all of the contests (check at the top of the blog) if you haven't already! They will end all on August 31!

Unfortunately, Jennifer Banash is very busy so there is no character post from her. But! She did offer the whole set of her The Elite series to one lucky person!

The blogervarsary giveaways really is a fantastic idea! If I had a blog and the ability to get so many signed books and whatnot, I'd totally do it as well. ;]

I really want to read the last two books because the first was so good. Better than I expected.

deltay said...

The entire set?! Awesome; I'd love to be counted in. Especially since the bookstore here only has the 2nd book, and it seems like this is a series that needs to be read in order ;)

I may or may not have won these already so I'm going to comment anyway in case I don't find out before comments close (but I'll make sure I don't win twice! as unlikely as that is)
