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.

Watching on Wednesday: Guardians of the Galaxy

Movie: Guardians of the Galaxy
Release Year: 2014
My Rating: 5/5

A movie review? Oh my, I haven't done this in ages! Alas, I thought I quickly share my thoughts on this movie and give this blog a little life.

About a month ago, I thought I got into a free prescreening of Guardians of the Galaxy. Silly me, it turned out to be a 17 minute sneak peek to generate hype. So you can understand my shock and confusion when it stopped so suddenly! However, the marketing team did well and I really wanted to watch the full movie afterwards. After hearing much rave from friends and the internet, I finally got to watch it!

Peter Quill (a.k.a. Star-Lord) was kidnapped from Earth by aliens as a young kid. He is now an outlaw in space many years later. He retrieves an orb for a mission, but has no idea that powerful people were after it. Next thing he knows, he is stuck with a group of bandits and all fighting to survive. Like any other Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy did not disappoint. It has that humour that keeps the audience laughing, but it does not to deter from the actual movie. You will have your favourite moments and favourite characters. I am very eager for the second movie, which should be coming out in 2017.

I am now tempted to go buy a Guardians of the Galaxy related t-shirt, just to show off my fandom!

Book Sale for Toronto/GTA! Almost 200 Books for Sale!

Hello lovely people! I decided to go through 7 hours of sorting my book collection and listing a bunch I want to sell. I will be travelling this upcoming winter and am in need of funds! I would like to do meetups, personally close to my home if possible since shipping is expensive and a bit of a hassle.

The Rules:

- Purchases under $30 will only be meeting near Hwy 7 and Weston Rd (Vaughan) or Torbram and Queen St. E (Brampton). Toronto only according to what works with my schedule.
- Purchases over $30, I will be more flexible to meet in Toronto
- I do not do meets in other areas like Mississauga, Richmond Hill, etc. 
- If you buy 4 or more books, you can get a free ARC or any book $5 and under

If anyone really wants to buy but is elsewhere, let me know and I might consider shipping it to you. Though you will have to pay for shipping as well.

Happy shopping!
