Notice for Review Requests

I have been receiving some review requests over the past few months. However, I have been quite busy with my personal and school life to continue actively reviewing novels. I do read every request that has been sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all. I have accumulated a pile I have yet to go through and I try to work with what I have instead rather than taking on more.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take a couple of months before I get around to it.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. Once in awhile when I have time, a new review will go up.

Taking Audiobooks Review Requests/Recommendations!

Hello, hello! Long time no talk! So I want to do a quick update. Although I don't have the time to read like I once used to, I have plenty of time to listen to audio (I work part-time at a car assembly plant). I have about 16 hours of listening time a week. I only listen to a couple of podcasts (Runaway Thoughts and Dada Life) with so many songs I could just replay over and over on my iPod. Since my review blog has been dull for the past couple of years, I am willing to jumpstart by blog again with audiobook reviews. I am really new to the audiobook side of things so I would need some navigation.

I looked into Audible, however it seems like I have to input my credit card number, which is something I don't want to do. If anyone can recommend a great audiobook site where I can download my novels for free, let me know!

I am unsure how popular audiobooks are in the YA realm. Therefore, I will give flexibility with the genres of audiobooks I will take on (mystery, horror, etc). So yes, feel free to shoot me any audiobook requests (or recommendations!) starting now! :)

I would check and see if your library has eaudiobooks - mine does and it's really helpful! I recommend any book narrated by Katherine Kellgren. She narrates the Bloody Jack books by L.A. Meyer as well as Maryrose Wood's Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place along with many others.

Thanks Kristen! I will see if I have the time to drop by the library for eaudiobooks. I never thought the library would carry any lol.

Try your library, as said before. Also, Audible has some free audiobooks even though you have to a have a credit card on file. Downpour has one free audiobook a month.

I recommend Chris Colfer's books - they aren't my favorite books, but he's great at voices.
