Blogger Promo Tour Stop 2: Caught Read Handed


Next stop in the The Book Bratz’s Blogger Promo Tour is Caught Read Handed!

I absolutely love this blog- and I’m not just saying that because I know Stefani will be reading this post. Caught Read Handed is a mixture of book reviews and book to movie adaptations news! To be honest I usually skim blog posts, especially long ones, but Stefani’s posts are so interesting that I actually take my time to read them. Not only are her posts amazing but her blog is absolutely gorgeous! I’m terrible at designing themes so I envy how beautiful her blog is.

Now onto the person behind the blog. Stefani is the sweetest person ever. I’ve only spoken with her a couple of times on twitter, but she’s been nothing but nice and patient with me (especially since I emailed her last minute for this post- thanks Stefani!) Enough with my blabbing, here’s Stef:

Hi there! My name is Stefani, and I am the blogger over at Caught Read Handed. I am a huge bibliophile (duh), but I am in love with all things culture: books, music, movies, television, art. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s degree in Publishing Studies. I currently work in a local library and have a fun online job for a publisher called Month9Books. I love to travel (I’ve been to about ¾ of the States and five countries – I lived in Scotland for a year while I got my Master’s degree). If I’m not working or reading, you can probably find me at a concert or in a movie theater. I absolutely love the blogging community and talking to people about books, so stop by my blog or tweet me (@StefaniSloma) and let’s chat!

Stefani was nice enough to do The Book Cake Tag which I found on YouTube! In this tag you must choose a book that, in your opinion, qualifies as an ingredient in a cake. It was really cool seeing what Stefani chose for each ingredient.

1) Flour – A book that was a little bit slow to start off but that really picked up as it went along.
I can’t really think of a book for this. I’m going to go with Necroscope by Brian Lumley. I thought it was super slow for about the first 150 pages (I kept reading because I’d made a deal with my dad to read the book), and it did pick up in the last 150 pages or so. It was a weird one for me though, a bit of a rollercoaster.

2) Margarine – A book that had a really rich and great plot.
S. by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst – metafiction at its best. This book pretty much sums up why I want to work in publishing. It’s a work of art.

3) Eggs – A book that you thought was going to be bad but actually turned out quite enjoyable.
John Dies at the End by David Wong – I didn’t necessarily think it was going to be bad; I just didn’t think it’d be my type of book. I loved it.

4) Sugar – A sugary/sweet book.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – the perfect sugary read. It’s sweet, funny, and completely adorable. This book (and its sequel Lola and the Boy Next Door) are completely charming, and I cannot wait for Isla and the Happily Ever After.

5) Icing – A book that covered every single element that you enjoy about a book (funny moments, action moments, sad moments, etc.).
The Humans by Matt Haig – I recommend this book to every single person I can. It makes you appreciate being alive, being human. Read it. 🙂

6) Sprinkles – A book series that you can kind of turn to for a little pick me up when you’re feeling down.
The Harry Potter series – Do I really need to explain this one?

7) The cherry on top – Your favorite book this year so far.
I can’t pick just one, so here are the top three: The Black Hour by Lori Rader-Day, The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, and It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. I liked each of them for different reasons, but I loved every one.

Thanks for visiting my blog Stefani. Make sure you check out her blog and come back next Sunday to see who’s next on this tour!
