It's Almost Summer YA Contemporary Giveaway

The school year is FINALLY coming to an end (or, at least it is here), and while I still have two tests and a project due in the next few weeks I've been to a few book signings in the past month or so and have bought and had an extra copy signed here and there, leaving me with a rather large stack of signed books to give away.  From those extra copies I've put together a small bundle of YA contemporary novels that I think will be perfect to read over the summer.  But I'm sure you're wondering what books you can actually win, so let me show you.

The Way Back to You by Michelle Andreani and Mindi Scott (Signed by BOTH authors)

The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson (Signed)

Summer of Sloane by Erin L Schneider (Signed)

A Variety of Swag from these (and other) authors

and if we hit 1,000 entries I will throw in one of the following

The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood (Signed)
You Know Me Weel by Nina LaCour and David Levithan (Signed by BOTH authors)
Your Pick of ANY 2016 Contemporary Novel (or one from an earlier year if you really want)

This particular prize is only for people who live in the US/CANADA
Since I know some of you live outside of the US/Canada and you are just as important as my "local" readers INTERNATIONAL ENTRIES ARE WELCOME but seeing as international shipping is SO expensive, should you win, you will have a choice between 
as many of the three signed books from the larger picture above I can ship to you for $25 
Up to $30 worth of 2016 Contemporary Novels from The Book Depository (or earlier year[s] should you wish)

I know it's not QUITE as good, but seeing as I have already purchased the three novels above and I'm assuming I'm going to a State University come Fall (which means like, triple the cost) I don't really have a ton of extra money to spend.  

So, now that all of that is out of the way let's get onto how you can enter to win these fabulous prizes.  All you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below and you're all set.  The giveaway will run until the day I finish my classes (which also happens to be the day I graduate from community college and earn my Bachelor's of Science), which, for those of you who aren't me, is June 17th.

2016 Fantasy Extravaganza Author Selection

Hey guys, I know I've been kind of MIA for a while, school is rather nuts and actually having time to do anything other than work on homework is something of a miracle, but I have managed to squirrel away a few minutes here and there to think about some upcoming features on the blog I'm hoping to work on later this year.  If you were with me last year you probably remember a series of interviews I did with authors that I dubbed the Fantasy Extravaganza, and I decided that since it was so much fun and everyone seemed to really enjoy it that I would do the same thing again this year, but instead of flailing around last minute I decided I would 1) start early and 2) get your input on who you want to see me interview!  So to that effect I've put together a list of 2016 YA fantasy novels (and their authors) that I thought you all might be interested in.  All you have to do is fill out the form I've embedded into the post below and tell me who YOU want to see interviews (and probably giveaways) with.  Pretty simple, right?  I've also added a small space at the bottom of the form so you can write in any authors/titles that I may have missed, because with all of the awesome fantasy books out this year I'm positive I missed at least a few.
