(btw, this post was almost entitled "Pinch me: I think I am so tired that I fell asleep and am now dreaming.")

Alethea from Read Now Sleep Later will be raffling off a set of her favorite books that she thinks don't get enough love out in the world of YA. Attend YA in Bloom and you might win:
ferret not included
Click on each book cover to find out more about these great authors!

Clare Dunkle wrote The Hollow Kindom series, By These Ten Bones, and The House of Dead Maids.
For writing that's a little out of the ordinary, a mile out of the mainstream, and just a shade dark, there's no better introduction than the first book of The Hollow Kingdom.

Maria V. Snyder is the author of the Study series, the Glass series, the Insiders duet, and several short stories published in anthologies like Corsets & Clockwork as well as The Eternal Kiss.
If you want danger, daring, and heart-stopping excitement, look no further!
(Also, Alethea actually appears in one of the books. :) You'll have to read to find out which one!)

Ebony McKenna is the author of The Summer of Shambles and The Autumn Palace (The Ondine series). Girl meets ferret. Ferret has a Scottish accent. Girl and ferret get in hilarious (occasionally sexy) trouble. Both Alethea and Kimberly laughed so hard, their cheeks hurt!

Even if you're not going to be at YA in Bloom, you can still enter a contest to win Inside Out and Ondine: The Summer of Shambles. Visit Read Now Sleep Later after 11:59 pm on Monday night for your chance to win!
