Dreaming of Books - Giveaway Hop

Thanks I am a Reader, Not a Writer and Martha's bookshelf for hosting another Book Hop.

I have had a few giveaways lately that have been US & Canada.  I have many international followers and I felt bad.  The reason was because I shipped 5 books overseas just before Christmas and ran out of money.  Therefore, this one is  ~INTERNATIONAL~

There will only be one prize this go around, but it will include three books.  I went for a theme this time.  Vampires can be a good dream or a nightmare.

Book #1  I won this one in a goodreads first read. It's short and it's poetry.

Three tales of angstful adventure await you in this hilarious brouhaha of rain-soaked idiocy. Follow our young narrator as he discovers what a douchebag he used to be and how lucky he is now. At times funny, at times sad, at all times romantic and weird, this volume will teach you life's most important lesson: never to hang out with girls who live in time-traveling castles.

Book #2.  I purchased this one and read it, I never plan on reading it again.  "Nighlight" by the Harvard Lampoon
About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight. Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.

Book #3.  I purchased this one a few years ago, I haven't read it, and I don't think I will get around to it anytime soon.  So, I thought someone else might like to give it a new home and a chance to be read.
This is a collection of short stories edited by Jane Yolen and Martin H. Greenberg
