In My Mailbox: Week 85

In My Mailbox was started by Kristi at The Story Siren.

For Review:

Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles (Such an AMAZING follow-up!!! I think it was even better than Leaving Paradise. Be sure to check back for my review next week. Thanks, Flux!)
Seven Year Switch by Claire Cook (Very cute chick-lit from the author of Must Love Dogs (Have you seen the movie adaption? It's great! Anyhow, be sure to check back for a review soon!)
Kiss Me Deadly edited by Trisha Telep (I was so excited to receive this one, but it's only okay so far so I'm hoping it'll get better. Thanks, Nicole!)
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan (I read it as soon as I got it and let me tell you, it was so good. Defiantly one of my favorite books of '10 and very similar to something Sarah Dessen or Meg Cabot would write. Anyhow, be sure to lookout for my review, as well as a contest for the book, coming soon! Thanks, Selena!)
When I Was Joe by (It's really good so far! Thanks, Jessica!)
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (So excited about this one, even though I haven't read Catching Fire yet (I know, I'm so bad!) Thanks, Natalie! )
Solid by Shelley Workinger (Looks really good! Thanks, Shelley!)
The Brave Escape of Edith Wharton by Connie Nordhielm Wooldridge (Surprise package and it actually looks quite interesting! Thanks, Clarion Books!)
Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler (I've heard so many amazing things about this one so I can't wait to read it! Thanks, Graphia!)

Won from Mavie at The Bookologist:

Take the Reins by Jessica Burkhart (Looks cute! Thanks, Mavie & S&S!)

Swag from author Denise Jaden (Thanks so much Denise!):

~ Losing Faith Bookmarks to put with books I giveaway here and some to put out at the library were I volunteer at.
~ Got Faith? Stickers (Not shown, but they are supper cute!)
~ Assorted bookmarks for other authors and their books (including Freefall by Mindi Scott, a book I'm dying to read!)
~ Book plate for Losing Faith and Mistwood
~ A note from Denise

In all, a great week book and swag wise!

On another note, I will be starting school tomorrow. Oh, the horror of it all! And while I'll not only be sleep deprived and up to my head in work until next June (Cue *sigh*), I'll still be around in blogging world as much as I can (and given the fact I already have posts scheduled through mid October you won't be getting rid of me for a while ;). Please be patient with me if you send me an email, though, because it will probably take a day or two for me to answer them with school and everything. But for now, wish be luck, because quite frankly I need it. haha. :)

Anyhow, enough about me, what did you get this week? Anything cool? Let me know in the comments and feel free to link to your IMM posts in the comments, so I can check them out.
