#Unboxing Prudence and the Crow – February 2019

As a pre-Christmas treat to myself, I signed up to the fabulous Prudence and the Crow Book Subscription service after seeing some of their fabulous posts on Instagram!  Their mission is to share their love of vintage books amongst the bookish community, so put together a box each month to suit your tastes – you can choose from Classic Fiction, Sci-Fi, Classic Thriller, Children’s or Random – and then each month for £15 inc P&P, you will receive a fabulous vintage paperback along with a lovely handmade book bag, sweets and other treats – guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

Now I forgot to share the unboxing last month (blogger fail!) so thought I’d start with my 2nd parcel from them.  I’ve opted for the Sci-Fi package as I’m determined to increase my knowledge of classic Sci-Fi – and they often have the best/craziest covers!!

So here’s a look at what arrived through my letterbox – yep it all comes in a handy letterbox sized parcel! – this month!

All wrapped up in this fabulous Room With a View envelope!!

Goodies galore!!

Who can resist sweets and tea?! Not me!

A fabulous pencil with the engraving ‘Only Connect’ E.M.Forster, library card stamped with No.2 for my 2nd parcel and fab stickers!

And to the book…Sympathy by Olivia Sudjic

An electrifying novel of blood ties, online identities, and our tormented efforts to connect in the digital age.

At twenty-three, Alice Hare leaves England for New York. She falls in love with Manhattan, and becomes fixated on Mizuko Himura, an intriguing Japanese writer whose life has strange parallels to her own.

As Alice closes in on Mizuko, her ‘internet twin’, realities multiply and fact and fiction begin to blur. The relationship between the two women exposes a tangle of lies and sexual encounters. Three families collide as Alice learns that the swiftest answer to an ancient question – where do we come from? – can now be found online.

💜💜💜💜💜

So there we have it! Really love this mix of goodies and yet another book that I’ve heard very little about but am eager to read after seeing that blurb!  Have you read it? Tried any of these products?
