In My Mailbox 7

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.
I got one book for review this week.
My Soviet Kitchen: AND Companion Guide: Ivy's Guide to Life in the Ex-USSRLIST OF INGREDIENTS: Memory loss, homo sovieticus, and a wandering phD student. This is Neo-chick lit. with a darker side, a vodka twist and a generous slice of post-Soviet living.
It’s 1994 and English Ph.D student, Ivy Stone, wakes up in a Moscow flat with a hangover and a vague sense of unease…
Unable to remember what she did last night or why there is a cryptic Post-It note on her fridge, she begins an emotional, alcohol-fuelled journey via an Uzbek wedding, an Estonian sauna, and a Georgian serenade. What dark past haunts her new Russian man? And will she ever find the author of the mystery Post-It note?

The book came in its own little bag:

And then when I opened the bag look what I found:

How cool is that?

Thanks to Roast Books for sending me the book.

By the way, if you like the look of the book you can read an extract at the author's website.
