What’s in it? A recently released novel as well as 3 related items and a note from the curator.

Novel Editions is a Canadian subscription box for book lovers. Each month, Novel Editions sends a carefully curated box of bookish items. Expect to receive a fiction novel released in the last 6 months, 3-4 items that are relevant to the book, plus a note from the curator explaining why she chose the book. The founder, Alex, spends a great deal of time each month curating the perfect box to bring joy to subscribers.

Boxes ship the first week of each month via Canada Post. Shipping is a flat rate $9.61 across Canada. A single month subscription is non-recurring, so you need to sign up again the following month. The 3 month terms are pre-paid and non-recurring and shipping is included in the total cost.

Mid-month, Alex releases a Book Club Guide on the Novel Editions Blog. There is also a Novel Editions Book Club Facebook Group where subscribers can share their thoughts and join in an online monthly book chat. With these features, Novel Editions really is a complete "book club in a box".

The theme for March is "Dark Love".

This month's box features a psychological thriller! According to Alex, there is a big twist ending that we won't expect.

The product card details the items included in the box.

Behind Her Eyes Inspired Pencils by Novel Editions (8 pencils, ~$10)
These pencils are stamped with "Truly, Madly, Deeply" and "Sweet Dreams". They were custom made for Novel Editions, so the price is estimated based on similar products found on Etsy.

NeenaCreates Pride and Prejudice Literary Scarf  ($24 retail, $13 sale price)
This scarf is an American Apparel t-shirt scarf, hand printed with a quote from Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. The quote is from Mr. Darcy's proposal to Elizabeth. This is a nice item to help you get cozy for reading time.
"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."

BeninCasa Design To Do List Notepad ($5)
This item is apprently inspired by one of the characters in the book. I haven't read it yet so I can't confirm. I do love lists though so I will use this!

Novel Editions Bookmark
A great item to have on hand so you don't have to "dog ear" your pages.

And now for the book!

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough (Paperback, $21.35 retail)
Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she's thrilled she finally connected with someone.

When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can't keep his eyes off Louise.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who's new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you've read before.

David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?

As Louise is drawn into David and Adele's orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can't guess how wrong-and how far a person might go to protect their marriage's secrets.

In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.

This book sounds very good! I can't wait to dig in. It was just released at the end of January so it's brand new. Alex said she finished it in two days, so I'm going to clear a night off my calendar and turn off my phone. It's raining in Vancouver, so that helps set the mood!

The March Novel Editions box included a new release novel, plus three bonus items. The retail value of the items in this box is over $60 Canadian. Alex did a great job curating the box this month. The items selected are perfect. I also love how she wraps the book and picks the crinkle paper to match the card inserts. It's a nerdy thing, but I really appreciate the gift presentation and colour coordination! If you received this box, the Book Club Chat is April 5th on Facebook. Check the Novel Editions page for time.
