Which Monthly Box Of Books Is Best For You?

We live in an age where you never need to leave your house for anything. You can have groceries delivered (shipt.com), books, laundry detergent, music, toilet paper, electronics, movies, clothes, makeup, and more. It’s easy to get caught up in the downward spiral that is online shopping, and in the last couple years retailers have taken it one step further and stopped asking us to pick the things we buy. Thus comes the invention of the monthly box. It’s actually an amazing concept. I like makeup. I have enough to last me til I die, so send me sample sizes every month of things I might like (Birchbox, Ipsy). I love clothes, but sometimes my work clothes are questionable, so here’s my sizes. Now send me things with an option to buy (Stichfix).

I originally got Ipsy and my sister swears by the brilliance that is Stitchfix, but since what I love most is books and stories, I decided to do some research into some monthly boxes with bookish themes to satisfy your bookly needs each month.

Quarterly Book Box

This is a quarterly sign up from the readers at Book Riot. This is a box of books and goodies to come every three months. That is because it’s $50 a month. This box usually comes with at least three books relevant to what the theme for that quarter is. I got this box once a while ago. I didn’t keep it up because it was kinda expensive for me but would make a great gift for a friend.

Fandom Of The Month

I absolutely love this box. I just signed up last month and got my first box in may. It was Lord of the Rings-themed and I about died. It’s $13 a month plus shipping and it’s a great deal. Each month they pick a fandom and send you jewelry based on it. Check out their Instagram for pictures of previous months.

Appraising Pages

This shop just created their box. Their first month was in May. I signed up after lusting after their shirts and jewelry for months. It’s $30 a month plus shipping and it includes bookish goodies from around the Internet and a T-shirt from AP’s shop. I loved my first month, and can’t wait for the second.

Owl Crate

Owlcrate is a YA-themed book box. It’s $30 a month plus shipping for a single month. You can pick a plan from 1-6 months. Each month has a theme, and will include at least one YA novel as well as some extras. Right now subscriptions are closed for June, but you can sign up when subscriptions open in July. I haven’t gotten this one yet, but it’s definitely on the list.
