Why We Love Book Subscription Boxes

Reading can be just as fun as sitting back and watching your favorite Netflix show. Just how you tell yourself one more episode, you’ll be telling yourself just 1 more (or 2) chapters before you head off to bed.

There’s something so satisfying about getting lost in a new book, and if you haven’t felt that feeling in a while, it’s time to get back into reading. If you’re not sure where to start, no worries. We’ve got you covered with our favorite book of the month gifts.

In an effort to make sure everyone can start (or grow) their TBR list, the Cratejoy team perused the digital bookshelves to find our favorite monthly book boxes . From early readers to the wisest among us, we’ve found book subscriptions for all age ranges and lovers of every genre!

Also, many of these unique book subscription boxes don’t just deliver books – many of them come with useful self-care products like scented candles, body care gifts, and more. You don’t even have to make that extra online order for an at-home spa day. Pamper yourself in a warm bubble bath while you enjoy your new book. And yes, feel free to pour that glass of wine while you unwind.

Monthly reading subscriptions can help you ward off analysis paralysis, add an element of surprise to any IRL book club, or bring a virtual book club right to your front door. From fiction to nonfiction, young adult , romance , or science fiction and fantasy , there's a book subscription box for everyone.
