Q: I received this as a gift and was told I would be able to choose between 2 books each month but I haven't been contacted by anyone to set this up. Can someone please contact me asapAsked by Amy K., April 2021
I have sent you an email. Book titles are released on the first of every month. That is also when an email will go out to subscribers to pick their book for that current month.
Q: Can I only get subscription through Cratejoy? I’m waiting for first shipment which was $60 with shipping. Seems quite expensive so big expectationsAsked by Jeanne B., March 2021
Our team has just sent you an email :)
Q: Do you only ship out harcover books (regardless of box option)? I want to make sure as that is what I want, but I see in the presentation "Crazy Rich Asians" appears to be the paperback edition. Asked by Gry C., January 2021
We will always send hardcover if that option is available. That is usually the case for newly released books, which is what we offer monthly. There have been a couple of months where a newly released book was only available as a paperback.
In the event that happens, we will increase the amount of items or value of the items in that particular box.
Q: What is the difference between mini, premium or full orders? Asked by Anna D., November 2020
We offer 3 different subscriptions:
Mini: Book, Candle, Bookmark, Custom playlist, Booklet w/ recipes and journal prompts, notecard featuring local artist, 5% of profits are donated to children's education
Full: Everything in Mini + cocktail or tea and a self care item
Premium: Everything in Full + artisan chocolate bar + a second self care item
This box absolutely made my day. It was so thoughtfully put together and on-theme. Love it!!
I really enjoy Authentic Books box! I love that you get to pick between very different books and that the items all relate and fit the look/feel/story of the book itself. They are definitely all about self care and pampering yourself with this box, and I love the aesthetic of this box and also the owner's mission. I love the candles so much! I also love that they have a give-back component to each box.
If they picked a book that you already know you want, it's like a little extra experience to get the box for the book. Give these guys a try!
This is my first box. I love the curation - candle, cocktail recipe & mix, body wash, bath seltzers! Unfortunately I already have the book so that was disappointing - although it was definitely on my TBR list. I’m trying to figure out the differences between the booklet item descriptions and what was actually in my box. There was no scarf or chocolates as referenced & pictured. However, they’re listed as option 2, 3 etc so perhaps different people get different items?
So happy you enjoyed your first box. Our monthly book titles can be found on our website and social media channels for your future picks.
Also, we offer 3 different box types, Mini Experience ($39), Full Experience ($49), and Premium Experience ($59). Items Touch #3 (scarf) and chocolate are found in our Premium Experience.
I'm here if you have any other questions and thank you tremendously for taking the time out to leave a review.

Authentic Books exceeded all my expectations! I honestly feel like everyone should know about this!! Their book choices are always on point, they curate items that are beautiful and exciting, and their packaging is so attractive. Say yes!
Authentic Books is the best! You can tell each item is thouroughly thought about to coordinate with the
Book theme. The items are all amazing and from small businesses. I have NEVER been disappointed. Opening this box is like Christmas!
I got a little impatient waiting for my first box, buy I must say that I finally received it and I am excited, and looking forward to getting future boxes. I haven’t started reading yet, but I am so excited for this subscription. This subscription box is put together so well, with all of the items that you receive and go with the theme and title of the book is so fun.
This is one of my favorite book boxes in the world. I truly look forward to my purple box every month !! I subscribe to a lot of book boxes (Owlcrate, FairyLoot)but this one is special and unique. Each box is curated with such care by Natisha and she truly puts so much time and effort into every single item she selects for the box. I’ve felt like every box has been magnificent and I’ve loved every product I’ve received. I also LOVE the fact that all of the 5 senses are used - this is so unique and makes it all the more immersive and fun. I also love the candles included, they’re absolutely gorgeous and smell so fresh and not overpowering at all. I love that Natisha includes matches as well !! There’s so many unique and wonderful aspects of this box I could go on for hours. If you aren’t already subscribed to this box, it is 100% worth every single dollar. 5/5 stars on every aspect !! 🌟💜
Great book selections. Love the little details to make it such a wonderful experience.
Wonderful, beautiful book box! So thoughtfully and well curated to fit around your book selection. I really enjoyed opening my book box, and it was obvious there was much time and thought put into it. The products are all high quality and smell/taste amazing! I’m in love with the candle!!! Such an amazing box for “me time” when I need it most. Thank you for enhancing the reading experience to all senses and for all the time and thought put in to making these amazing boxes. Looking forward to the next one!
Very creative and on point. I love the themed items, using them while reading the books really pulls me into the story. Would recommend!
