I purchased this box for my 12 year old granddaughter. The first box was great--she loved it, especially the books. I was very disappointed in the second box as we are a christian family and it came with a book that does not align with our religious beliefs regarding same sex attractions.
I would kindly recommend that you alert the customers regarding sexual book content, especially in consideration of this age group and the fact that previewing and censoring is not available prior purchasing or gifting. Or perhaps it would be best to just not include books that are not appropriate for everyone. I am sorry for the low rating as it is a well put together box, but it is no longer for us which the rating indicates.
Thanks for taking the time to leave this honest review. While we try to choose books every month that will suit all subscribers, we know that sometimes we can not please everyone. We do however offer a book replacement when we totally miss the mark. If you'd like to reach out personally via email, we'd be happy to replace the book with something that your granddaughter would enjoy more.
Thanks for supporting my daughter's small business, and we look forward to hearing from you shortly.

I ordered the 3 month subscription as a birthday gift for my soon to be 9 year old goddaughter. She got her first box today and called me right away to tell me how much she loves everything in it! All the extra goodies in addition to the books makes this an amazing value!
Great first box!
I purchased this subscription for my Granddaughter that lives far from me. She has received two boxes so far and loved each one, and the best part is that she thinks of me whenever she gets one.
This is a very high value box for a Tween. I gave my daughter a subscription because she was reading through the school and local library novels faster than they can buy new ones. She loves the items, and they make great small gifts to friends, and the books are going to make a great addition to the school library to share the love.
My granddaughter absolutely love the box. She immediately started reading the books.
My daughter loved it!
my 12 yr old loved everything about it
Presented as a gift to my 11-year-old niece, the beTWEEN the Bookends monthly subscription has proven its success. There is a regular arrival of positive feedback soon after delivery, and hearing her excitement about a number of the contents has provided not only satisfaction with accomplishing the purchase of a decent gift, but also joy that my niece knows her uncle loves her. Discussing the contents of each delivery has become quite the conversation starter as well. Thanks!
One of the absolute best gift ideas for young readers or for those who want to encourage the love of reading. These boxes have delightful lifestyle items and fun themes every month, with mini boxes and single purchase options as well. There’s something for everyone and the box builders clearly put a lot of time and effort into creating the whole effect! Love it and totally recommend!
Super cute box and well worth the money! I got a 3 month subscription for my daughter and I will most likely renew when it’s up.
Great product, great customer service, very cute.
It feels so great to support such a wonderful business. All the items were good quality and so fun! A great box for even older girls. We will be trying the mini box and book only box too in months where we want less. What a great idea! Customer service is fast and top notch.
My 9 year old has a hard time finding appropriate books that match her interest but also her reading level. This box solves that problem! I love that I can feel comfortable letting her read these solo without me reviewing too much or reading with her. Also love that there are usually 2 books in a box, which is a great value, but also guarantees she will love at least one book so the box doesn’t end up feeling like a waste if one isn’t a hit. They also pick some awesome goodies and we’ve discovered some fun new places to shop small through the products! Jillian is very in tune with the tween audience and does a fantastic job with these boxes!
Shipped quickly such a great box ! Everything in the box was creatively put together and the books are amazing!
My daughter loved everything in this box. Perfect for a 10 year old avid reader. She couldn't wait to start reading the books.
My tween loves this box! It has a nice mix of products (stationary, self care, trinkets) and the books are perfect.
My daughter loved her box! All the items are great, everything was packaged beautifully, and it arrived sooner than expected. Absolutely no complaints!
Given as Christmas and Valentine's Day gifts, these were a huge hit with my great-nieces, ages 8 & 10. The items selected were on target for both of them and I could tell were chosen carefully to make the most bang. Thank you!
I have been so pleased with these boxes! Super fun items that are perfectly matched to the books. I like how they highlight different small businesses in each box also. Great idea!
I purchased this subscription for my 10 year old twin nieces. It was a wonderful surprise for them to get something in the mail, and they have just started to truly enjoy reading. I wanted to encourage them to continue and with them recently switching to home schooling because of Covid, having something special come in the mail was a great mood booster for them. They loved the books and had a blast with the extra tween products. Overall a great experience for them and I will definately keep this going for them.
Over all I think it really intrests me and I want to keep on loving them and getting different things every time
Best Gift for her personality...
I paid for the subscription for my daughter but haven’t received anything. A lot of money for nothing.
We are so sorry about this. While our boxes all ship out the first week of every month, the postal service is experiencing significant delays due to the pandemic and now the holiday rush as well! I did just just your tracking information (which was sent to you in an email as well, please check your spam folder if you've not been receiving our emails), and your box is currently on its way to the final destination. Please feel free to reach out to us directly at any time via the "contact seller" button.
Thank you so much!

Boxes are great. My 10 year old loves them. The books, however, seem a bit too simple for the age range. I’d love if we could choose vegan items, as many have had beeswax or honey in them. Everything is adorable, though, and daughter loves it even if it is on the easier side.
I am not sure. I have yet to receive my order from December. I’m hoping we will get it soon. Only reason I rated it was because I had to in order to write a review. I’m hoping we get the package soon.
Thanks for taking the time to reach out. I am so sorry you are still waiting on your December box! Unfortunately the USPS has been experiencing significant delays. I will be checking into this order, and emailing you directly.
