Customer Questions (1)


Q: Is this box okay for tweens/teens? Also do you often do mystery or historical fiction? Thanks! 😊 Asked by Scooby D., November 2021

Peruse Book Club answered...November 2021

Peruse is intended for readers who are 21+, as each box contains a cocktail recipe themed off of the monthly title.
We offer 2 clubs on Cratejoy, the Literary Fiction Club box, and the Mystery/Suspense Club box. The Literary Fiction Club does sometimes contain historical fiction titles :)

I've ordered this box as a gift for my 17 year old before. She tends to like literary fiction more than YA, so the titles and items worked for her, and I just took out the drink recipe. Depends on your kid and their maturity level or what they like to read!

UPDATE: This is a great book subscription that I am thoroughly enjoying. I've had the pleasure of receiving 6 of their boxes so far. And, am also reading the books featured in the other boxes I did not get each month. Their book selection is top notch, but I think the Missing Treasures of Amy Ashton book has been my favorite overall. They always choose creative and meaningful gifts to coordinate with the story. They also have good customer service. HIGHLY recommend this book box for yourself or for a gift.
To say I'm addicted to book subscription boxes would be a huge understatement. I've received HUNDREDS over the past 2 years... no joke. Peruse is quickly turning into my favorite one. I've received 2 boxes from them so far and feel like they hit it out of the park both times. I haven't read my second book yet but, I can say that the first book and companion gifts went together perfectly. It's like they took the essence of the book and pulled the most relevant parts of it out and gifted them to me with fun, usable items and recipes. I loved it so much! I'll definitely be extending this subscription.

Ooops accidentally left my review on the Mystery Club, so I'll repost here!
I have received the Mom Jeans and Other Mistakes box so far, and it is so much fun!
The items were all really cool - a manicure set, a bluetooth speaker in a really cute color, and the sweetest little chocolates! The book was signed by the author too which was kinda special. I hope my future boxes are as cool!

Great Quality!

Just got the Halloween Horror box in the mail! I'm a huge fan of The Shining, and this box is so cool! I loved the themed items, the bath bomb smelled amazing and loved that it had a crystal inside!! and the chocolates were cute and delicious. My favorite part was the super cool copy of the book, I have been searching for a hardcover and can never find one. Great box in terms of quality!

Thank you for the kind review, I'm so happy that you enjoyed your Halloween box!

The owner was so so helpful and was able to send out a box to my friend for her birthday same day! She gave me a list of all the ones that were currently available and let me pick for the first one. Very grateful,

I love this box! I subscribed a few months ago from an Instagram ad and have been so happy with all of the titles so far. They are such a fun variety, and much less "cheesey" than some other book subscriptions I've been a member of.
The items I've gotten have been useful and tie to the book so wonderfully.
My only issue is that sometimes the boxes ship a few days after the end of the month, but that hasn't been problematic for me.
I haven't participated in any of the virtual meetings yet due to schedule conflicts, but would love to join at some point!

First of all, these boxes are adorable. I absolutely love the themed gifts that come with the books, and the recipes have all come out beautifully so far. I've only received two shipments, but both have been in excellent shape with nothing damaged.
As I said, I've only gotten two boxes, so I'm not sure if this is how things always are, but I have the classics box and so far both have been British classics. There's nothing wrong with this of course, they were both excellent, but if you exclusively send out British classics then I think that should be made clear somewhere so that someone doesn't get their hopes up for a more culturally diverse selection. Again, I've only gotten two of these so this could very well just be a coincidence, I just thought it was worth mentioning.

We're so happy that you are loving the boxes that you have received so far! We do include books in our Classics box outside of British classics! This month's shipment will include a beautiful copy of an American classic
