Q: I just received my first box and I love how it is set up and the whole theme. Just curious though, do you ever put new releases in the boxes? I read this book a long time ago. Asked by Patricia O., April 2021

Down The Rabbit Hole Book Box answered...May 2021

Hi Patricia--
We are glad you love our theme and set up! We currently do not have plans on adding new releases to our boxes. What sets us apart from other book boxes is that we add dark books to our boxes our readers " might have missed or didn't know existed". We make it super easy for our readers to find out what our next book will be. We provide book themes, hints and we can be emailed or DM'd for our book hints.
We hope this answers your question !

Q: How do you define a dark book?Asked by Luella I., November 2020

Down The Rabbit Hole Book Box answered...November 2020

At Down The Rabbit Hole we define dark books as a book without a happy ending. The books we will choose for you will have scary and dark plots, not so nice protagonists that will leave you questioning the world as it is. There will be no books with happy endings coming from us !

DTRH book boxes have really pushed me out of my normal routine. Often, the books are not ones I would have chosen for myself but then I always end up pleasantly surprised because they’re always fantastic!! Not only do they choose amazing books, but they also take the time to put attention and detail into every box.
My last box-Death on the Nile was fabulous. Instead of a bookmark, there was a ticket onto the ship-so it felt like I had a stepped onto the ship, which was the setting of the book! The gifts are always perfectly matched to what’s going on in the book. I love that the gifts aren’t always literal and instead inspired by what’s going on in the book.
With a DTRH subscription, you will fall in love with books you maybe wouldn’t have read otherwise. It’s my favorite day of the month when this box comes because it’s beyond enjoyable and the gifts are so great! Always items that are usable and bring the story to life. I highly recommend this box!!!
In comparison to other boxes, I think this one is the best for value, content and gifts, as well as attention to detail.
And great customer service!

One of my absolute favorite subscriptions. There are a few book boxes that have you open gifts at certain parts of the story but what sets this one apart is the quality of the books themselves. They deliver their promise on dark storylines so if that’s your jam, this is the box for you. The two I’ve received thus far have been excellent, and coincidentally are based around books I likely wouldn’t have selected myself so they were also wonderful surprises. The gifts are often useful and certainly facilitate engagement with the events in the story. Shoutout also to the attention to detail in the packaging - each month’s stickers, colors, and general designs fit the books so well. Bravo!

I just love this box! The books they pick are outstanding. They aren't newly released books, in my experience, and that seems to give them much more flexibility to dig around for GREAT books (that I probably missed over the years) that have so much more depth than the "beach reads" type books I get with another box. They also put so much thought into the gifts. Highly recommend!

I wanted to try out one of these boxes and I’m glad I did! I really enjoyed the book and the gifts tied in pretty well with the story.
I love how clues are given for the upcoming boxes so you can decide whether or not the next book will interest you.
I will definitely get another one of these boxes in the future!
