Q: How do you define a dark book?Asked by Luella I., 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 !
Q: Are these books for teenagers or adults?Asked by Jenny C., November 2020
our books are intended for readers 18 and over.
I LOVE THIS! This is very similar to Once Upon a Book Club but with more of a dark/thriller spin. I haven’t been able to dive into the book yet but this looks AMAZING! I would soooo highly recommend for anyone who loves book subs!!
UPDATE: Finished the box and it was AMAZING. The gifts were super well thought out too. Highly recommend!!!
We are very happy you loved your book box and our gift selections !
I got this for my 16 year old daughter, she received the box about 10 minutes ago. She was so excited that she has already read the book to the first gift and it gave her the chills! She can hardly wait for gift 2! I don’t know who came up with this premiss, but they are brilliant! Talk about getting into the story! One of my best purchases EVER!
Thank you Lisa ! We are glad your daughter loved our box !
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 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!
OK THIS BOX IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow!!! This is an amazing box!!! Bought it for my daughter and will be keeping the subscription...Such a great idea and beautiful packaging and presentation...

I absolutely love this book box! I’ve just received my third box and can’t wait to read and open the gifts! I’ve done other book boxes but this by far is the BEST! I’ve only bought a 3 month subscription but I’m for sure renewing! Thank you!

Our first November book box was all about Dark Academia ! Our box included the 1992 classic The Secret History by Donna Tartt, bookish gifts and items directly mentioned in this dark read to truly enhance your reading experience.
Our December book box was all about dark hidden details ! Our Box was curated around Gillian Flynn's cult classic Dark Places. We included items mentioned in the books along with bookish themed items that can be used well after your reading experience is over! With this Box our readers were truly able to confirm if The Devil was truly in the details.
Our January box embodied love, memory, youth and loss all in one box. Our book box featured Jeffrey Eugenides's intriguing suburban tragedy, The Virgin Suicides. In our box we included items mentioned in the books along with bookish themed items that can be used well after your reading experience is over ! With this box our readers truly experience what it means what obsession, love and loss all means in one reading.
Our February Book Box featured M.L Rio's debut novel If We Were Villains, a chilling tale of love, death and redemption. A beautifully written dark read that is as complex and raw as its characters. In our box we featured A February book box brochure, a custom bookmark and five individually wrapped, boxed and numbered gifts (combination of bookish gifts and items mentioned in the book).
