Q: Is there a way to purchase past boxes? I would like to get one of these for my grandmother to kinda brighten her day but would like to pick a genre/book that I think she would like. Is that possible? Asked by Sarah F., March 2020
Any past boxes they have for sale are in their shop on their main website.
Q: Are the books always some type of romance or love story?Asked by Trish O., May 2019
Book genres range each month, though the only time we've included a specific romance book is in our Valentine's Day box! Most other month's we've included mystery, historical fiction, contemporary fiction, and magical realism in our adult box, while young adult is a bit broader, featuring fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, mystery, and more!
It main genre isn't romance but there may be a love interest or romance within the books. The adults box is usually historical fiction, contemporary, magical realism and thriller-like book. YA box are broader like Logan said. Mystery, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, Fantasy, etc.
Q: Does this gift tailor to mostly young adults only? I was thinking I would get it for my grandmother, but wasnt sure if she would like the books.Asked by Paul K., June 2019
You would probably want to order the Adult books for your grandmother. I'm 57 and that's what I read. Every now and then, though, there's a Young Adult book that sounds interesting and I will order that as a gift to myself, also.
The gifts are for woman in general and some can even be unisex. There have been gifts such as tea towel, apron, honey, socks which are really good quality. For reading material wise the adult box might suit her more since the book they pick are usual historical fiction, mystery, romance or heavier topics.
They have a young adult box and an adult box. If you look at some of the amazing past boxes
Hi there! We offer both adult and young adult boxes. Our adult boxes are targeted for anyone ages 18+ and our young adult boxes are for anyone ages 14+!

Yes, you can just email them and they'll get back to you within 48 business hours.
I really love once upon a book club I normally get the young adult books and sometimes the book isnt what I expect it to be and I end up loving the book anyways they pick the right moments to add a gift and get u into the book
This was the coolest box I’ve ever received. I devoured the book in a night because I wanted to see all my cool gifts. I’m in love!
I cannot say enough good things about this. I received the first box of a subscription that was gifted to me by my mother. It was a wonderful surprise... packaged in an adorable box on the outside, with lovely boxed gifts and a book inside. The book I got is SO good I am finding it very hard to put down. And the excited anticipation of opening a gift at a specified time is thrilling. I have opened two of my 4 gifts so far and the immersion in the story makes them that much more of a treasure. This has to be one of the best gifts I have ever received. As if this were not enough, the customer service is FANTASTIC!
Been subscribing to this for a few months now, and am always excited when the box comes. I'm an avid reader (subscribe to 4 book clubs, and read ~ 6 per month). The books are generally decent - I like that it exposes me to good books and writers I would not generally pick out myself. I like that most of them come with a signed bookplate, but would love it if the books themselves were signed, as other subscriptions do.
The quality of the items are hit and miss. I love the mugs (with quotes from the books) that have been included and adore the quote cards, when they're included. Much of the items are lower quality than i would purchase for myself, but that's to be expected to keep the subscription costs manageable. I have gotten good use from some of the smaller items (cooling cloths, pens, spoons, charging cables, etc). The jewelry items and journal have been a miss - generally cheap to mid quality, and not to personal taste (though generally consistent with the book). I would love to see more things like mugs/glass cups, candles, etc incorporated in when applicable to the story.
The customer service is great! There was an occasion where my box seemed to be missing an item. I emailed them what was included, and they confirmed an item was missing and sent the item.
Overall, I love the interactive experience and well thought out items this subscription provides,...
Seriously my favorite subscription box of all time! I love to read but used to find myself in ruts of not reading because of just being busy with life. But this changed once I started getting this box. Now, I devour the books! It is apparent how much thought and care goes into the chosen gifts, which are spot on. I also find sometimes that I get stuck reading the same genre and this subscription introduces me to books I would never buy but find that I absolutely adore. I recommend this subscription box to all of my reading friends.
Other than a delay in shipping - maybe due to Christmas season, post office delays, long distance shipping, the subscription is amazing. Cannot wait to hear how my granddaughter enjoys the process.
This box is wonderfully executed: each item comes beautifully packaged, there is group with whom to discuss the monthly read, interesting discussion questions, and unquestionably well-curated items that go along with the read. I found the experience immersive and enjoyable. However, their book choices aren't usually my cup of tea and so I've chosen to cancel this service. Take a look at their book choices before you subscribe and, if you're not an extremely picky reader, check out this fantastic box.
Ordered 2 as gifts.
We just received our box and wanted to post a review.
Overall: The box looks pretty cool. It was a gift for my daughter so I am not the one reading the book or opening the gifts but have high hopes she will enjoy it.
My big issue was with the shipping of the box and the response of the company, I was pretty excited to give this as a gift so planned ahead and ordered early according to their recommendations on their website, so it would come in time for Christmas. They state that they ship between the 17-20 and that is not what happened and they responded with a “sorry for the confusion but we don’t guarantee deliver by Christmas and usps is doing all they can to get them delivered.” My biggest issue was that they didn’t take responsibility for their error. They didn’t have the box packed or shipped by the date they said they would and didn’t offer to refund any of the 9.50 shipping cost. The company didn’t really seem to care much that they made a mistake and that is why I give them two stars for shipping.
Would I buy again- I am not sure about that-there are a lot of book boxes out there to try and my interactions with the company haven’t been super positive.
I love this monthly box. The books are wonderful and I love all the thematic gifts that I open while reading. I have given this gift to many friends and family members and everyone loves them.
I love this box. I am totally addicted.
