Customer Questions (4)


Q: If an upcoming book is one I’ve already read, am I able to skip a box?Asked by Aimee D., May 2021

Peruse Book Club answered...May 2021

Hi Aimee,
Yes! You are welcome to contact us before the 15th of the month if you'd like us to skip a month for you! We can adjust the subscription renewal date on our end.
I don't think that Cratejoy offers a way to skip a month from their subscription management.
Thank you!


Q: Since I ordered on 3/5/21 and did the 3 month subscription, can you tell me what month and approximately when I will get the box? I did the Mystery club.Asked by Claudia F., March 2021

Peruse Book Club answered...March 2021

Thanks for your question!
Since you ordered on 3/5, your first shipment will go out the last week of March.
All shipments are mailed on the last week of the month, so your following shipments will be sent the last week of April, and the last week of May.

Each box contains one hardcover or trade paperback book, plus 2-3 items that are not samples.

Seller is very responsive and was able to accommodate my request to get a gift to my sister in time! The packaging was so pretty and I know she’s going to love the items that came with the box. I’m going to order one for myself too so we can discuss together over cocktails 🍸 🍹

Yay! So glad we could offer you a way to connect with your sister! Cheers :)

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 in all categories, but I think the mystery genre has been my favorite overall. They always choose creative and meaningful gifts to coordinate with the story. They also have good customer service. I highly recommend this box.

I'm so excited about this box! All of the items that I received in my first Literary Fiction box were so much fun! I got a good quality manicure set, a really cool bluetooth speaker, and the cutest little set of chocolates! Really cool that the book is signed by the author too :) Very happy with my purchase so far, I hope my next boxes are this cool too!

Fun book club

I like their direct site bc you can order single boxes and holiday ones too, but like the gift option here!

Every month I'm so thrilled to receive my Peruse box!
Each book has been so much fun, and they always announce the title prior to shipping so the one time I wanted to skip there was no issue doing that.
The items seem to be supplied by small businesses and you can tell that care went into the selection.
I also love their single purchase boxes at their site. Hope that they stick around.

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 your review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed the Halloween box :)

I found Peruse through insta a few months ago, and I have been so happy with my subscription. They always pick the best books and started including signed book plates from some big authors lately too!!
I think they must be new because they recently got new packaging that's really cute. The items they include have been really fun and relevant. Definitely not the dollar store junk I've received in other boxes. Although I'm not a big dark chocolate person, and I've received that twice. Chocolates were gorgeous though.
I'm in the Mystery club for reference, but have switched one shipment to receive the fiction club too.

We have made an effort to include more variety of chocolate - our recent shipments contained some beautiful milk chocolates that we hope you enjoyed!

I received the Mystery/Suspense Club as a gift from my bff and loved it so much I just signed up for the Fiction Club too! The stuff in my first Mystery Box was so cute! I loved the necklace, which felt like a good quality and I'll actually wear. And the evidence notebook was freaking adorable, plus lined with cute paper. The chess set is too cute, I love tiny things!! It'll be perfect for our upcoming overseas flight in summer, god willing.
I can't wait to see what's in store with the Fiction Club box! Customer service was also great! She was so sweet when I reached out to ask a few questions to figure out which club to subscribe to.

Love My Box!

Everything in my box was very high quality. The candle smelled AMAZING and the drinks were so fun to make. Another friend of mine got the box as well and it’s been a good way to connect during this time of isolation! Would also make the perfect Christmas gift!
