I am definitely one that is satisfied with just the book. I just finished one of the months book and loved it. I wouldn't have picked it up in store and that's why I like book drop because they get me out of my comfort zone.
Thank you so much for your review! Happy reading!
Sometimes I get so busy with work & life that I forget to read just for fun. The elixirs & tea book subscription has encouraged me to fit fun reading into my schedule (and now I really can’t put this book down!). Book choices so far have been excellent & enjoyable!
I love that it's a subscription deal out of an independent bookstore, for one. I also really like that it's affordable, especially for someone like me who lives all the way in India. The books chosen every month are really great and I've been introduced to a few new authors through The Book Drop, which is always a win in my book. 😉
We got this for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day, and she is loving. She has received 2 books so far and really enjoyed both!
I received a subscription to the Book Drop as a gift from my son and daughter-in-law and have enjoyed the books so much that I gave my mother a gift subscription for Mothers Day. She looks forward to her "mystery gift" each month and especially likes the large print font. The cherry on top is that we can support an independent book seller.
I received two of the same book. I had two subscriptions and instead of just canceling the 2nd subscription, they shipped the same book twice. I sent them a message and they explained how that happened. Which was fine. I have emailed them twice to ask if I could return the duplicate for a different book. No response. I probably will not be keeping this subscription.
Thank you for your review! You received two of the same book because you purchased two subscriptions =) You can most definitely return a book in exchange for another, as we explained in our email. Please give us longer than 24 hours to reply when emails are sent on weekends, we are a small team! Thank you so much & happy reading!
I’m very pleased with the book that was chosen. No problems. Thank you!
Always love the books I receive from The Book Drop!
I love supporting small independent book sellers and so far I have loved every book I have received.
It's all in the curation with this sub. The Book Drop is like having a personal shopper just for books. I feel like every order was picked out just for me by a good friend. Even when the book isn't something I'd have selected for myself, it's always a stellar read which I enjoy immensely. Also, I like knowing that I'm supporting an independent bookseller. Is this the cheapest way to find new reads? No, but it's one of the most fun if you like a surprise and sometimes enjoy a feeling of exclusivity. Be sure to sign up for their mailing list, too. The Memorial Day Mystery book sale was amazing!
LOVE the concept of a surprise book subscription. The staff was also super responsive when I had a question regarding my subscription.
Thanks for offering such a unique book subscription!
I am never disappointed in the Book Drop! I have loved being exposed to new authors and books I wouldn't have picked out myself but have loved. Fantastic subscription!
The Book Drop subscription feels like giving yourself a holiday gift every month. The box is packaged with care, and this also makes a fun gift for loved ones. I get overwhelmed trying to decide what to read. This takes the pressure off and introduces me to new authors.
I received a 12-month "coffee" Book Drop gift subscription from my husband for our 20th wedding anniversary in August. Except for one book, I have been delighted with the book selection. (The book was an okay read, but I didn't think it fit the description of a "coffee" book.) All of the authors have been new to me, which has introduced me to new authors. Each month I eagerly await the email that alerts me to the book being mailed, and then the anticipation builds until the book arrives in the mail. The mailer is recyclable, which is appreciated, and the book is wrapped in tissue paper inside the mailer. Each month the Book Drop has included a letter from the author, a must-read, and a themed bookmark. The Book Drop pays attention to the details and provides a quality subscription service.
I am 4 months in on my 1st Book Drop subscription and am hooked. All 4 books in the Books for Tea category have been wonderful. 'Bride of the Sea,' 'The Invisible Woman' and 'Conjuring Women' in particular are excellent. Books I doubt I'd have found on my own. Exceptional taste and selections. Plus seeing the package in my mailbox is like getting a bday surprise every month. The author letters are always interesting. This is just an overall well-done and well-run program. The only word that fits is delighted - I am delighted at discovering this bookstore and service. Their customer service is also personal and excellent. A real bright spot amidst trying times.
Book drop is affordable and you get great books you would not ordinarily pick!
I've subscribed for several 3-month Books for Tea subscriptions (and am planning to buy a longer subscription soon!) This is a great book subscription! The books have been ones that I hadn't heard about so it allowed me to find books I wouldn't ordinarily have picked up! I enjoy the extra touched, like the letter from the author, the bookmark, and the tissue paper wrapping. I also like the ease of renewing or skipping a subscription - no jumping through hoops if you need to skip a renewal. Overall, I highly recommend this subscription box!
I really love this box - the books have all been fabulous and I've really enjoyed the cute packaging and curated descriptions. I always look forward to the next one.
I have gifted both the middle grade & YA subscription to my kids and both have been incredibly well received! The books chosen by The Book Drop are unique, interesting and fully capture the attention of my tween & teen. The YA picks are especially good and my teen commented that the books she receives are often titles she sees talked about on tik tok.
I received a romance book (teen romance i believe) as my first book! while i am still young and all, teen romance isn't really my go to for reading. overall though i received the book on time, it was in great condition and i love the bookmark! i look forward to my next one
This was a gift for my stepmom's birthday. She loved it and said the items included with the book (especially the gardening themed add on) were fun and creative. Living in DE, she's looking forward to visiting the store in Bethany.
Great book....looking forward to reading it.
I love this book subscription! As someone who literally defaults to the same genre over and over (which, The Book Drop does have - books for coffee lol), I love that you can pick a genre and they surprise you. I do the “Tea/Bubbly” alternating subscription and even after only 2 months in, I’m super satisfied. I’ll be a subscriber for a long time.
I also love their little upgrades - my April upgrade included a plant you can grow, which is growing nicely already :)
Only one slight mark down on shipping. If you’re used to the speed of a larger company, this will not be overnight service. This is a small, independent bookstore with a small staff doing their mailing. Please be mindful of that and kind :)
Just got my box - once I read the book, I'll give a full rating!
Very good selections and a fun subscription.
