Q: Can I get a young adult box that is for a young man, not a girl? My son was in another subscription box, and he kept getting romance novels.Asked by Jeannebartells, April 2020
In an effort to promote gender fluidity among books, we consider all of our book subscriptions to be gender neutral.
Q: What will be the best option to choose for my 13yo son? The middle grade option or the Young Adult?Asked by Veronica G., May 2019
We always leave this up to the parent's discretion. Our Middle Grade subscription is best for readers who read at a Lexile range of 650-890. Our Young Adult subscription is recommended for readers with a maturity level of 13+. Some of our Young Adult books may contain mature content, please take a peek at our Past Books page on our website to see what we have sent in previous mailings.
I’d look at the books he’s recently read to get an idea of which level he’s at since all teenagers are different. If you can’t get that information, I would suggest that you start with middle grade books and if he feels that they’re too easy or that the themes are too childish, you can switch to young adult.
Q: What are the differences between the Books for Tea, Elixir, Coffee, and Bubbly?Asked by Lynelle H., December 2022
Thank you for reaching out! The differences between those subscriptions are the genres that they receive. Books for Tea receives historical fiction. Elixir receives fantasy. Coffee receives mysteries and thrillers. Finally, Bubbly receives romance.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Q: Will you ever do a subscription that includes all the genres? It's so hard to pick between them all when you read everything!Asked by Kelly W., November 2022
Thank you for reaching out! We do not have any plans at the moment to include a subscription with all genres, but that could be subject to change down the road. If we do add a subscription like that in the future, we will certainly send out an announcement.
These books are carefully and thoughtfully chosen. I have loved every single book. The care taken in packaging the books is evident when you open it up.
We have 2 subscriptions for our grandkids. One is graphic novels - who knew that didn't mean novels with graphic nudity! Our 7 year old grandson loves the graphic novels? Our 9 year old granddaughter is equally as happy with the middle grade books she gets.
Whoever makes the book selections does a great job. It is hard to find books that our grandkids haven't read but they manage to find books they've never heard of but thoroughly enjoy! After they've read the books they are passing them along to their school library so other kids can enjoy.
We are very happy with Book Drop for kids!
Bought Book Drop for my 12 year old daughter (young adult) and she’s loved the books! She enjoys getting a new one every month. They are all books she hasn’t read and enjoyed immensely.
I bought the Books for Tea (6 month plan) for my mother as a gift. She enjoyed it so much I purchased another subscription for her...but for 12 months! The books were literary/historical fiction and "newly released" and while some shipments were delayed, most of them arrived in a timely manner and always in good shape.
I wanted my children to explore different books/authors and the bookdrop did just that. My son has loved the book he received and has read it multiple times.
I've had The Book Drop for a little over a year now, and the excitement is still there to see what book I'm going to get for that month! I've tried out a few different subscription options since I read a little bit of everything, and the choices are wonderful! Some books I received I would have never thought to pick up if it wasn't for this subscription. Can't wait to see what other 2023 picks I receive!
My daughter gave me a 3 month subscription of the Books for Tea for a gift, and I was hooked, so I enthusiastically renewed with the mix of coffee and tea books. I have enjoyed all of the books I’ve read, and feel like I’ve expanded my genre choices with reads that normally may not have caught my eye. Wonderful subscription!
Got a subscription for my 88 year old mother who was having trouble getting to the library. She reads books and watches National Public Broadcasting. She has absolutely loved the anticipation of a new book a month and has enjoyed reading the books that have been sent. Thank you very much for bringing joy to my Mom!
Received two shipments - both books were ones I hadn't read or heard of. Finished the first which I really enjoyed and am ready to start the second book. Books were nicely packaged. Love supporting this bookstore, which comes from the beach town where I spent all of my childhood summers!
Each book that I have received has been enthralling and so worth learning about the history of the story.
