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: When will Books for Tea be back in stock?Asked by Jillian B., March 2020
More subscriptions become available on the 21st of each month.
Very few book clubs offer “middle school” as a genre. I’m 50+ and enjoy mostly fantasy & YA but sometimes older audience versions are a bit more heavy/ serious/ intense than I’m looking for.
I like my 1st book (it’s a fantasy with Chinese zodiac themed superpowers), will probably buy the next in the series, like the packaging (recyclable, and a present wrapped attractively somehow delights more), and I really appreciate the surprise factor (I’m 5 mos into what’ll likely be a +/- 12mo coronavirus quarantine so the same-ness of life, inc books I’d pick myself, has been wearying).
I love these book clubs!!!!!!
We received "The Book Drop" from Bethany Beach books and it was an absolute delight. Every year we wind of heading over to Bethany Beach Books from OCMD because no matter how many books we pack, my daughter will read through them all. It's become an annual trip while at the beach. We were so excited to see that they offer a book club. It's a great way to remember our time in the shop while at the beach and support a great local store.
The book sent was perfect for my daughter who is all about mystery reading at the moment.
A fun subscription! Great book and I love the extra goodies! Reasonable shipping speed and well packaged. I recommend this Seller.
I got the young adult subscription for my sister and she has been loving it! She’s has enjoyed every book!
I discovered this subscription when hunting for Christmas gifts, and I am so glad I did!! I ordered the bubbly and tea combination for my mother in law. She makes a point to support independent bookstores but has found it challenging to visit during Covid, so it was a perfect gift. Customer service was amazing and responsive, and helped me change the address after I had placed the order so I could keep it a surprise. You can tell how thoughtful the curation is with this subscription. Each book I’ve received has been a perfect fit with the genre, very well written, and not something I would have thought to select on my own. The packaging is thoughtful as well, and the notes from the authors make the books feel even more special. I ended up purchasing extra subscriptions for myself and my sister in law to form a virtual book club. All three of us are loving it, and the extra chance to connect is priceless.
I was searching online for an independent bookstore that had a subscription service when I came upon The Book Drop. I Immediately was impressed by the different possibilities that were offered, and the well-written descriptions of not only the groups but the overall operation. I signed for the tea group and so far, the two books that I have received are solid reads. Better yet, each book I might never have picked out myself. It was wonderful participating in my first virtual book meeting with the author, too. To sum it up, the subscription is affordable, the book picks are amazing and the process easy. Thank you so much. You've made my reading life all the better.
I surprised my mom with The Book Drop over the holidays. The first book arrived in January and she was pleasantly surprised. When I told her about that bookstore itself she became excited, and after reading her first book I got an antsy call asking when the next one would arrive!
My mom has received two Book Drops so far. She’s enjoyed both the books, but is also so excited to see what comes next. Highly recommend the Book Drop subscription.
I'm so happy that I discovered this subscription box! In January,I subscribed to The Book Drop for the books for tea option, and I'm already hooked. I'm very excited to see what the next book choices will be.
I am so pleased with my first Book Drop. I subscribed to alternating Books for Tea and Coffee. I likely would not have picked up the January Books for Tea title for myself but, it is a great read.
I’m thrilled with my subscription with The Book Drop! I chose the combination Tea/Bubbly and am currently reading my third book. I feel like I’m getting a wonderful surprise gift each month! I love the letters from the authors and the postcards explaining the selection. The Star Crossed Sisters of Tuscany, How to Fail at Flirting, and Bride of the Sea are wonderful reads!
