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.

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!!!!!!
Can’t praise this service enough! The book selection is superb and always interesting. Supporting a small local business is also a plus.
Just finished my second Book Drop book. I have a coffee and tea blend subscription and so far am loving it. One of the books was on my “to be read” list. The other I would not have picked out if I was browsing but I throughly enjoyed it. It is so nice to have books show up in your mailbox once a month.
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.
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 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!
