Q: How often does a crate come with an audio book? I am hearing impaired and wouldn't be able to use an audio book. I'd love to get this crate but I cant afford to buy things I can't useAsked by Books C., April 2020

Excellent question! In the past, we did include audiobooks in a couple of the Deluxe box editions. However, we have stopped. When you subscribe, just send us an email asking us to never include an audiobook. We'll make sure you'll get something of equal or better value to take its place.

Q: Hi, what if I love fantasy/science fiction books as well as young adult? Could I trade off and on between those categories? Asked by Aidan Z., December 2020

Universe Bound answered...December 2020

Greetings Aidan!
Thank you for your question. The truth is, young adult is not one of our categories. The Universe Bound Regular and Deluxe boxes will mainly include sci-fi/fantasy, thriller, mystery, and/or horror. The books may be adult, young adult, or new adult. We focus mostly on genre, ratings, and review instead of the age group category when selecting books. Unfortunately, tailoring a book's age group to one person is not something we can easily do with those subscription boxes. The one exception is horror. We will exchange a horror book with something -- different.
Take solace that two of the last three regular and deluxe book boxes had young adult. So, it's quite possible that regardless of the genre young adult may turn up more often...

Q: It says your sold out. When will you be taking new subscriptions?Asked by Iveila M., September 2020

Universe Bound answered...September 2020

Greetings Iveila,
Thank you for your question. We appreciate it!
When a Book box is sold out it's not because we ran out of material, it's because we want to make sure we can fulfill the subscription. We generally don't start assembling our book boxes until after the 15th. The Deluxe box in particular may have items that can't be acquired or made easily. Past boxes had special collector items or products that were made in a limited quantity and thus we had to purchase the items at an earlier date. This goes for future boxes. We are always trying to improve our boxes in many ways. Adding useful high-quality items is our priority.
Thanks again for your question.
Until then - James

I just received my second box from Universe Bound and I am SO enjoying this subscription. Lots of fun little snacks and tasty tea (with ADORABLE tiny spoons). So far I've been very excited to read the books that were sent - and I love the diversity of the characters thus far. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOX - I look forward to receiving it for weeks! This is one of the best-value boxes I've found as well as being a lot of fun.
Also, the owner was super responsive when I messaged about a slight change to my box, which I really appreciated. :) Keep up the great work!

I'm usually very sceptical of these boxes but I truly love this subscription! The items and books are very well done. I'm enjoying the fact I asked for no coffee and was listened to. Well done cant wait until the next one comes.

Universe Bound was very timely in getting me my first box and when it arrived, they had shipped it in a manner to make sure it did not get damaged. I had my first cup of the tea yesterday, and the flavors were completely unique! Would definitely recommend this box to anyone looking to add uniqueness to their collection, be it the books, tea, or candle! (the candy is just a delicious bonus that reminds me of my childhood <3 )

Super happy!
