This box has all the content of our regular Book Box but with so much more. Instead of the usual two books, a third and sometimes a fourth book is added. Extra snackage, more of our exclusive Reactive Bath Salts, and extra items.
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: Site says these ship by the 15th of each month, but I ordered on January 3rd and haven't had any info regarding shipping. When can I expect this to ship?Asked by Stacy S., February 2021
Thank you for your question. I've sent you a reply to the email you sent a few minutes before you posted this question. Actually, the site says we ship at the end of the month. Below is a direct quote from the Product Overview section.
"We ship by the end of every month. Orders placed BEFORE and ON the 15th of the month will ship after the 26th of the same month. Orders placed after the 15th of the month will ship after the 26th of the following month!"
As in your case, sometimes we run a bit past our target ship date. I do apologize for that. The reassuring news is you should have received two shipping notifications by now. One from Cratejoy and one...

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
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...
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 )
This box was so much fun! I loved everything in it! Can't wait to see what next month's box will be.
This is my first box and it was such a neat surprise with the bath set and tea set. I've always wanted to try new fancier teas and the books are really interesting!
Loved everything in the box .. all things came in perfect condition. So much care in packaging. The tea and coffee are both delicious.. & the customer service is second to none. The perfect no junk but so many goodies book box out there!!. Very pleased
I bought this for myself as a birthday present and I was so pleased! The books are interesting and all the little goodies are good quality and so fun. I will definitely be back to grab this box again!
This is the third subscription book box I’ve tried, and even though the other two were great, they weren’t quite what I was looking for. This box, on the other hand is exactly what I’ve been hoping for! I’m excited to read the books and I love all the extras and treats. The choice of beverages is an added bonus. I’m already looking forward to next month’s box! 100% would recommend! :)
This box is an amazing gift to give someone, not only can they relax and read but they can soak in the tube in the nice smelling bathbomb or the bath powder. You can also light a pretty smelling candle to go with it. The books can be anything and what I like about this company is they use other authors that are trying to get their name out there. Never fail you also get tea, coffee treats who can not enjoy all those goodies. Come see for yourselves :)
I am very pleased with my monthly box, from the details of the content to the snack. I recently started reading do to attend nursing school didn’t have time for Lea sure reading, having started reading the GEMP by J Carrell Jones I am in luv and recommend this monthly box to my coworkers and bookies luv-r every way. Once again thz for bring back reading
I wish there was some way to choose between coffee, tea or both. I'm allergic to coffee and notice that spoilers often have the same candy, soap so far. Does it change?
Greetings Julie! Thanks for the feedback. Okay, for you we will include only tea - you'll get two flavors. Staff and I were talking about re-introducing some older soap products. In fact, even though the January Box spoiler pic shows African soap it'll include our handmade "Nebula" soap. We finished making a batch of our exclusive fragrance Jovian Rose (Sweet Pea, Bergamot, Geranium, and Damascus Rose). We are also working on introducing Diffusers.
For the candy - there is a core set that'll always be included, but we do change up with adding something different.
Eclectic mix of high-quality Indie, small press, or large house books are chosen with care.
