Subscription boxes are all the rage right now, especially because people love getting surprises in the mail. There are subscription boxes for everything you could think of, including jewelry, candles, lotion, snacks, stationery, and more. One of the most exciting sides of subscription boxes, and a growing industry, is book subscription boxes. That’s right, a surprise book and book related goodies delivered to your doorstep every month. What more could a voracious reader ask for? Here are some book subscription boxes for you to try in 2017, sampling from all different genres.

1) Owlcrate

If you love young adult novels and bookish goodies, consider giving Owlcrate a try. Every month has a “theme” and past themes have included: Running Away with the Cirus, EPIC, Wonderland, Once Upon a Dream, and Fast Time at YA High. Previous books have included PS I Like You by Kasie West, Heartless by Marissa Meyer, Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake, and previously included items have included Funko pops, jewelry, coasters, and candles.

2) Book of the Month Club

If you love books, but don’t necessarily have a need for the goodies that come along with many boxes, consider Book of the Month Club. It’s cheaper than many subscription boxes and gives you a little more choice in the selection process. Every month, you choose between five books to be your “book of the month” and it appears on your doorstep days later. Past selections have included The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld, The Wonder by Emma Donoghue, and The Wangs vs The World by Jade Chang. Every book comes with a special bookmark giving insight into why it was chosen for that month.

3) Joyful Devotion

If you’re looking for a book box to help you connect on a deeper level with God and connect you to other women on the same journey, check out Joyful Devotion, a monthly box for Christian women who are looking for something spiritual to show up on their doorstep each month. Each month’s box features an assortment of things, but the most recent box featured The Woen of Easter by Liz Curits Higgs, a verse door hanger (Joshua 24:15) , a highlighter/study pen combo, earrings, and scripture cards.

4) Once Upon a Book Club

A lot of book boxes come with a book and some related items, but Once Upon a Book Club takes it to a whole new level. Each item is individually wrapped and labeled with a page number. You can’t open it until you get to that page in your book. Then, you unwrap it and it’s a gift associated with that page. It’s great, unless you never finish books, but I have faith in you. They specialize in women’s fiction, historical fiction, and contemporary fiction but they just recently started offering a young adult box.

5) My Thrill Club

If you’re looking for a thrill, and a good deal, check out My Thrill Club. Every month they send you TWO books and a DVD from your chosen category. The categories available include Crime & Mystery, Thriller & Espionage, and Horror. There is something for everyone. Whether you’re a lifelong courtroom thriller reader or just looking to try something new, this is the box for you.

6) Sparkle Hustle Grow

There are a ton of book boxes aimed at readers, but what about readers who are also female entrepreneurs? This is the book box for you! Each box contains 4-6 items to help you grow as a business owner and leader. One example box in the past contained #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, a cell phone video kit, and an online training in special business skills. Other items have included adorable office supplies and journals, body butter, and jewelry that will make you look like a boss babe.
