I discovered the awesome-ness that is book subscription boxes a few months ago when I saw an ad for OwlCrate, and it had an owl – since I love owls and all – I thought I’d try it.
Ultimately, I didn’t think OwlCrate was worth it for me since I’m really not big on swag. But I still liked the idea of book subscriptions, so I signed up for several other book subscription boxes: Bookcase.Club, Uppercase Box, and The Book Drop.
Each box is a young adult box, since that is primary what I read. Each box has its perks: Bookcase.Club donates books to those less fortunate for every subscriber they have, Uppercase Box sends newly released titles, and Book Drop is a local indie bookstore.
I decided to give each subscription at least two months before I gave my verdict on each one. However, I think I have made my mind up.
There’s something about Bookcase.Club that I don’t like. I received my second box today and wasn’t impressed. A part of me thinks it’s because they’re sending mostly beachy/summer reads and I’m not really into summer-ish books. Also, they send titles that are not exactly old but not really new either (2014). I think what I might end up doing is putting a halt on my subscription and pick up again in the fall/winter, and give it another try.
Any subscription boxes that you subscribe to that I should look into?
