Oh, man. This has been one of my favorite book boxes since I signed up for a variety of them a few months ago. It breaks my heart a little because I just canceled this one for now. It’s almost like they’re trying to draw me back in!
I feel a little bad, too, because The Book Drop is an amazing indie subscription box put together by a local indie bookstore Bethany Beach Books. I always want to support indies, but I just didn’t feel like I was getting my money’s worth.
The August YA box included:
- Paperback of The Darkest Lie by Pintip Dunn
- Bookmarks for two of Pintip Dunn’s books – The Darkest Lie and Forget Tomorrow
- A signed bookplate
- Exclusive sneak peak teasers for Beware That Girl by Teresa Toten and And I Darken by Kiersten White
Have you read The Darkest Lie by Pintip Dunn? This is definitely one book that I have not even heard anyone mention, so I’m a little intrigued by it. I like mysteries every once in awhile.
With all the drama that’s been surrounding the Uppercase and Owlcrate boxes having the same book for the last two months – I am so glad that I get another subscription box by a local indie bookstore (seriously – consider checking out The Book Drop / Bethany Beach Books).
Not only do they include titles that are somewhat older and not as popular now, but from my experience in the last few months that I have been getting the box, they’re mostly contemporary. Which is something I don’t really have on my shelves much anymore.
The August YA box included:
- Paperback of We Are All Made of Molecules by Susin Nielsen
- Wish by Joseph Monninger
This is the first month that I’ve received where they have included two books instead of one book and a bookish “goodie.” When I read the notes included, I was immediately touched.
Wish was specifically picked by Amanda because of personal experience with a family member dealing with cystic fibrosis, which makes this month’s – well, next month’s – box so personal and filled with love. Reading the synopsis, I have a feeling that I will somehow end up feeling all types of feels while reading this. I’ll go in prepared with tissues, that’s for sure.
For more information on cystic fibrosis – please consider going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website.
Today’s bookmail brought me a couple books from a buddy swap I’m involved with, and I also got my Book Drop subscription box for July.
I’ve been reading all the summer related books that I own for a challenge this summer, but the thing is: I’m not entirely crazy about summer-ish themes (I’m a winter girl, through and through) so I was surprised to get this one. The storyline does sound interesting, though, so definitely going to give it a try.
The July YA box included:
- Paperback of Wanderlost by Jen Malone
- A Wanderlost bookmark
- Bookplate for Wanderlost signed by Jen Malone
Today’s bookmail brought me my first ever Book Drop subscription box. The Book Drop is based out of Bethany Beach, DE and is part of the indie bookstore Bethany Beach Books, which is relatively local to me. I love supporting local independent stores, and what better than an indie bookstore? I was thoroughly impressed! 🙂
The June YA box included:
- Paperback of More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
- A Lateo Institute – referenced in the book – pamphlet signed by the author
- An uncorrected proof excerpt copy of Sophia Kinsella’s Finding Audrey
- Bookplate for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
