Nothing, and we mean nothing, beats book post, especially when it’s all a surprise. So really it’s no wonder that YA subscription boxes are favourites among readers and fans of bookish swag. But it can be difficult to figure out which one’s for you, and we always like to help you with such big decisions, so here’s our guide to YA bookish subscription boxes!
Our lovely friend, Daphne, launched the very first UK-based YA subscription box at the end of the last year and we think it’s wonderful! Every three months she includes one newly released YA title with 3-5 bookish goodies and author content, usually exclusively designed for Illumicrate!
We even did a sneaky unboxing of the most recent box.
Price: £29.99 and free shipping to the UK! International shipping ranges from £4.99 – £13.99.
Uppercase in a monthly box featuring a brand new, hardcover YA release with 1-2 book-related goodies, a signed bookplate and exclusive content.
Price: $23. Shipping to the US is $6 and $24 to Canada; sadly, Uppercase doesn’t ship internationally yet.
Owlcrate is possibly the most popular YA subscription box around at the moment. It’s all over our Instagram and makes us dribble a little. This box features a new YA release and a whole host of bookish goodies every month.
Price: $29.99, plus $19.99 shipping to the UK. This is a pricey one, and we haven’t splurged just yet, but oh we want to! This comes out to around £35.
The Book Drop
The Book Drop is a monthly subscription box is a little cheaper than the other US boxes, but there’s also a little less in there. You get one paperback (usually an under the radar release) and either a signed bookplate or a bookish goodie.
Price: $13 for the YA box with $26 shipping to the UK. That works out at about £28.
