Best Book Subscription Boxes for 2022!

Calling all bookworms! I have a fun post just for you! We love books here at the Pink Envelope, and we really love subscription boxes, so today I've got a list of what I think are some of the best book subscription boxes available right now. Earlier this year we put together a whole kid's book subscription box haul and knew it was time to share our favorites for adult readers!

My criteria for this list of Best Book Subscription Boxes was that each box is:

  • Unique – often featuring lesser-known authors
  • A fantastic value!
  • Delivered monthly

We’re moving into fall, kids are going back to school, and a lot of us have an opportunity to kind of re-invent who we were through the summer. We can reclaim all the schedules that were lost through summer, we are stepping into more schedules, more routine, and more accountability. I read all throughout the summer (perhaps a little too much) and I definitely want to keep reading as we head into fall, but with more structure. Boxes like these are perfect ways to add some structure to your reading!

Thanks for reading about our Best Book Subscription Boxes.

1. Down the Rabbit Hole Book Box

Number one on my list of best book subscription boxes is the Down the Rabbit Hole Book Box! This monthly interactive box is for fans of dark books. Do you love psychological thrillers, horror, or gore? Then this is the perfect box for you! Each box includes a hardcover or paperback dark book, a brochure with important details, a bookmark, and sometimes a music playlist/something to sip on/cookie or treat. Creating an even more immersive experience, Down the Rabbit Hole includes a selection of items mentioned or connected to the book, or a bookish item! They feature books as old as Agatha Christie 1932 and as recent as 2021.

  • Genres: Dark
  • Down the Rabbit Hole Book Box Price: $49.99
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Down the Rabbit Hole Book Box Coupon Code: PINK15 for 15% off

2. Introverts Retreat

Friends, this one is so cute!! Introverts Retreat is a monthly book box designed just for introverts. Each box features a new novel of your choice, a sweet treat, a yummy candle, luxurious handmade soap, and hand-blended bath salt soak all with an introverted theme such as “Love Me Enough To Leave Me Alone” or “The Best Time To Call Me Is Don't.” Everything is really nice quality and I think this box is an amazing value. I couldn't create a best book subscription boxes list without including this one! This would also make a wonderful gift for your favorite introvert!

  • Genres: Pick from a variety of fiction
  • Introverts Retreat Price: $39.00
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Introverts Retreat Coupon Code: TPE10 for 10% off the first purchase

3. Owl Post Books – Young Adult Box

Yes, I'm including a young adult box here. You know, sometimes is really fun to escape with a book void of any real-life problems and filled with adventure. Young-adult fiction usually fits that perfectly! This box from Owl Post Books includes three brand new YA books that any fantasy lovers ages 14 and up will enjoy! The Imagination Mini includes one new book in a colorful mailer each month. 

  • Genre: Fantasy Fiction
  • Owl Post Books – YA Price: $29.99
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Owl Post Books – YA Coupon Code: PINKENVELOPE for 15% off

4. Caffeine and Legends

Caffeine and Legends is a woman-owned & operated, monthly book subscription box. As implied by the name, each box features a book and something to sip while you read! It's not just coffee though; you can choose coffee, tea, drinking chocolate, or a variety of the three when you set up your subscription! Sustainability is a big part of their company (the ‘peanuts' dissolve in water, and the tape is recyclable). 1% of every sale is donated to “1% for the Planet”. Their mission with this box is to support lesser-known authors and small businesses across the US. Caffeine and Legends pride themselves on picking books for adult readers and items that are exciting for all genders!

  • Genre: Fantasy & Science Fiction
  • Caffeine and Legends Price: Multiple box options – starting at $38.99
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Caffeine and Legends Coupon Code: TPE10 for 10% off

5. Once Upon a Book Club

Once Upon a Book Club is a monthly subscription box that brings books to LIFE! Each month, subscribers receive a newly released novel and wrapped gifts labeled with page numbers. As they read the featured book, they are prompted to only open the gifts when they reach the specified page number! With great book selections, this is a super fun, fully-immersive addition to our list of best book subscription boxes for 2022

  • Genre: A wide variety of fiction
  • Once Upon a Book Club Price: $49.99
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Once Upon a Book Club Coupon Code: TPE for 10% off your first box

6. Nerdy Book Box

Nerdy Book Box was founded on the idea of supporting small authors. While most other book boxes cater to bigger writers; they are here for the smaller niche of folks that may still be growing their book and brand. They are all about bringing you beautiful worlds, characters, and stories from the minds of brilliant authors!

  • Genre: Indie Authors
  • Nerdy Book Box Price: $45
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Nerdy Book Box Coupon Code: TPE10 for 10% off

And Those are my Favorite Book Subscription Boxes for 2022!
