What is a Book Subscription Box?
A book subscription box is a fun and convenient way to get new and exciting books delivered right to your door.
Think of it as a gift that keeps on giving each and every month!
Some book subscription boxes include only books while some also include fun, bookish items to surprise you with.
Books included in subscription boxes are typically paperbacks and may be newly released titles and/or throw back titles.
Bookish items included in a book subscription box can range from book marks, self care items, beauty items, and unique bookish items.
Seriously, what could be better than getting a new box of goodies delivered right to your door?
Once you sign up, subscription boxes are typically mailed monthly but you can skip a month or cancel at any time.
Even if you don’t want a book subscription box for yourself, they make a GREAT gift for the romance book reader in your life.

Why Would You Want a Book Subscription Box?
More aptly, why WOULDN’T you want to sign up for a romance book subscription box?!

My Favorite Romance Book Subscription Boxes
There are several romance book subscription box options to choose from, but these two are my most favorite:
What is The Bookworm Box?
The Bookworm Box was founded by New York Bestselling author, Colleen Hoover. It’s their goal to help people discover great books while giving back.
I can definitely get behind that mission!
Why I Love The Bookworm Box:
- Boxes include an autographed book! (except the digital boxes)
- All boxes include an eBook
- All profits are donated to charity – that’s pretty awesome!
- The Bookworm Box supports indie romance book authors
Not only can you enjoy romance books from some of the most popular romance authors with The Bookworm Box, but your purchase gives back as well.
So far, The Bookworm Box has given to over 400+ charities and donated over 1 million dollars- AMAZING!
Seriously, I think this is such a fantastic thing that will make you feel really good about subscribing to The Bookworm Box.
The Bookworm Box Options
The Bookworm Box offers 7 subscription box options. There are 5 versions of The Romance Bookworm Box which are recommended for readers 18.
They also offer two versions of the Young Adult Bookworm Box featuring young adult books for those 14 and over.
For those who don’t want a physical book, The Minimalist Box includes 2 eBooks and a digital author letter.
The rest of the box options include:
- one (or more) autographed book,
- 1 (or more) eBook,
- an author letter and
- bookish swag.
Cost: The Bookworm Boxes range from $9.99-$49.99 per month but prices go down if you prepay for 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions.
My Recommendation: The Swag-Tastic Bookworm Box
As they say, if you want it all, you’re going to want to sign up for the Swag-Tastic Bookworm Box! I was lucky to receive a Swag-Tastic Bookworm Box to review and I LOVED it.
The Swag-Tastic Box includes: 1 autographed book, 1 eBook, 1 author PinMate, 1 author letter, 1-2 bookish goodie items, 1 The Bookworm Box pen and author swag.
This box came beautifully presented in The Bookworm Box’s signature purple box. To be honest, half the fun was opening it to see which book title and what bookish goodies were inside.
My Swag-Tastic Box included an autographed copy of Playing With Fire by L.J. Shen. Not only was the book autographed, but it came with an exclusive Bookworm Box cover!
I’ve read and loved L.J. Shen books in the past, so I was super excited to receive her newest release. Plus, the book is SO, SO good! You’re going to want to read this one for sure. [My Review]
My other Swag-Tastic goodies included:
- a letter from L.J. Shen
- a L.J. Shen PinMate
- a bookish night light
- a bookmark
- a The Bookworm Box pen, and
- a free eBook of Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen
This PinMate is the first I’ve received and it is freakin’ cute! The bookish night light is beautiful and an added treat.
I couldn’t be happier with my Swag-Tastic box from The Bookworm Box.
I highly recommend this book subscription for its quality, the great author selection and to help support some great charities.
Recommended for: Indie romance book lovers and book lovers who want to give back.

Another favorite book subscription that I just love is Bawdy Bookworms.
If you didn’t already know, I love my romance books hot and my book boyfriends even hotter so I knew that Bawdy Bookworms was going to deliver – and boy did it!
What is Bawdy Bookworms?
Bawdy Bookworms is a subscription box that pairs romance books with erotic toys.
They offer both monthly and quarterly subscription boxes that are shipped in discreet packaging.
Bawdy Bookworms also offers a virtual book club where subscribers can log into a private forum to discuss their latest reads. Very cool!
Why I Love Bawdy Bookworms
I absolutely love the mission of Bawdy Bookworms which is twofold. They help smart women find well-written books AND they empower women to embrace their sexuality. For every woman deserves a happy ending, right?!
I also love that the books provided in their boxes include diverse romance books, and that they promote romance books from both indie and traditionally published authors.
This subscription service also goes beyond delivering books and goodies and seeks to encourage a community of romance readers who can connect, share and discuss books online.

My Recommendation: The Bawdy Bookworms Quickie Box
I highly recommend checking out the Quickie box to see if this book subscription is right for you. I was lucky enough to receive a Quickie box for review and I LOVED it!
I honestly had no idea what I received in the mail when a white box was delivered to me. But when I opened it I was pleasantly surprised!
All Bawdy Bookworms boxes are discretely shipped in white boxes so not even your neighbor will know what you’re about to open and discover.
Inside I received a copy of the book Lush Money by Angelina M. Lopez. Lopez was a new author to me and I have to say I really enjoyed her book. I am excited to now have another author I can’t wait to read more from.
Along with the book, the box also included a Hide & Play Rechargeable Lipstick Vibe erotic toy and a lip stick. This toy was the perfect pair to this book’s theme – and it makes me curious to see what other book/toy pairings they have in store for future boxes!
I think Bawdy Bookworms is such a fantastic idea for the romance reader who’s reading has inspired her own sexuality.
Couple this with an agenda to promote diverse books and to support a reading community – I love what they are doing and can’t recommend this subscription enough.
Recommended for: erotic romance book lovers and any romance reader interested in her own happy ending!
