Book Box Guesses: May 2020

It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed.

If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post! If you think I’m wrong, please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.

Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.

I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior lately and you don’t want to get caught up in it.

The Middle Grade Book Subscription Box Round Up

If you’ve found this post helpful, please consider giving me a follow. Instagram | Facebook

My YA Book Subscription Box Round Up has been wildly successful so I’ve decided to help out the younger readers out there. As a Youth Services “Librarian,” I read lots of juvenile and middle grade fiction. For those not familiar with the term, Middle Grade describes tweens or kids ages 9-12 years old. These boxes are designed with those readers in mind.

This list will be continually updated so feel free to check back. If I’m missing a box, please let me know!

This article was started with the information I found online through unboxings, comments on social media, and information shared with me as well as my personal experiences. *Indicates summarized information (and opinions) from other people who have purchased the box in question.

Yes, it is true that some of the “good” and the “bad” may just be a one-time fluke. You might have subscribed to the box with no problems but other people had issues and problems worth bringing to attention. As with any purchase, do your own research. You can make your decisions about what works best for you. This article is simply meant as guide that gives information on all one one page to review.
