The Book Worm Box Subscription Review – May 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


The Book Worm box is a newer book subscription box from Colleen Hoover. They also donate their profits to a different charity each month!


My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).


The Subscription Box: The Book Worm Box

The Cost:$39.99 plus $11.99 shipping

The Products:  This box will include 2 autographed books, one or both of them being from a bestselling author. Each box will also include book swag.

Good to Know: The Bookworm Box was built on the foundation of spreading the good, so 100% of the profit after overhead costs will be donated to a different charity each month.


This box comes with some swag goodies each month – for May it’s a pen, stress-ball book, and The Game Changer magnet.


The Master by Kresley Cole – Retail Value $15 (On Amazon for $11.40)

Filthy Beautiful Lies by Kendall Ryan – Retail Value $11.99 (On Amazon for $10.79)

One thing to mention with this box – authors donate their signed books, so there’s a lot of variation. Looking at Instagram, it looks like I received one of the more scandalous looking boxes! 😉

Ideally I would have preferred this variation – oh well!

Here are the signature pages for each book:



Verdict: At first glance, this doesn’t feel like a $50 box. I have to keep in mind though that $12 of that goes to shipping, and all the profits go to charity. If you’re looking for a unique book box that delivers signed books, this could be a good fit, but if you’re looking for a higher value book box, I wouldn’t recommend Book Worm Box at this point.

I’m still going to give it at least another month. What do you think of the Book Worm Box?

  1. Liz, could you please add this subscription to the Swap site?

  2. I love book subscriptions but this one isn’t for me. With no ability to request certain genres or at least opt out of certain genres this is too much of a gamble for me. (I despise romance style books and would be really upset to shell out $50 for a box of them.) If they added something to deal with the different genres I would look a lot more closely at the box because of its charitable aspect.

  3. I love the idea of getting signed books, but these particular selections are very far from what I’d normally read. I understand why they’d need to do variations, but it might work out better if they let people pick genres.

  4. As much as I love the idea of them donating to charity and I adore Colleen Hoover, the founder, it’s def too much money for me. And, since it’s still new, it doesn’t have enough credibility in good books (or books I actually want to read) yet. I’ll have to hold back until it’s more established.

  5. Books are such a subjective thing I do try to broaden my horizons from thriller mystery detective having said that I don’t find this is good value
