We live and breathe subscription boxes here at MSA, and we know many of our readers do too. This January, we surveyed YOU for your favorite boxes across several categories, and we’re happy to finally be able to share the results!
Read on to see which 10 boxes you voted for topped the charts in the “Best Book Box” category – and see who we’re watching in 2017 at the end of the list, too.
These boxes include all genres: new fiction, young adult or YA, science fiction, fantasty, and even action thrillers! Some boxes keep it pretty straightforward and only send a curated book each month; others include additional goodies like snacks, or even accessories that go along with the books plot! Read on to find a recommended monthly book club that is right for you.

MSA’s Book Box to Watch in 2017
10: OwlCrate Jr, $27.99/month + shipping
OwlCrate just recently launched a new book subscription for ages 8-12, OwlCrate Jr! Each box will contain “a brand new book, along with a bundle of unique items that are both exciting and educational.” Subscription deliveries will start in March 2017.
OwlCrate has been a long-time favorite with MSA readers, so we’re excited to see how this box shapes up for the tween age range — and we’re super nostalgic thinking about how awesome our middle school years would have been with a Babysitters Club or Roald Dahl or Goosebumps subscription box!=
