The Jane

We're heading to China at the turn of the 20th century in our May book. This is the story of friendship, heartbreak, murder, and an orphan's search  for her mother. The author's writing is absolutely gorgeous and the  characters are simple, layered, and complex all at the same time. This enchanting and unforgettable novel will be one you'll beg someone else to read simply so you can discuss it with them. *Sign up by April 10th to receive our May book!* 

The Ernest

Our May book is a gripping, suspenseful novel with a twist so sharp it may  just give you whiplash! This is a satisfying thriller that is  complicated enough to stump even the most well-read mystery readers but  not far-fetched enough that it seems unrealistic. Many readers have said that the narrator is one of the most interesting narrators they've read  in a long time!  *Sign up by April 10th to receive our May book!*

Young Adult

May '17: This quirky read is strange, fun, hilarious, and will keep you quickly turning the pages. From senior prom to girlfriends and their exes, first hangovers, a love  triangle, and a funeral, this is an unforgettable, wild romp of a debut novel. What's even better is the author just recently published the sequel so if you love this book as much as we did, you can read on!  *Sign up by April 10th to receive our May book!*

Children 8-12

May '17: A classic fantasy and an epic quest, this is an action-adventure tale  full of friendship, loyalty, and courage. Readers will have fun solving  riddles and be on the edge of their seat as the story takes them on many  travels. This book is reminiscent of the "Redwall" series that we all loved so much!  *Sign up by April 10th to receive our May book!*  

What is The Book Drop?

The Book Drop is a subscription box lovingly created & run by a little independent bookstore at the beach.   

Each month we will pick one of our favorite new reads that you may not have discovered otherwise. Our mission is to spread the love of reading by exposing people to really amazing books. We all have busy  lives and unless you are surrounded by books all day (like us lucky  folk), it's a bit overwhelming to pick out one REALLY good book when  there are so many options. That's what we are here for... to pick out  the best of the best and mail them your way, to be dropped on your  doorstep or mailbox.

We understand that you can get a better deal on that site-that-shall-not-be-named, but this box isn't about getting the cheapest price, it's about  having a small independent bookstore hand-select the perfect book for  your subscription box and sending it your way once a month. It's about helping people discover fantastic reads and putting marvelous books into the hands of readers, books they probably would never have discovered otherwise. If  you're looking for the cheapest box or the cheapest book, then this box  isn't for you... we don't deal in cheap, we deal in fantastic, fabulous, & marvelous books.           

How It Works

1. Set your preferences

Decide which box is right for you & then decide how long you want your initial subscription to be. You can switch from box-to-box between months in the event you want to mix it up a bit!

2. We pack your box

We'll start packing your box around the 20th of the month. We'll even send you an email with tracking information when we start the packing process!

What readers are saying about The Book Drop

"I feel like the value in this box comes from fabulous customer service and thoughtful curation that includes a signed bookplate and book swag. I think the children’s box would make a fantastic gift for a young reader, especially since it is only $9.00 a month!"
