I signed up for Yureka Books after I saw a Bookstagram account’s Unboxing.
What is Yureka Books?
It’s basically a custom box designed around your reading preferences.
You fill out a short survey about your reading tastes. You choose the genres you like and you can even share your Goodreads shelves and they handpick books for you.
Each month, once you’re a subscriber, you can opt into more books for decent prices to be added to your box as extras. I already owned the ones I could have picked, but there were some great picks.
You can choose an all paperback box for a low price, add in some hardcovers, or go with more hardcovers if you’re looking for newer releases. I love how customizable the options were. There was an option for everyone.
Side Note: You can get more than just YA books with this box! There are tons of great subscription boxes, but the few that are books exclusively typically stick to YA. So I love that this branches out more if you so choose.
Despite it being a handpicked box, I wasn’t expecting the personal touch with the letter and the packaging. It was very cool and I loved how little packing material there was. It’s nice to see companies that have a cute look without going overboard with packaging.
I was super excited to open this.
So what came in my September box?
- Winterspell by Claire Legrand – a Nutcracker retelling
- What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick – a cute contemporary
- Two Ex-Libris book plates
- A magnetic mustache bookmark
- A personalized letter from Yureka Books!
I might stay signed up for this because it only cost me $15 and I would have bought these books if I saw them for sale in a store and probably spend more than that if I shopped for myself. I really liked both of the authors and I haven’t read either of these books. I’m very happy with my box.
