Have you ever wanted to join a book club? Book clubs have been around for decades. With so many choices, there’s a book club that everyone can enjoy.

They can be anything from chatting with your friends to celebrity-made lists. Book club subscriptions are a fun and simple way to choose books you’ll like. Here are five of the best subscription book clubs we found.

1. Book of the Month Club

In 1926, Book of the Month Club started in New York City. They have over 90 years of experience bringing the best books to their members. Each month, they allow members to pick one of five brand new books from new titles across multiple genres. Most months include exclusives, including early releases or debut authors. There are three subscription options to choose from (1-month, 3-month, and 12-month) with discounts for longer subscriptions. If you find it isn’t in your budget that month or you aren’t interested in any of the offered books, you can skip the month entirely. This offers the flexibility readers want in choosing their next novel.

2. OwlCrate

This book club is perfect for those who enjoy the young adult genre. They offer subscriptions that include a new YA novel, multiple book-related items, and exclusives from the authors. Each month, OwlCrate selects a new theme to make each box unique. There are three subscription options (1-month, 3-month, or 6-month) with savings for longer subscriptions. They even offer another box for children’s literature, OwlCrate Jr.

3. Once Upon a Book Club

If you love becoming part of the novel while you read, this book club is for you. Focused on bringing novels to life, Once Upon a Book Club creates each box with multiple “gifts” related to the story. These items can range from letters to pictures to small trinkets. The items are specific to the storyline, so opening them at the corresponding page number(s) is an important part of gaining the full experience. This subscription offers adult and young adult options.

4. Coffee and a Classic

You’ll want to check out this book club if you enjoy a good cup of coffee with your reading. To create a relaxed reading experience, this box comes with all the things needed for a cozy reading session. All boxes include a unique type of coffee, a classic novel, and book-themed items. The difference between the two levels of subscription (start and standard) is the amount of book-related items you get. Each month, you can personalize your subscription by choosing from three genres. Not a coffee fan? You can still enjoy this box! There’s an option to swap out the coffee for tea or hot chocolate.

5. Used Books Monthly

This subscription box gives you the opportunity to give a new home to pre-owned books. Each month, your subscription can include one, two, or four books. You can customize the selections by choosing your favorite genres when choosing your subscription. All books sent by Used Books Monthly go through quality tests to guarantee you always get a used book in fair condition. This club is a fantastic way to save money and paper by reusing books.
