Fantasy and YA book subscription boxes available in the UK are rare. Most cool subscription book boxes are in the US. This translates to high shipping costs. However, there are some subscriptions that are out there and have cool swag for you.

Some of the book subscription boxes that were available in the UK have disappeared. Fortunately, the ones remaining are amazing. However, to find the available subscriptions from the UK was a little bit of a pain. So, I decided to list the boxes that I discovered that tune with my geeky tastes.

I recently subscribed to the Fairy Loot. Geeky goodies accompany the star book that comes in a bag that you can later use. It costs £26 (+ shipment, so it’s like £30). Each month there’s a different theme, and books seem to be amazing. My first box will arrive at the end of February. (Subscribing was quite a quest. I had to wait quite for a long time to get in!)

The Willoughby Book Club is a solo book subscription that’s pretty amazing. You get a surprise book of the genre of your choice. It’s personalized in the sense that you have to give them information so that they can pick a cool book for you! Subscriptions range from 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. A three-month subscription costs around £30. Shipment is free inside the UK.

This is a cool subscription to give out presents, for yourself or someone else. Granted that you only get a book, but the whole point of this is discovering authors and new books. I subscribed to this one as a self-birthday present (from February to April; my Birthday is in April). I gave as many details as I could about the books I like to read, the authors I like, and I wished for them to choose books that I have no idea about.

This box is perfect for those who don’t want too many goodies but are just interested in getting books in the mailbox. It isn’t that costly, and you can have fun for a while.

My Bookish Crate seems to be similar to the Fairy Loot. However, I find that the concept is a little bit different. You also get lots of swag along with the featured book. It also has theme boxes. However, this is a bi-monthly subscription box. But, you can also get a single purchase to try out this box. It costs £28 plus shipping.

This box is good for those who don’t want to expend too much money on boxes. Bi-monthly looks good. You also get bookish goodies, so it looks like Christmas every two months.

And, finally, Illumicrate. This is a quarterly subscription box with books and swag in it. They focus on newly released books. This one also looks good. The only thing here is that if you like to get boxes in a certain time, quarterly can be a challenge. (Well, at least for me.)

This one is perfect for those who want to get bookish boxes but don’t want to do it too often. It’s not costly, and you can get surprised every now and then throughout the year.

    Oh man, I would have gone nuts for one of these subscription boxes when I was younger! At the time, pretty much lived in the library. So awesome to see these sorts of ideas especially in the geek niche. PS, thanks for leaving a comment on my page, I’m new to blogging and would love to connect with more peeps in the community. I’ve followed you on Twitter to keep in touch 🙂
