Book of the Month YA is a subscription box that delivers a new hardcover Young Adult (YA) book to your door every month.
Subscribers will get to choose their own book from a selection of five different titles handpicked by the Book of the Month YA team. You can expect to see a broad range of genres with a mix of both fiction and nonfiction titles.

Let’s check out my September 2019 Book of the Month YA box!
The book was shipped in a bright pink box with the Book of the Month YA logo printed in white.
A peek inside!
The book itself was shrink-wrapped to a sturdy piece of cardboard to keep it from getting damaged in transit.
The image above shows all of the title choices for September:
- Frankly in Love by David Yoon
- The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young
- Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi
- The Stars and the Blackness Between Them by Junauda Petrus
- The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
I went with Permanent Record.
I’ve never really been much of a “romance” fan, but I went with this selection because it was described as “a fast read” and “snarky”. — Sold! 😉
On paper, college dropout Pablo Rind doesn’t have a whole lot going for him. His graveyard shift at a twenty-four-hour deli in Brooklyn is a struggle. Plus, he’s up to his eyeballs in credit card debt. Never mind the state of his student loans.
Pop juggernaut Leanna Smart has enough social media followers to populate whole continents. The brand is unstoppable. She graduated from child stardom to become an international icon and her adult life is a queasy blur of private planes, step-and-repeats, aspirational hotel rooms, and strangers screaming for her just to notice them.
When Leanna and Pablo meet at 5:00 a.m. at the bodega in the dead of winter it’s absurd to think they’d be A Thing. But as they discover who they are, who they want to be, and how to defy the deafening expectations of everyone else, Lee and Pab turn to each other. Which, of course, is when things get properly complicated.
Okay, reading that description is making me second-guess my choice a bit now as it sounds like just about any other cheesy romance novel. Here’s to hoping some snarkiness comes through and saves the day (book). 😉
Also included was a no-frills “Book of the Month” bookmark. Not very exciting, but useful nonetheless.
September’s Book of the Month YA box didn’t include any extra goodies like last month’s shipment, but it still delivered on my chosen reading material. 😉 — Remember, for a limited time, you can get your first box for just $9.99 shipped with coupon code “GROW“!
