About The Book Drop subscription box:
This simple, yet thoughtful, subscription box is put together and sent out by the staff of independently owned book store Bethany Beach Books.  Each month a book is handpicked to be included in the box matching it's genre.  This allows anyone who subscribes to receive a new read that they may not have heard of otherwise.  The price isn't the main goal - "It's about helping people discover fantastic read and putting marvelous books into the hands of readers..."

What I received:

After contacting the team at Bethany Beach Books, I was lucky enough to receive the May 2016 subscription box.

The box I chose was: The Ernest

Inside I found:
- The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye
- A short note from Amanda Zirn, the creator of The Book Drop.
- A bookmark that reads "I love the Earth! Recycle"
- May 2016 Indie Next List booklet

I chose the Ernest box because I enjoy a good mystery, thriller from time to time.  The book itself can be purchased via Amazon at the price of $16.00 ($10.00 Prime).  However, I have to agree with the Bethany Beach Books team- it's not about the price.  This book is something that I believe I'm going to LOVE!  It's right up my alley & something that I would not have known about if it weren't for the The Book Drop subscription box.  The bookmark & personal note from Amanda Zirn are also lovely touches to the box.

My Rating:
I gave the rating of 5 Hot Lips because this 
bookish subscription box has 
such thoughtfulness & that makes 
it worth every penny.
