The time has come, we are so excited to share with you our plans for our July box! We’ve already announced that our July box will have TWO BRILLIANT FEATURED READS but now it’s time to fill you in on all the juicy details about this bumper summer box.
Our theme for July is like no theme we’ve ever done before and is set to be our most unashamedly bookish box yet. This month we’ll be celebrating books of all genres, by an amazing range of talented writers, who all have one thing in common…
Alongside the two featured reads, there’ll be an exciting bonus dose of exclusive bookish content, an extra special online book group with two authors and surprises galore.

Forget the Great British Bake-Off, this July we bring you The Great British Book-Off, our July theme is I ♥ UK YA and will celebrate the bright young voices of Britain’s YA writers.
Here at Book Box Club, we love YA from all around the world, but we feel like there are so many amazing hidden gems in UK YA that deserve a spot in the limelight. The UK YA book scene is positively brimming over with imagination, wit, originality and diversity, just waiting to be discovered by more unashamedly bookish people.
With that in mind, we are excited to share with you all of the news on our jam-packed July box…
With so many brilliant, hot-off-the-press UK YA titles to pick from we couldn’t resist treating all of our members to two absolutely awesome, very different featured reads this July.
Featured book no.1 is the perfect summer read! Prepare for a whirlwind of sun-soaked parties, flirtatious games and glitzy bohemian capers aplenty, all set against the backdrop of rural Italy. This brand-new, beautifully-designed, YA paperback is a prequel to a much-loved tale by Britain’s greatest bard and is guaranteed to whisk you away to summery reading heaven!
Book 1 will be accompanied by a gorgeous special edition book-plate, signed by the author.
Featured read no.2 is the ultimate twisty psychological thriller. This uber-contemporary tale about the power and dangers of social media is one of the most gripping YA reads we’ve devoured this year. With a tricksy dual narrative, a brilliantly imagined new social app, an explosive hostage situation and a celebrity scandal, this brand-new YA paperback will have you on the edge of your seat/sunlounger!
Book 2 will be signed by the author.
There will be Goodies!:
In addition to our two brilliant featured reads, our Book Box Club members will be treated to a bumper box with goodies that celebrate some of the UK’s finest YA fiction and the joys of being unashamedly bookish!
Plus, this July we’ve teamed up with our publisher buddies to create our UK YA Summer Reading ZINE! This exclusive digital publication will be available to Book Box Club AND Purely Books subscribers and will include letters from our featured authors exclusive author Q&As, samplers from incredible YA books, and reading recommendations galore.
