The Book- and More- Is in the Mail by Kelly Jensen, SLJ

These YA subscription services offer new titles, community, and fun extras.

The thrill of book subscription boxes is discovering titles and connecting with other readers. Curated boxes contain books that subscribers might otherwise overlook, and "Unboxing" blog posts and videos connect readers, who can communicate with one another about the boxes, and other books they love.

Here's a look at some YA-focused boxes.

With a focus on fantasy, each themed FairyLoot box includes a book plus a small selection of items such as specially made scarves, quote prints, and even a Funko POP! A recent package with a
"Whimsical Journeys" theme contained Jessica Leake's Beyond a Darkened Shore".
Cost: About $35 plus shipping. Three- and six-month prepaid subscription plans available.

LitJoy Crate
This box includes  one new release, along with 2 to 4 items. A recent box "Upon Her Throne" 
included Rebecca Ross' The Queen's Rising, an exclusive constellation scarf, a letter from the author, a bath bomb and more.
Cost: $30 plus shipping and handling 

My YA Reading Club
Just books, no extras. With a lean toward fantasy, My YA Reading Club selects 2 hardcover titles, as well as an ebook each month.
Cost: $22 plus shipping and handling

Each themed box incluldes one new hardcover, along with 3 to 5 bookish goods made from small businesses across the United States. One past box included Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood, signed exclusively for OwlCrate, along with a wall tapestry, a pouch inspired by Laini Taylor's The Daughter of  Smoke and Bone, stickers, and more. 
Cost: $30 plus shipping. Three- and six-month prepaid plans available

This subscription service focuses on black girls. The books feature black girls by black authors. Each month, a contemporary title is included, along with 3 to 5 items. A past box contained Ibi Zoboi's American Street, along with bubble bath, an enamel pin, and more.
Cost: $35 plus shipping. Three- six- and 12-month prepaid plans available.
