Frequently Asked Questions
What is Down The Rabbit Hole Book Box?
We are a curated book subscription service that provides lovers of dark books with an exclusive reading experience. Once a month we will surprise you with a dark book and a combination of 4-6 bookish themed gifts and items mentioned in the book. Each month we release a theme related to that month's book and visual clues.
What is considered a "Dark Read”?
At Down The Rabbit Hole we define dark books as a book without a happy ending. The books we select are typically and often disturbing and unsettling. Our books often touch on topics of murder, stalking, suicide and violence. The books we select for our boxes are thoroughly vetted and researched before selection. Are books have featured a group of scholars who have killed their friend, a son who was accused of massacuring his whole family, and five sisters who commit suicide ( and many more !) rest assured that there are no books with happy endings coming from us. Please note that some books are darker than others.
What types of books will you send each month?
Many other book boxes often feature newly released books but we pride ourselves on finding the darkest reads ever released and that you might have missed. We have included novels in that past from the 90s, 2000s and even as back as the 1930s (Were Agatha Christie Fans !). Dark books and their lessons are timeless and we belive everyone deserves a chance to read them all !
