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 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 will choose for you will have scary and dark plots, not so nice protagonists that will leave you questioning the world as it is. There will be no books with happy endings coming from us!
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 out there you might have missed. We have and will include dark reads released in the 90s, 2000s, and we will even travel back in time to add an Agatha Christie 1930's books. Dark books are timeless and we believe you will be consumed by the ones that come across our boxes.
Our Boxes Include Genres Like But Not Limited To:
Southern Goth, Dark Fantasy, Psychological Thriller, Thriller, Horror, Mystery, Dark Fiction, Crime, Whodunnit, Whydunits, Gothic Fiction, Psychological Horror, Dark Romanticism, Detective Fiction.
*Rest assured that our books will always contain a dark theme, though some will be darker than others.
