Books Everyone Should Own: Contemporary Fiction - Annual Subscription

This subscription box from Juniper Books brings together the most powerful recent additions to literature and fiction. 

Every month you will receive one book handpicked by our curator, Elizabeth Lane. Each book will be a recent addition to the world of literary fiction, that may or may not have made The New York Times Best Sellers List, yet is one that imaginatively and effectively uses storytelling to share diverse backgrounds and experiences. Some stories may feel familiar to our own, and some will push us, providing ground for new ideas to expand and grow. 

When we fall into a story and lean into new characters and their stories, we begin to view the world from a vantage point different from our own. It is this space that holds the potential to transform; to change the way we live in the world. 

This prepaid option is perfect for gifting, or for yourself! You will be charged the full amount for your year-long subscription at checkout and will receive one book a month for the next twelve months. Would you rather pay monthly? We also have a Monthly Subscription option.
