What makes second star books special?

Second Star Books is the only YA book box focused on promoting debut authors. We are dedicated to helping you find your new favorite author by sending the best books by the newest authors on the block!  Each month, our Debut Author Launch Box includes a brand new book by a debut author, along with exclusive items from the author and publisher. You'll also get an exclusive woodwick candle, woodmark, and enamel pin to add to your collection. The books we send are sure to keep you reading straight on till morning!

fun stuff from second star books


Every box has an exclusive woodwick candle, created specifically for the featured book. Can't get enough candles? The Monthly Melt is a subscription just for candle lovers!


Our  Second Star Seasonal boxes are lovingly curated around a classic book, each with a cover custom designed each quarter by the Second Star Books team.


We can't get enough enamel pins in our lives! Each Debut Author Launch Box and Second Star Seasonal box comes with an enamel pin specially designed for that month's box.

ONE Box = ONE BOok

For every box we send out, we donate a book to a child in need. We work directly with underfunded schools and libraries, as well as with established literary charities.
