No. 1

Our monthly book subscription box has everything an introvert needs for the perfect night in:


We have 40+ novels in a variety of genres to choose from. Prefer a surprise? We'll be happy to choose a novel for you, based on your genres. We'll also send along a cute metal bookmark.

Each set has matching or complementary fragrances all named with a fun introverted theme each month. Think "Love Me Enough To Leave Me Alone" or "I Came. I Saw. I Left Early."

Expect chocolate, delicious baked goods, caramel corn, and more, plus a serving of coffee, tea or cocoa.

No. 2

Our monthly books are the best kind because – drumroll please – you get to pick them! Each month, you’ll get to select from our catalogue of new novels.

Keep an eye out for an email from us to let you know when it's time to choose your book! We’ll bet that’s one communiqué you’ll be happy to receive.

No. 3

If we have to break up, then we prefer to do it over text. Just kidding – you can cancel your subscription by accessing your account on our website and follow the on-screen instructions. If you have signed up for a multi month commitment plan you will still be charged for--and receive--the remaining boxes if you cancel before the end of your commitment term. 
P.S. We’ll miss you.

No. 4

Yes, you can – we want you to be happy – but you'll need to act fast. Once we ship your box, it will be too late to give you a refund for that box. We send you pre-renewal notifications so there are no surprises as to when your next box will ship, so be sure to cancel before you next renewal or ship date.

No. 5

Yes, we’ll send you emails reminding you of when your subscription is set to renew and also when your box is ready to be shipped out.

No. 6

We ship our monthly books and retreat kits all around the US, including Alaska, Hawaii, and military bases. We also ship to Canada.

No. 7

Our monthly boxes are the best gifts for book lovers for birthdays, holidays, and any day. Plus, because Introverts Retreat Box is a little slice of spa heaven delivered each month, our boxes make great gift boxes for women on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, her birthday – shoot... really any occasion or just to say, “I see you, I love you, now go enjoy some time away.” So we offer gift subscriptions for one box or 3, 6 or 12 months.

No. 8

We include sweet, artisan snacks in our monthly book + retreat boxes. We love to send chocolate, but only from October through May. The rest of year's treats may not be chocolaty - but still are delicious. We can accommodate dietary concerns and you can let us know what you need to avoid during checkout.

No. 9

Because our boxes contain consumable items, we cannot accept returns. However, we’re happy to replace a book that you don’t like – that’s our Best Book Promise – and we’ll also replace any damaged items. If there's anything you don't like in the box, consider using it as a gift for someone you like (or don’t!).

No. 10

You can find your account info on  

The refund process for any unwanted prepaid boxes is a little different because Cratejoy charges fees that we can't refund once any boxes are shipped. (Yeah, it's complicated, but we'll do our best to help you out.)

Remember where you are, honey. This is Introverts Retreat Box. We’re introverts, so all phone calls go straight to voicemail. Email is the best (and only) way to reach us. Send us a lovely message at

We think it’s because writers create the world they want to see — one without constant, awkward social interaction.
Subscribe to our monthly subscription box for books and experience a relaxing retreat from social events, awkward parties, and dreaded small talk, so you can immerse yourself in a world away.

Have you ever noticed that books don’t have forced small talk?
