Introducing our new Mystery Books subscription. Building upon the great success of our standalone Mystery Books, our subscription service offers great value. See what it's all about below!

Mystery Book

Each month, choose from a curated selection of 5  Mystery Books and have it delivered to your door. Try something new and expand your tastes or go for a tried and tested genre.

Pen Pal

Each member will be assigned a Pen Pal, to whom you can write about your book, life and everything in between. Just use the enclosed note card, and send it back to us. See below.

Gift Box

Each book arrives at your door in our gorgeous Gift Box, which is usually £2.99. Enjoy the little treat of opening up a carefully prepared parcel, just for you, each month.


Be the first to get your hands on each design of our bookmarks, before the general public. Featuring a quote by a female author, they are the perfect book companion.

Pen Pal

Every subscriber will have one of the How Novel team as their own, personal Pen Pal to whom they can write each month to discuss the Mystery Book they have received, life and everything in between.

Every box will feature a handwritten note from your personal Pen Pal. Enclosed will be a blank copy of one of our gorgeous note cards. All you need to do is apply the relevant postage and send it back to us. Alternatively, you can email it direct to your Pen Pal who will remain the same for the duration of your subscription. Your Pen Pal will respond to your note with a bespoke reply the following month, allowing you to then continue the conversation.

We are champions of the written word and do not want to see the art form of letter writing die out. Help us keep this vital form of communication going and have a little fun along the way.
