Every month, we create two story summaries for you to choose from in our members’ area. The title of your book will remain a surprise until you receive it in the post.
New book choices go live on the 25th of each month. We’ll update you in our monthly newsletter so keep an eye on your inbox.
If you subscribe mid-month, we’ll send out your first book within a few days of ordering.
New discussions go live on the 25th of each month – they can be found when you log in to the members’ area.
Rare Birds Book Club is here to help you break out of your comfort zone and discover books you’d never otherwise have picked up for yourself. We curate our book club picks very carefully to make sure we're bringing you amazing books and provide enough information with each secret blurb so you can select the one you're most in the mood for that month.
Our subscription books are recently published to avoid you receiving a book that’s already on your bookshelf. If you do own the book this month, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll arrange a swap.
Subscriptions are dispatched the first week of each calendar month and should arrive by the 10th for UK members.
Yes! Your book subscription will fit through the letterbox.
For our UK subscribers delivery is free. For bookstore purchases, postage will be added at checkout.
Unfortunately at the moment we are only offering postage within the UK but hope to be offering international shipping again soon.
Definitely not! Rare Birds is here to champion great fiction written by women. But as much as all our books happen to be penned by kick-ass female authors, we choose books that can (and should) be enjoyed by everyone.
