Books of a Feather: A Monthly Book Subscription from Phoenix Books

Books of a Feather is a book subscription service from Phoenix Books. Each month, our adult book buyer Laurel hand-selects a new hardcover fiction title, and we ship it directly to your door. It’s the perfect gift for the readers in your life (or for yourself!). You may cancel your subscription at any time. Please place your order by the first Tuesday of the month to receive that month’s book. Store pick-up is not available for Books of a Feather.

If you’ve been to the store or browsed Laurel’s picks on the website, you know she favors literary fiction where complex characters find themselves at a crossroads–the only way out is through, and the plot picks up when even the protagonist can’t predict their next move. Some of Laurel’s recent favorites include The Last Animal, Unlikely Animals, and The Dog of the North. What can we say–animal titles are trendy right now. Laurel also wants you to know that she was recommending Trust by Hernan Diaz way before it won the Pulitzer Prize.
