Wetherby, GB
At Rather Be Reading we are passionate about the literary world and the influence it can have on our wellbeing, aspirations and our personal experiences. When so much of literature focuses on boys and men going on marvellous adventures, at Rather Be Reading we want to shine the spotlight on the girls and women doing it too!
We are passionate about sourcing books from across different genres that tell the stories of strong female characters who are in charge of their own destiny! Additionally we are keen to source books feature BAME and LGBT+ characters to represent everyone's feminist journey.
Each one of our boxes comes with ethically sourced gifts and treats to allow the recipient to fully relax with a great read. The perfect gift for some self-care.

Crime and Mystery Book Subscription Box, from $15.83
Crime and Mystery Book Subscription Box

It is fair to say that women in the crime and mystery genre of fiction have not always been represented the best. Often reduced to brutalised victims, voiceless bodies, and convenient lenses through which the complex, tormented male protagonist can be viewed. That is why here at Rather Be Reading we have a subscription box dedicated to shining the spotlight on some of the amazing female protagonists this genre has to offer. Each month you will receive a fantastic book as well as a gift and treat so you can truly enjoy some you time while you ponder 'who did it'. Inside this box you will find: - A novel with a fierce female protagonist at the centre of the story - A treat to unwind with (eg. bath salts, organic chocolate, beauty face mask) - A drink to relax with (eg. an individually wrapped herbal tea, coffee or hot chocolate spoon) - Mindfulness colouring bookmark
