I was so excited when my Uppercase box came in the mail this week. I’m currently away, so I knew I was going to be spoiled through social media about what was inside. Luckily, it was Teresa from Readers Live a Thousand Lives who spoiled me so I don’t care. Either way, I’m in love with this month’s box. The book is amazing and they really upped the scale in terms of swag this month. Happy subscriber over here!
In case you didn’t know, Uppercase Box is a monthly subscription box for readers featuring one newly released Young Adult book and a few book-related goodies.

So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi’s wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.
She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.”

Is it worth it?
I am thrilled with this month’s box. I read TW&TD recently and I loved it so even though I have read it, I’m happy that I now have a finished copy to add to my shelves. I was just thinking to myself a few days before I got the box that I wanted to get the finished copy, so yay! I also loved that they included so much swag with this box, which if you don’t know, was one of the main reasons why I didn’t fully love this service when I was doing my research. I saw the scarf being sent around to bloggers and such from the publisher and I like that Uppercase had their own made and sent to subscribers. That’s definitely a different kind of swag. I also love the Bookiemoji stuff, as they have cute designs. I can always use another tote bag. This box knocked it out of the park this month and I am so happy I made the decision to give them a try. I can’t wait for next month’s box!
