This month’s box featured another book that I previously read, but it’s also a good book, so I’m happy nonetheless.
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, below you’ll find the full video where I unbox everything and let you know my overall thoughts on it.
If you’re not up for watching the video, I’ve provided the pictures and information below.
Check out all my previous subscription box reviews.
Here is the full box with all the products:
And here are the products individually:
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella w/signed bookplate – $18.99 (Retail)/$13.40 (Amazon)
– “From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Shopaholic series comes a terrific blend of comedy, romance, and psychological recovery in a contemporary YA novel sure to inspire and entertain.
An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him.

As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.”
Out of Print Library Card Socks – $10
Exclusive Finding Audrey coffee sleeve
Paper Towns bookmarks designed by Risa Rodil
Is it worth it?
Even though this is yet another book I’ve read, I’m very happy with it. I like that Lisa’s taste in books resembles mine so far. This is my third box and I can safely say that I’ve liked each book she’s chosen so far, so I’m happy to add them to the shelves. It’s honestly to be expected that more often than not I’ll have read a book that she chooses because I’m a blogger. I don’t have a problem with that at all as long as I like the book, which thankfully, I have so far. Anyways, I’m a little disappointed with the swag this month. Last month spoiled me and I was hoping it’d be the same this month. While the coffee sleeve has significance to the book, it’s nothing special (I would’ve preferred sunglasses, if anything, since that’s also significant to the book AND it would’ve added value to the box). I do love the library socks. I’ve seen them around and always wanted a pair. As for the bookmarks, I love the design (I’m beginning to think Risa Rodil is just amazing), but they’re just plain bookmarks to me. Again, nothing special. I haven’t read Paper Towns, so that makes me it less significant to me.
With that said, I still love this subscription box so much and I’m still happy with my decision to subscribe. I pay very close attention to all the other boxes out there each month and this is the only one that’s consistently had a book that I truly like. Granted, I haven’t read most of the books I’ve seen in the other boxes, but the books in those boxes never appealed to me enough to even put them on my TBR list and considering that book subscriptions are so expensive, I’d rather play it safe and know that the curator will choose something I’ll actually like. Lisa’s track record so far has been solid and I hope she keeps it up.
