Yay for another book I (partially) haven’t read yet!
Uppercase Box is a monthly subscription box for readers featuring one newly released Young Adult book and a few book-related goodies. It costs $23 plus $6 shipping (US).
Check out last month’s Uppercase box selection and my thoughts on it.
Here is the full box with all the bookish goodies:
And here are the products individually:
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman w/signed bookplate & bookmark – $17.99 (Retail)/$10.09 (Amazon)
– “When Kate Thompson’s father is killed by the notorious Rose Riders for a mysterious journal that reveals the secret location of a gold mine, the eighteen-year-old disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers and justice. What she finds are devious strangers, dust storms, and a pair of brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, she gets closer to the truth about herself and must decide if there’s room for love in a heart so full of hate.
In the spirit of True Grit, the cutthroat days of the Wild West come to life for a new generation. “
Uppercase original TBR list notepad (designed by Risa Rodil)
– “Because this is an exclusive, there’s no set price for it.”
Juniper & Ivy Designs: Harry Potter Golden Snitch earrings – $14
– “These awesome Harry Potter Golden Snitch earrings are made from real Maple wood that is sustainably sourced from the USA. They have a nice deep etching that provides great contrast. The snitch is hand painted with 18kt gold paint.
The earrings are made with Titanium posts, they are hypoallergenic and nickel free. They will be carefully packaged on a brown card in a jewelry. Great for gift giving!”
Is it worth it?
I actually got this book for review and only recently started it, so I’m only a couple chapters in. That means I haven’t actually read it yet, so that’s good. It’s starting out kind of iffy because it’s my first Western and the writing is weird so I don’t know how I feel about it yet. It’s getting good reviews, so I’m holding off my judgement until I get further in. I have faith in Lisa’s recommendations though. I’ve never been a fan of bookplates as I like my books signed directly in the book, but it’s nice to know that Lisa includes this with all her books for those who want it. I am in love with the swag she put in the box this month. That TBR list notepad is so cute and goes perfectly with the cute notebook from the May box. Also, I’m totally a sucker for all things Harry Potter, and you know I love that fandom jewelry, so those snitch earrings are perfect. The retail value is fitting with the price of the subscription this month, as it usually tends to do, so that’s always a plus. This month was definitely a win for me and I’m one happy subscriber.
