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:
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton with signed bookplate and stickers – $18.99 (Retail)/$11.16 (Amazon)
– “Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mythical beasts still roam the wild and remote areas, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinn still perform their magic. For humans, it’s an unforgiving place, especially if you’re poor, orphaned, or female.
Amani Al’Hiza is all three. She’s a gifted gunslinger with perfect aim, but she can’t shoot her way out of Dustwalk, the back-country town where she’s destined to wind up wed or dead.
Then she meets Jin, a rakish foreigner, in a shooting contest, and sees him as the perfect escape route. But though she’s spent years dreaming of leaving Dustwalk, she never imagined she’d gallop away on mythical horse—or that it would take a foreign fugitive to show her the heart of the desert she thought she knew.
Rebel of the Sands reveals what happens when a dream deferred explodes—in the fires of rebellion, of romantic passion, and the all-consuming inferno of a girl finally, at long last, embracing her power.”

Is it worth it?
While I’m not a big fan of the accessories this month, I’m happy with the book. It’s actually my book club’s choice, so I’ll be diving in it real soon. I do think the earrings are cute though. I’m just not a big fan of bookplates or stickers, especially if you consider them as part of a subscription box. It just goes to waste and doesn’t add any value to the box for me. So, not the best month for me, but I’m hoping I enjoy the book.
