My First Book Haul of 2017!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-9

Random Quote of the Day: “An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth.” – Bonnie Friedman

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I am super proud of myself so far this 2017 as I have barely purchased any novels for the past 3 months. However, I was sent a few for review, won a couple via giveaways, and received some from Uppercase, so that is what I will be sharing with you all today! None of the novels today were technically “purchased” outside of my norm (subscription boxes), so that was pretty awesome (: Let’s get to it!

Uppercase Box | Nov. – Jan.

bi-weekly-wrap-up-17Random Quote of the Day: “If I stay in academia, I might end up going someplace random.” –  Lauren Willig

Hello sunshines! ☀ You may have noticed that I haven’t posted a Subscription Box Unboxing + Review for a couple of months. I’ve decided to not post monthly unboxings + reviews, but instead post them every three months. With this being said, every three months I’ll post a collective unboxing + review!

Uppercase Box | Young Adult Monthly Book Subscription BoxFrom Uppercase, every month you’ll get an amazing young adult book that you’ll absolutely love! Every book you get from Uppercase is a brand new, hardcover book that’s signed by the author or comes with a signed bookplate from the author. Every Uppercase book is always published within the last month. It is extremely uncommon for a subscriber to already have a finished copy of the book and it almost never happens.

There are two current options that you can subscribe to:

  • Book Exclusive Plan – $17/month [Brand new hardcover, YA book, signed book or bookplate, reading experience with exclusive content, & a personal hand-written note to you]
  • Expert Plan – $23/month [everything listed from the Book Exclusive Plan, except you also get 1-2 high-quality bookish items]

Random Fact of the Day: Phobatrivaphobia is fear of trivia about phobias.

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Here I am again with an Uppercase Box Unboxing + Review! It has officially been a year that I’ve been subscribed to Uppercase! Let’s get on with the unboxing + review…

Uppercase Box | Young Adult Monthly Book Subscription BoxFrom Uppercase, every month you’ll get an amazing young adult book that you’ll absolutely love!

ITEMS INCLUDED:

  • Vassa In The Night by Sarah Porter – SIGNED
  • Erg Character Sticker
  • Punk Rock Writers Journal
  • Cassette Tap Bookmarks

Oh my goodness, this month’s items were SOOOOO adorable!! I have NEVER seen Cassette Tape bookmarks before this, so I am extremely happy with those!! I’ve seen Punk Rock Writers Journals before and I really like the graphics, so that was also a plus. The journal will definitely be put to good use! 😍 As for the book, this is another one that everyone has been talking about it. I must admit, it doesn’t intrigue me completely, but I will be reading it eventually! Also, the cover ❤️

OCTOBER UPPERCASE BOX RATING: 4.5/5 STARS

NOTE: In case you guys weren’t aware, the Exclusive Content includes a special code that you can enter on their website to unlock exclusive content,videos from the author, additional backstories, and interact with other Uppercase readers. I personally have not tried this out yet just because I haven’t gotten around to actually reading a book that they’ve sent me. However, I do enjoy the idea!


And that completes my Uppercase Box Unboxing + Review! I am really happy with this month’s box, and I actually JUST got November’s a few days ago 😁 Have you seen those bookmarks before?? Have you read Vassa in the Night?? Chat with me in the comments!

*Disclaimer: Uppercase currently ships to U.S. and Canada, including APO addresses and Puerto Rico only.*

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…

Random Fact of the Day: It takes up to four hours to hard boil an ostrich egg.

Hello sunshines!🔆 I almost had a mini heart attack because I thought I skipped a month of Uppercase, but turns out I didn’t! *wipes perspiration off of forehead* Anyways, today I am back with another unboxing and review of Uppercase Box: the September edition.

Uppercase Box | Young Adult Monthly Book Subscription BoxFrom Uppercase, every month you’ll get an amazing young adult book that you’ll absolutely love! Every book you get from Uppercase is a brand new, hardcover book that’s signed by the author or comes with a signed bookplate from the author. Every Uppercase book is always published within the last month.

  • Expert Plan – $23/month [everything listed from the Book Exclusive Plan, except you also get 1-2 high-quality bookish items]

ITEMS INCLUDED:

  • The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron — SIGNED
  • The Forgetting Mini Notebook
  • “This Is How We Roll” pouch (Uppercase Exclusive)
  • “Certified Book Addict” Sticker designed by Alexis Lampley of Nerdy.Post

The Forgetting has been on everyone’s radar lately, so I’m really glad I got this one so early! The “This Is How We Roll” pouch is so adorable, and I will definitely be putting that and the Notebook into good use. I also have trouble finding places to put stickers, but I’m sure this one will find a home ☺️

Also, did anyone notice the slightly purple-ish theme going on?? 💜 I love purple, so this was also a plus! AND the cover for The Forgetting is absolutely gorgeous 😍

SEPTEMBER’S UPPERCASE BOX RATING: 4/5 STARS

NOTE: In case you guys weren’t aware, the Exclusive Content includes a special code that you can enter on their website to unlock exclusive content,videos from the author, additional backstories, and interact with other Uppercase readers. I personally have not tried this out yet just because I haven’t gotten around to actually reading a book that they’ve sent me. However, I do enjoy the idea!


And that is all for the September Uppercase Box! Uppercase has definitely been increasing in better bookish items, so I am really happy about that! After next month, I am going to have been subscribed for a year, and I’m thinking I might want to move on to a different subscription box? Let me know your thoughts!

*Disclaimer: Uppercase currently ships to U.S. and Canada, including APO addresses and Puerto Rico only.*

Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
