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!

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.

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.

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!

Random Fact of the Day: If your skin is laid flat it will cover an area of 18 square feet.

Hello sunshines — it’s almost Friday!! 🙂 Last month I received the August Uppercase Box, so that is what I will be sharing with you all today!

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]

ITEMS INCLUDED:

  • P.S. I Like You by Kasie West – SIGNED
  • P.S. I Like You quote print – “Words Brought Us Together”
  • “Once Upon A Time” Necklace  (UPPERCASE EXCLUSIVE)
  • Bookish Thoughts Notepad designed by Simini Blocker  (UPPERCASE EXCLUSIVE)

This month’s book of choice was actually unexpected! I don’t follow-up on new releases strictly, but usually I have SOME sort of clue when it comes to guessing what novel will be in each month’s bag. P.S. I Like You is a contemporary, so I was VERY happy to have received this one. Lately, they have been featuring Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels (which I am not complaining about), but we all know I’m not my biggest Sci-Fi/Fantasy fan.

I love, love, LOVE bookish jewelry so that’s really what made August’s Uppercase. The notepad will come in GREAT use, and as for the quote print, it will be added to my collection!

AUGUST’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!


The August Uppercase Box has definitely been one of the better month’s compared to the previous months, so I am very grateful for that. The day Uppercase includes candles, bookmarks/keychains, and bookish jewelry in the same bag is the day in which they will have fully impressed me. But until then, the wait continues!! My birthday is coming up at the end of this month, so I don’t know if I should change up my subscriptions…What do you guys think? All feedback is welcomed! 🙂

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

Random Fact of the Day: Gardening is said to be one of the best exercises for maintaining healthy bones.

Hello sunshines! I hope everyone’s morning/evening/night is going quite swell! And if not, hopefully this unboxing + review will make you smile? Just a little bit…? 🙂

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 three 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]
  • Personalized Plan – $29/month [you will fill out a personalized reading profile which is used along with your Goodreads profile (if available) and each month you will receive a book based on YOUR specific reading preferences and tastes. No author content or reading experience]

I recently contacted someone directly at Uppercase to confirm that the Personalized Plan is no longer an option, so now there are only two plans that you can subscribe to!

Today I am Unboxing + Reviewing the JULY Uppercase Box! I usually post these the next month after just because I don’t want to spoil the contents for anyone that hasn’t gotten theirs yet! But anyways, let’s get on with the post.
