Uppercase Box January 2017 Unboxing

Hey peeps, I’m here with another Uppercase Box unboxing for you! If you don’t know what Uppercase is, as it says on the website, it’s “a young adult book-of-the-month subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a recently published YA book and awesome book-related items every month! Plus you’ll access exclusive book content and a one-of-a-kind reading experience to dive deeper into each story.”

This month’s box was cute and simple, which I like, and it also has interesting items that made me wonder how they relate to the book that was given. Here’s what was inside:

So we have:

  • Frostblood by Elly Blake – SIGNED
  • Frostblood magnet
  • Alice in Wonderland scarf (Uppercase exclusive)
  • Book seed paper (herb mix) from Bloomin

I hadn’t really heard of Frostblood until a week or so before I received this box, but from reading the synopsis it sounds really cool (haha, get it?) and I’m very interested in reading it. It’s about a girl named Ruby who’s looking for vengeance for her mother’s death after she was killed protecting her because Ruby is a Fireblood (which seems to be someone who can use fire?), and then it turns into her becoming part of the king’s tournaments against the Frostbloods. It sounds fun, regardless, so I’m interested in reading it.

Also, the seed paper sounds really cool! Like, I can grow my own small garden? Neat! They also make wedding invitations and cards and such.

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Have you read the book? What are your thoughts? What about the seed paper? Would you order one and plant your own garden?

Uppercase Box December Unboxing

Hey peeps, I’m here with another Uppercase Box unboxing for you! If you don’t know what Uppercase is, as it says on the website, it’s “a young adult book-of-the-month subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a recently published YA book and awesome book-related items every month! Plus you’ll access exclusive book content and a one-of-a-kind reading experience to dive deeper into each story.”

This has got to be my favorite box that I’ve received from Uppercase EVER. From the book to the goodies I am seriously head over heels in love with the contents and I am so happy to have them in my life right now! Let’s just jump right into the picture, shall we?

Okay, so, let’s talk about the glorious items in this box, shall we?

I can’t get over the GORGEOUS items in this month’s box, guys! Seriously, everything in this box had me gasping with the sheer beauty of each item. Even the bag that it came in was decorated with a lovely design! I love every single piece and I can’t wait to use the planner.

The book cover in person is seriously the most gorgeous cover I’ve seen all year. I’m in love with the design and the colors. And then in the planner by Simini Blocker there are drawings with diverse people for each month with a quote from different authors on the pages. Love it!


Also, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! And happy holidays to all! You’re all so awesome and I thank you all for the time, comments, love, and support you all share with me every single day. Have a wonderful rest of 2016! I’m planning on doing a week of posts, so hopefully I’m able to get them all up on time!

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Are you a planner? As in, do you like using them? Do you use digital planners (like a calendar app) or do you prefer traditional pen and paper? I personally love getting planners but I always fail to use them every year! Hopefully now that I have two (personal and bookish) I’ll be on top of it and use them!

November Uppercase Box Unboxing

Hey peeps, I’m here with another Uppercase Box unboxing for you! If you don’t know what Uppercase is, as it says on the website, it’s “a young adult book-of-the-month subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a recently published YA book and awesome book-related items every month! Plus you’ll access exclusive book content and a one-of-a-kind reading experience to dive deeper into each story.”

I haven’t had a box the last two months what with moving and stuff, but I missed getting a box every month, so I picked it back up! Either way I’m excited for this month’s box (even though I bought the exact same book the exact same day before I got my box! so sad).

What was included in this month’s box was:

  • The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon – SIGNED
  • The Sun is Also a Star temporary tattoo
  • Harry Potter cookie cutters from Frosted Co.
  • Greeting card set from 9th Letter Press (Uppercase Exclusive)
  • Carve the Mark chapter sampler

These cards are adorable and I can’t WAIT to make fun cookies with the HP cookie cutters! Ahh! I’m also extremely excited to read the book because I really enjoyed her debut novel last year.

Here’s the synopsis:

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

Doesn’t it sound good? I can’t wait to read it.

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Have you read the book yet? What did you think? I’d share my HP shaped cookies with you all, but alas, they’d be in my belly before they could get to you. Do you believe in fate or are you more of a science and fact person like Natasha?

Uppercase Box August Unboxing

Hey peeps, I’m here with another Uppercase Box unboxing for you! If you don’t know what Uppercase is, as it says on the website, it’s “a young adult book-of-the-month subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a recently published YA book and awesome book-related items every month! Plus you’ll access exclusive book content and a one-of-a-kind reading experience to dive deeper into each story.”

So I actually got this the day before my birthday last week (my birthday was August 18th) and so it was like I got a present from Uppercase! (Well, I mean, it IS a present, kind of…)

I’ve heard good things about the book that came in this month’s box and so I’m definitely excited to read it. It seems like it’s right up my alley with the lovey dovey stuff.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West – SIGNED
-P.S. I Like You quote print
-Once Upon a Time necklace (Uppercase exclusive)

All of the items are very adorable and I really can’t wait to read the book because it sounds so CUTE. And what with my slump, I think that’s just what I need.

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Have you read the book yet? What were your thoughts? What kind of song would you write?

July Uppercase Box Unboxing

Hey peeps, I’m here with another Uppercase Box unboxing for you! If you don’t know what Uppercase is, as it says on the website, it’s “a young adult book-of-the-month subscription box. Simply put: You sign up and receive a recently published YA book and awesome book-related items every month! Plus you’ll access exclusive book content and a one-of-a-kind reading experience to dive deeper into each story.”

Uppercase is killing it with these picks for books! It was another case of, “I want to get this book,” and I got it, so I didn’t have to buy it. Very exciting!

This month’s box included:

  • This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (signed)
  • 480 vintage sticky notes set
  • This Savage Song exclusive button
  • Custom stamped book lover pencil set (Uppercase exclusive)

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book because it’s a young adult book without ANY ROMANCE. I mean, is that unheard of? I feel like almost all YA books have some sort of romance in them (which I’m perfectly fine with), but I think this’ll be a breath of fresh air to see just an awesome friendship blossom.

And the sticky notes are so cute! And the pencils! And pins are so fun to collect. Awesome job, Uppercase! Thanks again!

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts? Do you play any instruments? I can play the guitar, even though I haven’t played in a long time.
