May 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.”

This month’s box included some cute things that I’m excited to use, so here is what was in it:

Lots of nifty things this month:

I’m really excited to use the postcards and the drink the tea. Oh man, so exciting!

The book also sounds interesting because it’s about a girl who has the worst luck ever, but she meets this guy who plays tennis who says he can break her unlucky streak. Of course, things are much more complicated than that, but it sounds interesting!

I can’t wait to see what next month’s box will bring!

Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦

Have you read the book yet? What were your thoughts? Do you like to drink tea? What about writing postcards – have you ever done it?

April 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.”

This month’s box had some added extra goodies because a) I had that option to pay for some extra things, and b) because something happened with it and they added a poster as an apology.

Here’s what was inside:

  • A signed copy of Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw
  • Stickers that reflect the book
  • I read YA pin & invite to events from May 2-6
  • A Book Addict keychain from Peachy Apricot
  • Hagrid and Buckbeak bookmarks from BeeDoo (extra)
  • The Book of Magical Things notebook (extra)
  • Poster (added extra)
  • Letter & bookmark with extra goodies

This month’s box was seriously awesome! I already have the keychain on my keyring – I didn’t waste any time with that! And I hung up the poster next to my shelves (which also covers up a chip in the paint on the wall, shhhhh).

The book itself sounds interesting because it deals with more of the Internet side of relationships and things than other contemporary books do, at least from what I’ve read so far. I’m excited to read it because it also seems like it’s going to be a funny book.

This month’s Uppercase was awesome! I’m still going to continue this subscription box as I like the items in it a lot and still want to get at least something each month.

Let me know if you’ve read the book yet (though it just came out April 19th) and what your thoughts are on it. What did you think of the items inside? Do you get any book subscriptions? Let me know!

The Book Drop April 2016 Unboxing

Hey guys! Here’s another unboxing from The Book Drop. As it says on the website:

The Book Drop is our very own monthly subscription box service. What does this mean? This means once a month we hand-select one of our favorite new books based on your reading preferences, package it up all nice and cute in a box and send it your way! Book Drop subscribers get a book delivered to their doorstep (or mailbox) once a month from Bethany Beach Books.

So I’m subscribed to the Jane box which includes:

  • Paperback book (usually a contemporary or historical fiction novel, with the occasional literary fiction novel)
  • Indie Next list for the upcoming month
  • An occasional goodie

This month has a book that I’m actually pretty intrigued about! I’ve never heard of it before but it definitely seems like one up my alley.

It came with:

The note says,

A Dictionary of Mutual Understanding was a recent book club pick for us and our group had one of the best discussions about this book! This is an extraordinary novel of family, loyalty, and love. It’s a novel about women and about how far we’ll go to protect those we love and cherish. Included you’ll also find a signed bookplate from Jackie Copleton. Happy Reading! Enjoy! Love, AZ

It’s a book that reflects back on life and love, and how hard life can be sometimes. I’m excited to read it because I love reading about books of people from other cultures, as well as ones that dive into the past like that.

Have you read this book? What did you think about it? Do you receive any book subscription boxes that you think I should check out? Let me know!

March 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.”

So this month was a cool box because I had thought about getting this book in store, but I’m glad I didn’t because it showed up in the package!

Here’s what it looked like:

As you can see, the box included:

And of course it came with the reading experience bookmark where you can participate in some fun things through Uppercase for the book that month.

I already have the magnet up on my fridge and I’m currently wearing the earrings. One of my coworkers actually complimented me today and said that she really liked them. She then proceeded to ask: “What’s the quote? Your face?” And I just nodded and framed my face with my hands and she laughed.

All in all, I really like this month’s box! I definitely love the earrings the most, but I am also excited to read the book!

What do you think of this month’s box? Have you/will you read the book? Are you signed up for any book subscription boxes? Let me know!

The Book Drop March Subscription Box

Hey guys! So I signed up for another book subscription box, but this one is from The Book Drop. As it says on the website:

The Book Drop is our very own monthly subscription box service. What does this mean? This means once a month we hand-select one of our favorite new books based on your reading preferences, package it up all nice and cute in a box and send it your way! Book Drop subscribers get a book delivered to their doorstep (or mailbox) once a month from Bethany Beach Books.

So I’m subscribed to the Jane box which includes:

  • Paperback book (usually a contemporary or historical fiction novel, with the occasional literary fiction novel)
  • Indie Next list for the upcoming month
  • An occasional goodie

I chose this box in particular because it allows me to receive books outside of the normal genre that I’ve been reading lately and it also allows me to receive books that I’d otherwise never pick up on my own. So for this month I’m actually really excited for the book that was in the box.

Here’s how the box came:

IMG_2667

It was a long box that was sealed to the teeth, so cutting it open was kind of difficult. BUT! Once I did manage to open it, here’s what was inside:

IMG_2669

The items that I received were:

  • May the Road Rise Up to Meet You by Peter Troy.
  • A Celtic magnetic bookmark (that matches the book in terms of one of the character’s origin).
  • A little note about the book and why it was chosen.
  • An Indie Next book list for the upcoming month.

As the note states,

“‘Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Civil War, May the Road Rise Up to Meet You is a story of four unforgettable characters who illuminate the quintessential American experience.’ I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it’s one of my favorites. Despite being published a few years ago, it’s still one of the my go-to staff recommendations when customers come in looking for a good book. We also included a little magnetic Celtic bookmark! Happy reading!! Love, AZ”

And then when I read the rest of the synopsis I became intrigued and interested in reading it. As I haven’t read many books based around the Civil War era, I’m interested to see this take on it and how it plays out.

Overall, my first box from Bethany Beach Books (aka, The Book Drop) was a fun one and I’m excited to see what the next month will bring.

Have you ever received a box from The Book Drop? Have you read this book? If so, what are your thoughts? Let me know!
