September 2016 Uppercase Box Review


Will there ever come a day when I won't love to read? I highly doubt it! Reading has always been such a huge part of my life and even after 11 years together, my husband still can't understand why I love books so much. He thinks they are a massive waste of money but obviously, that has not stopped me from buying more and more. I won't ever have too many books on my shelf and it's time to add another one to my library thanks to Uppercase Box!

If you don't know, Uppercase Box is a monthly book subscription service. Each month, subscribers will receive a newly released, signed YA novel along with a couple bookish goodies. They have to plans available: The Expert plan is $23.00 per month (plus s+h) and the Book Exclusive plan is normally $17.00 per month but is currently on sale for $13.99 (plus s+h). This review is for the Book Exclusive box.

Included is a personalized note from Lisa (the Uppercase Box founder) that tells you a tiny bit about why she chose this book. The note also lists the items featured in this month's box.

The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron --- This is one of the most gorgeous book covers I have ever seen. The colors and textures are stunning to look at. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

"What isn't written, isn't remembered. Even your crimes. Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person's memories -- of parents, children, love, life, and self -- are lost. Unless they have been written. 

In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn't written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten. 

But when Nadia begins to use her memories to solve the mysteries of Canaan, she discovers truths about herself and Gray, the handsome glassblower, that will change her world forever. As the anarchy of the Forgetting approaches, Nadia and Gray must stop an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence - before the people can forget the truth. And before Gray can forget her."

It sounds like it's going to be an awesome read!

This is what I love most about this particular subscription. I love love LOVE having a signed book or bookplate. To me, It makes the reading experience a little more special.

A cute and very handy little notebook. Another unique thing about Uppercase Box is their exclusive content reading experience. Each page number on this bookmark has a corresponding code. Enter the code on the website and you'll get to see content just for Uppercase subscribers! It's awesome!

This was my very first Uppercase Box and I absolutely love this subscription! You can easily see how much time and effort goes into choosing an amazing book each month and I love how they focus mainly on the book and reading experience itself rather than the bookish items.
