January 2017 Uppercase Box Review

        

Yeah, it's another book subscription box, what if it? I may be just a bit obsessed with them right now. I don't care though. I gotta add pretty books to the new pretty bookshelves! Seriously though, I think I've bought about 40 new books since the new year began... it's a problem. Luckily it's a problem I don't mind though so let's see what the newest addition to my shelves will be thanks to the January 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.

 

Inside every Uppercase is a lovely personal note from the founder that explains why the book was chosen. This also lists the items featured in this month's box. 

 

FrostBlood by Elly Blake --- Yay! This was on my anticipated reads list for this year so I'm happy to see it! Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

"Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a Fireblood who has concealed her powers of heat and flame from the cruel Frostblood ruling class her entire life. But when her mother is killed trying to protect her, and rebel Frostbloods demand her help to overthrow their bloodthirsty king, she agrees to come out of hiding, desperate to have her revenge.

Despite her unpredictable abilities, Ruby trains with the rebels and the infuriating--yet irresistible--Arcus, who seems to think of her as nothing more than a weapon. But before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to compete in the king's tournaments that pit Fireblood prisoners against Frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her--and from the icy young man she has come to love. "

 

And my absolute favorite part of Uppercase is that each book is signed by the author. I adore that extra special detail!

 

I love the FrostBlood magnet that was included! Also, I really enjoy the interactive aspect of Uppercase Box. It makes reading a bit more fun this way. 

 

In terms of my favorite book subscriptions, Uppercase Box is one of my top 5 favorites. They always make such fantastic selections and I love the extra details that make it such a special experience. I'm never disappointed!
