April 2017 Uppercase Box Review


We all know I have a deep seeded love of books so it shouldn't surprise you to see another book related Review. I seriously have such a huge book buying problem. I just bought $300 worth of bookcases at IKEA in February and I've already got overflow happening. I try to stay away from buying physical copies with audiobooks or ebooks, but there's just something about holding a book in my hands. Obviously, as much as I try, I can't resist a book subscription and one of the best ones around is my coveted 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 lovely, personal note from Uppercase founder, Lisa that tells you a bit about this month's book and why she chose it. 

 
Included, the usual Bookmark that lets you access the best part of Uppercase - the exclusive content to amp up your reading experience! It's really such a fantastic perk! There's also a bit of book swag in the form of this nice magnet. I'm starting to build a lovely collection of these on my fridge!

 
Defy The Stars by Claudia Gray --- I got super excited about the book this month. I adored Claudia Grays Firebird Trilogy so I knew I would want to read this. Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

"She’s a soldier.

Noemi Vidal is seventeen years old and sworn to protect her planet, Genesis. She’s willing to risk anything—including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she’s a rebel.

He’s a machine.

Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel has advanced programming that’s begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he’s an abomination.

Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they’re not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they’re forced to question everything they’d been taught was true."

 
Another one of my favorite things about Uppercase - the books are always signed!

 
As I am every month, I'm so happy with the book selection. Despite not having the full blown subscription, I still adore Uppercase. Signed books and a great interactive experience... what more could you ask for?
