I am no stranger to subscription boxes—Nailette, PopSugar, ipsy, Birchbox, Petit Vour…you name it, I’ve probably signed up for it. Why it never dawned on me to search for a book themed subscription box, I’ll never know—but Kiesha told me about Uppercase Box and I knew I had to try it!
Uppercase is a YA subscription box service. There are two options: Expert Pick ($29) where they choose a book they think everyone will love, or the Personalized Rec ($35) where they choose something specifically for you. Being a cheapskate and thrill-seeker, I rolled with the Expert Pick.
The packaging is adorable! It was obviously sent in a plastic mailer, not this. I was thrilled to feel a hardcover book.
The Expert Pick option includes book swag, a book, and a book item. My book item was a small box of Bertie Botts Beans, which is extremely creepy because my co-worker and I were reminiscing about booger-flavored beans just this week.
I received Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little. It looks like something I would have picked out myself, so I’m pretty excited about that. I also got an autographed card and a pin. Each Uppercase box includes a handwritten note from the Uppercase creator, so that’s pretty nifty, too.
Overall, I really enjoyed this subscription box. However, I will not be resubscribing due to the cost—it’s a little too steep for me.
I bought this box with my own money—no perks involved!
