Uppercase October 2015

Uppercase is a monthly young adult book subscription box that includes one newly released hardcover young adult book (either signed by the author or a signed bookplate) and several book themed goodies. You also get an exclusive interactive reading experience.  

There are 3 different subscription plan options to choose from: The Expert Plan in which you receive a brand new hardcover young adult book, signed book or bookplate signed by the author, 1-2 high quality bookish items, a reading experience with exclusive content, and a personal hand written note to you.  This plan is $23 per month.  The Book Exclusive Plan which is the same as the Expert Plan without the exclusive items.  This plan is $17 per month.  The Personalized Plan where you fill out a personalized profile and you will receive a book based on your specific reading preferences. You still get the exclusive items but you will not receive the author content or the reading experience.  This plan is $29 per month.  I signed up for the Expert Plan. 

Uppercase currently ships to the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada. They also ship to APO addresses.  Shipping within the U.S. and Puerto Rico is $6 and shipping to Canada is $19.50.

Above is the note I received from Uppercase.  It details everything included in the box and talks more about the exclusive reading experience.  

It says that "the post-it notes placed in the book are part of a reading experience you can participate in with Uppercase.  Go to the website on the note and type in the code.  There you'll find questions, polls and videos that correspond to that moment in the book".

I think that's pretty cool that they have this exclusive reading experience!

First & Then by Emma Mills (hardcover)

The featured book this month is First & Then by Emma Mills.  It currently has a 3.97 star rating on Goodreads.  Retail value is $17.99.  The Amazon price is $9.89.

Here is the book's synopsis from Goodreads:

Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing. She's happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon's cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn't want them first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy, with a new brother, and with yourself.

This sounds like a cool book!!

Signed Bookplate from Emma Mills

I love how Uppercase includes either a signed book or a signed bookplate.  

Alice in Wonderland Coin Purse

This is really cute and I need a new coin purse so I'm happy this was in the box.

Retail Value: $12.99

Alice's Enchantmints from The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild

I haven't tried these yet but the packaging is cute.

Amazon Price:  $8.95

Lunar Chronicles Metallic Tattoos from FierceReads

Temporary tattoos aren't my thing so I'll probably gift these to someone.

Retail Value:  ?

Tara's Take:  I really enjoyed the October Uppercase box.  The featured book looks like something I'd like to read and I love the exclusive content that is included.  I think every book subscription box should come with either a signed book or a signed bookplate so I'm really happy that Uppercase included the signed bookplate.  I'll be using the coin purse and trying out the mints so they were a nice addition to the box.  This box definitely seems like a keeper.
