Uppercase January 2016

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.  

Price:  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. 

Shipping:  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.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (hardcover)

Retail Value:  $18.99  Amazon Price:  $12.34

Goodreads Rating:  4.03

Goodreads Synopsis:

In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.

Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.

Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she's a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden - lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult's true powers are hidden even from herself.

In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls' heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

This book is also signed by the author!

This is a very cool poster!

Sup Nerd? Socks by Blue Q

These socks are so cute!  Love them.  Uppercase has also started including a bookmark with codes for an interactive reading experience.  They used to place the codes in the book but I think I like the bookmark better.

Socks Retail Value:  $9.99

Childlike Wonder Coloring Book from Emma Margaret Illustration

Coloring books are very popular right now so I was happy to receive this in my January Uppercase.  This is an Uppercase Exclusive!

Retail Value:  ??

My Thoughts:  Uppercase is another one of my favorite book subscription boxes.  I always love the chosen book for the month and the bookish items are always very cool.  This is one subscription that I will definitely be keeping.
