Girl Against The Universe by Paula Stokes (hardcover) &
Girl Against The Universe Sticker + Bookmark

This is another great selection from Uppercase.  This book sounds really interesting and I can't wait to read it.

Goodreads Rating:  4.18

Goodreads Synopsis:

No matter how many charms she buys off the internet or good luck rituals she performs each morning, horrible things happen when Maguire is around. Like that time the rollercoaster jumped off its tracks. Or the time the house next door caught on fire. Or that time her brother, father, and uncle were all killed in a car crash—and Maguire walked away with barely a scratch.
It’s safest for Maguire to hide out in her room, where she can cause less damage and avoid meeting new people who she could hurt. But then she meets Jordy, an aspiring tennis star. Jordy is confident, talented, and lucky, and he’s convinced he can help Maguire break her unlucky streak. Maguire knows that the best thing she can do for Jordy is to stay away. But it turns out staying away is harder than she thought.
From author Paula Stokes comes a funny and poignant novel about accepting the past, embracing the future, and learning to make your own luck.

This book is also signed by the author!

2 oz. Loose Leaf Tea Blend from NovelTea Tins

This tea looks good!  Ingredients include black tea, red cinnamon, cardamom, and root of ginger.  I haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a tea that I would enjoy.  I love how these teas are related to a book.  This tea is the "Don QuixoTea-Man of La ManChai."  Clever.  :)

Retail Value for 3oz:  $14
Estimated Value for 2oz.:  $9.33

We also received a bookmark promoting the Pride & Peppermint Tea Blend that is coming soon to NovelTeas!  That is definitely a  tea blend that I have to try.

Book Paradise Postcard Set from Eric Nyffeler (Uppercase Exclusive)

These are very pretty postcards from Eric Nyffeler.  I don't really use postcards but these would be cute to frame.

Retail Value:  ??

My Thoughts:  I thought this was another great month for Uppercase.  The book sounds really interesting and I love that it's signed, the postcards are lovely, and I can't wait to try that tea.  I couldn't put a value on everything since the postcards are an Uppercase exclusive but I was really happy with everything this month.
