Uppercase, August 2016 Review

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 2 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.
  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 $24.

Every Uppercase comes with a letter from Lisa detailing the items inside.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

Retail Value:  $17.99

Goodreads Rating:  4.05 stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Signed, sealed, delivered…
While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…

This sounds like a cute story but it might be too cutesy for me.  I'm more into mystery or horror novels these days.

The book was signed by the author!  I love when book subscription boxes send out signed books.  It just makes it more special.

P.S. I Like You Quote Print

Cute print!

Once Upon A Time Necklace

This is an Uppercase exclusive item!  A very cute (there I go with that word again) necklace that would make a nice gift.

Bookish Thoughts Notepad designed by Simini Blocker

This is another Uppercase exclusive item.  I could always use more notepads.  Why is it whenever I need a notepad I can never find one?  I think I need to buy a ton of notepads because they tend to get lost in my house.

My Thoughts:  The August box was another lovely box from Uppercase.    P.S. I Like You did get good reviews so I'll probably give it a chance.  I definitely recommend Uppercase to lovers of young adult fiction.  This particular box didn't really fit my tastes but I think the items from Uppercase are always great quality and I love that the books are always signed, it just adds more value to this subscription for me.
