Uppercase Box #1

I am very excited that I just got my first UPPERCASE box in the mail yesterday!! In case you don’t know what it is or what you get, Uppercase box is a subscription service with two levels of membership. For the first level, you get an Expert Pick – this is a hand-selected book that the YA experts love and recommend. The Personalized Recommendation box, which is what I have, comes with a book selected just for YOU based on your preference quiz. The boxes are filled with:

  • A book, either chosen specifically for your preferences OR one that is generally recommended by an expert
  • A gift, like bookmarks, jewelry, totes, etc. (that obviously relate to books!)
  • A personal explanation of the book choice and other similar titles
  • Some discount codes for popular book-buying websites

Without further ado, here’s my Personalized Recommendation Box!2014-10-02 10.17.23

I’ve gotta say, she definitely hit the nail on the head. Pivot Point by Kasie West has been on my TBR list for a while and I just hadn’t gotten around to buying it yet. The bookmarks are so cute – it’s a pad of 25 bookmarks that say “Yes I’m Actually Reading This” with areas to fill in the book, author, questions, words, etc. I loved the handwritten note that came with it! She chose Pivot Point because I like writers similar to Jenny Han and paranormal books. “It’s got it all – fantasy and romance and suspense.” Woohoo! 🙂

  1. I’m so tempted to join this. I do Popsugar Must Have so that is holding me back, but this just looks so fun. What is better than a mystery box??? A mystery box WITH books! 🙂

    And you will LOVE Pivot Point. It’s so well clever.

    • I really like it! Of course I splurged and got the Personal Recommendation box, but I think it’s worth them tailoring it to your interests. She did a good job since Pivot Point has definitely been on my radar for a while! I searched forever for a book subscription box and stumbled across this one so I had to do it lol. The Expert Pick box is only $29 I think so that’s not too bad.

  2. This sounds totally awesome! My aunt bought me the bookmarks for my 21st and I’m afraid to use them all up because I love them so much. They’re really useful if you’re an avid reader and like to be reminded of inspirational bits if you’re a writer too. Looks really cool!

  3. How did I not know or hear about this before today!? 😳 this is amazing and I’m pretty sure I need it in my life! I’ve had Pivot point on my TBR too! ❤️❤️ love the bookmark!
    Enjoy it!
