Today I’m going to combine two of my monthly posts – my TBR list for the month and the Uppercase box I just received!
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
Here are my goodies from the October box!
I’ve heard great things about Rebel Belle and was always on the fence about whether or not I’d like it. The “southern” aspect didn’t appeal too much to me because I’m a northern girl, BUT I lately have fallen head over heels for the Hundred Oaks series by Miranda Kenneally – which is all about the south! Lisa writes, “Because you enjoy paranormal reads, I knew this on was for you. It’s got a high school contemporary feel with some southern sass.” Sounds perfect for me! I’m now VERY excited for this read.
The accessory is a mockingjay bracelet in honor of the Hunger Games movie coming out this month! Such a cute little bracelet! It’s the kind of thing I’d like to own but would never go out and buy myself. I’ll definitely be wearing it when I go see the movie 🙂
Last month I did a pretty terrible job of keeping to my TBR list, as usual. (Why do I even try to make these lists work??) From my selection of October books, I did end up reading 4 books. I REALLY wanted to get to the Throne of Glass series but I keep putting it off because I’m afraid of burying myself in an intense series at the moment. Here are some of the books I really hope to get to for November! (Some of them I NEED to get to, because they’ll be due back at the library before I know it)
Wow. That’s a great pick from Uppercase. I’ve heard of Uppercase before a couple times, I believe, I need to definitely try it out sometime.
Rooms and Even In Paradise are two books I really want to read. Better luck to you this reading month. 🙂 I started Throne of Glass Wednesday night and I’m still not very far into it. I’m stuck getting the series through the library, so I’ll probably read the following books in between other books.
Uppercase is a lot of fun! Highly recommend.
Very excited to get reading this month! I’m currently stuck in my book right now and never in the mood to read. I haven’t had a chance to in a long time 🙁
I’ll have to try it next month. Maybe as a Christmas present to myself. 🙂
Starting a new month is great, so many new reading possibilities. What book are you currently reading? I get in the same mood on not wanting to read. Aw, sorry about you not having a chance to.
I’m reading White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L Armentrout
I’ve heard she’s really good. I have Don’t Look Back by her reserved at the library.
Shadow and Bone is an action packed trilogy and it doesn’t help that all three books are already published! 🙂
haha I’m excited!!
The Uppercase box looks really cool! I’ve never heard of it before, but I think I might have to check it out!
Definitely do!! Lots of fun
Upercase sounds really cool and I would love to get a new book every month. They aren’t too expensive, but not something I can afford at this time as a college student. If I worked year round I might be willing to put the money into it, but right now I only work during the summer and Christmas break. I would like to get into the Hundred Oaks Series, but I haven’t done so yet.
I know what you mean. LOVE the Hundred Oaks books!
Oooh what an exciting TBR and SHADOW AND BONE! I am so excited for you!!!
Shadow and Bone was AWESOME. Exceeded all of my expectations!
