This is my attempt to show off what bookish goodies I got in my Uppercase box from the previous month, as well as plan out what I’m going to read for the coming month. I don’t usually do too well with planning out my TBRs and sticking to them, but I hope sharing them with you guys will make me more accountable for them 😉 Have you read any of these books? Thinking about joining Uppercase? It’s so fun!
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 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 November box!
I’m so excited that I got Trust Me, I’m Lying! This one has been on my TBR but for some reason I never got around to buying it or looking into it further. It was recommended because it’s a mix of contemporary and mystery, plus I love the Pretty Little Liars series. The book will keep me guessing until the end; I love books like that but I don’t read them nearly enough! My “accessory” this time was a box of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans! YAY for Harry Potter. I also got a coupon to a bookish store online, so that’s awesome.
I decided that I am officially a crazy person who needs to schedule their books around to make sure they can fit everything in. This month, that’s mostly because I’m featuring holiday books on the blog. I didn’t want to read all of them too early in December, because I like to save some for really close to the holidays… This threw a wrench into the works because now I’m cramming a lot of reading in. I just got a book through an ARC tour that I wasn’t expecting, so that’s going to delay some of my reading. Luckily I’m more in the mood to read this week than I have been lately. From last month’s TBR, I read four out of the twelve that I selected. Whoops! This month will definitely be better because I need to get those holiday reviews in! Last week’s Top Ten Tuesday was for your Winter TBR, so some of this will be repeated. Without further ado, here’s what I’m planning to read in December!
And for the non-holiday reads:
