This is a review for my first Uppercase Box which was the November 2016 box. First of all, I LOVED the book "The Sun is Also a Star", it was such a good story and the copy they send is signed by the author. The bummer were the bookish items they included, they weren't very high quality or useful to me (two flimsy cookie cutters and unicorn themed 5-card stationery set-- I wouldn't know who to send those to). I was also expecting the extra curated content to be more impressive, 5 extra content codes and most of them were just a single paragraph by the author that did not really enrich my reading experience the way I was expecting. At $23 / month plus $6 for shipping I don't think that the money is worth what I received. Still a fun box for fans of YA books, and again an amazing choice of book for the month!

I love this book subscription. The books are great and most often they are signed books as well. They have a great way of curating each month and I look forward to getting my box each month.
