I decided to splurge a bit and treat myself to a book subscription service/box. Since I read tons of YA, Uppercase Box was the natural choice for me. I decided to start off with the Expert Pick which means I’ll get the same book as everyone else. There’s also a Personalized Recommendation option if you’d like to pay a bit more.
This month’s main selection had mature themes so Uppercase was kind enough to notify subscribers of this before sending the book out. They offered another choice for those who didn’t want a mature book. I’m never a fan of language and sexual content so I opted for the other choice. I really appreciated being given the choice.
Fresh Out of the Mailer
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I’m not a huge YA contemporary fan so we’ll see how I like it. My friends on Goodreads seemed to really enjoy it though.
I don’t like the way sunglasses look on me so I never wear them. I’ll probably never wear these overly juvenile glasses. I know they’re on the book cover but who looks good in these?! It’s disappointing to get an accessory that I’ll never use.
Hand Written Note
Verdict? I certainly like the idea of the box but I wasn’t overjoyed with the contents of the first box. I’m hoping I’ll change my mind when I get a chance to read the book.
