details | my boxes

Includes:
New hardcover Young Adult novel either signed or with a signed book plate
3-5 other bookish keepsakes related to the theme

My two-bits:

So far, my favorite YA box as the themes have been fun and I like bookish item selections.

Uppercase
(every month)
$29.99 (with shipping)
details | my boxes

Includes:
Signed first-editions of the best new YA books
High-quality, practical items (no trinkets or fandoms)
Exclusive behind-the-scenes content and video from the author
Interactive reading experience to connect and discuss the book

My two-bits:

While I also like this YA book box, my only concern is the packaging. The ones I received were in bubble envelope instead of a box. Because of this, a couple books received had damaged corners from travel.

$35.25 (plus shipping)
details | my boxes

Includes:
A critically acclaimed literary novel
3-5 bookish goods that encompass an emotion
(usually a text print, candle and tea)

My two-bits:

Loved the emotion themes and the usual items included.

  1. Thanks for the presentation of the subscription boxes and your thoughts on them. Owlcrate does sound fun and priced well for what you get. I keep saying I want to try book subscription when I get better caught up on my book pile.

  2. I signed up for Uppercase and cancelled after the first month. I wasn't really all that excited about the book I received and one of the extra items broke almost immediately. Owl Crate is very tempting but I am not sure how I feel about the surprise element of the box.
