If you're like me then every once in awhile you notice that one of the book blogs you visit talks about a box of bookish goodies they have received from either Book Riot or Uppercase box. Yes? No? In any case I did, and I always wondered about them. I never actually subscribe to those two sites until about a month ago when I figured I would give it a try. Before getting your hope they do cost some money, but I find it to be worth it. I love the stuff I got. :)
Are you curious yet?
Book Riot actually does their boxes through a site called Quarterly. Their boxes cost 50.00, but when you see what you get it makes sense, and again it's worth it. You get a box every 3 months. They actually have two boxes now. One is a regular bookish box, and the other is a YA box (which I think is new). I'm actually subscribe for both now. This month I received the regular one. I got 2 books, and 2 bookish goodies. Although I've never heard of the two books I got it's still a nice surprise.
Below is a picture
I love the flask that says #booksandbooze and then the notebook that resembles a library checkout thing. I looked up some reviews on the books, and people seem to like them.
So all in all I'd say this was an awesome box. -Note apparently the YA boxes sell out quick-
The next bookish subscription I decided to try was Uppercase Box, and they have two options to choose from $23 for an expert box or $29 for a personalized box. I chose the personalized box of course. This box is actually a monthly subscription. It ships the 15th of every month. If you love YA books and fun goodies then this box is for you. Wanna see what I got?
It comes in this awesome little bag.
In the bag I received Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, a Jane Austin candle, and note from Uppercase staff and a book plate signed by Victoria Aveyard. I love it, and I didn't have the book yet.
So what are your thoughts on these boxes? Have you subscribed to them already? Are you planning on it now? Are there others like these that you can think of?
