Review: February Uppercase Subscription Box

Who doesn’t love a good monthly subscription box? I know I do! I love the surprise. I love that feeling of anticipation and excitement that builds as the date of the delivery gets closer and closer. You just never know what that month’s box is going to bring you but you know that whatever it is, it’s going to be awesome. February’s Uppercase Box was exactly that.

Y’all look at how awesome this box was! I’ve loved every box from them so far but I think this one just might be my favorite.

  • Book: Starflight (Starflight #1) by Melissa Landers – This book is a YA science fiction (love me some sci fi) that is being compared to the tv show, Firefly. That’s some seriously high praises right there. It’s currently holding a 4-star rating on Goodreads. So far so good, right?

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She’s so desperate to reach the realm that she’s willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he’s been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world—and each other—the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe…

  • Starflight Poster and Bookmark – Beautiful matching design to the book. I really like the quote that they used as well, it’s cute and cheesy and fills you up with those warm fuzzy feelings. Sold!
  • Starflight Nail Wraps – I’ll be honest, I’ve never actually used nail wraps as I thought that was something little girls used, like how we used to use those sticker earrings (don’t act like you never used them, I know you did!). However, I did see a picture on Instagram of someone who wore these and I have to say, they turned out to be really cool looking. Do you think my local nail salon would put them on for me? I can’t paint my own nails. And yes, I do know that I am a terrible girl. My mom loves to remind me that every day.
  • Anne of Green Gables Infinity Scarf – Now this here, this is AMAZING. So amazing in fact, that I’m currently wearing mine as I write this blog post. It’s beautiful, lightweight, and the softest scarf I now own. So soft, I can barely even tell that I’m wearing it. It might be my new favorite article of clothing. Also, it’s an ANNE OF GREEN GABLES QUOTE!

As you can see for your yourself, this subscription box is definitely worth it. All of the items are of really great quality, each book is a new hardback YA released that month (so don’t worry about getting the paperback edition of some book released in 1995), and every book is either signed by the author or includes a signed nameplate. For $23 a month, that’s quite a bargain. However, it currently only serves the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

What do you think? Are there any subscription boxes that you recommend?
