Uppercase Book Box has been popping up in a lot of instagram pictures today! As a reminder, this month’s box was in partnership with the always amazing Epic Reads.

This month’s book is By Your Side by Kasie West. I have a couple of Kasie West books sitting in my TBR piles, and I have read the samples chapters of By Your Side (thanks to Epic Reads First 5). It is a contemporary YA romance and the setup is that the two main characters have been trapped in a library over a long holiday weekend.
Here is the description from Goodreads:
When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.
Only he doesn’t come. No one does.
Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?
I think this looks like a perfect February romance box! The book selection is suited for the holiday, and they also included two bookmarks, Pride & Prejudice themed tea, and a Sherlock Holmes themed necklace.
Like me, you may have missed this month’s box, but you still have time to subscribe for the next one.
Things to know about Uppercase:
- They ship monthly and have multiple plans. The plan I would suggest is the Expert Plan, which includes the book and bookish goodies at the rate of $23. Shipping is $6.50 in the US. They also have a book exclusive box for $13.
- No theme = it’s a guessing game as to whether or not they will have a duplicate book to another box. You’ve been forewarned. It could happen anyway, even if you know the theme, just one of the risks you run if you have multiple subscriptions.
- They typically have fewer items than other boxes but are also less expensive; all of the items are typically good quality.
