It’s a new year and just to switch things up a little I’m going to start including a monthly post called This Chicks Uppercase Box Reveal. I subscribe to a Young Adult book of the month club called Uppercase Box. Yes, I am a little outside the demographic but I got the subscription when I was writing a young adult novel and have kept it because I got addicted to the fun monthly surprise in a box, and a book pick that was not usually on my radar. In addition to some book themed goodies, what makes this subscription so unique is that each novel comes with keywords that you can use to sign in online and interact with other readers, view videos from the author and read tidbits about what the author was thinking when they wrote a certain portion of the book. Behind the scenes insight which makes the reading experience even more enjoyable! If you’d like more information go to uppercasebox.com and read their blurb.
Now, for the big reveal! When I first open the package, I see an Uppercase Box bag filled with goodies.
There were a few things inside the bag besides the book: A magnet with a quote from the book- No One Knows But We Will , a typewriter sticker (a little young and sweet for my taste, but great to pass along to a fellow reader), and wooden rocket bookmark. There is a couple of hints in this photo below that reveals a little bit about the book…
The above card would be great framed wouldn’t it? It has a nice quote from Jane Austen that reads “I Declare After All There Is No Enjoyment Like Reading”. Amen sister! This is definitely true in my household!
Now for the January 12018 Uppercase Box Book, drumroll……..
A signed copy of A Conspiracy of Stars by Olivia A Cole
Octavia has always dreamed of becoming a whitecoat, one of the prestigious N’Terra scientists who study the natural wonders of Faloiv. So when the once-secretive labs are suddenly opened to students, she leaps at the chance to see what happens behind their closed doors.
However, she quickly discovers that all is not what it seems on Faloiv, and the experiments the whitecoats have been doing run the risk of upsetting the humans’ fragile peace with the Faloii, Faloiv’s indigenous people.
As secret after disturbing secret comes to light, Octavia finds herself on a collision course with the charismatic and extremist new leader of N’Terra’s ruling council. But by uncovering the mysteries behind the history she’s been taught, the science she’s lived by, and the truth about her family, she threatens to be the catalyst for an all-out war.
This is a recent release and I haven’t heard of this book. However, I really enjoy Science Fiction books and think this one sounds pretty good!
Have any of you read this book yet? If so, let me know if you liked it!
When I get it read, you will definitely see my review on The Reading Chick!
