Comparing Book Subscription Boxes

Today I am going to compare the three subscription boxes I have been getting the last few months and which one I prefer the most over the others. I will be comparing Uppercase which I have been getting since october, owlcrate, and fairyloot all of these boxes are young adult book subscription boxes. Also I did want to mention that I bought all three subscriptions I did not receive them for free to review. okay so let's get started....

Uppercase

The first box I am going to talk about is Uppercase, while I did enjoy this box when I first started getting it I found that there were other boxes that had way more in them for basically the same price I originally picked this box (which is actually a bag) because I wanted to get a cheaper box for my first box. this box starts at $13.99 for the exclusive plan and $23.00 a month for their expert plan I went ahead and got the expert plan the expert plan comes with bookish goodies whereas the exclusive plan does not. I would probably give this box a 3-star rating from the best box I received but I did get a few boxes I would only give a 2-star rating, and this is because while I felt like the books they included were great I didnt feel i had much use for the other items that came in the boxes. one thing I did enjoy more about this box than the other two boxes was that all the books are signed on the actual book whereas all the other boxes I have received have come with a signed book plate which I have no idea what to do with. Here is an unboxing of the latest box from Uppercase received r in this month....

 

Owlcrate

So the next box I'm going to mention is Owlcrate I enjoyed this box a lot more than the uppercase box it is a little more expensive but I think it's worth the $7 to upgrade to this box. This box starts ar $29.99 and you receive a book and other bookish goodies and both boxes that I have gotten have both had signed book plates. I do feel like this box is a giant step up from Uppercase I really liked the books in both boxes and I love how they include what the next month theme is which uppercase does not do. I feel like this helps you stay away from pre-ordering books that are in the theme so you don't end up with two of the same books. I feel like most of the things I recieved in this box i would use often or would be really nice displayed on my bookshelf! I will continue to be subscribed to this box! Overall I would rate this box as a 4-star, here is my unboxing for febuary.... 

 

Fairyloot

The last box I am going to talk about is my favorite box of the three I have only received one box so far this past month put every item in this box made me so excited and I can't wait to get the next box, the only issue with this box is there are only limited quantities and it is a very high demand book box so there is a waiting list to get subscribed though most months you will be able to order the box as a single purchase which is what I ended up doing last month. currently, they are out of stock for the march box but I am checking back at the site every day waiting for there to be boxes for single purchase which I believe go on sale after all subscriptions are filled. These boxes start at $26.99 but if you live in the U.S. like me shipping is a little more pricey than the other boxes I think I ended up paying $40 after shipping, But it was so worth it for this box I received a really great book and I loved all the bookish goodies! I gave this box a 5-star rating and hopefully soon I will be able to get on the subscription list....Here is my instagram picture of my february fairyloot box...

 

So in conclusion if I were to pick one box I would definitely pick the Fairyloot box it is by far my favorite but the other boxes are great too. Uppercase is great if your wanting a box but your on a budget, Owlcrate is great if you want to upgrade from uppercase but don't want to spend $40 also owlcrate just launched an owlcrate jr box that contains books and bookish goodies for kids it is one I will be subscribing to next month for my kiddos and we are all really excited about. If you're interested in that watch out for a youtube video of my kiddos doing an unboxing!
