Book Summary from Amazon:
The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane,coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.
At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.
Like that could go wrong.
This book is signed by all three authors:
I’m only a few chapters into the book so far, but I’m already really enjoying it. To be honest, I kind of knew I’d be enjoying it before I even got to the first chapter:
Juniper & Ivy Designs Deathly Hallows Magnet – Value $8
Probably not something you’ll read me saying often, but I think this is a pretty tasteful and classy magnet! (I’m also 100% biased on all things Harry Potter, so factor that in my opinion!)
Risa Rodil Designed Tote Bag – Value $12?
I’m estimating on the value of this tote because it is an Uppercase Box subscriber exclusive! (If you like Risa Rodil designs, I definitely recommend this subscription. Risa Rodil exclusive designs are a bit of a staple!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $30. I’m estimating on the tote, and the book is signed, so that may make the value higher to many people. I’m almost always happy with this subscription. I think the curation is great, and it seems like my taste in YA books is similar to Lisa’s so that works out very well!
What do you think of this month’s Uppercase box? Have you read the book yet?
OWLCRATE June 2016 SPOILER ALERT:
FYI – this exact book is also the Owl Crate book of the month. This is the first time they’ve ever had the same book – hopefully the last, too!
