Why I Hate Green Beans by Lincee Ray Review

Hello Everyone :)


I hope you're all doing well, and I want to thank you for joining me for another book review today here on The Preppy Book Princess.


I've mentioned before that I don't actually read a lot of non-fiction books, but every so often I do, and sometimes I find a new favorite book in the process. That's definitely what happened with my newest non-fiction read, and I couldn't wait to share all about it with you guys.

Publisher: Revell


Publication Date: February 6th, 2018


Genre: Christian Non-Fiction

In Peppermint Peril by Joy Avon Review

Good morning everyone :)


While fall is my favorite season, it feels in some ways that we've skipped right over it this year as we're already experiencing snow and freezing temperatures.


I'm missing my beloved fall temperatures, but I have to say that the snow has put me in the mood to read cozy mysteries, especially Christmas themed ones. I recently finished one from NetGalley that's coming out next month, and today I'd like to share with all of you what I thought about it.

Paperback Crush: The Totally Radical History Of 80's And 90's Teen Fiction by Gabrielle Moss Review

Hello Everyone :)


Have you ever come across a book before that you just know by the synopsis that it was basically written for you, and you need to do whatever you can to get your hands on a copy immediately.

Well that's what happened to me when I stumbled upon Gabrielle Moss' Paperback Crush on Instagram. I couldn't wait to read this, and I was beyond belief excited when I got approved to read it on NetGalley.

It took me a little while to get my thoughts all in order to share this review with you guys, as this book just contains so much good stuff. I finally did though, and today I'm here to share all my thoughts and opinions on it with you all.

Finally Fall Book Tag

I love fall, and I love book tags, so it seemed only fitting that as we're officially into the fall season now that I go ahead and do this fun book tag.

In Fall The Air Is Crisp and Clear. Name a Book With a Vivid Setting:



I'm not a fan of everything in this series so far, but it has by far one of the greatest settings I've ever seen in a fantasy novel. The idea of a young adult fantasy series being written entirely around the Great Library of Alexandria is definitely something up my alley. 


Nature is Beautiful, but Also Dying. Name a Book That Is Beautifully Written but Also Deals With a Heavy Topic Like Grief or Loss.



Morgan Matson is such a fantastic storyteller, and the realistic way that grief is portrayed in this beautiful YA contemporary keeps it one of my all time favorites.


Fall Is Back To School Season. Name a Non-Fiction Book That Taught You Something New.



This was one of the very first non-fiction books that I read when I switched to home schooling from public school…

Checking Back On My Very First Book Haul

Hello Everyone :)


I'm going to be doing a very different kind of post today than what I'm used to. I've seen quite a few booktubers doing this lately, and I thought it would be fun to check up on my own post this way too. What I'm going to be doing is going back to my very first book haul I ever posted on my blog, and see how many of the books included in that hall have I actually read.


For me, my very first book haul was my Christmas book haul of 2015 which I posted on January 1st, 2016 and you can find it here.




This was all the books I hauled in that post, and let's jump in and see how many I've actually read.



Holiday Homecoming by Jean C Gordan: I'm happy to say that this one I have actually read ✔

The Doctor's Christmas Wish by Renee Ryan: I have also finished this one already ✔

The Bachelor's Homecoming by Karen Kirst: This one I have not read ✖

The Rancher's Christmas Proposal by Sherri Shackleford: I've read this one ✔

Twas the Knife before Christmas by Jacqueline Frost Review

Happy Monday Everyone :) and Happy Thanksgiving To All Of My Fellow Canadians!


I have to say that the frigid temperatures we've been experiencing lately have me even more so in the mood to read Christmas books than usual. I'd especially been craving reading some good cozy mysteries, and thankfully I found a couple of interesting sounding ones on NetGalley to read during these chilly fall nights.


Today I'd like to share with you all my thoughts on the first one I finished as it was definitely a pleasant surprise.
