To Best The Boys by Mary Weber Review

Hello Everyone :)

Thank you for joining me today for another book review here on the Preppy Book Princess.

Today I'm going to be sharing with you all a review for an upcoming book release by an 
author I'd never personally read before, Mary Weber.

To Best The Boys by Mary Weber:

Genre: Young Adult Fiction/Fantasy


Every year for the past fifty-four years, the residents of Pinsbury Port receive a mysterious letter inviting all eligible-aged boys to compete for an esteemed scholarship to the all-male Stemwick University. Every year, the poorer residents look to see that their names are on the list. The wealthier look to see how likely their sons are to survive. And Rhen Tellur opens it to see if she can derive which substances the ink and parchment are created from, using her father’s microscope.

In the province of Caldon, where women are trained in wifely duties and men are …

Top Ten Book Couples

Hello Everyone :)

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

It's been a very very long time since I last participated in Top Ten Tuesday, but I'm hoping to make more time for this weekly meme in 2019.

If you're unfamiliar, Top Ten Tuesday was first started by The Broke and the Bookish, and you can now find it at That Artsy Reader Girl. 

This week's topic is Favorite Couples In Books, and it was one that was really hard to narrow down to my top ten choices. I have so many favorite couples that it would be impossible to limit it to just ten, but the ones I've chosen are definitely some of my all time favorites.

Christy and Todd from The Christy Miller series and spin offs by Robin Jones Gunn:

I love these two, and I especially love that the reader gets to see their relationship from young teens and continuing on through college, marriage and children.

Edward and Bella from Twilight:

I know a lot of reader…

Bookish Hallmark Movies

Good Morning Friends :)

I hope you're all having a great day, and I want to thank you all for joining me for another bookish post here on The Preppy Book Princess.

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, then you're probably aware that I'm a big fan of the Hallmark channel.
I continue to love the fact that they produce wholesome family movies that I never have to be nervous about letting my niece and nephews watch with me, and I adore the sweet romances that play on the channel through each and every season.
I tend to blog about Hallmark movies fairly frequently, and in fact, my Hallmark posts continue to be the most popular ones on my blog.
Today though I'd like to focus on the fact that Hallmark has actually made quite a few movies for us book nerds. Have any of you guys realized just how many of their movies are about bookstores or authors or the like?
So for a fun different kind of post, today I'm going to compile all of the bookish themed Hallmark movies that…

Salt and Stone by Victoria Scott Review With Spoilers

Good Morning Everyone :) 

I hope you're all having a great week, and that you're looking forward to the weekend.

It's freezing where I live, and temperatures are supposed to be in the minus forties Celsius with wind chills all weekend, so I will most likely be spending my weekend in front of the fireplace with a cup of tea and a book.

Today as we go into the weekend, I'd like to share a review with all of you of a book I ended up finding very disappointing. The synopsis for Fire and Flood had me very much looking forward to reading it, but after finishing it, I wasn't really wowed. However, I was curious enough about the story line to continue on with the second book, but it ended up being nothing like what I was hoping for.

Here's my review. 

Salt and Stone by Victoria Scott:

One Thing I Know by Kara Isaac Review

Good Morning Everyone :)

Thank you for joining me for another book review here on The Preppy Book Princess.

For the last few years I've had Kara Isaac's books on my tbr list, but I'd never actually taken the time to read one of them.

When I saw that one of her upcoming releases had been added to NetGalley, I knew it was the perfect time to give this author that I kept hearing about a chance.

Today I'd like to share with all of you what I thought about it.

One Thing I Know by Kara Isaac:

A fresh, heartfelt romance involving a case of mistaken identity when a ghostwriter masquerades as a relationship expert and the man who is determined to expose her holds not only the key to her success, but also her heart…

Rachel Somers is America’s #1 relationship coach—America just doesn’t know it. Rachel writes the books, but her Aunt Donna plays …

January 2019 Wrap Up

Hello Everyone :)

It always seems that at the end of a year I tend to get off track with doing my monthly wrap ups. In fact, I don't think I've ever posted a December monthly wrap up, as things get so busy around Christmas, and I'm more concerned with getting my yearly wrap ups finished and posted.

However, I really want to get back in to doing monthly wrap ups, and so today I'm here today with my first monthly wrap up of 2019!

I had a decent reading month. I read 14 books, and most of them were pretty enjoyable. However, I'm sad to say that I've already had my first one star read of the year, and it's only the first month! So that was a tad disappointing to put it mildly.

In January I spent a couple of weeks on vacation at Disney World, so I maybe didn't read as much I might in a normal month, but I still think I did pretty good.

As always, my wrap ups will be in the order I finished books, and not in the order of best to worst or worst to best.

February 2019 TBR

Hello Everyone :)

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

Since we're already into February, I thought today would be the perfect day to share with you all what books I plan on reading during this month.

To Best The Boys by Mary Weber:

I originally had this one on my November TBR I believe it was, but I decided to wait and read it closer to the release date instead. It's my first experience with a Mary Weber book, but I'm really enjoying it, even if it is vastly different from what I was expecting.

The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay:

I adore everything there is to adore about Katherine Reay's novels, and words cannot describe how excited I am to get to advance read her May 2019 release. Katherine's writing has no parallels, she's just that good, and the fact that this is about a bookstore only excites me more. 

Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson:

It took me way too long to get around …
