Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters I'd name a child/cat/dog/car/ etc After.

Happy Tuesday guys!

I enjoyed Top Ten Tuesday so much last week, that I decided to go ahead and take part again this week.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish, and here's the link to the main page if you're interested in becoming a part of it:

Today's topic is: Ten Characters I'd Name A Child/Cat/Dog/Car/ etc After, and I think it's going to be a really fun one.

First, Characters I'd Name a Pet after:

1) Katsa from Kristin Cashore's Graceling:

I have to start with Katsa, since it is actually what we named our adorable black and white kitten almost a year ago.

She's grown so much since this picture, but this was taken right after we decided on her name. We tried several different book characters, but Katsa is the one she loved right away, and so is what we ended up going with.

2) Rose from Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy:

Rose was actually the first name we agreed up on to name our kitty, but she didn't seem to like it, and so we ended up with Katsa. However, Rose is still a name I'd use for a kitten in the future.

3) Celaena from Sarah J. Maas' Throne Of Glass:

I have not personally read this series, but it's one of my hubby's favorites. It was his name suggestion for our kitten, but once again, she didn't seem to like it, and we went with Katsa instead.

4) Day from Marie Lu's Legend trilogy:

For some reason, I've just loved this name since I first read that book, and will definitely consider it for a pet name in the future.

5) Cress from Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles:

Cress was one of my favorite characters in that series, and I loved how unique her name was. I could totally see myself naming a pet this in the future.

Characters I'd name my children after:

1) Etienne from Stephanie Perkins' Anna and the French Kiss:

I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with both this book and this name, if Neil and I ever end up having a son, this would be my number one name pick, but somehow I don't think he's going to end up agreeing to this lol.

2) Maxon from Kiera Cass' The Selection:

I've always loved Maxon's character, and his name. I could totally see myself using this a potential name for a son in the future.

3) Clary from Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments:

This is another name that I've loved right from the start of this series. I think that not only is it an awesome name, but it would be pretty awesome to name my future daughter after a kick butt shadowhunter.

4) Isabel or "Belly" from Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty:

Probably a bit of a weird choice, but on top of always having loved the name Isabel, I also love how her nickname is Belly. 

5) Hadley from Jennifer E Smith's The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight:

I love both this unique name, and her awesome character in one of my all time favorite books. I would totally use this a child's name someday.

That's my picks for this week guys. I can't wait to read everyone else's!

  1. Cress would be a very good cat name, wouldn't it! :)

    Lauren @ Always Me

    1. Definitely :) I have a feeling it would be the perfect name for a high spirited cat.

  2. Great list!

Midnight Sun by Trish Cook Review

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope you're all having a great week, and I thank you for joining me today on The Preppy Book Princess 👸

A few weeks ago I saw the trailer for the upcoming movie, Midnight Sun, and I was really intrigued by it. Since it releases next month, and I definitely wanted to read the book before I saw the movie, I took some time this last weekend to read this relatively quick read.

And today I'd like to share with you all what my thoughts were on it.

Hallmark Book To Movie Adaptations For Christmas 2017 :)

Good Morning Guys, and Welcome Back to The Preppy Book Princess.

I'm Kirby, and as always, I'm excited to be hear with y'all!

Is anyone else's morning off to a bit of a rough start? I just managed to break my husband's favorite glass, and on top of feeling awful over doing so, I just got the fun job of cleaning up itty bitty pieces of broken glass all over my kitchen floor, and mopping up the milk that seemed to work its way into every crook and crevice in my kitchen.

Oh well, nothing to do about it but move on, and hope and pray that the rest of the day can only go uphill from here.

So considering this morning's events had me not in the greatest mood, I thought today's blog post would be the perfect way to cheer me up.

If any of you aren't familiar with my blog, on top of loving books, cooking, and preppy fashion, I'm a huge fan of made for TV Christmas movies, with the Hallmark Channel's almost always being my favorites.

I've seen literally hund…

Once Upon A Prince: Book To Hallmark Movie

Happy Thursday Guys :)

As most of you know, I usually don't post on Thursdays, but I had to make an exception this week.

I recently discovered that one of my favorite inspirational novels is becoming a Hallmark Channel original movie, and I couldn't wait to share the news with all of you guys.

That book is, as you can tell by the title of my post, Once Upon A Prince by Rachel Hauck:

Synopsis from goodreads:

Once Upon a Prince, the first novel in the Royal Wedding series by bestselling author Rachel Hauck, treats you to a modern-day fairy tale.

Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess---just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn't going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life.

The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simon's Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duti…
