Looking Back On RT Booklovers, and Thoughts On Other Book Conventions

Happy Monday Everyone :)

I'm not gonna lie, I find myself dragging a bit today. First off, it's still rainy and cold where I live in Saskatchewan, and I've literally been trying to take blog and bookstagram pics for over a week, but have honestly had no sun to do so. As such, I've had to keep delaying posts I had planned, and going with others instead. Secondly, I attended a really fun birthday party for one of my co worker's daughters last night, and it was a lot of fun, but I left completely exhausted as it went pretty late, but I'm so glad I had the opportunity to attend.

Thirdly, today is actually supposed to be my day off, but I have to conduct a three hour training session on a roll out of a new program at work, and so because of all this, this morning I'm kind of just taking it easy.

Since my original plans for blog posts fell through thanks to our dreary blustery weather, I thought it might be fun today to look back on last year's RT Booklovers convention, since this year's starts tomorrow.

I've been seeing so many posts all over Instagram and Twitter about Yallwest; which of course was this last weekend, RT Booklovers; which starts tomorrow; and BEA and Bookcon, which are coming up in the next few weeks.

Unfortunately, we will most likely not be attending any book conventions this year. The only one that might be plausible for us to attend is Yallfest in November, and I don't foresee this happening right now. I've definitely been suffering with a little bit of the green eyed monster every time I read about all the amazing things happening at this year's convention, and so to help myself with that I thought I would love to share some pics of the fabulous authors I got to meet at the RT convention last April.

While so many people strictly attend book conventions for the free books and swag (and yes that part is amazing)! for me the best part was definitely getting to meet so many of my favorite authors, and letting them know how much their books have meant to me.

I'd recommend this experience for anyone who's a fan of reading, as there's nothing that compares to getting to meet your fave authors in person.

I definitely can't wait to attend another book convention in the near future, and here's hoping we'll be able to attend one again in 2018!

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.

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…

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.
