YA Releases of May 2017

Guys why does it always seem to happen that the most amazing books release while you're on a book buying ban?

I've been on a book buying ban since Christmas and my birthday, as I received so many incredible sounding books for both that it seemed ridiculous to go by more for awhile.

As well, my hubby and I are doing a "living below our means" challenge that we've been working on since Christmas, in order to pay down a bunch of our debt. While it's definitely been challenging, we've made so much progress and I can't wait to accomplish our goal in a couple of months, and be able to get back to buying books.

And I can guarantee you that all the ones I'm going to mention today that are releasing this month will be the top ones on my list to pick up come that day!

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas:

While I have yet to read A Court of Mist and Fury, I loved A Court of Thorns and Roses, and I can't wait to continue on with this series. ACOMAF is already on our bookshelf, so I'm hoping it will be on my one of upcoming monthly TBR's, and then I can move onto this one as soon as I'm able to pick it up.

Flame In The Mist by Renee Ahdieh:

I have not actually read her Wrath and the Dawn series yet, but it's been on TBR list forever. And this new release of her's I've heard so many good things about already, that I just know I have to read it ASAP.

Windfall by Jennifer E Smith:

Jennifer E Smith is one of those authors in my opinion that couldn't write a bad book if she tried. I don't even know what this one's about, and yet it's still at the top of my books I need to pick up ASAP list.

Textrovert by Lindsay Summers:

I first read this quirky, adorable contemporary on Wattpad under it's original title The Cell Phone Swap, and I loved it! I can't wait to pick up the published version and see how it compares to Lindsay's original story.

Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han:

Lastly, I of course have to mention the conclusion to Jenny Han's Lara Jean trilogy. I was one of those people who was extremely excited when she announced that she'd be writing one more book in this series that she hadn't originally planned on. I've loved Jenny Han's novels ever since I first picked up The Summer I Turned Pretty back in 2011, and my opinions stayed the same ever since then. I'm beyond belief disappointed that I'm missing meeting her at RT Booklovers this year, but I'm holding out hope that I'll get to meet her one day soon, and tell her just how much I love love love her books. :)

Those are the May releases I'm most excited about guys! I'd love to hear which ones you're the most excited about, as there's so many amazing ones releasing this month.

Thanks so much for reading, and I'll see you all in my next post.

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…

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.
