Summer Book Haul #bookhaul #tbrlist

Good Morning Everyone, and Welcome Back to the Preppy Book Princess!

I'm Kirby, and I feel that I need to start today's post with an apology for how long it's been since my last post.

Unfortunately, as I've mentioned in previous posts, work has been downright crazy lately, and with me having so much more responsibility on my shoulders now, I haven't had as much free time as I'm used to. 

However, I'm definitely working through the process of figuring out how to balance everything, and I'm committed to finding the time to getting my blog back on a regular updating schedule.

For the last few weeks, I haven't had much of a life outside of work, but this week I'm determined to figure out a balance, and I hope to have my usual three posts posted, and I'm going to take some time to head to the beach with my hubby, where aside from relaxing I hope to also get some awesome bookstagram photos.

Anyways, long back story over, today I'm here with my summer book haul.

As many of you guys know, I'd been on a book buying ban basically since November, and I was so over the moon to finally be able to buy some new books. Neil and I both enjoyed picking some new ones out, and I'm excited to share them all with you guys today.

This is our collective haul, and there's a lot of amazing ones in here I can't wait to dive into!
One of my first picks was the newest release by Sarah Dessen, who's one of my all time favorites. I loved her last book Saint Anything, and I'm really hoping to also be blown away by this one. 

As many of you already know, my all time favorite author is Debbie Macomber. I read this one shortly after it's release a couple of years ago, but I'd never had my own copy of it. I've gotten into the habit of browsing bookshelves at pretty much every store I go into, cause you just never know where you're going to find a hidden gem. That's definitely what happened here, as this book was on the shelf at Dollarama for 4 dollars!!! I definitely couldn't pass that up, and so I went ahead and grabbed it.

This one was Neil's pick, as he's a huge Sarah J Maas fan, and I've really loved the books I've read by her as well. We were both pretty stoked to learn that Indigo has an exclusive edition of this book which made this purchase even better, as we don't often get the exclusive editions in Canada, like the American stores like Barnes and Noble and Target do.

This is probably the one I'm the most excited about from all our purchases, and that's simply because I love the world that Ridley Pearson has created in these novels. As a huge Disney fan, these books are the perfect fit for me, and I can't wait to see how he wraps up this series that's been a part of my life for quite some time. 

Neil also chose books one and two in the Summoner series because he loved the covers and the description. I've been hearing so much about these books from blogs and bookstagram lately, so I'm also excited to read this ones as well. 

Lastly, I picked Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine, as I'm completely fascinated by the synopsis and this world building. This one is definitely near the top of my TBR list right now, and I'm hoping it lives up to the hype I've created in my mind for it.

And that's a wrap on my summer book haul. If any of you guys have read any of these, I'd love to hear if you enjoyed them!

Thanks so much for reading guys, and I hope to see you all again on Wednesday for a new book review. :)

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…

Marry Me At Christmas by Susan Mallery Review

Happy Monday Everyone :)

And Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians.

We actually had our family thanksgiving at my mom's yesterday, as that worked out better for everyone's schedules, and it was a wonderful day. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday after Christmas of course, and I always enjoy just having some down time for visiting, eating delicious food, and watching holiday movies.

And speaking of holiday movies, we're literally so close to the start of Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas. And this last week, I finally got the chance to read Susan Mallery's Marry Me At Christmas, which is of course being adapted as one of Hallmark's Christmas movies this year.

I really adored this book, and it's definitely one of my favorites in the Fool's Gold series. I definitely wanted to share my thoughts about it with all of you guys, so let's go ahead and quickly review it.
