5 Inspirational Reads I Just Added To My TBR List #2

Happy Wednesday Everyone :)

Thanks so much for joining me today on the Preppy Book Princess!

A few weeks ago I had done a post on 5 Inspirational Reads I Just Added to my TBR List, which you can find here, and today I thought it would be fun to share another post since I recently just added a bunch more inspirational books to my list.

The Christy Award nominees were recently announced, and browsing the finalists made my TBR pile grow substantially. There's just so many amazing sounding books in this year's categories. If you're unfamiliar, the Christy Awards honor and promote excellence in Christian fiction, and here's the link to this year's nominees, so you can check out all the amazing sounding books yourself.

For today though, I'd like to share the five books that I'm most excited about reading after scrolling through this year's nominees. 

1) The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson:

This is actually the only novel of the three nominated in the contemporary romance category that I haven't already read. You guys know that contemporaries are my ultimate favorite books, and the fact that this one is set in Prince Edward Island makes it even more appealing, as I don't too often find a ton of books that are set in Canada.

2) The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof:

On top of this book being nominated in the historical romance category, I've also heard about it from almost every single inspirational book blogger I follow, and I have yet to hear a bad thing about it. I know it revolves around the circus, a lion tamer, and a nurse, and it honestly sounds unlike anything I've read before, and I'm definitely hoping to pick this one up ASAP.

3) If You're Gone by Brittany Goodwin:

I'm always on the hunt for new YA inspirational books, and this one about a girl who's boyfriend vanishes on the night of his graduation, and her corresponding search for answers sounds amazing, and I definitely can't wait to pick it up.

4) Unblemished by Sara Ella:

This YA fantasy novel about a girl who's face is half covered by a huge birthmark, and who's used to living in the shadows, until one night when her mother fails to come home and suddenly everything changes in her life faster than she ever could have imagined, once again sounds unlike anything I've ever read before, and inspirational fantasy is definitely something I'm interested in starting to read.

5) A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander:

I already had the first book in the Belmont Mansion series on my TBR, but after reading the description of this one focusing on a young violinist who's denied entry into the Nashville Philharmonic by a young conductor who soon needs her help to finish his symphony, this series has now crawled even higher up on my TBR list.

I'm so excited about all of these new additions to my TBR list, and also about the broad spectrum of titles that are now being published by Christian publishing houses. I hope you guys enjoyed this post about current additions to my TBR list, and I hope to do a Christmas centered one of these in the upcoming weeks.

Thanks so much for reading guys! Enjoy this beautiful day, and I'll see you all again on Friday :)

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…
