Books I'm Taking With Me On Vacation

Happy Wednesday Everyone, and Thank You So Much For Joining Me Today on the Preppy Book Princess!

I'm excited to say that while you're all reading this post, I'll actually be away for a few days with my hubby. To say I've been looking forward to this short trip would be a huge understatement! Neil and I have both been so busy the last couple of weeks, that we decided a few days away together to rest and relax were definitely in order, and it seemed only fitting that this coincided with our four year anniversary!

In fact guys, I'm happy to say that today and tomorrow mark two very important anniversaries.

First of all, on this day September 20th, back in 2015 is when I first started my blog! So today The Preppy Book Princess officially turns two years old! And I can't begin to describe how much these two years have meant to me. My blog has been a source of joy and inspiration for me through some pretty rough times, and I'm glad that I get to continue to use it as a way to shine a light for Jesus to the rest of the world. As well, my blog has affronted me many opportunities for which I'm forever grateful, and I want to take today to thank you all for your continued support of little corner on the internet. :)

Secondly, tomorrow, September 21st, is officially four years since I chose to say I do to my best friend. I can't wait to celebrate Neil's and I four year anniversary tomorrow, and I'm very thankful we were able to get some time away together in which to do so.

And now, I'd like to take a moment to share with you all the fabulous sounding books that I took with me for this quick little getaway :)

The House On Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright:


This in an inspirational/suspense novel that I currently have from Netgalley, and while it sounds ridiculously scary, it also sounds amazing, and I've already heard great things about it. As you guys all know, I'm a huge fan of Colleen Coble and Dani Pettrey, and this one has been compared to their's, so hopefully I'll end up loving it as well.


Lizzy and Jane by Katherine Reay:


I'm so enjoying this Austen inspired inspirational contemporary novel by Katherine Reay. I honestly always seem to love reading "foodish" books like this one definitely is, and while I'm still not too too far into it, I've really loved what I've read so far.


A Second Christmas Wish by Kathryn Freeman:


This is another one that I currently have from Netgalley, and I honestly cannot wait to read this. This contemporary fiction novel about a woman and her seven year old son who learn to love the Christmas season when a new man enters their lives. It sounds like the perfect read to curl up with on these beautiful, blistery fall days we've been having as of late, and I have a feeling I'm going to end up loving this one.

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.
