End of Summer Book Haul

Hey Guys!

Thanks for joining me today on the Preppy Book Princess!

As we say goodbye to summer, and welcome in my all time favorite season, I thought it would be fun to share with you all the books I purchased during the last few weeks of summer. 

First things first, I made another trip to my favorite used bookstore, and while I haven't had as much luck here the last few times as I used to, I still found some good books, and as always, I was happy to support our local animal shelter where all proceeds from book sales here go.

Janette Oke was one of the first inspirational authors I ever read, but I actually have never owned too many of her books as our local library always had a huge collection of them, and so I always just borrowed them from there. I was excited to find a few of hers at the used bookstore this time though, and so I ended up grabbing When Comes The Spring and Once Upon A Summer.

I kid you not, every single time I go to this bookstore, I check for Debbie Macomber titles that I don't already own, and I generally almost always have luck finding some, and that was the case again this time.

I was able to find 74 Seaside Avenue from my all time favorite Cedar Cove series, and as well, The Inn at Rose Harbor which is the first book in the Rose Harbor series, which is actually a spin off of the Cedar Cove series. I have read this Rose Harbor novel before, but I'd never finished the series so I'm looking forward to rereading it, and finally continuing on with this beloved series.

Lastly, I was quite impressed to find some more inspirational fiction novels during this visit, and I grabbed The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado, which I haven't read before although I did really enjoy his other books. As well, I picked up The Christmas Promise by Donna VanLiere from her Christmas Hope series, and while I have read this whole series, I'm currently trying to collect them all as they're definitely a favorite, and so I was ecstatic to find this one on the 50 cent shelf.

My hubby actually started his Christmas shopping early this year like I did, and placed a big order with Book Outlet. The day the order came I was having a really rough day due to some negative circumstances at work, so he surprised me with giving me one of the books he ordered right then and there

I love this sweet contemporary by Jenny Han, and I had yet to own my own copy of it. I honestly can't wait to see this movie :)

Lastly, and possibly most exciting of all, I treated myself to a couple of inspirational fiction novels that I ordered from indigo.

I ordered True To You by Becky Wade, who's literally one of my all time favorite authors ever. And I also ordered A Cliche Christmas by Nicole Deese which literally sounds like something that was written with me in mind. After all, it's about a woman who writes screenplays for TV Christmas movies, and ahhhh I can't wait to read both of these books. 

Thanks so much for reading guys! I enjoyed getting to share my recent purchases with all of you.

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.
