Christian Girl Book Tag

Happy Friday Everyone :)


Thanks so much joining me on today on the Preppy Book Princess.


As I've mentioned before, I'm a huge fan of book tags. I think they're so fun, and I love reading other blogger's responses to the many different questions.


A couple of months ago, I'd actually searched the internet to see if such a thing as a Christian book tag existed, but alas it did not. :(


So imagine how excited I was to find this brand new book tag a couple of weeks ago that was created by ChristianYABooksandMore on Youtube, and I couldn't wait to take part in this one and share it with you all.


You can check out the original video here, and basically this tag is a series of questions accompanied by a scripture that you're supposed to pick a fitting book for.


I'm so excited so let's go ahead and get started!


1) Pick a book that inspired you in your walk with God or your faith in Jesus.

1 Corinthians 10:31 "Therefore whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."



I definitely have to go with the beloved classic inspirational novel, Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke for this one. I first read this novel as a young teenager of around twelve or thirteen years old, and I still remember the huge influence it had on my faith. Marty's character is thrown into a situation that she figures she can never move on from, but slowly learns that when you trust fully in our Heavenly Father, love can come from the most unexpected of places. This is still one of the most recommended books from me, and I love hearing the stories about other people its affected as much as it did me.



2) Pick a book that shows an ultimate sacrifice for someone else.


Hebrews 10:10: "And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all."


Ephesians 5:2: "and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."




I reviewed this upcoming inspirational novel on my blog on Wednesday, and I automatically thought of it when I saw this question. I can't really tell you why I thought of it without spoiling some plot points, but this question definitely defined Ivy's character to me.


3) Pick a book with your favorite love story in it.

1 John 4:8: "whoever does not love does not know God because God is love."



My favorite love story of all time is definitely Meg and Bo's in Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade. Their romance has to overcome so many obstacles, and they both have to walk by faith and not by sight before they find their way back to one another. As well, the circumstances that arise for them in the rest of the series intensify their love even more, and this continues to be one of my all time favorite books.


4) Pick a book with an epic good verse evil battle.

Ephesians 6:12: "for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."



I haven't actually read the adult version of these books, I've just read the kids version, but they're definitely about the ultimate battle between good and evil, and were definitely what came to mind as soon as I read this question.


5) Pick a book that has prayer and/or bible reading in it as an essential or major element for the story.


I Thessalonians 5: 16-18 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 





First Date by Krista McGee revolves around Addy Davidson, a teenager who's chosen to compete on a reality show for a date with the president's son. However, Addy is uncomfortable in the spotlight, and has no urge to represent her Christian school in such a contest. Relying on prayer and her faith will show Addy though that God has a plan for every path He leads us down, and I found Addy's influence on those around her and her devotion to her faith to be refreshing and definitely made this book a favorite.


6) Pick a book that personally challenged you or that has persecution for one's faith in it.

Matthew 5:10: "blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

Luke 6:22: "Blessed are you when people hate you, when the exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man."

1 John 3:13: "Do not be surprised my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you."

John 15:18: "if the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first."

2 Timothy 3:12: "In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." 



I'm honestly going to go with a classic answer for this one and choose The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan. Aside from it obviously being the ultimate story of persecution, it also personally challenged my faith in its descriptions of all the things that can pull us away from God and our walk with Him, and inspired me even more to stay true to God and faith through everything as much as I possibly can. 



7) Pick a book where the main character is different from everyone else, or stands out, or separates themselves apart for the plot.






Romans 12:14: "Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse."

1 Peter 2:9: "but you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."

1 Peter 1: 15-16: "but just as He who called you is holy, be holy in all you do; for it is written be holy, because I am holy."

Colossians 3:12: "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience."


I'm not quite sure if this book fits this question or not, but I'm going to go with it. In the Heritage of Lancaster County series by Beverly Lewis, Katie Lapp first feels out of place around her Amish family and peers, as she seems to have a much harder time sticking to their strict guidelines than does everyone else. However, when she leaves the Amish world for the Englisch world, she struggles even more trying to fit into a world that's unlike anything she grew up in. This beloved series is still one of my all time favorites, and I thought it worked pretty well as answer for this question.


And that's it for this tag guys! Thank you all so much for reading, and I tag any of you to do this tag who's interested in doing so! And please let me know if you decide to do this one, as book tags are some of my favorite posts to read on other's blogs. :)

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.

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.
