Blogmas Day Nineteen: What I Included In My #TBTBSANTA Box

Hello Everyone :)


I hope you're all doing well, and I thank you all for joining me today for the nineteenth day of Blogmas:





I've been wanting to share with you all what I included in my Broke and Bookish Secret Santa box this year, but I wanted to wait until I knew for sure that my person opened it, just in case I ended up spoiling something for them through this post.


She ended up opening everything a couple of days ago, and so I can now definitely go ahead and share with all of you guys what I included in my box this year.


I won't be sharing who my person was, as she doesn't have a blog, and I don't want to include her social medias in case she's not comfortable with me doing so, but she seems like a really sweet person, and I had a lot of fun putting together her package from the info she included in her questionnaire. 




This is the whole picture of everything I ended up including this year.

For books I went with: 

Replica by Lauren Oliver

Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong

In a Dark, Dark, Wood by Ruth Ware

The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin

All of which were from her wishlist. 




She had mentioned in her form that she'd recently gotten a new kitten, and so I definitely wanted to send something along for him. I chose a package of squeeze ups, which are my cat's favorite treat ever, and also, a little pack of two adorable toy mice with bells on them.




For goodies, I really tried to cater to what she had listed as favorites on her form.

She had mentioned loving adult coloring books and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so I was really happy when I stumbled across a Buffy the Vampire Slayer adult coloring book, and I knew I needed to include it.


I also sent along a Gilmore Girls magnetic bookmark that says "Drink Coffee Like A Gilmore", and loose tea that's inspired from The Vampire Diaries.  I also included a pocketbac hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works, and a little boxed set from Running Press that features a tea infuser in the shape of a book.


Lastly, I rounded out the package with some edible treats, and I included a chocolate peanut butter cup coffee, dark chocolate coconut lindor chocolates, chocolate covered spoons for coffee, white chocolate raspberry shortbread cookies, and a dark chocolate peppermint marshmallow pop.


And then I found the cutest nutcracker ballet paper to wrap everything up in:



All in all, I had so much fun participating in #TBTBSANTA again this year, and I'll be looking forward to next year. If you guys haven't participated before, I highly recommend you think about doing so next year, as it's a lot of fun, and a great way to meet other bloggers, and other book loving people.


Thanks so much for reading guys! I'll see you all tomorrow for Blogmas Day Twenty :)

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.

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.
