Blogmas Day Sixteen: Series of 2017 Results

Hello Everyone :)


I hope you're all doing well, and I thank you for joining me for the sixteenth day of Blogmas.



Last year for Blogmas Day 22, I had posted about the series I wanted to finish in 2017, and you can find that post here.


For today's Blogmas post, I thought it would be fun to see how well I actually did on finishing the series that I'd planned to finish throughout this year.


First off, I had planned to finish The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, and I'm sad to say I did not accomplish this. I have yet to read Winter, and I think it's mainly because I'm sad to see one of my all time favorite series come to an end.


Next was The Selection series by Kiera Cass, and I did actually accomplish this. I wasn't too crazy about The Crown overall, but I still did really like the rest of the books in the series.


Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is an all time favorite book of mine, but I'm sorry to say that I didn't get around to reading the rest of the trilogy like I'd originally planned to this year.


The Maze Runner series by James Dashner was another series that I'd planned on finishing, but honestly this series doesn't really interest me as much as it used to, and I'm not sure if I'll ever actually get around to reading the last book or not.


The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella was another series I'd really wanted to finish in 2017, but alas, it also did not happen. This is one I'm really hoping to have a chance to get to at the start of 2018.


And the last series I'd slated for 2017 I did actually finish, and that was Raised By Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Unfortunately, I was not impressed with how she chose to conclude this series, and I was left feeling massively disappointed. I'd definitely recommend The Naturals over this series.


So all in all, I didn't do too great on accomplishing finishing these series in 2017, but I did end up finishing a couple of series that weren't on my original list, so I don't think I did too too bad all things considered.


Were there any series you guys finished in 2017? I'd love to hear about it if you did.


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

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.
