Blogmas Day Ten: Christmas Cracker Book Tag

Welcome to Blogmas Day Ten Everyone :)

I spent some time over the last few days looking up some fun and festive book tags, and I stumbled across The Christmas Cracker Book Tag, created by Lucy from Queen of Contemporaries.

I originally found this tag on Liz's blog, Travel In Retrospect, and I thought it looked like such a fun one, that I knew I had to include it for today's Blogmas post.

Pick a book with a wintery cover:

I always think of Karen Swan's book covers for wintery covers.

There's just something about her covers that always look so magical and majestic, and they always seem to just embody holiday spirit. Whoever the design team is for these covers does an amazing job!

Pick a book you're likely to buy as a present:

I don't know if there's a specific book I'm likely to buy as a present, as it definitely depends on the person. I really love purchasing autographed copies of books as gifts though, as there's something so exciting about giving someone a book signed by their favorite author. For the last couple of Christmases I've purchased my hubby a couple of signed books; one by Sarah J Maas and one by Felicia Day and he was over the moon about both of them. 

Pick a festive themed book:

So many choices for this category, but I think I'm going to go with one of my all time favorite holiday reads, A Texas Legacy Christmas by Diann Mills:

There's just something about this sweet story that always pulls me in, and I've read it more times than I can remember. I'm not a huge fan of the rest of the books in the series, but I really really adore this one. 

Pick a book you can curl up with by the fireplace:

Definitely Twilight. It's still one of my favorite books, and for some reason it's one I really enjoy during blustery weather, when I can curl up with a cup of tea in my favorite reading spot.

Pick a book you want to read over the festive period:

Definitely A Cliche Christmas by Nicole Dees. I love that this focuses around a woman who writes screenplays for TV movies, and it just really sounds like something I'd enjoy

Pick a book that's so good it gives you chills:

Life After by Katie Ganshert! I'm still thinking about this amazing book even though its been about six weeks since I finished it.

Pick a book going on your Christmas wishlist:

It probably sounds terrible that I have so many books on my current wish list that's it hard to pick just one. I'd really love to receive Paper Hearts by Ali Novak, Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergen, and My Unscripted Life by Lauren Morrill.

Thanks so much for reading today guys! If any of you decide to do this tag please let me know as I'd love to read your answers!

I hope you all have a great day, and I'll see you all again tomorrow for Blogmas Day Eleven!

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.

I've seen literally hund…

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.
