Blogmas Day Twelve: Books I'm Gifting Part Two

Happy Blogmas Day Twelve Everyone :)



I'm going to be honest and admit that I was struggling to write a blog post for today. I've had a really stressful week, and I haven't handled it the greatest, and I absolutely can't stand when I let my attitude and mindset affect me that way.


As tempting as it was to just skip a day of Blogmas because of it, that's not the way I want to be, and it's not fair for me to go back on my commitments, and so I'm here to write a post today anyways. :)


My blog is definitely a source of inspiration for me, and so today, on a day when I'm not having the greatest day, I'm going to look forward to spending some more time of the holiday season with all of you guys, as you all mean the world to me.


Last week for day six of Blogmas, I posted What Books I'm Gifting For Christmas Part One

For today's post, I'm going to do Part Two, and share with all of you guys some more books 
I will be gifting during the holidays this year.


How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell:



I'm the type of Aunt that definitely loves to encourage my nieces and nephews to read, and so I generally always include books as part of their gifts. My ten year old nephew is not really a fan of reading, and I'd heard this book is a good choice to encourage younger boys to get into books. I know he really liked this movie, so I'm hoping he'll enjoy the book as well.



I often find with younger kids that the books they get the most excited about are the ones that include something fun with the book like stickers or such.

I remember loving books as a child that included a cassette tape to listen to the story on. So this year I decided to purchase my two seven year old nephews, and my three year old nephew read along books with cds.



I picked Star Wars for two of them, and I got the other one an Iron Man one. I think these are adorable, and I'm pretty sure they'll be a hit.



Unblemished by Sara Ella:



I chose this one for my husband as the premise sounded like something he'd really be interested in, and I've heard nothing but good things about it from everyone who's read it. 


An Angel By Her Side by Ruth Reid:



I'm giving this one to my best friend as part of her Christmas gift, as I really think it sounds like something she'll enjoy, and we're always on the lookout for books we might enjoy reading as a book club read.


There is still a few other books I'm gifting this Christmas, but I don't want to accidentally spoil anyone's gift, so I won't be including them in a post just yet.


I thank you guys all for reading, and I hope to see you all again tomorrow for Blogmas Day Twelve!

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.


Midnight Sun by Trish Cook:
