My Life In Books Tag

Happy Wednesday Everyone :)


It's been quite awhile since I last posted a book tag, so I decided today would be a good day to post the My Life In Books Tag. I don't know who's original tag this was, but I saw it over on The Girl Who Read Too Much, and you can see her post here.


The Questions:


1) Find A Book For Each Of Your Initials:

K: 




A: 


B: 


2) Count Your Age Along Your Bookshelf--Which Book Is It?



I haven't read this one yet, but I'm really wanting too as I love Katherine Reay's writing style. 


3) Pick A Book Set In Your City/State/Country:


It's next to impossible to find many books that are set in my province, and even more so in my city, but Anne Of Green Gables is one of the most well known books set in Canada, and one of my all time favorites. 



4) Pick A Book That Represents A Destination You Would Love To Travel To:


I'm kind of weird when it comes to travelling, as I don't have most people's dreams of visiting far off places. I'm kind of a scar…

Then Came You by Becky Wade Review

Happy Monday Everyone :)


Sometimes there's nothing I love more than diving into a new series by a favorite author, and it's even better when you discover that the prequel novella in the new series is a free read on Kindle and Ibooks.

As many of you know, Becky Wade is one of my all time favorite authors as I love her warm, inviting writing style, and the way she writes about Christian characters that aren't perfect. I adored her Porter Family series, which I've talked about a lot on my blog, and I couldn't wait to start her Bradford Sisters series. However before I could, I needed to read the prequel novella to the series titled, Then Came You, and today I'd like to share what I thought about it with all of you guys.

The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrell Review

Good Morning Guys :)


Isn't it glorious that it's finally Friday? Of course, in my case it doesn't mean much as I still work tomorrow, and I have a big meeting I have to lead, but there's just something about Friday that always leaves me feeling excited anyways.


I'm also excited about the fact that January so far has been such a good reading month for me. Not only with the amount of books I've finished, but also in the fact that I haven't read one bad book this month. I love when that happens as it keeps you from falling into a reading slump, and keeps you motivated to stay on track with your reading goals and resolutions.


Today, I'd like to share with you guys a review of one of the really good books I read this month, and that is The Heart Between us by Lindsay Harrell.

After Christmas Book Haul

Hello Everyone :)


I'm so excited you decided to join me today on The Preppy Book Princess!


Over the last couple of weeks, I've done quite a bit of book buying. See, I happened to get a few quite generous gift cards for Christmas, plus I had quite a few swagbucks accumulated that I decided to cash out, and since there's been quite a few books on my to buy list for a long time, I figured why not go ahead and order them.


And today I'm excited to share with you guys all the lovely titles I was able to pick up for myself :)



The first book I ordered was Remembrance by Suzie Waltner. I had the pleasure of meeting Suzie, a self published Christian author, at RT Booklovers in 2016, and her books had been on my TBR list ever since. As I ended up with an amazon gift card, I definitely jumped at the chance to order this one.




I also ordered Hometown Girl by Courtney Walsh from Amazon. I've been wanting to read her inspirational novels for a long time, and I've featured a couple …

My Not So Super Sweet Life by Rachel Harris Review

Happy Monday Everyone :)



Thanks for joining me today on The Preppy Book Princess!


Anyone who knows me knows that I love reading contemporaries. There's nothing I enjoy more than a swoon worthy romance that leaves me with a big smile on my face, and over the last few years there's definitely a list of authors I've come to turn to for these amazing stories. Kasie West, Ali Novak, Becky Wade, Katie McGarry, Lauren Morrill, Morgan Matson, Rachel Hauck, Denise Hunter....are all ones that I've come to anticipate their new releases. And another author that's for sure on this list is Rachel Harris! Her YA books are always a fun retreat from my busy schedule, and leave me with the warm fuzzies.


Last week I finally had the chance to read the last book in her time travelling, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series, and it was exactly the lovely story I was hoping it would be.


Today I can't wait to tell you guys all about it, as I know a lot of people have read the first two …

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir Review

Happy Friday Everyone!


I actually have a Friday off for a change, which is rare for me, and so I've got plenty of errands and such to get done today.

The Proposal by Becky Wade Review

Hello Everyone :)


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


I recently finally got to read a novella from one of my all time favorite series, The Porter Family series by Becky Wade.


And today I'd like to share with you all my thoughts and opinions on it.

The Ice Cream Book Tag and My 30th Birthday!

It's the fifteen of January guys, and that officially means it's my 30th birthday!


I've been blessed to celebrate with friends the last few days, and I've got some fun plans with my family later tonight.


I definitely plan on telling you guys all about my celebrations in a later DITL post, but for today I figured that The Ice Cream Book Tag was the perfect post to celebrate my birthday with.


This tag was originally created by Alexa Loves Books and Super Space Chick, both on Youtube, and I think it sounds like a really fun tag to partake in.


Vanilla: A Book You Wish Had More Flavor

Kiss Crush Collide by Christina Meredith



I had such high hopes for this book, as the premise sounded sooo good, but it felt like it was missing something, and that the story just didn't come together very well. Overall, it was a bit of a letdown, and it definitely needed more flavor.

I've definitely gotta go with Narn…
