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.



Chocolate: A Long Book, or an Immersive World that you enjoyed indulging in.



I've definitely gotta go with Narnia for this one. Even though I've read hundreds and hundreds of books since I read Narnia for the first time, it's still one of the most immersive worlds I've ever read about, and still seems like the most magical place imaginable. 


Strawberry: A Romance that was super sweet



Honestly, is anyone truly surprised to see me choose this one?



Ice Cream Sundae: A Book encompassing all the elements you love



My favorite trope is "the famous or royal person falling in love with the regular person" so this novel by Rachel Hauck was right up my alley. Plus, I loved how effortlessly the faith element was blended in, and that it focuses on travel to a small European country. All of which I'm basically obsessed with. I can't wait to hear more about Hallmark adapting this one into a movie.



Milkshake: A book that blends genres



I wasn't actually the biggest fan of Rosamund Hodge's Cruel Beauty, but I did appreciate the way she was able to blend a retelling into a fantasy setting.



Sprinkles: A book with a colorful cover



No idea what this book's about yet, but the cover really reminded me of sprinkles 



Ice Cream Cake: A book worthy of a celebration

Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade



I just loved Meg and Bo's story so much :)



Ice cream cookie sandwich or three scoops on a cone: a book with multiple perspectives



Part of what made me love this one so much was the variety of perspectives it was told from. It really added an extra depth to the story.



Waffle Cone: a book you felt compelled to read very quickly



I enjoyed each of the novellas included in this collection so much that I breezed through it pretty quickly.


Pint: a book you set aside but plan on going back to later

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I feel I wasn't in the right frame of mind when I started reading this, but I definitely plan on trying again soon.



Your preference: Cup or cone?

I enjoy both, but lately I've been choosing a cup.


Your preference: Favorite Flavor?

Cheesecake or cookie dough


Your preference: Toppings yes or no?

Yes, definitely. I especially love reese's pieces


Your preference: Favorite Local Ice Cream Creamery?

Sadly, I don't actually have a favorite local ice cream place. We generally only go out for ice cream when we're on vacation, otherwise we just make our own sundaes at home.


Best shared with friends: Who do you tag?

Anyone who wants to do this tag :)


Thanks so much for reading guys, and for celebrating my 30th birthday with me today!


I love you all so much, and I'll see you all again on Wednesday for more bookish fun.

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.
