Fruit of the Spirit Book Tag

Happy Wednesday Guys :)


I'm so excited about today's post, as I discovered another Christian themed book tag on Youtube last week, and I couldn't wait to take part in it.


This is a relatively new tag, and it was created by Jessi Dawn on Youtube. It's also a really recent tag,  created within the last two weeks or so, and I can't wait to go ahead and get started.


The tag consists of naming the fruit of the spirit, and matching the questions she's listed for each fruit.


Love: Name your top three favorite book couples:



This one was really hard to narrow down to three, as I have a ridiculous amount of favorite book couples, but these are the three I've decided to go with. Etienne and Anna from Anna and the French Kiss, Caymen and Xander from The Distance Between Us, and Meg and Bo from Undeniably Yours. 


Joy: Name a character who went through horrible trials. Were they joyful? Would you have been if you went through the same?



For this one I picked John and Nora from True To You by Becky Wade. I don't want to say what their struggles were, as I don't want to spoil this book for anyone, but I'm not sure I could have handled the situations as well as they did. 


Peace: Name a book where a river or body of water is important to the story

Submerged by Dani Pettrey



As this one deals with deep sea diving, I thought it was appropriate for this question. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend doing so as it's one of my all time favorite suspense series. 



Patience: Name a book you anticipated/are anticipating reading:

Storm Front by Susan May Warren



I can't wait to see where Susan May Warren takes her characters next, and I'm definitely looking forward to reading more about Ty and Brette as I loved them in a previous book.


Kindness: Name a selfless character:

Lily from Coming Home by Kimberley Rae Jordan



Lily is dealing with some horrific news in this novel, that she knows will affect her friends and family just as much as her. I was really impressed with how selfless her character is with putting their needs above her own, even if it wasn't the best decision she makes throughout the course of the story. 


Goodness:  Name a book with a plot twist so shocking you were like "oh my goodness"

See How They Run by Ally Carter



I was completely blown away by the cliff hanger in this one, and left hanging until the third book was released. I always find that Ally Carter has a way of keeping you anxiously anticipating her next book release, and this one was definitely one of the best examples. 


Faithfulness:  Name an author whose books you will always buy without question:

I could probably go with several for this question, but I definitely have to pick Kasie West. I love how she's able to write amazing contemporary young adult romances while still having her books be clean reads, and how swoon worthy she always makes her romances. Plus, I've yet to dislike any of her main character's, and that's a pretty amazing feat considering how many books she's written so far. 


Gentleness: Show your most damaged book

Most of my book's aren't really what I'd call damaged, although I definitely have some that are very well loved. However, a few years ago my aunt was going through boxes of stuff that had been my grandparent's, and she found a children's book that had been gifted to my dad on Christmas in 1953. (As the inscription found on the first page states.) It was apparently brought back from Scotland by some friend's of the family. My dad ended up passing it along to me, since he knows how much I love books, and I treasure this beloved book so much, despite the fact that there's not much left of it.



It's so neat to have a piece of my dad's childhood, and I can't wait to read this to my own kids someday. 

Self Control:  Name the strangest place you've ever read because you couldn't wait any longer to continue the story:

The hallway of my final undergraduate university exam. I was always the type of student who refused to study the morning of an exam, unless it was just a quick review of a terminology or two. I'd had one of my earliest prof's instill in me that you should know it way before the day of the exam, otherwise you're just cramming and losing all the actual information you've put into your mind. So the morning I wrote my last ever uni final, while all the other student's were cramming last minute spread out with tons of papers in front of the exam room, I was reading The Hunger Games for the first time. It was a smallish class so our prof knew us all by name, and he walked past me and said "Kirby, are you all ready to write this one?" Haha it still makes me laugh to this day, and I definitely had to include it here for this answer. 


And that's the end of the tag guys! I highly recommend checking out Jessi Dawn's original video here, as I'm always excited to discover more Christian bloggers and booktubers. 

As well, I tag any of you guys that are interested in doing this tag! Thanks so much for reading guys, and I'll see you all again on Friday where I'll be sharing my February reading wrap up.

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.
