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 duties, and his family's tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna's aid under the fabled Lover's Oak, he is blindsided by love.

Their lives are worlds apart. He's a royal prince. She's an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel's coronation. It's the ultimate choice. His kingdom or her heart? God's will or their own?

I've mentioned this particular book quite a few times on my blog, and I'm planning on continuing on with the rest of the series this month. I adored Nathaniel and Susanna's characters, especially the numerous selfless acts they both perform for the sake of their family's and Nathaniel's country. Rachel Hauck has a way of writing a story that really pulls you in, and makes you feel everything that the character's are feeling, and I can't wait to see how Hallmark adapts this beautiful story for its small screen debut.

You can find my original review of the book here, and you can also find my book club's discussion of it here.

The Hallmark Channel royal movies have long been some of my all time favorites, and I'm really excited to see one of my favorite stories be added to this fabulous lineup. Once Upon A Prince will debut on Hallmark Channel on Saturday April 7th, and will star Megan Park as Susanna, and Jonathan Keltz as Nathaniel.

If you're interested in hearing more about this exciting upcoming movie, check out the official Hallmark page here.

I love getting to share about beloved books becoming Hallmark movies with all of you guys as soon as I hear about them, and I look forward to more fabulous movies from Hallmark channel in 2018!

I hope you'll all be tuning in to Hallmark Channel on April 7th, and if you haven't read this book yet, I definitely encourage you to do so!

Thanks so much for joining me today for this bonus post on The Preppy Book Princess, and I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow for my February 2018 wrap up post :)

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.

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.
