April 2018 TBR List

Happy Monday Everyone :)


How's the weather where you are? Unfortunately, we're still fighting off winterish temps, but I'm definitely hopeful that Spring will finally be just around the corner.


Even though it's a tad late, today I'd like to share with you all my April 2018 TBR list! I do have fifteen books in my pile that I hope to finish in April, and who knows I may even end up reading more than that. These fifteen are the ones that I for sure hope to get to this month though, and most of them I'm really excited about reading.


1) Fawkes by Nadine Brandes:



I actually had this one on my March TBR list, but unfortunately I had several other arc commitments to get to first, and so I didn't end up having time to read it. It's definitely one of the books I'm the most excited to read this month, as I've already heard such great things about it.


2) Falling For You by Becky Wade:



Becky Wade is one of my all time favorite authors, and so I'm over the moon to get to advance read her upcoming release that's the second in her Bradford Sisters series. I've already started this one, and I'm already so into it. The developing mystery definitely has me intrigued, and I love the interactions between Willow and Corbin. I honestly can't wait to finish this one and share my opinions with you all.


3) So Hard To Forget by Evelyn A. Crowe:



I don't typically read too many Harlequins anymore, unless they're the Love Inspired ones, as I tend to prefer my romances to be clean and sweet rather than the alternative. However, I stumbled upon this one at the library, and I thought the synopsis sounded interesting so I decided to go ahead and pick it up.


4) The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel:



I'd mentioned in my March wrap up that I'd read The Book of Ivy and that I'd completely loved it. It ends on a pretty big cliffhanger, so I definitely want to read the second book this month to find out what happens next.


5) The Case for Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro:



I've really been loving this Sherlock Holmes inspired trilogy by Brittany Cavallaro, and I'd listed the third book on my 2018 Most Anticipated Reads list. This series has had so much going on, that I'm really interested to see how everything's going to wrap up in the end.


6) The Defiant by Leslie Livingston:



I didn't love The Valiant when I read it a few weeks ago, but I enjoyed it enough that I wanted to continue on with reading the second book. I'm about halfway through it already, and to be honest it's been very underwhelming so far, and I'm anticipating it might end up being a two star read for me unfortunately.


7) Live Original by Sadie Robertson:



I've really been enjoying diving into Christian non-fiction the last few weeks, as it's really been helping me be more positive, and have a better outlook on a lot of things. I always find Sadie to be such an inspirational person, and I'm undoubtedly enjoying this devotional style novel by her.


8) Life Just Got Real by Sadie Robertson:



I wasn't sure if I would love Sadie's fictional novel or not, as I'm often not the biggest fan of celebrity fiction novels, but I'm pleasantly surprised so far by this faith based, beautifully written contemporary novel. I'll probably be finishing this one this week as I'm really into the story. 


9) The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken:



I've had this one on my TBR list for quite some time, but it always seemed to get put on the back burner. I finally decided to pick it up again last month, and I'm over halfway done so I know I'll be finishing it this month. It's a lot different from what I was expecting, but I'm actually really enjoying it so far, and I especially like Liam and Zu's characters.


10) Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken:



Since I'm enjoying the first book so much, I'm also planning on trying to get to the second book this month as well.


11) Rescue Team by Candace Calvert:



I read the first book in the Grace Medical series back in October, which you can find here, but I'd never gotten around to reading further in the series. I definitely want to change that this month, and so I plan on hopefully picking up the second book.


12) Let Them Eat Fruitcake by Melody Carlson:



86 Bloomberg Place was another series that I started in October, but never got around to reading any further in it. I'm really looking forward to picking up the second in the series, especially since you guys know how much I love Christmas books, and this is a Christmas one.


13) Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck:



I have mentioned many, many times on my blog just how much I loved Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck, and I decided this month that's way past time for me to go ahead and read the second book. I can't wait to dive back into this world. 


14) Unleashing Mr Darcy by Teri Wilson:



I recently posted a review of the Hallmark movie based off of this one, which you can find here, and I completely loved it so much that I knew I needed to jump right into reading the book. It'll be interesting to see just how much the movie stayed true to the book.


15) The Forgotten Recipe by Amy Clipston:



I've been really wanting to pick up another Amish fiction book for quite some time, and I've heard such great things about this one that I decided I'm going to go ahead and read it this month.


And that's the books I hope to get to this month guys! What books are you hoping to get to read this month?

Thanks so much for reading guys! I'll see you all again on Wednesday.

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…

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.
