I Am My Beloved's
Claim Your Crown: Walking in Confidence and Worth As a Daughter of the King - Saint-Elien, Tarah-Lynn

“As a King’s kid, you have the audacity to claim your inheritance and all God has promised to you. When you choose to belong to Christ, you become an heiress (Rom. 8:17) and receive all the promises reserved for Abraham’s descendants (Gal. 3:29).”

Plainspoken and pragmatic, Tarah-Lynn Saint-Elien sets forth an emboldening and encouraging manifesto of sorts with her new book, “Claim Your Crown.” As she explains in the introduction, “Claim Your Crown thwarts the media’s misconceptions about beauty and womanhood while teaching God’s original intent. It delves into the recurrent insecurities, fears, doubts, and guilt young women face daily.” With a non-nonsense, conversational tone, she speaks directly to all of the young women who, in today’s society, face more pressure and challenges to their self-worth than ever before. So, what makes this book different from the scads of other self-help manuals out there? Faith in God. That’s where it all begins, and until we understand that, we will continue to stumble around blindly.

 As Revelation 17:14 tell us, Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, and Jesus and the Father are one. Therefore, as Tarah-Lynn states, “You, queen, are automatically deemed royalty as a child of God. You are born with royal blood.” Every one of God’s daughters is a princess, with royalty conferred on us from the moment of our conception. Feeling less than anyone else is a lie from the enemy because we are royalty. Instead of focusing on what the world tries to tell us, we need to listen to the voice of our Father, the King, and suit up each day with God’s armor as we fulfill His purposes for us and speak life over those around us.

Written for and addressing a young adult audience, Tarah-Lynn’s voice is very conversational and informal, addressing the reader directly. Because I am older than the target audience, this felt awkward to me at first, but it definitely presents a powerful narrative and would no doubt be perfect for those in their teens and twenties. Each chapter is titled, which I personally always find helpful in reinforcing the content, and ends with Kingdom Keys, which consists of a short summary of that chapter’s main points, and also a few Reflection questions to engage readers. This is a fun, inspirational book about serious topics, highlighting our regal status as God’s beloved daughters, and I highly recommend it for all young women, and even for those who are older but still need a reminder that they are preciously counted as princesses and queens in God’s sight.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Featuring the Saint
Featuring the Saint (Saint 05) - Leslie Charteris

Featuring the Saint contains three novellas: The Logical Adventure, The Wonderful War, and The Man Who Could Not Die.

 

I originally picked up the book from a favourite secondhand bookshop because I wanted to give the Saint books another chance.

I read my first Saint adventure back in 2013, and even tho I was not overly impressed with the book I have been wondering if this was a series I could enjoy. It turns out, I will always love the tv series but have no intention to continue with the books.

 

The main reasons for this are two-fold: 

 

1. The writing does not work for me. Yes, the books are action-packed and the Saint is an interesting character, but it strikes me the books were written for an audience of teenage boys. We have swashbuckling, which is great, but we also have lots of damsels in distress and women characters being either dismissed, characterised mostly by their relationship to male characters, and other cringe-worthy scenes.

 

2. I seek out formulaic vintage crime fiction books or tv series for entertainment between more serious books, or while digesting another more complex read, or just to relax. While The Saint is a perfectly great tv series, I've been spoiled by other series when it comes to the books - most recently, Francis Durbridge's Paul Temple series. While Durbridge's plots are extremely formulaic (and quite similar to those of Charteris actually), his main characters, Paul Temple and his wife Steve, are so much more likable and so much more fleshed out. It would not occur to Steve to accept the role of damsel, nor would Paul dismiss his wife's ideas or comments on a case (or in any other matter).

 

Anyway, I'm done with the The Saint books.

Wavering
Broken Love (Sinners of Saint 4) - L. J. Shen

This is book #2 in the All Saints High series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding of the series, I recommend reading this compelling series in order.

 

Knight is the best friend to the very love of his life.  They have grown up together, the children of parents who are also best friends.  More like family.  So being in love with her is basically a no-no.

 

Luna has long known that Knight, with his outgoing personality, will outgrow her and move on soon.  She is trying to come to terms with it and be grateful she has had him her whole life as such a good friend.  Really loving someone and knowing you have to let them go is painful.

 

This book just did it to me.  I laughed, I cried, & I hurt for the characters too.  This story has a little of everything.  This series is so strong and exciting with so many surprises!  Always a go to author, this book is just another example of why I pick this author up each and every time.  What an enormously epic read.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
