​Stardust Diaries

 

I’m sitting here in front of my laptop thinking of a way to start this…

HI! *grins* well, I know this may sound cheesy, but welcome to my new weekly installment… the Stardust Diaries! To be honest, I didn’t know I was going to be doing this until yesterday.

If you follow me on Instagram (@rubies_chrsitianbookreviews) you may have seen me post in my stories a couple of times about my ”prayer journal”. The short story is that I use my journal to pray (hehe). I’m a writer, and as you may know, writers express themselves better on paper. It was after posting a pic of my payer journal yesterday that I realized, why don’t I share snippets of them with everyone? Maybe it will help someone? I don’t know. There’s a lot of things God has been talking to me about writing, reading, and just life, and I would love to share it with you.

‘We don’t have to be like anyone else, we just have to be our best self.”

Think of this as mini weekly devos from of a bookish nerdy-writer sprinkled with book love and writing inspiration. As teens and young adults, I feel the world is trying to drown us in a lot of self-doubt and comparison, and it is slowly killing our joy and happiness, sometimes, without us even noticing. That’s exactly what God showed me yesterday. How terrible and hard I was being with myself. How I judged things about myself that were part of who I was and how God had created me. We don’t have to be like anyone else, we just have to be our best self. Easier said than done, right? And believe me, it’s hard. When the world is trying to sell you an image of what beauty, love, and life should be, its so hard to keep your eyes fixed on God, I know. I pray that the Stardust Diaries will be of some inspiration and reminder to you (and me) of God’s amazing grace and love.

With all the love in my heart,

Breny

About the Book 

Oath-of-the-Outcast

Title: Oath of the Outcast

Author: C.M. Bandschbach

Publisher: Crosshair Press

Release date: July 23, 2019

Genre: Fantasy

A lost brother. 

An unwilling outlaw. 

A rising enemy. 

An unusual alliance. 

Years ago, Rhys MacDuffy was brutally cut off from his clan, stripped of his name and inheritance, and banished to the remote Dragon Keep. Perched high above the Shang Pass in the land of Alsaya, he assumed the mantle of the Mountain Baron, serving out his sentence as the overseer of the worst outlaws and outcasts.

But one day he receives a desperate message from the clan who disowned him: MacDuffy’s Seer—his beloved brother—has been taken by their enemies.

With his band of Mountain Brigands and an unwelcome sidekick, Rhys leaves his mountain stronghold to find and rescue his brother. The tide of war is rising amongst the Clans of Alsaya, fueled by the magic-wielding sect of Druids who seek to unleash a dark force the world has long forgotten.

Can the bond of blood run deeper than banishment?

My Review

Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5/5

Wow. Oath of the Outcast is one of the books that grab your attention since the beginning of the first page…not even the first page… since reading the book premise! Ahhh! Where do I start?! This book combines some of my fav topics, brothers, magic, medieval vibes, sword fights, curses…all perfection. The world-building was amazing! The book truly transports you to the setting of the story. I could see the beautiful castle, the open windows in front of the sea; I could hear the sound of waves crashing and the seagulls flying…AH! *Day Dreams*

But let’s talk about the characters for a sec, shall we? These characters are some of the most interactive and real characters ever! I loved to see different personalities in the book, and even though the majority of the characters were men, each one had a distinctive voice that set him apart. The dialogue between them is brilliant, and for once I felt I was actually inside a guy’s head and not a girl’s, lol. The author did an excellent job keeping the characters real, and not making them unsensible superheroes like we tend to nowadays see in YA fiction. About the ending… I NEED BOOK TWO NOWWWW! I’m afraid that if I go into the detail about it, I’ll end spoiling something about it, so, my best advice after you’ve read this review, go get your copy of Oath of the Outcast now!

The Golden Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse book review

Overall Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5

About the book:

 Can Olivia survive the crime and Gold Rush fever of 1849…and the countless marriage proposals?
A series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

The Daughters of the Mayflower series continues when Olivia Brighton finds herself widowed and working in her brother’s restaurant in San Francisco during the height of the rush for gold. Even though she receives at least twenty marriage proposals a day, she will never marry a gold miner. Her brother’s friend Joseph Sawyer has gotten caught up in local politics and the plight of Chinese in forced labor. The more Joseph gets pulled into investigating crime in the city, the less Olivia sees of the compassionate man. And just when she thinks she could love again, a fire threatens to steal all hope.

 

My thoughts:

You guys know historical fiction books aren’t always my cup of tea. When I pick a historical fiction book it is because I genuinely believe it has potential, and I’m glad to say, The Golden Bride did not disappoint. But what did I love so much about this book, you may ask. Well, almost everything, lol. This book has such a rich historical story that opened my eyes to the realities of the San Francisco gold rush. Yeah, we’ve all watched movies of the gold rush and the people that sold everything to go and chase the ”golden dream”, but the truths lived out there were different, and this book portrayed them so beautifully it’s truly a double win. Also, there are some deep topics touched in this book (though not in detail) like the slave trade, sin, egoism, racism, etc. and I respect the author so much for portraying them so well and not ”sweetening” the realities at that time in history.

Well, about the characters, Olivia and Thomas, they are completely adorable beings I just wished I could hug forever! There are wonderful relationships along with the book between brother and sister and also, of course, lovers (hehehe). The deep Christian message is beautiful, and I feel that my faith has, in a way, been challenged. It encouraged me to read about the hardships these people went through and see that even though the world seemed at its worst, there was still a small group of people that remained standing up for what was right — a truly charming story.

Midnight on the River Grey by Abigail Wilson book review


Welcome to the Blog Tour for Midnight on the River Grey by Abigail Wilson, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: Midnight on the River Grey
Author:
Abigail Wilson
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date:
July 2, 2019
Genre: Historical Suspense/Gothic Romance

She knew the house was keeping secrets. If only the darkness would speak . . .

After her elder brother’s mysterious death, Rebecca Hunter vows to expose the man she believes responsible: Mr. Lewis Browning—known by the locals as the Midnight Devil and by Rebecca as her new guardian.

Summoned to his reclusive country estate to await her London season, Rebecca plans her own secret investigation among the darkened corridors of the mysterious Greybourne Hall. Yet Lewis Browning is not as she once imagined, and his motivation is horribly unclear. Recurrent nightmares and Rebecca’s restless feelings are further complicated by the shadow of her mother’s prior descent into madness and wondering if she, too, will follow the same heartbreaking path.

Even as midnight rides, strange injuries, and further murders lead back to Mr. Browning, Rebecca can’t ignore the subtle turn of her heart. Has she developed feelings for the man she swore to see hanged? And moreover, can she trust him with her uncertain future?

My Thoughts

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

Wow. Every time I think historical fiction can’t surprise me anymore, a new book surpasses my expectations. This book is a mix of Jane Eyre, Dickens, Agatha Christie, and Jane Austen. In other words, it has the best of both worlds, period. Yeah, so I FREAKING loved this book soooo much! It’s been a breath of fresh air, and its uniqueness was wonderful! The premise hooked me like crazy, and I couldn’t wait to get my copy soon enough. As I mentioned above, this book has all the Jane Eyre feels, so its kind of a gothic/suspenseful romance mystery *flails*.

Let’s talk about the characters, or even better, about Mr. Browning, AHHHHH!! I felt he could be the best ”Beast” in any Beauty and the Beast retelling! He is so dark and mysterious, and no one can figure him out (which is a plus point *faints*) that, in my opinion, leaves nothing to envy to many of the classic literature book characters. Then we have Rebecca. The story is told from her POV and though I wished some things about her like her immatureness and naivety were not that pronounced, I enjoyed and understood why the author chose to portray her like that. She is an inquisitive girl with such a wish for independence. The story development was perfect as well as the character development! The descriptions were good, and I felt I was living in a medieval fairytale castle! Do I recommend it? Heck, yes! Absolutely! You will not regret it.

Murder in the City of Liberty by Rachael McMillan book review

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5

Book summary:

My Thoughts:
I’m happy to be back with the duo of Hamish and Reggie. I love the quirky relationship they have, it really makes them look like they belong to each other. Sometimes it is somewhat difficult to tell, but they make the story fun! There is a wealth of intrigue and not very friendly guys in the book. At times I really didn’t know who was good and who was bad. If I had to pick a favorite book, I would definitely go with book number one of this series. There are some scenes in this book that are very confusing. There where a LOT of characters and not very defined personalities. The romance was a bit too much for a mystery book, in my opinion. The story covers a little about baseball and prejudice during that time period. This story also covers racial discrimination in baseball during that time in history, so there is some upsetting content covered. The plot development was very slow in my opinion and would have loved to see things speed up, especially on the ”middle” section of the book. What I found a little weird is the fact that this book is listed under Christian books, and I sincerely didn’t notice a Christian message.
Plot: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5

The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White book review

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5/5

Book summary:

Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network–field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the intelligent Margot, but how can he convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?

Amid biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

 

My thoughts:

When I first read the title of the book, didn’t really know what to think! A story about a female cryptographer set in World War I paired with that title name….interesting. I decided to give it a try, and I sooo don’t regret it! This book has such an exciting set of characters and plot development! Each character has such a unique personality, and I loved that for a nice change, the main character, a girl, actually loves mathematics and strives to be a college professor! (Way to go, girl!!!) I remember one time watching a movie about a little girl that was a mathematics prodigy, and it set my curiosity on fire! Yeah, like, *nonchalantly speaks* Margot started college at the age of thirteen, phew, no biggie… (And I’m here trying to stay sane with college stuff, lol) So yeah, very very interesting characters! Margot has this passive, yet bold personality I admire! She’s not intimidated with what others think of her but instead always follows ”the number”…the way God uses to speak to her. Yeah, she can sometimes be hotheaded and ends up messing everything up, but, seriously, don’t we all? Then we have Drake, the mysterious half Spanish guy with t a broken nose, hehe, you’ll get the reference soon my friends! He’s no slouch, either. He personality is so much fun and mature. He complements Margot’s character so well even though they are complete opposites in some ways. What I really liked seeing in this book was the variety of ethnicities! We have English, Spanish, French, Belgian, and German characters, poor, rich, and in between, all working towards the same goal. Victory. The plot is very well paced, though the middle was somewhat slow, it gets better and better. From the title, you might expect a cheesy love novel, but it is nothing like that. This is my first book from Roseanna M. White, and I can’t wait to read her other works 🙂

My Reading Standards

Well….

Hi! *Sips Matcha 🍵*

Today I’m going to talk about my reading standards! Yeah…umm…don’t think its something easy for me to do because…there are many thoughts and its rather difficult to put a ”fixed rule” that applies to every single book, but I think we can figure it out.

Ok. My reading standards. If I were to write a quick list of things I really don’t read or recommend they are the following:

-No explicit romance (sexual) scenes

-No explicit gore scenes

-Excessive violence

-Cussing/bad words

-Using the Lord’s Name in Vain

-Encouraged unhealthy relationships

-Very dark magic

etc.

Yeah, BUT, there are some exceptions to the case. So, I really don’t like to read those type of books with those things because, first, I consider my body cough and that includes BRAIN, as God’s temple. And really, I believe those things don’t edify me as a Christian and promote my spiritual growth. I’m not judging you if you do read those things, I believe that there is no one better to tell you what’s right than God. You ask He answers. And its really a very personal issue…maybe you don’t like what I read, and that’s totally fine. We all are entitled to our opinion and standards in front of God, and I’m not going to be the one to cast the first stone. sips matcha

But how did I determined my standards, you may ask? Well, my friends, I used my life guide book, the Bible. A Bible verse that is always in my mind when I pick a book is Romans 14:12, ”So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God”. Yeah, that kind of always gives me goosebumps. It is very important to consider well what we read, write, watch, etc. I’m no pro at this tho! I’m still learning, and yeah, maybe I’m making mistakes, but one thing I ask the Lord is, show me! Show me what I’m doing wrong! You don’t know how much responsibility it is to recommend books to you, guys! Don’t get me wrong, I love making you reviews and filming little bookish updates, etc., but then comes the part I ask myself, am I doing wrong? Are my book recommendations good? So, my best advice for you is, NEVER LET ANYONE DECIDE FOR YOU WHAT YOU READ, WRITE, or WATCH! NEVER! We are all humans bound to make mistakes, but there is One who never makes mistakes! Something that helps me a lot, and its not just with books, its to ask myself, ”What would Jesus do?” It sounds quite radical but, as Christians, aren’t we striving to be more and more like Him?
Just a little something to meditate on….

As I said above, there are some cases when I do allow myself to read some of the before mentioned subjects. Maybe it’s the life of a drug addict and his journey to finding the Lord, or real-life situations that real people went through… but there’s a thing pauses for effect I will only read it if there is a message at the end of the story. Period. If you are just putting those things as fillers in your books, then sorry, but nope, not going to read that. Of course, it can’t be extremely explicit, or I won’t read that either.

Now on the subject of violence. I’ll put it simply. The most violence I will read is Marvel movies type violence. I won’t read a book that gives me every single gore little detail of throat slicing or beheading. If you just say in your story, ”and they beheaded him” yeah, I can read that.

Also, Romance, another fetish subject, eek! I could write paragraphs and paragraphs about this. No explicit sex, no explicit kisses, not an EXCESSIVE amount of either, and no LGBLT relationships. Period. On to the next one.

Something nonnegotiable is using the Lord’s name in vain. I’m sorry if that seems a little too radical for you, but I really can’t tolerate that.

Encouraged unhealthy relationships, and what I mean by that is when the book portrayed unhealthy relationships as normal, I mean abuse, sexual harassment, unfaithfulness, etc. None of those are things that should be celebrated or encouraged, so that is not a book I will be putting on my bookshelves.

Cussing and bad words….yeah, also none of that. What I do tolerate are the made up bad words that Shakespeare made, lol, they always make me cry of laughter! ”Thou art a boil, a plague sore” heheheh. I love my Shakespeare!

What I mean by not reading very dark magic is when magic meets dark, hehehe you guys know what I mean. If magic intermingles with the ”spiritual world of the dead” or things like that, I’ll pass thank you very much.

And yeah, those are my main ”nopes” when reading. There may be some I might be missing that I don’t remember right now, but I’ll update this page as time goes by. I really want to glorify God with everything I do, so maybe this list changes in a month, year, week, who knows? But what I do really encourage you is to seek God’s guidance in this subject. He knows exactly what you need and what will edify you.

I’m doing a post this week on a new rating system for books that (I hope to employ soon!) I’m developing so you guys can have a more detailed idea of what type of content each book has!

If you read this far, GAHHH!! I JUST WANT TO HUG YOU! I really appreciate you, and I’m so blessed to connect with you guys through social media! You are all awesome!

If you enjoyed reading my little ramble, please subscribe to my blog! I post weekly book reviews and bookish posts! It would help me sooooo much to grow this little web page 💗!

Blessings,

Breny

Book Summary:

Her maturity accelerates as the challenges of grief, and romance enter the scene.Amidst this drama, Jenay is caught in a web spun by Renault, a rich, charming man who once threatened ruination of her father’s shipping company but now seeks something even more valuable–Jenay. Renault, her past enemy, suddenly becomes her friend then something more . . . Will she leave the man she loves for this new found affection?Jenay must find where her strength lies in order to face the challenges life brings her or be washed away like driftwood on the tumultuous shores of Lake Superior. Life’s richest dramas are played out under the banner of two ruby colored moons and become the hidden gems which forge her into a mature strong woman. Jenay realizes God is by her side, using even the harsh events of life to create something precious in her.

My thoughts:

First of all, I would like to thank author Jenny Knipfer for giving me a copy of her debut novel. All thoughts are my own and were not influenced by the author or publisher in any way.

Ok, back to the actual review. 🙂

This book has such an interesting plot. I love that this story is about a young woman from a mixed heritage! I really enjoyed reading about the life journey she had to take and the trials and tribulations that eventually grounded her faith. What I loved about this book was the message it held! It was s very beautiful message of God’s grace and faithfulness; It really touched me. Jenay and Jacque, the main characters, were very interesting, but I would have loved to see some more development in their overall arcs. I really liked the story overall, but it really didn’t ”draw me in” as I hoped it would. The book is 412 pages, and for my taste, the story was a tad too long, especially at the beginning. Thus, the story development is somewhat slow. Those are the only reasons why I’m rating it with 3.5 stars. Still, I would encourage you to take a chance on it! 😃 Though I didn’t love it, It is actually a very good debut novel!✨
