I found this book to be of incredible value to me. I love books that make me recognize what I am missing in a particular area of my life and give me insights as to how to improve myself. This book was able to provide me with ways to improve my Spiritual Life and to see where I was failing, I particularly liked the chapter on "Vision".

I was fighting the impulse not to buy any more books today even though the 50% off all books sign was very alluring. I kept telling myself I didn't have much space for more books and then I said aloud 'I am participating in the #readyourowndamnbooks challenge anyways so I should read books that I already own', to which my 10 year old son replies, 'You do realize once you buy them, you will own them and by reading them you are still completing the challenge'. The voice of reason had spoken!! One more book (a few more?) wouldn't hurt, right.

Having read both Wild and Tiny Beautiful Things I recognized most of the quotes in this book. Although some quotes stand well on their own, others lack substance with out the full context of which they speak of. I have read Tiny Beautiful Things more than once and find its raw honesty and wisdom inspiring and although many quotes in Brave Enough are derived from it, here they lack the powerful punch that they possess in Tiny Beautiful Things. That said, this little book is great for reading them at a moment's notice.

In search of the perfect Gothic Novel; a combination of an eerie atmosphere and events, a hauntingly and yet beautiful storyline and suspense. Some of my favorite are The Angel's Game, The Shadows of the Wind, and The Thirteenth Tale. Any suggestions?
