After having read Kate Watson's somewhat retellings of Mansfield Park and Great Expectations, I was curious to see what she'd do with mythology. Let's see how it went!
"The air is dead with the stench of blood. Mine. His." I was hooked - right from the start. I was in for the ride of my life, but I didn't know it yet. All I have to say is: be aware of the triggers and now that this is a story about a survivor, written by a survivor.
I've had Brave Enough on my ARC-list for a long, long while now. The cover intrigued me from the start - it's just so pretty, right?! - and the synopsis immediately touched me. Knowing this novel was going to be about cancer and drug addiction, I realized this was not going to be an easy read. But that doesn't mean I wasn't going to enjoy it.
