Let's All Be Brave {Book Review}


Let's All Be Brave
Living Life with Everything You Have
by Annie F. Downs

About the book:
Annie Downs admits she's not exactly the bravest girl in the world. She still cries sometimes when she leaves her parents' home in Georgia, she's never jumped out of a plane, and she only rides roller coasters to impress boys. But Annie knows that courage resides inside each and every one of us, and she's on a mission to triumph over her own fears while encouraging readers to do the same. 
As a single young woman, writer, speaker, and popular blogger, Annie shares this journey toward bravery with honesty and humor. Using wonderful stories from her own life, contemporary real-life examples, and fascinating historical and biblical references, Annie encourages readers to grab hold of the brave life that they desperately desire. 
Let's All Be Brave is more than just a book, it's a battle cry. In it, Annie challenges us to live boldly, calls us to step into those places that require courage, and gives us the help to take the next step forward-even when it's scary. This non-fiction, essay-driven book opens the door to many different views of courage-nudging, encouraging, and inspiring readers to be brave whenever given the chance.
For several reasons, this is a tough book to organize my feelings in an impressive way to present to you. I admit, this was a hard one for me to read. At first, I couldn't stand her writing style. Actually, that feeling continued well into the book. I felt like she jumped from one subject to another and trying to concentrate so hard to follow her made me lose my interest. Her writing style felt like I was reading a bunch of little blog posts, separated into chapters. I have this bad habit of once a book becomes hard for me to read, I lose interest.

This book is written in a memoir style and was a story of one woman, Annie, who learned to be brave right where she was and now carries the torch-of-courage hoping to light an un-lit one. Her basic premise is to encourage us all to be brave in the little moments of our lives, which lead to the biggest moments... and being brave looks like following Christ, even when you aren't comfortable when you see where you're headed.
