    PS I'm actually going to give away my slightly used Wither ARC :)

  10. Alot of those are on my wish list too, but some I hadn't heard of yet, so I will be definitely checking those out

  11. We have the same taste in books. I'm looking to reading your reviews.

  12. Oooh - some of these look really good. I'm stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.

  13. I see two or three titles that really intrigue me, I'm going to have to look for more info on those.

    Please tweet me & let me know! :)

  15. That is quite a list. I'm not familiar with most of the books that you have listed, but hope u enjoy them.

  16. I love to read your wishlist, I always see a few I want to add to my list.

  17. I'm so behind on my reading, I can't even come up with a wish list! Happy Saturday!

  18. I still have like 4 books I have to read before I can even think of making a list. Guess I'm not the only one obsessed with reading!

  19. Hi Freda,
    That's a long list of books. Just by the title some of them sound interesting. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  20. I really enjoyed The Liberation of Alice Love. It's a fun, sweet and interesting read. I liked Alice, she made me laugh throughout the book. The supporting characters were well written and the story was taking twists and turns that had me wondering what would happen next.
    The identity theft aspect of the story was right on point. When Alice questions the bank manager, she asks in great detail how someone could have wiped her accounts clean. She asked him questions like how could the culprit have known the answers to her personal questions, such as what is the name of her first pet and how the transfer could have gotten through so quickly when in reality a basic check deposit takes days to clear. Being in banking myself, I know the ins and outs of this type of thing and I can appreciate that the author did her research here, in order to make the fraud aspect of the story believable.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself. I'm happy to say I did get it, and the hubster says it is just like hers! That's a compliment!! So here is my rendition of my mother-in-law's soup.

1 cup Ditali pasta shells 1/2 large onion, diced 2 tbsp olive oil 1 large garlic clove, minced 2 on-the-vine tomatoes, diced 1 zucchini, diced 3 organic carrots from bunch, diced 2 celery stalks, diced 1/4 head of cabbage, sliced and diced 1 can Cannellini beans, rinsed (white kidney beans) 2 cartons of vegetable stock 1 sprig of thyme 3/4 tbsp salt 1 tsp pepper 2 bay leaves

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
