* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
* You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
* Please avoid spoilers!

My Teaser:

She could have been a role model for every woman my age who was finally embracing her orgasms and her sisters, letting her breasts go free, getting an education, a job, a female lover. I could have made a statement.

~ The Memoir of Marilyn Monroe - Sandi Gelles-Cole (TOURS JUNE 8)


  1. A very interesting teaser. Marilyn Monroe was a fascinating woman.

  2. I've never read one whole book about Marilyn Monroe. I'll bet there is a lot I don't know. I always wanted to read "Blonde" by Joyce Carol Oates. I'll bet this is a good memoir.

  3. I've been thinking of getting this one. It really sounds like an interesting book.

    My teaser is here.

  4. When I was younger I used to be fascinated by Marilyn Monroe. She was such a complicated person - so much more than her image.

  5. As I was reading your teaser, I was wondering who she was talking about but looking at the title it makes sense now.

  6. This definitely sounds like an entertaining read! Thanks for sharing!

  7. This might have to go on my tbr list. Thanks!!

  8. When I think of this blonde beauty, I think of her standing over a grate in the road with the skirt of her dress billowing around her. She was a beauty indeed but there's definitely a lot we don't know about her. This should be an interesting read.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.

So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
