Visit VVB32 Reads for Talk Like A Pirate Day.
OFFICIAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY WEBSITE






In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with 'the dust of one hundred dogs', dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human body - with her memories intact. Now she's a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.

My Opinion:
If you could see me now, you would see me standing tall, clapping bravo to A.S. for such an incredible adventure. I really feel like I just got back from the most amazing time in my life.
Saffron, Emer, whatever you wanna call her, she is brilliant! I would get on a ship and do her bidding too! She's incredibly strong and has a lasting impression on you right away.
This mash up of old times and the now is really cool! I mean uber-cool! It was also a delight to have a dogs perspective, since that's sorta what it was all about.
I know some of you are like, what?! But you really gotta read the book to find out. I don't want to spoil it.


5/5


Recommend? Definitely, yes!

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?!
