#96: Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

My Review of The Hunger Games
My Review of Catching Fire

My Review of movie, The Hunger Games


MY OPINION:
Unless you live under a rock, you will have heard of this series and know this is a final book. While it did come together in the end, and beautifully at that, I still felt a little hung up. I need more. I don't care if it's a final book, I need to know more.... did her last questions go her way?? I have to know!!!
As you can see, I hate that. Authors tell you no, and leave you screaming yes. It's brutal!
But that also shows how awesome the book is. Lures you in till you can't get enough and then BAM! You're hooked. So when it finishes, it's all you can think about.
Man, I'll be talking about this trilogy for a while. That's for sure! Maybe I'll start emailing the author begging for a fourth book? No, too much? Well, I'll have to suffice with recommending it to everyone on the planet I come in contact with.
Oh, and by the way... Cinna is still my favorite. Hands down. Love me some Lenny Kravitz, and through the whole second and third book, every time Cinna was mentioned, left me daydreaming.... woooweeee!!!! 
K, I may have spoiled some minor casting detail, but no biggie.... you'll get over it when you get 'er done. So get on it!

5/5

Recommend? Yes, but book 1 first.

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?!
