Review:
At the start of this new year, one of my resolutions was to use this book to stay fit. Yes, you heard me right. I'm not a very big girl, and also have type 2 diabetes, so keeping fit and trim is ideal for my disease. Having an overactive thyroid helps, but on medication, it takes good old fashioned hard work to keep in shape. That and eating properly.
This book is not for beginners though. You have to be active to pass the tests in the front of the book, this is how I figured out that I am fit, but not to the level I thought. I still passed and was able to workout with this book, that also comes with a dvd. 
The workouts are tough. You look through the book thinking they're easy enough, until you get down to it. They're not as easy as they look, but they are do-able! I tell you, the way I feel afterward is not tired, but refreshed and regenerized. I definitely notice a difference in my stability, shape and strength too. And in only under two weeks.
This is definitely going to stay my regime through the end of the year.


5/5

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?!
