January Monthly News

Happy 2013!!!
My resolution this year is to keep trying to be a better human being. Be more compassionate, patient and loving. Keep learning and listen more.
Good goals for any person to strive for.
I also want to read at least 150 books. I read 137 last year and feel down about that since it's much lower than the previous years. I know it's good by any standards, but I want to read more.
My blogging goals are to comment more often, since I've been slipping, and find more blogs to read. Meaning the newbie blogs. Show support for the newbie, since I used to be one, that's my thinking....
What are your personal and blogging goals, if any?
You'll also notice in the monthly news that I'm keeping track of genres read instead of page count. It's the one true way to see which genre is my favorite or most chosen.

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?!
