Freda's Voice 100+ Book Challenge 2014 Sign Up

Welcome to the first ever reading challenge here on Freda's Voice that we are hosting!
I decided to do this challenge due to my love for it, and my frustrations with other blogs that have hosted it. I'm not calling anyone out, but to have a successful challenge you need to keep up to date with the Linky lists, postings each month for your participants, and sometimes prizes help. I aim to do those and maybe more. We'll see how it goes, but I'll at least keep things up-to-date.

So the rules are as follows:

1. Create a post, but list as you read, either a blog or GoodReads, somewhere I can see it, and leave your url to that post in the Linky below.
2. Read some books. Any books. No limit in pages, even the phone book counts if that is your fancy. Just read!
3. That's it!

I may have prizes, haven't decided yet.
*UPDATE: I will be having surprise prizes based on reviews. I'm not sure how many, but at least one each  month!*

Each month a new Linky will be posted.

See you there and happy reading!

  1. Do you mean make a list of books we plan to read in 2014 or write the list as we read? XD sounds fun seeing as Ive read over 260 books in seven months.

    2. So we start the list now, or when 2014 rolls around? Pretty sure that is a stupid question. But want to make sure clear. Never done anything like this before.

    3. You create a blog post, saying your joining and whatever else you want to add, so you can add the url to the Linky. Your reading list can be done as you read. I will post mine soon for reference.

  2. Hello Freda. I applauded when I saw your write-up. My term for your beef is "delinquent host". We could probably rant examples for half an hour! Busy or emotional situations are understandable. We're referring to 'Say what?' scenarios!

    Like you, 2014 will see me as a first-time hostess and offering 3 fun themes is my own priority and wish. I'd love it if you and your readers had a look. (P.S. Biggest pet peeve is offering prizes but not including all nations of your members). I love your positive demeanour. Warmly, Carolyn. http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-reading-themes/

  3. I am not going to commit until after holiday madness subsides but 100 books is easy for me. Doing the posting is where I fall behind but I've at least tried to do more reviews this year.
    Since I enjoy my visits here and the bloggers I've met, I know this will be fun.

  4. I added a link but it is not the correct one. I will try to do better.

  5. Glad you started this challenge, Freda. Was getting frustrated with the other 100 Book Challenge which was hard to link up to.

  7. To get to 100 books, I think I'd have to read 3 picture books a month. Tempting, but I'll probably pass. Now if it were 70 or 80 I'd be in.

  8. I'm in, dear girl! I hope to find the same enthusiastic folks also gathering in any one of mine. :) Warmly, Carolyn.

  9. Good on you for taking this on. I can't handle 100 but I will be cheering everyone on ... and poking around the linky for reviews ;)

  10. Hi and thanks for hosting! This year for first time I set my goal on Goodreads to 100 books too, and this challenge is one more reason to push hard and make it :) I want to ask tho, do graphic novels/manga/comic books count?

  11. I like the idea of this, and would join in, but I checked my list so far for this year and I'm only at 17. I am currently reading 3. Yep, I read more than one at a time--book in hand, one in home player, one in car player.
    I will look at lists posted here to get idea for books to read.
    I appreciate your hosting this challenge. Have fun!

  12. I don't know if I've ever read 100 books in a year but I'm giving it a go!

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
