January Monthly News

Welcome to the January 2014 edition of monthly news!
First off, with the new year we have moved and registered at our own domain! WOOHOO!! Freda's Voice is now 100% Freda's Voice!!!
After my stats last year, I learned I loved YA Fiction the most. It was what I read most, and seemed to turn to when I wanted a good and sometimes gritty read.
I also decided to host my own reading challenge. Have you signed up? The goal is to read at least 100 books. It seems like a lot, but that's what a challenge is supposed to be. I do hope you will join anyway.
Won't be keeping stats on anything this year... can't be bothered.
I also started a recipe section. Not sure how far this will go.

  1. Looks like you had a wonderful month :D. My Grandmother gave me a huge pile of V. C. Andrews books a while ago, so I really want to start reading them soon.
    Happy February reading :D

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?!
