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

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
