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

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
