I'm still on Cress.
I basically read squat on vacation.

66% kindle
Cinder tilted her chin up, fixing her gaze on the man. Beside her, Wolf lowered himself into a fighting position, his fingers curled and ready, all at Cinder's urging. For the first time, she felt a spike of new emotion from him. Hatred, she thought. For her.
She ignored it.


  1. She sounds ready to do battle. I've been wanting to read this.
    I hope you had a great vacation. I'm just back from a short one myself. Hard to get back into the groove of things. Welcome back!

  2. Okay, so how is this book? I've been wanting to know from "like" minded readers (which I consider you to be). Shall I just wait for your review? ;)

  3. I know how that is. Now that the whole family comes with us on vacation, I don't read diddly squat.

  4. Lovely cover art; great post. Welcome back, Freda!

  5. I did the same thing last week. Had all of these high expectations to read while I was on vacation, but then time got away from me and I ended up reading the same book for nearly two weeks.

    I'm interested in this series. I recently bought Cinder, so hopefully I can get to it soon.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. She ignored it. Awesome ending sentence!

  7. I'm on vacation right now, too. I brought four books with me and two audiobooks. So far I've finished one book and will finish the second today. Not as much reading time as I anticipated!

  8. I want to read this whole series soo bad! I don't know what is stopping me from just buying it, but I might just do it after my next paycheck! This F56 definitely makes me more curious!! Also, it's funny, I actually read more during the holidays! Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  9. I cannot wait to read this series! I've heard so many good things about it! I always think I'm going to get a lot of reading done on vacation and it very rarely happens!

  10. Hope you're enjoying Cress. Stop stressing .. you're on vacation for goodness sake! :)

  11. Cool. I'm reading Cinder right now. (I know... like a few years late...)

  12. Great except Freda, I need to read this series, I only have heard good things about this series

  13. I read Cinder and loved it. Happy reading.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.

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.

Heat the oil in a pot on medium-low heat.  Add the onion and garlic, saute until golden. Add tomatoes, stir. Cook 2 minutes. Add zucchini, stir. Cook 1 minute. Add carrots, stir. Cook 1 minute. Add celery, stir. Cook 2 mi…
