REVIEW:
Creeptastic!
I get a 'Children of the Corn' feel when I read it. Which I have actually done twice now, and each time it's as scary as the last. These little girls wouldn't appear to be the nightmare that they are, and sadly, someone finds that out. These girls don't even do anything violent, but can make others' do things. What these girls do is incredible. Though, if I had the power they had, I'd use it for the greater good.
I prefer a horror story and the author delivers there. No swearing or violence needed to get the job done either, which was refreshing. A thrill of a ride for 15 pages.

5/5

  2. I usually never read horror but I'm so curious! This one really caught my eye- I love that it can be creepy still without the violence. Adding this one to my to-reads!

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?!
