January Monthly News

Welcome to the January edition of monthly news!
Happy new year to you all! I hope it's off to a great start. 
For me, it's been bittersweet. While this new year has essentially been nothing to complain about in my personal life, we have had a funeral to attend when an extended family member died. He was 93 though, so instead of being sad, we mostly celebrated his life. R.I.P. Henry.
A ton of famous people have died this year already too. Is it something in the air?!
I didn't really make any resolutions this year, per say, but I did decide that I wasn't reviewing anything I didn't absolutely need in my life. I guess it was consuming my life and I needed to step back a bit.
Did you make any resolutions? Have they stuck or dissolved already?

  1. I really want to read more by F. Scott Fitzgerald, because The Great Gatsby is one of my all time favorite books. That sandwich looks so delicious! :D

  5. I'm sorry for your extended family's loss.
    I enjoyed the movie: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I've ordered Moo business cards in the past and like the co. I'm still working my resolutions out for the year. Have a great year!

  6. I'm sorry for your family's loss. I'm glad you could celebrate his life. :) I've heard that The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is very short. I've only seen the movie and it's interesting to me that they made such a long movie out of such a short story.

  9. What a good month! I rec'd The Newsmakers, so it's on deck after the next book. I'm trying to break up my mystery/thrillers--I read a lot of them in the winter!

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?!
