  1. Hi Freda,
    I've heard The Martin is really good. I'll have to put that on list. Have a great day!

  2. I was surprised by how much I loved The Martian - a great audiobook and they did a good job with the film. Congrats on completing a challenge. I'm not doing any organized challenges this year but I have an ongoing Finish the Series one that I work at each year (not very successfully).

  3. It looks like you had a great month and liked all the books you read. I'm glad to hear that! Have a great May!

  4. I really should read The Martian, shouldn't I? I'm glad you liked everything you read this month!

  5. This is a lovely blog, truly a breath of fresh air :-) I am so happy to have come across it. Thank you, Freda's Voice!

    1. Thank you for the beautiful compliment.

  6. Ah yes. Wasn't The Marian so good. I loved the audiobook and really enjoyed the movie too. Congrats on completion of a challenge too.

  7. I enjoyed The Fault In Our Stars. Have a great May!

  8. One of these days I'm going to read The Treatment - glad you enjoyed it! I can't believe you've already completed one of your 2016 challenges! I'm impressed!

  9. I watched the Martian but haven't read the book yet. Is it worth is if I already saw the movie?

    1. I think the book was better and there were a couple things in the book that were not in the film. I would, just for comparison, or curiosity. :-)

  10. Wow on finishing a challenge already! Might have to pick up the Martian too. Have a great month.

  11. The Martian is a good story. I just saw the film a second time. Still have it to read too.

    1. Read the book, Velvet! It is sooooooo much better than the film. :-)

  12. That's great you were able to complete a challenge. I don't really do them, since i tend to have varied taste in my reading all ready and don't like the pressure.

  13. Congrats on finishing your first challenge!

#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…
