The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56 & Book Beginnings)

Welcome to week '?'.
Currently I'm using a friend's internet on my phone to get some kind of post up.
I'll have internet back on Monday sometime so next week will be a normal post again. Bear with me. 😊

Since I'm on my phone there will be no Linky. Leave a comment with your url to your post and I'll visit a.s.a.p.
(I know I still have a couple to visit from last week. Sorry life has gotten in the way... I wish I could say I was having fun at least but nope.)

Happy weekend and happy birthday Canada!

  2. Thanks for still managing to post while being so busy! I haven't joined F56 in ages but I've really missed it. I'm featuring Astrid Lindgren's diaries today, they're really interesting and she's such an amazing writer :D I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  16. I hope your internet is up and running again soon! Enjoy your weekend, Freda! Happy Birthday to Canada!

    This week I shared a bit from an audiobook I am listening to. I wish I could tell you I was enjoying it immensely, but I'm still not sure I'll like it.

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?!
