    Would you listen to White Queen again? Why?

    YES. I love this author, I love this time period and the sound of the readers voice was so beautiful!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The history of course. I am obsessed with british royal history and love learning more about this time period. I like how Gregory sticks to historical facts so closely. She waivers where she has to, but I like it. I like to think, with the way she tells the story that it is completely accurate.


    What does Susan Lyons bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is beautiful! I felt like that is they way a queen would speak and since it was told from a Queen's point of view, it was perfect


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, I had to break it up. Too long.

    Would you listen to Gone with the Wind again? Why?

    yes. I love this story. I loved the movie first, I loved the book even more.


    What other book might you compare Gone with the Wind to and why?

    It is incomparible to anything I've read, but if you like Civil War era or historical fiction, you'll love this story. If you love the movie, you'll LOVE this book.

    The end, when she FINALLY realizes how much she loves Rhett


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Haha, this movie is a film!

    What made the experience of listening to Holiday Sparks: A Story from Naughty and Nice the most enjoyable?

    It was free was the first. I would have never picked it up other wise. I wished it was longer, but definitely made folding laundry, doing dishes and running errands more enjoyable!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Holiday Sparks: A Story from Naughty and Nice?

    Oh when they start to fall in love...that's expected though. Very predictable story but it made me smile and remember falling in love with my husband. It was a feel good story.


    Which character – as performed by Savannah Richards – was your favorite?

    The 2 main characters Lainie and Scott. They were both adorable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The mushy gushy stuff :)


    Any additional comments?

    cute, free, not too much to think about, and it makes you smile :) Worth the listen while doing chores for sure.
