    Story
    Where does Seduce Me at Sunrise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is mindless entertainment to listen to while driving around. Comparable to all the Lisa Kleypas books with romance, mild sex, a tragedy, and a predictable ending.


    What other book might you compare Seduce Me at Sunrise to and why?

    Any of Lisa Kleypas Hathaway books. Someone had said it was less interesting, but I found it the same as the others.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It would give away the book if I said this- but near the end.


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

    An Unlikely Match

    When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York.

    Story
    Would you listen to I Am Malala again? Why?

    I would listen to this book over and over again, catching the parts that I might have missed the first time over. There is so much to learn from what she experienced and saw in Swat and Birmingham that one can't remember it all the first time around.


    What other book might you compare I Am Malala to and why?

    I don't read many autobiographies so can't compare it.


    What about Archie Panjabi’s performance did you like?

    First off, I love Archie Panjabi on The Good Wife, so I already like her voice. She speaks softly and with the appropriate accent for the book. She can pronounciate all the words correctly and has great intonation.


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

    Overall her passion for peace and education for all and her total commitment to her cause.

    It’s Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady-in-waiting, and if it weren’t for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her hand would already be guaranteed.

    If you could sum up A Wallflower Christmas in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, predictable, romantic


    What other book might you compare A Wallflower Christmas to and why?

    The other Wallflower Series Books. Each has the same story of finding the man, falling in love, some catastrophic event, and resolving the event, then getting married.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love listening to her read. I select books based on her reading.


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

    Not really, although there were times I didn't want to arrive at my destination so I could hear more of the story to see "what happens"


    Any additional comments?

    Fun listening

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.
