I was an audiobook virgin when another book blogger mentioned them on Facebook. I commented that I hadn’t tried audiobooks and wasn’t sure they were for me. She’d won a stack of books in a competition and her prize sponsor, Bolinda, responded to my comment, saying if I sent them my details they’d send through a trial pack.
They didn’t know I was a book blogger, so there was no expectation… just the offer to try it out. Several CDs arrived only days later offering a few free recordings, and of particular interest to me was Liane Moriarty’s 2011 novel, The Hypnotist’s Love Story.
I’d only recently (and belatedly) read the much-lauded Big Little Lies, so was keen for more from the popular Aussie author.
