GIVEAWAY: Isle of... Where? Audiobook

Tell me what was the first audiobook you listened to enter the draw for The Isle of ...Where: audiobook. 
Leave a comment below. I will pick a name on Thursday 10am GMT.

When Liam Marshall’s best friend, Alex, loses his fight with colon cancer, he leaves Liam one final request: buy a ticket to Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, and scatter Alex’s ashes off the pier. Liam is tired, worn out, and in desperate need of a vacation, but instead of sun, sea, sand, and hot cabana boys, he gets a rickety old train, revolting kids, and no Ewan MacGregor. 

Liam would have done anything for his friend, but fulfilling Alex’s final wish means letting go of the only family Liam had left. Lost, he freezes on the pier… until Sam Owens comes to his rescue. 

Sam’s family has vacationed on the Isle of Wight every year for as long as he can remember, but he’s never met anyone like Liam. Determined to make Liam’s vacation one to remember, Sam looks after him—in and out of the bedroom. He even introduces Liam to his entire family. But as Sam helps Liam let go, he’s forced to admit that he wants Liam to hang on—not to his old life, but to Sam and what they have together

  3. I've never listened to an Audio book everybody seems to love them.


  4. My first audio book was Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone,too.
    It was Christmas Day. My daughter and I had the stomach flu. We
    were so miserable! Listening to that book was a wonderful distraction.
    I love audio books!

  5. I've never actually listened to an audiobook before. Would be cool to try it out! :-)

  9. This is one of my favorite books ever!!! I absolutely adored Liam and Sam! I will admit, I got a bit emotional at times. But that was what made the book even better, in my personal opinion. I've only listened to one audio book before, but I would love to try this one.


    1. Congratulations on being my winner, Trisha.

  10. I've been listening to audiobooks since I was a kid, so I have no idea what the first one I listened to was! Some of the best back then was Hank the Cowdog. Narrated by the author and hilarious. Still good, actually....


  11. The only one I've heard was Colm Toibin's THE EMPTY FAMILY...to be honest, I'd read the print version, and I was eager to hear one rather sexy (m/m!) tale read with authentic Irish accents. Sadly, the guy's voice felt all wrong to me, and it kind of killed my thrill...
