This so lovely. I've found myself tearing up several times. And the author narrates the audiobook which is always a bonus.

I started reading this series because of the Fated Mates podcast and it has become such a comfort read for me. I've been reading them as slowly as possible so I don't run out. A great way to get out of a reading slump!

I usually listen to my audiobooks at an increased speed. I've been listening to this one at 2.5x on Scribd. When I slowes it to it's normal pace to share a chapter with someone, I found my mind wandering because it felt too slow. Does anybody else speed up their audiobooks? What's your default speed? Depending on the narrator I'm between 2x and 2.5x

dariazeoli Same! I do this with podcasts and YouTube, too. 1x sounds odd to me now 9mo

sprainedbrain I‘m usually at 1.75... I‘ve been increasingly slowly over the last couple of years. Normal speed just sounds weird now, but I do slow my favorite narrators back down to 1.25. 😃 9mo
xicanti I always listen at 2x, which is the highest any of my audio services go. I can‘t stand to listen at 1x. It‘s way. too. slow. and. de.lib.er.ate. 9mo

What Happened | Hillary Rodham Clinton

Trying to sneak this in when I can throughout the day. Have had to stop listening a few times after tearing up. It's amazing to listen to Hillary read this, definitely worth buying the audiobook. She's definitely allowing us to see a personal and vulnerable side of herself that I wasn't expecting.

BooksForEmpathy Yes I agree. It's been so powerful hearing her voice again. 2y

The perfect book for a fan of Wilder's Little House series. I laughed, I cried, I found myself unable to put this down. The nostalgia of revisiting the Little House world that I loved so much as a child made this even better. Caroline was a delightful and human narrator. Definitely recommend this one.

Bklover Can't wait to read this one!!! Soooo looking forward to it!❤️ 2y

I could not put this down. For fans of the Little House show, this is a definite must read. Alison took me on a rollercoaster of emotions; I found myself laughing aloud reading one page and tearing up several pages later. Her strength and courage shone through in her writing and I was happy to read about her successes. Very pleased to have spent my Sunday reading this!

Big trigger warning for physical and sexual abuse.
