      I hope you’ll love Protect the Prince Lola!

  5. How many hours was the Diviners? I always listen to contemporaries, so they clock in 6-8 hours. I attempted Lord of Shadows and it was 24 hours. I was overwhelmed. Hooray for finishing the challenge!!!

  7. I love how easily you beat the first level! I have a harder time incorporating audiobooks into my lifestyle but I’ll keep the option open for later in my life! 😛 Good luck with level 2!
