"Really enjoying listening to #TheOtherBoleynGirl… I’ve never delved much into historical fiction before, but I’m really enjoying this audiobook."
"Oh my gosh! I started listening to The Other Boleyn Girl last night on my way home from work and I was instantly hooked! I am so mesmerised by court goings on, Henry VIII and just EVERYTHING!... I have to go to Newport today to get my passport replaced urgently... and I’m almost excited for it as at least it means I get to listen to more of this."
