Need a few Audible book recommendations

I have four credits at Audible and want to put some books on there before my trip in February. I would particularly like to listen to books that are especially excellent in the Audible format, which is certainly not true of every good book. Practically any genre; I usually have a mix of non-fiction and fiction going on at any time and I intend to get four books that are different from each other.

I've recently enjoyed:

Non-Fiction

The Case Against Sugar (not flashy, but interesting and motivational for me to decrease sugar use)

Call Me God (story of the DC Sniper investigation, but not too graphic)

Inspired, by Rachel Held Evans (she's fun to listen to, brutally honest, and brings hope to me regarding faith and doubt)

Any Great Courses by Robert Greenberg, if you have interest in classical music.

Manhunt: The Twelve Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, by Leah Remini

Classics:

Jane Eyre narrated by Thandie Newton

Rebecca, narrated by Anna Massey

To Kill a Mockingbird, narrated by Sissy Spacek

The Chosen, by Chaim Potok, narrated by Jonathan Davis

 

I have also purchased Hidden Figures because I loved the movie, but I haven't listened to it yet.

Let me know if you find any gems.

All the Harry Potter books. I've been through them...12 times? More? 

 

Say Nothing - it was exceptional. About the The Troubles in northern Ireland. A NYT top 10 book last year. The narrator was great.

 

To kill a mockingbird 

 

The Year of Living Danishly

 

The Way I Heard It - so fun!

 

And I've loved the Ruth Galloway mystery series by Elly Griffiths. There are 11 out now.

@FriedClams, I do agree that the Audible version of Harry Potter are so awesome. Jim Dale (I think is his name) is an amazing narrator. Im listening to the first book now and will probably work through them all, even though I have physically read them several times. 

I read The Year of Living Danishly, which was terrific.

@Tiberia I read The Case Against Sugar two years ago. I found it fascinating, though disturbing in some ways, too. It was very good non-fiction. 

I read Faith Unraveled by Rachel Held Evans late last year and really related to her struggles with the faith. I am downloading Searching for Sunday by her. 

I should get Jane Eyre. I’ve been meaning to read it for a while.

I hope I'm not too late to give you my 2 cents. 🙂

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. Really great listen!!

My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell

All Creatures Great and Small  by James Herriot

True Grit by Charles Portis

and you can't go wrong with Jane Eyre!  My favorite readers are  Elizabeth Klett and Juliet Stevenson.
