June is Audiobooks Month, and today we’re gonna celebrate by taking a look at some standouts. I’ve narrowed down the best audiobooks I’ve listened to in the past 12 months.
I’m a fussy listener (I bail on audiobooks that don’t work for me), so this list is Only The Best Stuff.
Let’s start with great audiobooks expertly narrated by their authors…
We’ve got 3 celebrity memoirs
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
- Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen
- We’re Going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union
And one celebrity-penned short story collection
And in the realm of audiobooks read by professional narrators…
Some amazing nonfiction
- Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann
- Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover
Some magnificent fiction
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
- Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
- Be Frank with Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson
My fellow listening readers… What’s the best audiobook you’ve listened to this year?
