1. You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero

I love You Are a Badass at Making Money with a deep passion. When I start having negative money thoughts, I fire up this audiobook and let Jen kick my ass. It is an encouraging book and one I have listened to well over 10 times.

2. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Little Fires Everywhere blew me away with the character development and story. I hated to see the book end because I wanted to know what happened to the characters. Outstanding writing.

3. Rising Strong by Brene Brown

Rising Strong came at just the right time in my life. The first chapter was so good, I listened to it twice before moving to the second one. Then, I listened to that chapter twice. I could relate to the stories and they touched me deeply, reminding me I belong to me and that matters more than anything else.

4. Spoonbenders: A Novel by Daryl Gregory

Spoonbenders is an incredible book simply because of the storytelling. Character development was some of the best I have read in a really long time. I loved this book and the family. Period.

5. Crimes Against a Book Club by Kathy Cooperman

The things a mother will do to make money and make sure her children are taken care of. Crimes Against a Book Club was funny and touching all at the same time. I could relate to the characters and loved how it kept me listening.

6. I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons by Kevin Hart

I Can't Make This Up is so long, but worth it. Get the audiobook. Period. Kevin goes off script so many times and it is a very funny book.

7. The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

The Girl Who Drank the Moon is a young person's book, but the audiobook has an incredible narrator in Christina Moore. It is a beautiful story.
