Priyanka Champaneri's Audiobook Picks

"My favorite audiobooks are ones that keep me completely engrossed during long drives. The books on my playlist range from memoir to young adult to comedic literary fiction, but they all share one commonality: the stories envelope you so completely that you'll be sorry to reach your destination."—Priyanka Champaneri, author of The City of Good Death

My Sister, the Serial Killer

A Novel

By Oyinkan Braithwaite
Narrated by: Adepero Oduye
Length: 4 hours 14 minutes

My Sister, the Serial Killer

My Sister, the Serial Killer is one of the best books to come along in quite a while — fast, funny, and completely engrossing. Oyinkan Braithwaite offers up a tale of Nigerian sisters Ayoola, a beautiful and sociopathic serial killer who destroys boyfriends, aware that all they ever want her for is her appearance, and Korede, a nurse whose average looks leave her continually passed up in preference for Ayoola. Still, taciturn and devoted Korede works hard to cover up her charming sister’s crimes. What will happen when they both fall for the same guy? At once a page-turner and a perversely righteous tale about the emptiness of physical beauty and the superficiality of being charmed by it, My Sister, the Serial Killer is entertaining, provoking, and utterly fascinating!”

Ghost Wall

A Novel

By Sarah Moss
Narrated by: Christine Hewitt
Length: 3 hours 48 minutes

Ghost Wall

“Sarah Moss writes with a lyricism and an intelligence unlike any other author, and in Ghost Wall she deftly weaves threads of history, power, gender, and obsession into a stunning story that envelops you from the very first page. Lovely and haunting, Ghost Wall is both a powerful glimpse at how humanity interprets its history and a chilling reminder that the lines between past, present, and future are not always as clear as they seem.”

The Stationery Shop

By Marjan Kamali
Narrated by: Mozhan Marnò
Length: 9 hours 13 minutes

The Stationery Shop

“I really enjoyed this beautifully written novel that transported me from past to present. The narrative takes you on a bittersweet journey from love to loss amidst a story of strong family bonds. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much in written form because it was so well narrated.”
