An audiobook is a great way to keep on ‘reading’, even when your eyes are too tired or your hands are otherwise occupied. You can now have celebrities read their own stories to you at your convenience and comfort.
Here is a list of must-listen celebrity memoirs available on Audible for when you’re walking the dog, driving in your car, cleaning the house, or just laying in bed:
Me by Elton John
This book might not fit the description perfectly because Taron Egerton, the actor who played Elton John in Rocketman, voices the majority of Me, John himself reads the introduction and epilogue. Me reveals the truth about the ‘Tiny Dancer’ singer’s incredible life so far, from his childhood dreams to his hidden drug addiction to raising a family with the love of his life.
Inside Out by Demi Moore
Inside Out details actress Demi Moore’s battle with addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma as well as her relationship with her mother, her three marriages, and raising a family while juggling a skyrocketing career.
In Pieces by Sally Field
In Sally Field’s memoir, the actress opens up about childhood trauma, her lifelong feeling of loneliness, and her incredible career. This includes her famous Oscars acceptance speech as well.
Becoming by Michelle Obama
Released in 2018, Becoming explores the former FLOTUS’ life — from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years living at the world’s most famous address with then-President Barack Obama.
Open Book by Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson is exactly that: An open book. In her 2020 autobiography, the pop star reveals her most intimate struggles, guided by the journals she has kept since she was 15. The Audible audiobook also includes six new songs by the singer: ‘Heartbeat’, ‘Practice What You Preach’, ‘Sweet Temptation’, ‘Your Fool’ (featuring Willie Nelson), ‘Party of One’ and ‘Free Will’.
Bossypants by Tina Fey
You’ll keep on laughing during Tina Fey’s audio recording of her book Bossypants, which details her Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock years, her friendship with Amy Poehler, being a ‘woman in comedy’ and motherhood. The book is funny, but the audiobook is funnier.
