Queen Anne
by Anne Somerset

History has not been particularly kind to Queen Anne, the last Stuart monarch, who was overweight, suffered from a chronic illness, and tragically lost 17 children to miscarriage, stillbirth, and childhood illness. To make matters worse, one of her closest friends from childhood, Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, used her memoirs to disparage the queen after the two had a falling out over politics. More recently, however, scholars have come to see her in a new light

Alias Grace
by Margaret Atwood

The basis of the six-part miniseries, ALIAS GRACE follows Grace Marks who has been convicted for the vicious murders of her employer and others in the mid-1800s. Though she’s serving a life sentence for the crime, Grace has no memory of the murders and an up-and-coming expert in the field of mental illness is determined to solve this mystery. Fans of Margaret Atwood’s bestselling novel THE HANDMAID’S TALE (and the Hulu series) will be just as captivated by this fascinating story of memory, murder, and the thin line between innocence and guilt.

These series adaptations are now streaming on Netflix.

The Last Black Unicorn
by Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish is almost ludicrous in her humor, but her story is also eye-opening about the foster care system and cycles of poverty. You wouldn’t guess that someone like Tiffany Haddish—ultimate fun girl—would have such a powerful memoir, but it goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover. And the added tidbits she throws into the audiobook are gold, making this a must-listen audiobook.
