I am currently listening to the third book in a series by JK Rowling published under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith. Quite good, in my opinion. They are detective novels. Hope there are more.

This past fall, JK Rowling confirmed that she is working on a 4th Cormoran Strike novel. :D

I'm listening to Captains and the Kings by Taylor Caldwell, audio narrated by Susie Berneis. Had an urge to revisit it. Hard to believe this is over 40 years old now. So far it's quite gripping and holds up quite well.

Amazon. I think the book was out of print for a while, but it recently came out as an ebook and on audio. I snatched it up and added the audio to it when I bought it. I've been wanting to re-read it for a few years now.

I wish they'd put Gone with the Wind on audio! Keep checking without success.
