For those of you who listen to audio books, what chic lits ones have you listened to? Which ones would you recommend?

Can you Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella is pretty good in audio, although the narrator gets a little annoying at times.  Devil Wears Prada is excellent, as is The Nanny Diaries.  I didn't really care for Everyone Worth Knowing though.

I tend to listen to more mysteries in audio.  For some reason it just works better for me on the commute.

I listened to The Devil Wears Prada on a trip. I really enjoyed it, but I accidentally picked up the abridged version, because when I read the book, I was totally confused.  The girl that reads it has the PERFECT voice for that book. Before the movie came out, she sounded exactly how I imagined Emily would sound.

 I guess most people listen to audiobooks on their commute? I have about a 10-15 minute commute, so it would take me forever to listen to a book  :)

I listen to them when I commute, but I am waiting on my MP3 to come in the mail. Once it does, I will be 'reading' and doing dishes, walking the dog, working out...I can't wait! I've listened to a few audio books that I would NEVER finish if I was reading them. Isn't that weird how that works?

I have requested all of the ones you guys suggested from the library already. Any other suggestions? <grin>
