Audiobook recommendations? Light, funny, or inspirational

Hello! I know there are always "What are you reading?" threads. I think this is a more specific question. I signed up for a free trial of Audible on Amazon and forgot about it. I am ready to cancel but I have 5 credits I need to use up first or they will disappear.

Can anyone share books they've "listened to" and would recommend for purchase on audible? I do want to eliminate a few categories. I cannot handle anything remotely scary or violent. I also don't like sad or dramatic or serious mystery. I'm also not looking for historical in this case.

Past audiobook listens or purchases include: some Harry Potter, Gretchen Rubin, a couple of books written by comedians, chick lit etc. lol. Light listening lol.
I was considering a Dave Ramsey book? (Old student loan & Cr card debt.) Really open to ideas. I'm just a HSP (highly sensitive person.)

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

I just finished Chrissy Metz's audiobook (the book is called This Is Me). She reads it and she's a hoot. I loved it. Her message of kindness and gratitude really spoke to me.

These are funny:

Girl Tripping by Gina Lamona
The Dixie Divas series by Virginia Brown


These are light, easy, feel-good reads:

Cobbled Court Series by Marie Bostwick
The Number One Ladies Detective Agency Series by Alexander McCall Smith (Nothing scary - I promise!)

I highly recommend My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Backman. I listened to it and loved it. Heartwarming.

I highly recommend The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon. It is an inspiring book about 10 ways to fuel your life with positivity.
