Could you recommend some audiobooks?

I'm seeking audiobook recommendations for books that are escapist, engrossing, generally feel-good, and fast-paced (without being frightening).

Great examples of what I'm looking for:
- Ready Player One
- The Fault In Our Stars
- The Descendants
- This Is Where I Leave You
- The Golden Compass
(maybe; I read it on paper, so it might not have worked for me in audio)
- Every Day
Stepping back and looking at that list, it seems to be likable and somewhat humorous main characters either on external quests or confronting something big in their life?
I asked about audiobooks two years ago
, and I've read a lot of those suggestions -- thank you! For me the trickiest thing about finding audiobooks is that I lose interest easily unless something clear is propelling the story forward, whether that be external events or character development. I used to listen to a lot of mystery, thriller, and dystopian stuff - they definitely keep the plot moving! - but I'm looking for something that isn't too scary or dark right now. Any suggestions? Thanks for your ideas!
