Book Club Queen

The Oprah Book List

The Most Popular Book Club Around the Globe

Our version of the Oprah book list.

Oprah. Who doesn't love her? We here at Book Club Queen certainly do!

Well before she cornered the market with Oprah's Book Club and her top book reviews, she was an inspiration to women all over the world. Her voice is strong, her arguments opinionated, her causes worthy.

Little did we know back in 1996 when she started Oprah’s Book Club, that she would propel many a fledgling author to fame as they each joined her dinner discussion and took seats on her couch. Of course, she pulled from top selling authors as well. After slowing down in 2002, Oprah was back in action and for the next several years she opened up Oprah book club books to include classics, memoirs, and nonfiction. Our Oprah favorites are below.

If choosing one of the Oprah book club books is your thing, here you can find selections from the ever popular book club!
