LA Times Book Club List 2023 - New & Best Books From LA Times List

There are so many book clubs out there to join, but one of the top non-celeb endorsed ones come from the editors at the LA Times.  We’re breaking down their complete reading list and letting you know about their latest book pick this month!

While Oprah may be known as the Queen of the Book Club, another really great option comes from the LA Times.  They usually focus on books and authors in the southern CA area, but they’re still some really great choices to check out no matter where int  the country (or the world!) you may live.

Besides just listing out their pick of the month, after it’s announced they’ll usually have a community event where they’ll invite the author to take part in a Q&A, overview, interview, and so much more.  You can get all their latest info here.

If you’re an avid reader like us, you may start to notice that sometimes some of the book clubs out there start to overlap.  But it’s always good to cross-reference some of the more famous ones like:  Read With Jenna and Reese Witherpoon’s Picks!  Heck, even Good Morning America has gotten in on the action!

One of the LA Times more popular picks has been The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett.  It’s made it on multiple best-seller lists too:

Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing.”

If you’re looking to get a complete list of all of their book picks from the last year, we’ll list them all below.  If any are on sale (so many of them are!), it’ll be marked with the sale price too – so hopefully you can save a bit.
