On September 1996, Oprah Winfrey began her now-famous book club, Oprah’s Book Club. Over time, what began as just a segment of her daytime talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, became a phenomenon, with readers clamoring to get their hands on her latest pick. By the time the show had left the air, Oprah had recommended a whopping total of 70 titles. And now, the recommendations have only continued. Most recently, Winfrey celebrated her historic 100th book selection.

“It was over 26 years ago that I started Oprah’s Book Club because I wanted to get the whole country reading and connecting over what I thought were great stories,” she explained in a recent Instagram post. “I wasn’t sure at the time that the idea would even kind of work, but he we are, we’ve read 99 books together and so today it is my great pleasure to announce my 100th Book Club selection.”

From candid celebrity memoirs to heart-wrenching fiction and captivating non-fiction books alike, Winfrey’s recommendations over the years have it all. So, in honor of her major 100-book milestone, we’ve compiled a list of the most highly-rated books she’s ever picked. And though we’d love to read and rate them all ourselves, we used GoodReads to determine all the best ones – all the scores above 4.2 out of 5 were added. Check out some of the incredible titles below!
