Hey, Hey, Hey…Look at Little Sister: The Last Bookstore’s Little Sister Bookstore is a Bibliophile’s Dream Destination

A Photo Tour of Lost Books Bookstore in Montrose 


Tucked between the San Gabriel Mountains, Angeles National Forest, and neighboring La Cañada Flintridge in Southern California, is Montrose, or La Crescenta-Montrose. A community that welcomes visitors with its array of shops, beautiful views of Los Angeles, and now, a must-see bookstore. 


With a vibe borrowed from Yuko Kitchen which is near big brother bookstore, The Last Bookstore, in Downtown LA, the new store features plants arranged creatively. You walk in under an arch of life that feels like stepping into a fantasy world. 

Lost Books is a hidden gem of a bookstore. It is a destination for bibliophiles in Southern California and visitors to the area. If you enjoy visiting bookstores, this one needs a place on your list. 


The bookshelves are arranged in a spiral design that makes you feel like you’re venturing down the rabbit hole. Maybe you are, as there is an array of old and new books to delight and awe booklovers. 


You can find Lost Books, the little sister bookstore to The Last Bookstore, at 2233 Honolulu Avenue, Montrose, CA. It is about 25 minutes from DTLA and close to Glendale.
