Hello, I'm new here and I'm looking for recommendations. It's been awhile since I read anything that could be classified as "classic literature". I was an English major in college and miss it so much. Here is a list that may help in giving me recommendations:

Books/Authors I Really, Really Like:
Anything by Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, L.M. Montgomery, Harper Lee, and Laura Ingalls Wilder
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Joy in the Morning by Betty Smith
Wives and Daughters and North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
The House of Mirth and The Buccaneers by Edith Wharton
The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
Antigone by Sophocles
My Antonia by Willa Cather
Howards End and A Room with a View by E.M. Forster
Tess of the D'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
Metamorphosis and The Trial by Franz Kafka
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Life with Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse


Authors I Can't Stand Even Though I Know They're Great Writers: John Steinbeck, Charles Dickens, Emily Bronte, Daniel Defoe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ernest Hemingway, William Golding, W. Somerset Maugham









Hope you can help feed my craving for classics! ;)
