Classics and Modern Novels Make the List 

The list starts off with a bunch of classics such as Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and Anna Karenina to name a few. Woman & Home’s list leans towards the classics and you can never go wrong with those. But that is not all that is on their list. 

Sprinkled throughout the list are books that are considered great by critics but wouldn’t make most of the best books of all-time list. Books such as Midnight’s Children, Passing, and The God Of Small Things. These are great additions and I love the inclusion of these books even though many people would argue against them.
