This year I plan on reading at least six classic novels.  I am an avid reader and often times find myself reading novels that are currently on the bestseller list.  There is nothing wrong with that and I will most likly continue to read those books but I also know there are some amazing classic's out there that I have not read yet.  I am going to start with the following:

Their Eyes were Watching God -Zora Neale Hurston

An African-American woman in 1930s rural Florida finds freedom and self-knowledge through a personal journey encompassing three very different marriages.

Beloved - by Toni Morrison

Morrison’s heart-breaking novel tells the story of a woman who escapes from slavery to freedom in Cincinnati but remains haunted by her daughter’s murder.

Tess of the D’Urbervilles - Thomas Hardy

Tess is ruined when her father’s vanity forces her to seek the favors of rich relations, and her life becomes a study in the grim reality of her times.

A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens

This dramatic story of Paris and London during the Reign of Terror contains some of Dickens’ most memorable characters—Madame Defarge with her knitting and the self-sacrificing Sidney Carton.

Ethan Frome - Edith Wharton

An unhappy couple attempts suicide but find a far worse fate in this tale of irony and retribution in rural New England

The Good Earth - Pearl S. Buck

This Pulitzer Prize winner follows Wang Lung’s family from their early struggles to live off the land to their final disintegration as they move to the city.
