100 Best Books by Smart Women, part one

So I've had this book journal lying around from a few years ago (see maybe ten) and anything I wrote inside it was useless and messy but I kept it lying around because it had two lists in that I thought future me might like to refer too.

Future me finally decided to do something with said lists.

Here is the first of them: 100 Best Books by Smart Women, well part one of it any way. (Again I take no credit for this list it was just in a book journal I had lying around and it says courtesy of Madison Public Library)

I wonder how many I've read. How many have you read? Do you recommend any of them?
covers have been used because they look nicer than me just writing for ages

Aphrodite  Bastard Out of Carolina I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings The Dollmaker
Cat's Eye Nightwood  Annapurna: A Woman's Place The Book of Dead Birds
Jane Eyre Rubyfruit Jungle The Good Earth (House of Earth, #1) The Secret Garden
Cold Sassy Tree Possession Silent Spring My Antonia (Great Plains trilogy #3)
Life and Death in Shanghai The Awakening The House on Mango Street Elders and Betters. by Ivy Compton-Burnett
Clear Light of Day The Red Tent Pilgrim at Tinker Creek Out of Africa
Rebecca Tracks The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down: A Hmong Child, Her American Doctors, and the Collision of Two Cultures Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Yellow Flowers in the Antipodean Room The Women's Room The Yellow Wallpaper The Mind-Body Problem, with foreword by Jane Smiley
July's People The Well of Loneliness The Furies The Bone People
Their Eyes Were Watching God The Haunting of Hill House Heat and Dust Now In November
Fear of Flying Lucy Animal Dreams Tripmaster Monkey: His Fake Book
The Stone Angel To Kill a Mockingbird The Golden Notebook Moon Tiger
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Zami: A New Spelling of My Name

So far I've only read one of the books on this half of the list - The Secret Garden. Theres a few of the more popular classics here that I own copies of but haven't read yet.

Am I really uncultured because classics are not something I ever pick up? :')
Anyway I hope you've seen a book or two that you'd like to read and had maybe forgotten about.
