    Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

    Written by one of the most well-known female authors of all time, Jane Austen’s premiere novel, first written when she was just 19, is bursting with romance, humor and incredibly lovable characters. The old-fashioned language might be a little out-of-date, but the way Austen writes is totally timeless.

    Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

    Arguably the most epic love story of all time, this novel will capture your heart just as it has for millions of readers. Written by the daughter of a suffragette who made her own feminist strides holding down a job as journalist when it was uncommon for women to work, this tale of the Civil War, post-war reconstruction and the equally unconventional heroine Scarlett is an all-time classic, for sure.

    Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

    Writing this tale when she was only 18 years old, Mary Shelley unknowingly founded a new genre of literature. Despite intial critical reviews, the book was hugely popular and adapted many times over for stage and film. Thanks to her story of reanimation, science fiction books now engage readers of all ages across the world.
