The strangest thing happened to me. I spent forever searching my shelves for a good book that begins with the letter N, but the only one I could find besides Northanger Abbey was North and South, which I haven't even finished yet. Nevertheless, I know it's a wonderful classic, so I'll put it down anyway.
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen - Strangely enough, I think this is my favourite Jane Austen of all! It definitely makes in into the top two. (It might just be because I fell in love with Henry Tilney, but I also have a soft spot for innocent, imaginative Catharine, who reminds me of myself often.) Full of humour, it is a satire on gothic novels.
