If you ever decide to read another Austen novel (well they're all great, but my least fav is Sense & Sensibility), I vote for Northanger Abbey. It was her first although published posthumously. She was pretty young when she wrote it. It's definitely not as polished and as serious as her later novels, but it's kind of adorable and Tilney is my favorite Austen leading man. The book is flawed but charming. She wrote it to make fun of gothic novels, while also sort of celebrating them, it's a bit cheeky.
