Didn't even occur to me to include Jane Eyre - great call!

Great list! The only one I've read (so far) is Jane Eyre and I wholeheartedly agree with that pick.

I've seen The Thirteenth Tale on several lists, and I think it's an excellent addition. I've never read it, but The Girl with the Glass Feet sounds intriguing. Nice list, and thanks for sharing!

I've only read #4 on your list and I didn't really like it.

I know that I have at least #s 1, 2, 8, 9 & 10 sitting on my shelves though!

I didn't realize that Jane Eyre was Charlotte's firs novel. Very interesting. Great list of debut novels.

I've read several of these and I agree with your choices. My aunt keeps pushing me to read some Kate Morton but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I've heard a lot of good things about her!
