Christine PNW Jane Austen is not Victorian. Queen Victoria took the throne in 1837, and Austen died in 1817.

Also, the books by the two goodreads authors should not be here, since anyone who actually wrote anything during the Victorian era would be long since dead. It ended 114 years ago.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'll just clean that up.

ETA: Also removed Gulliver's Travels and The Monk (both 18th century), and The Seven Pillars of Wisdom (1920s).

Kim It's too bad, Anne of Green Gables is such a near miss! So many Victorian remnants in her books.
