Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Northanger Abbey is my favorite novel of all time. And I re-read it about once a year, usually around the holidays. It's not one of Austen's best-known or most-beloved works, but I find that Mr. Henry Tilney is the most enjoyable male character in all of literature. Everyone loves to swoon over Mr. Darcy, but I'll take Rev. Tilney's witticisms any day. Personally, I prefer a man who makes me laugh to a man who broods.

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid." -Henry Tilney
