The Western Lit Survival Kit (Part C): Austen to Faulkner

I'll be interested to see how this challenge fares relative to the adjacent "BBC Art's 100 Novels". (Update. My list has less than a third of the users of the BBC Art's list, even though the latter is an exact duplicate of a list published a day or so earlier. Sigh.)
This is the 3rd and final instalment of a challenge derived from "The Western Lit Survival Kit: An Irreverent Guide to the Classics, from Homer to Faulkner" (Sandra Newman, 2012).
Some observations from the source book: "Adam Bede is strictly for reading when you're in a hostel in Thailand, miles from the nearest bookstore, and it's the only book left behind by previous travellers that's not in German. (No, I don't mean "or similar situations." This is literally the only situation in which we can guarantee you'll love this book)".
