Book List Numero Uno!

Okay, so I agonized over what to make this 1st book list. I am still not sure it is the right choice but well, it is MY list for you to take from it what you will.
Also, I have set some rules for myself:
~No kiddo books on adult book lists (although what some may call children's literature I may disagree with and vice versa)
~I will DO MY BEST not to repeat books but on certain lists that may be necessary
~I will ONLY include books that I have actually read at some point in my life which may skew the lists a bit because there are definitely some EXCELLENT classics that I have not gotten around to yet
I think that is it so without further ado I give you the First List

Top ten classics with a female lead character:

1. Till We Have Faces by c.s. lewis
2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
4. The Scarlet Letter by Nathanial Hawthorne
5. the Book of Esther from the Bible
6. Antigone by Sophocles
7. Emma by Jane Austen
8. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
9. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
10. Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

So there you go. I welcome comments or other suggestions.
