1) The author of this book is considered an iconic member of the Beat generation. Lesser known than his On The Road, this work is about a mountain climbing trip.
2) This character has so many short stories written about him that there are two huge volumes. He lives as 221b Baker Street. (I hope you pick this book if you win:))
3) This well-known children's classic has been made into more movies than almost any other I can think of. It also spawned a series of books. It was originally published in 1900 and illustrated by W.W. Denslow.
4)This Dickens novel was made into an 8-hour Masterpiece Theatre show featuring Gillian Anderson. (*hums X-Files theme song*) There is a character named Sir Leicester Dedlock.
5) This epic is usually the go-to book that people say they aim to read at some point in their life. It is more than 1,300 pages and the original Russian title is Война и мир.
6) This book's author only ever wrote one book. She was friends with Truman Capote. The themes of the Southern gothic novel are racial injustice and the destruction of innocence.
7)This F. Scott Fitzgerald work, published in 1925, showcases the lavish lifestyle of some characters on Long Island and is narrated by Nick Carraway.
8) This one is one of my ultimate favorites. What, you don't know it already? It is set primarily in France and is the ultimate tale of exacting revenge on your enemies. Characters include Luigi Vampa and Monsieur Villefort.
9) Ben Barnes recently played the title character in a movie of this book. It is Oscar Wilde's only published novel.
10) This is a sweeping story of tangled passions and the rare courage of a group of people in Atlanta during the time of Civil War. It won the Pulitzer in 1937 and the author wrote it while recovering from an auto accident.
