which english lit book should i study as a private candidate for a-level english lit?

For those who studied AS english literature, im studying as a private candidate and am trying to decide which book would be better to go forward with, sense & sensibility by jane austen or jane eyre by charlotte bronte, thoughts?
I like to keep my option open so would purchase both books or borrow from the library. My process is to listen to the audiobook, perhaps watch the film and select study guides. I read the books and write annotated notes within the books then head for Youtube for analysis. I look at ( https://scholar.google.com/ ),because I want to write something original and not regurgitate what other students write.

You are a legend!
The play I had chosen for my non-examined assessment has just been declined because my teacher didn't notice that I wasn't allowed to do a play in the first place :angry:

Anyway, I've decided on doing sense and sensibility either from a feminist perspective of a Marxism perspective but I've only just started reading it and stumbling across this is AMAZING!

Thank you so much, honestly.
