Oh geeze! I haven’t read Northanger Abbey (I can’t seem to get into Jane Austen’s work no matter how hard I try). However I do know a little bit about the works she mentions in the novel. Catherine could be talking about either Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho or The Italian. Here is a link to a list of the Northanger Horrid Novels.
Followers, if I’m wrong, please feel free to correct me!
My copy of Udolpho has an amazing introduction (full of spoilers) that mentions it is referenced in Northhanger Abbey. :3
