The Classics Club Spin #20

The Classics ClubHow time flies because it’s time for another Classics Club spin. I definitely need a prompt to read a book off my list. In fact, my spin list below could pretty much be a copy of my list for the previous spin 😦

For those unfamiliar with how the spin works, here are the step-by-step instructions:

  • At your blog, before Monday 22nd April 2019, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. This is your Spin List.
  • You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period.
  • On Monday 22nd April, the folks at The Classics Club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by 31st May, 2019.

  1. I’m taking part in the Spin too and hoping that it will pick a Dickens’ book for me. I’ve read five of yours and of those I enjoyed Gaudy Night the most. I hope you’ll enjoy the spin book that comes up.

  3. What a great list! Wuthering Heights and Katherine are two of my favourite books. I love Rosemary Sutcliff too but haven’t read The Flowers of Adonis yet, so I’d be interested to hear your thoughts if you get that one.

  4. I’ve read seven of yours, including Gaudy Night which is a favourite but I also loved a Tree Grows in Brooklyn recently.


  5. So we share no. 5! 😄
    The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is a beautiful story, I read it many years ago but it resonates until now. I wish you’d get that!

    Have fun with the spin reading!
