Classics Club Spin # 20!

It’s time again for another Classics Club Spin. I am so grateful for these Spins or else I really would take ten years to complete my list instead of five. Here are the rules:

At your blog, before next 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.

On Monday 22nd April, we’ll 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.

This is perfect timing for me because I will be DONE WITH THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO soon! (Maybe even tonight.) Woo-hoo!

Here is my Spin List (in alphabetical order by author:)

  1. Fahrenheit 451 – Bradbury
  2. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall – Bronte
  3. The Master and Margarita – Bulgakov
  4. The Woman in White – Collins
  5. A Study in Scarlet – Conan Doyle
  6. Great Expectations – Dickens
  7. Love Medicine – Erdrich
  8. Howard’s End – Forster
  9. Cold Comfort Farm – Gibbons
  10. Nightingale Wood – Gibbons
  11. The Thin Man – Hammett
  12. Jonah’s Gourd Vine -Hurston
  13. Quicksand – Larsen
  14. The Blue Castle – Montgomery
  15. The Gowk Storm – Morrison
  16. Quartet in Autumn – Pym
  17. Ceremony – Silko
  18. The Warden – Trollope
  19. Brideshead Revisited – Waugh
  20. Stoner – Williams

We’ll see what number they draw on Monday.

Have you read any of these?

  1. I loved The Blue Castle, Howards End, Brideshead, Tenant, Woman in White, and both Gibbons’ novels, so I’ll hope you get one of those. Congrats on finishing Count of Monte Cristo!!

  2. The Gowk Storm! The Gowk Storm!!! THE GOWK STORM!!! Oh, sorry about that – got quite carried away for a moment… 😉 Otherwise, I hope you get either A Study in Scarlet or The Warden, both of which I loved. Or The Master and Margarita, which I haven’t read so I’d like to hear your thoughts on it. Good luck!

  3. I have Jonah’s Gourd Vine (and every other Hurston work!). I recently chose to DNF Fahrenheit 451. I read Quicksand and Howard’s End ages ago. I love Quicksand and recommend it over Passing. In fact, I used to teach Larsen’s novella in my Black Lit class. I don’t remember much about Howard’s End.

  4. Oh the possibilities! I see a lot of favorites on here and a few I’ve been wanting to read myself. I have acquired several books by Trollope and haven’t read any of them.

    I am not doing the spin this time since I already have Monte planned for the next couple months. That’s definitely going to keep my busy. Congrats again for finishing!
