Classics Club Spin #21 List

It’s time for another Classics Club Spin! I am so grateful for this prompt because otherwise the classics on my TBR list would get pushed down to the bottom. Having this nudge is a life-saver.

I chose 20 books from my master list and put them in a random number generator. Here’s the result:

1. The Last Gentleman – Walker Percy

2. Beloved – Toni Morrison

3. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall – Anne Bronte

4. The Master and Margarita – Mikhail Bulgakov

5. Quicksand -Nella Larsen

6. Ceremony – Leslie Marmon Silko

7. The Gowk Storm – Nancy Morrison

8. Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury

9. Wives and Daughters – Elizabeth Gaskell

10. The Blue Castle – L.M. Montgomery

11. Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy

12. The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde

13. 1984 – George Orwell

14. The Woman in White – Wilkie Collins

15. Crossing to Safety – Wallace Stegner

16. Howard’s End – E.M. Forster

17. A Study in Scarlet – Arthur Conan Doyle

18. The Sweet Dove Died – Barbara Pym

19. The Warden – Anthony Trollope

20. Native Son – Richard Wright

I’ve got some chunksters in there which makes me a bit nervous, but I’ve got to read them sometime. We’ll find out Monday which number is picked and I’ll post then. I’ll have to read and review my classic by October 31.

What would be your pick from my list?

  1. Oh dear, I’m torn! I want you to get The Gowk Storm, of course (I promise you’ll like it more than Dr Moreau 😉 ) but I’m hoping for number 9 for me, which would give you Wives and Daughters… well, that sounds OK, actually – one I’d like to read sometime myself. So I hope you get number 9! 😀

  2. Selfishly I would hope you land on Lesley Marmon Silko’s Ceremony, as I’ve been looking for a co-reader for that book for ages. *laughs* I’m sure you’ve already drawn your number…I’ll go take a look.


  3. Beloved would make a great read for Halloween because it has some horror elements. I’d recommend that one, but also Quicksand as well, which is a great read (as well as Passing, also by Larsen). Native Son is also a good one that I think is still a highly relevant read that still reflects present social issues.
