My List

  1. Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor by R D Blackmore
  2. Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
  3. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  4. Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
  5. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  6. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
  7. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  8. The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
  9. Romola by George Eliot
  10. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  11. The Forsyte Saga (1) by John Galsworthy
  12. Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell
  13. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  14. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  15. Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
  16. The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling
  17. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  18. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  19. Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope
  20. The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf

I’d like no.19 to come out as the spin number, as I’ve recently finished reading Anthony Trollope’s Doctor Thorne, or no. 20 as that would fit in with Heavenali’s Virginia Woolf read-along, or maybe no. 15 as it’s been ages since I read anything by Thomas Hardy. But actually I’m happy to read any of these books.

  1. I loved The Forsyte Saga so much, I’d love to reread it one day – all of it!

    We share The Voyage Out this spin, which would be a handy one for Ali’s Woolfalong as well 🙂

    Happy spinning!


  2. That’s a great list. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favourite books and I’ve also enjoyed Lorna Doone, Far from the Madding Crowd and Framley Parsonage. Good luck on Monday!


  3. You do have such a nice list of classics there, Margaret. So many great books there! I’ll be really keen to see which way the dice go…


  4. Great list! I’d happily read or re-read everything on it with the possible exception of the Gaskells, which for some reason I never really got along with. Just because I’m a Dickens fan, I hope you get one of them… 🙂
