The Classics Club Spin: My List

 

63269-classic2bspin

It’s time for another  Classics Club Spin. By 23 September compile a Spin List of twenty books that remain ‘to be read’ on your Classics Club list.

On that day the Classics Club will randomly pick a number and that will be the book to read. You then have until the 31st October 2019 to finish your book and review it.

I have only 13 unread books left on my list  so, I’ve repeated seven of the titles to make the numbers up to 20.

  1. The Riddle of the Third Mile by Colin Dexter
  2. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  3. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  4. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  5. Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell
  6. Smallbone Deceased by Michael Gilbert
  7. Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
  8. The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
  9. Murder by Matchlight by E C R Lorac
  10. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  11. All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarqu
  12. Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope
  13. Orlando by Virginia Woolf
  14. The Riddle of the Third Mile by Colin Dexte
  15. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  16. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  17. Smallbone Deceased by Michael Gilbert
  18. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
  19. The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
  20. Murder by Matchlight by E C R Lorac

I’m quietly hoping it will be Murder by Matchlight or Smallbone Deceased, but any of them will be OK.

  1. I’d love for you to get either of those, too, Margaret. But the rest of your list looks great as well. I have a soft spot for Colin Dexter’s work, so I especially have my eye on that one for you…

  2. I am taking part in the Spin too, Margaret. I’ve not read either of the books you fancy getting. However I loved Oliver Twist and Far From the Madding Crowd – the latter I have on my list for a re-read – and All Quiet on the Western Front was very good too. Good luck with the Spin!

  3. Some good ones here! I read a lot of Thomas Hardy in college and I’m going to read All Quiet on the Western Front soon. My son read it in college, so we now have a copy. I’ve only read A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens, but I feel like I should read a couple others. Good luck with your list 🙂
