Classics Club Spin

It’s time for another Classics Club Spin.

I have just 2 books left on my Classics Club list, so I’ve started to compile a new list. and have added 18 of these to make up my Spin List. Tomorrow 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 12 December, 2021.

Here’s my list:

The first two are the ones left to read on my old list

  1. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  2. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  3. Another Part of the Wood by Beryl Bainbridge
  4. Out of Africa by Karen Blixen
  5. Death in the Tunnel by Miles Burton
  6. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
  7. The Awakening by Kate Chopin
  8. Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad
  9. Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
  10. Daisy Miller by Henry James
  11. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  12. Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay
  13. How Green was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn
  14. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D H Lawrence
  15. 1984 by George Orwell
  16. Night at the Crossroads by Georges Simenon
  17. Pietr the Latvian by Georges Simenon
  18. The Small House at Allington by Anthony Trollope
  19. Strangers on a Train by Patricia Wentworth
  20. Between the Acts by Virginia Woolf

I suppose I really should just read the first two books but I really fancy reading one of the books from my new list. And a little bit of what you fancy does you good according to the English music hall song. What do think?

  1. I have Strangers on a Train and Nicholas Nickleby on my spin list too, but at different numbers. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favourite classics, but if you would prefer one of your new books, I really enjoyed How Green Was My Valley. Good luck!


  2. I think you’ve chosen some great additions, Margaret. Wherever the spin lands, I think you’ll have a good experience. If you get Picnic at Hanging Rock, I’ll be especially interested in what you think. It’s not a long story, but it’s full of atmosphere and I think it’s unsettling and effective for that.

  3. How exciting to have a new list, I can’t wait! I read The Awakening a few years ago and remember enjoying it apart from that you have a few I want to put on my next list especially Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Hope you get a good one tomorrow!

  4. Since I intend to break the rules by reading a book from my second list at Christmas (Dickens) before I finish my first list, I think your plan is great! Of course you know the Spin Gods will defeat you by picking one of the old ones, don’t you? 😉
