The Classics Spin #17 #ccspin

The Classics Spin, an occasional challenge run by The Classics Club where the reward is great reading. What could be better?

I usually fail miserably at this, but here I am, trying again. Go me!

We are supposed to kind of challenge ourselves with this list, but my list is constrained by 1) books I'm able to find at the moment (yes, it's that kind of situation with my massive home library) and 2) I'm trying to choose short books. Otherwise, I know I'll fail.

To see my entire Classics Club list, visit the tab in the menu at the top. Okay, here goes...
  1. Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh
  2. Orlando, Virginia Woolf
  3. Rabbit, Run, John Updike
  4. The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath
  5. The Collector, John Fowles
  6. Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
  7. Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf
  8. In Cold Blood, Truman Capote
  9. Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen
  10. Something Wicked This Way Comes, Ray Bradbury
  11. Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck
  12. Breakfast at Tiffany's, Truman Capote
  13. Murder in the Cathedral, T.S. Eliot
  14. The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
  15. The Princess of Cleves, Madame de Lafayette
  16. Roxana, Daniel Defoe
  17. Roderick Hudson, Henry James
  18. Cheri (with The Last of Cheri), Colette
  19. The Painted Veil, W. Somerset Maugham
  20. A Woman of No Importance, Oscar Wilde

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I was worried about length too, and so I took off almost all the doorstops. There's plenty of others I'm just as worried about that aren't so long!

    I found Bell Jar to be way quicker than I expected it to be.

  2. If #4 spins up we will share The Bell Jar, although i confess I'm hoping for one of the sci-fi books on my list this time.

    I read Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time recently, it was different to what I expected.
