Classics Club Spin 18 #ccspin

Update: The spin was #9. My selection...drumroll, please...Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen! Perfect for Austen in August!

The 18th Classics Club Spin! My last one didn't go well. Rabbit, Run by John Updike. UGH! Read all about it here.

Here's what you do...list 20 books from your Classics Club list before August 1. The Club will choose a number randomly from 1 - 20 and that number is the one you will read from your list. Fun! The challenge is to read that book by August 31.

Here's mine:
  1. Emma, Jane Austen
  2. Roxana, Daniel Defoe
  3. The Diary of Anne Frank
  4. Cheri (with The Last of Cheri), Colette
  5. The Collector, John Fowles
  6. Murder in the Cathedral, T.S. Eliot
  7. Cranford, Elizabeth Gaskell
  8. The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
  9. Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen
  10. The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath
  11. The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury
  12. Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
  13. Something Wicked This Way Comes, Ray Bradbury
  14. The Painted Veil, W. Somerset Maugham
  15. The Age of Innocence, Edith Wharton
  16. In Cold Blood, Truman Capote
  17. Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh
  18. Roderick Hudson, Henry James
  19. The Princess of Cleves, Madame de Lafayette
  20. Mansfield Park, Jane Austen
Since my reading schedule is already crammed full, all of these pretty much scare me. lol

Never miss a post!

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 have been terrible at my classic readings. It took me months to finish off Anne Bronte's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. And War and Peace is taking a lot longer than it should. I have other stuff to work on the next month but I really want to do the next spin! Good luck on yours. I hope you get Frankenstein! I'm tempted to reread it this Halloween!
