The Classics Spin #5

It's that time again...Classics Spin time! I probably shouldn't be doing this because I already have a ton of reading on my plate over the next two months, but I missed the last spin so I want to jump in again. I'm going to choose my list according to the Club's suggestion of five Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.) However, I'm adding Doctor Zhivago to one of the groups since I technically have not started it and I need to read it for Lit Collective. Maybe I'll get lucky and it will be the number chosen (fat chance, right?).

Five I'm kinda, sorta dreading
1. Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak
2. Sons and Lovers, D.H. Lawrence
3. Silas Marner, George Eliot
4. The Count of Monte-Cristo, Alexandre Dumas
5. Tom Jones, Henry Fielding

Five I just can't wait to read!
6. The Once and Future King, T.H. White
7. The House of Seven Gables, Nathaniel Hawthorne
8. Perfume, Patrick Suskind
9. Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
10. Frankenstein, Mary Shelley

Five I'm neutral about
11. Ben-Hur, Lew Wallace
12. Mansfield Park, Jane Austen
13. The World According to Garp, John Irving
14. 1984, George Orwell
15. A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess choice, IOW...shorty books (wink)
16. The Lambs of London, Peter Ackroyd
17. The Plague, Albert Camus
18. Moravagine, Blaise Cendrars
19. What Maisie Knew, Henry James
20. Wide Sargasso Sea, Jean Rhys

What's on your Classics Spin list?

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. Wide Sargasso Sea! That's one I've been meaning to read for ages. I hope you enjoy it Michelle!
