The Classics Club Spin 7 - Let's try this again, shall we?

My lucky Classics Club spin - #17 it is! All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy

The Classics Club's time again. Since they started doing this, I've only managed to succeed once with Wide Sargasso Sea on spin 5. We're supposed to challenge ourselves by choosing a mix of titles like 'books I can't wait to read, books I'm dreading, etc.' but since I have so much reading on my plate already for August and September, I'm just going to choose a list of 20 shorter books. We will see how this goes...

  1. The Lambs of London, Peter Ackroyd
  2. A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess
  3. Moravagine, Blaise Cendrars
  4. The Devil and Miss Prym, Paulo Coelho
  5. The Collector, John Fowles
  6. The House of Seven Gables, Nathaniel Hawthorne
  7. Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
  8. What Maisie Knew, Henry James
  9. Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
  10. Slaughterhouse Five, Kurt Vonnegut
  11. Ethan Frome, Edith Wharton
  12. Orlando, Virginia Woolf
  13. The Plague, Albert Camus
  14. Howard's End, E.M. Forster
  15. The Sylph, Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire
  16. She, H. Rider Haggard
  17. All the Pretty Horses, Cormac McCarthy
  18. The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plateh
  19. Perfume, Patrick Suskind
  20. Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh

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.

    I always love Wharton, so I'd have to vote for Ethan Frome. That said, Woolf is always good, but lately I've had a strong desire to read some of Camus' works.

    From my list I hope I get either Camus' The Stranger, or Hamlet. But tomorrow will tell, won't it?

    I hope you have a great spin, Michelle!

  2. I love Frankenstein!

  3. I'm not committing to anything for a bit with my Japan adventure on my plate but Slaughterhouse Five is on my list and Frankenstein! Good luck!

  4. Good luck with All the Pretty Horses. It's one I haven't read, so I will look forwrd to your review :-)

  5. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! If you're spinning, good luck with your #17. :)
