The Classics Club: Spin #17

It’s time for The Classic Club’s 17th Spin and my first spin since creating my brand-spanking new list. To join in simply list any 20 books that remain on your Classics Club list before Friday, 9th March. On that day, the club will announce the winning number and then all you have to do is read the corresponding book by Monday, 30th April. Simples! Here is my list:

  1. Little Men by Louisa May Alcott
  2. Emma by Jane Austen [re-read]
  3. The Tenant of Wildfel Hall by Anne Brontë
  4. The Professor by Charlotte Brontë
  5. A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  6. Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
  7. The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
  8. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  9. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  10. Howards End by E M Forster
  11. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  12. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy [re-read]
  13. Kim by Rudyard Kipling
  14. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
  15. The Enchanted Castle by E Nesbit
  16. Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott [Re-Read]
  17. Heidi by Johann Spyri
  18. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
  19. The Time Machine by H G Wells
  20. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

I will do an update post tomorrow with the result. Wish me luck!

Are you taking part too? What book would you like me to get?

  1. That’s a great list. My favourites are The Moonstone and The Count of Monte Cristo, but there are others that I’ve enjoyed too, as well as some I haven’t read and would like to. Good luck tomorrow – not long to wait now!

  2. Ooh, you just scraped in at the end there! I’d like you to get either Tarzan of the Apes because it’s on my CC list too (though not on my spin list, I think) or The Time Machine because I re-read it recently and would enjoy hearing your thoughts while it’s still fresh in my mind. Good luck! 😀

    1. FF, do you mean I scraped in with my post? I actually wrote it last week and scheduled it for the day before the result… All part of my master plan 😀 I’m afraid I didn’t get either Tarzan or The Time Machine, although I would have been happy with either of those. Instead I got The Tenant of Wildfel Hall by Anne Brontë, which I am very pleased with. 🙂

    1. Hello Cleopatra, thank you for stopping by and commenting. 🙂 And my result was The Tenant of Wildfel Hall by Anne Brontë, which I am very pleased with! I hope you also got a book you are pleased with.
