The Classics Club: Spin #20 Result

Last week, The Classics Club announced their 20th Spin event. The idea for which is to list 20 books remaining on our Classics Club lists, numbered 1-20, and the number announced today is the book we have to read by the 31st May 2019. So the results are in and our spin number is…

19

Which means I will be reading The Time Machine by H. G. Wells, which I think it a great result for me. I have long wanted to read this but just don’t seem to be getting round to it – in fact The Time Machine is left over from my first list – so this will finally give me the push I need. Not sure I will make the deadline though, as I have Howards End by E. M. Forster to finish before I start this.

Have you read this? If you also took part, what was your result?

  1. I enjoyed this – obviously it’s dated in some ways, particularly when you think of when it was written – but it was a good read for me. I look forward to seeing what you make of it.

  2. Ooh, good one! I enjoyed re-reading this last year – Wells is so great at incorporating ideas into good stories. Hope you enjoy it! I got Nevil Shute’s On the Beach, which I’m really looking forward to, too. πŸ˜€

  3. This is an exciting day with the spin result. So many bloggers I follow participate. I have not read The Time Machine so I look forward to your review.

  4. I think that’s a really good result, Jessica. I read The Time Machine for my first Classics Club list and thought it was fascinating. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it. πŸ™‚

  5. I hope you enjoy The Time Machine, but agree you shouldn’t rush Howards End. Forster’s novel was a favorite the year I read it and is on my current CC list to reread.
