The Classics Club | Spin #22

Hello my fellow bookworms, I’m pleased to announce it’s time for The Classic Club’s 22nd Spin! To join in simply list any 20 books that remain on your Classics Club list before Sunday, 22nd December 2019. On that day, the club will announce the winning number and then all you have to do is read the corresponding book by Friday, 31st January 2020. Here is my list:

  1. Lady Susan by Jane Austen
  2. The Watsons by Jane Austen
  3. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen [re-read]
  4. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen [re-read]
  5. The Marvellous Land of Oz by Frank L Baum
  6. Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë
  7. The Professor by Charlotte Brontë
  8. A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
  9. Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
  10. Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens [re-read]
  11. The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
  12. The Black Tulip by Alexandre Dumas
  13. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy [re-read]
  14. Kim by Rudyard Kipling
  15. The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling
  16. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
  17. The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari
  18. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
  19. Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott [Re-Read]
  20. Heidi by Johann Spyri

I haven’t dramatically changed anything – Instead my only changes are the replacements for the books I have read from the list since the last Spin. The books chosen to fill in the gaps are all re-reads, which along with the short, children’s classics already on my list, I hope will help bump my numbers up.

Come back next Monday to discover what the result is. Wish me luck and bye for now!

I’d love to hear what you think: Off my list what book do you think would be good for me to get? If you are taking part in the Spin too please link in your post in the comments below, so I can come check out your list too.

  1. Ooh, so many great ones there! Either of the Burroughs are great fun – I think Tarzan especially. The Austens, of course, and Nicholas Nickleby is one of my favourite Dickens’. And have you really never read Anne of Green Gables?? I kinda hope you get it… 😀

    1. FF, I would be very happy with one of the Burroughs, Austens or a comforting re-read of Nicholas Nickleby for the festive period. And yes, I have really never read Anne of Green Gables, in fact, as a child, I had never even heard of it! 😀

  2. It seems like no time at all since the last CC spin. You have some great titles on your list. All the children’s classics were favorites of mine as a girl, so you would be in for a real treat with any of them. I also think Dickens can be quite comforting to read or re-read in the winter. Nicholas Nickleby is my favorite of his early novels by quite a long way. I hope you enjoy whatever the spin lands on.

  3. That looks like a great list. I loved Anne of Green Gables and Black Beauty as a child, so I hope you get one of those. Good luck!
