  1. Looks like you will be reading a fun one! It’s one I’m interested in, too, so I look forward to reading your thoughts on it.

    1. Thank you, Robin 😊 I am really looking forward to reading Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, as I loved Around the World in Eighty-Days and really enjoyed Journey to the Centre of the Earth as well. 😃

  2. Gosh, there’s so many great books on your list you can hardly go wrong! I was going to hope we both get Mansfield Park, but since we have it on different numbers I guess that’s not going to happen… 😉

    1. Aw it’s a shame that we don’t have Mansfield Park at the same number! Would be nice to re-read it together. But great to hear that I can hardly go wrong with my result from this list! 😁

  3. Can’t go wrong with Austen, of course! But I’m hoping you get something new-to-you. Hmm. This is such a great list, you’re basically set up for success no matter what. Which one shall I wish upon you? Ah, I see it: The Lost World! I’ve read through *most* of Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series but never anything else of his. I’d love to see what you have to say about this one.

    1. Aw thank you, Adam! 😊 It is great to hear I am set up for success whatever the result. I must admit I’d be pretty happy with any of these being the result this time. Although I would be very happy with The Lost World, as I loved ALL of Doyle’s Sherlock novels and short-stories. 😁

  4. You still have some lovely children’s classics to discover. Anne of Green Gables in particular was a favorite of mine years ago, but I think it would still hold a charm for an adult audience. I hope you enjoy whatever the spin lands on.

    1. Hello Karen, thank you for stopping by and commenting. It is always so nice to hear off a new face, especially someone who is a fellow Austen fan! 😊 I think I’ll be pretty happy whatever my result, as I am excited to read all of these! Looking forward to seeing what’s on your list. 😃

    1. Hello Kathy, thank you for stopping by and commenting. Always lovely to hear from a new face. 😊 Fingers crossed whatever the result, I will enjoy it and if you are taking part in the Spin too, I hope you enjoy your result! 😃
