Another Classics Club Spin!

The Classics Club has just announced spin #18, where club members post a list of 20 classics and the spin chooses a number. You then pledge to read and post a review of that book by August 31.

So, with no further ado, here is my list:

  4. Madame de Treymes by Edith Wharton
  5. Miss Buncle’s Book by D. E. Stevenson
  6. Edward II by Christopher Marlowe
  7. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  8. Kenilworth by Sir Walter Scott
  9. The Heir of Redclyff by Charlotte M. Yonge
  10. The Old Man’s Birthday by Richmal Crompton
  11. Greenery Street by Denis MacKail
  12. Mary Lavelle by Kate O’Brien
  13. Challenge by Vita Sackville-West
  14. I Go by Land, I Go by Sea by P. L. Travers
  15. The Viscounte de Bragelonne by Alexandre Dumas

    I loved Miss Buncle’s Book! It’s delightful. I also loved Aurora Floyd and The Good Soldier. I’ve read several by Wilkie Collins but not that one, so I’m curious about it. And Greenery Street is another wonderful Persephone. Good luck with the spin!

      I have read all those except Aurora Floyd. I hope you get a good one!

    I plan to post my spin on Sunday or Monday, depending on how I feel after the #reversereadathon.
    I’m a HUGE Austen fan, so I will always wish you an Austen spin.

    Loved your introductory post on the cc blog by the way. You’ve set a nice tone for the rest of us to follow. Hope your visit with your brother went well too.

      Oh, thanks so much. We’re having a good time.

    Lots of good stuff on your list! I hope you get Humphry Clinker because it’s on my own CC list, and I don’t think I’ve seen any reviews of it around the blogosphere before. Whatever you get, I hope you enjoy it!

      Yes, it might be interesting. I haven’t read too many novels from that early before.

    That’s a great list. I’ve read about half of those books and particularly enjoyed The Vicomte de Bragelonne, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Aurora Floyd. Good luck!

      I think I took the Vicomte from a review that you wrote.

    We’ve both got The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (different spot). Good choices here.

    • whatmeread July 29, 2018 / 3:39 pm

      Yes, I noticed that! I think I read it years and years ago but am looking forward to reading it again.

    Fun list! I love The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Miss Buncle’s Book, and Mansfield Park is also on my spin list (as a re-read). I’m looking forward to reading This Side of Paradise and Greenery Street too. Good luck and happy reading!

    Ha! I have Tenant of Wildfell Hall on mine too. That’s probably the one I’m most interested in reading. I do enjoy anything Austen though… Which one are you most hoping for?
