Classics Club Spin #19

CC spin logoThe Classics Club has announced a spin for the end of this month. If you post a numbered list of 20 of your Classics Club books by November 27th, the club will spin to pick the number of your next read for the club. The deadline for reading the book and posting a review is January 31, 2019, so the club has challenged us all to put our biggest tomes on the list because of the extra reading time.

So, with no further ado, here is my list. I will say ahead of time that I have no idea whether some of these books are tomes are not:

  1. To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
  2. The Expedition of Humphry Clinker by Tobias Smollett
  3. Challenge by Vita Sackville-West
  4. Aurora Floyd by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
  5. The Viscount de Braggalone by Alexandre Dumas
  6. Madame de Treymes by Edith Wharton
  7. The Old Man’s Birthday by Richmal Crompton
  8. The Good Soldier by Ford Madox Ford
  9. Oroonoko by Aphra Behn
  10. Owls Do Cry by Janet Frame
  11. Evelina by Frances Burney
  12. The Lady and the Unicorn by Rumer Godden
  13. Joanna Godden by Sheila Kay-Smith
  14. Mary Lavelle by Kate O’Brien
  15. Kenilworth by Sir Walter Scott
  16. The Last of the Wine by Mary Renault
  17. The Prince by Machievelli
  18. The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
  19. Memories: From Moscow to the Black Sea by Teffi
  20. The Winged Horse by Pamela Frankau

Happy reading to everyone, and I hope the spin selects a good book for you.

As it is Thanksgiving Day here in the U. S., Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

    Happy Thanksgiving! We don’t celebrate it, of course, but I’m always up for any excuse for pie… 😉 Hope you get a good spin – I’d quite like you to get Humphry Clinker since I’ll be reading it soon and would be interested to hear what you think of it.

      Hmm, it’s kind of cheating, but I’ve already read it, just haven’t posted a review.

    Ooohh, To the Lighthouse! I am going to add that one to my second list. Or you hoping for a specific number?

      I hadn’t thought about it.

    Yes, Happy Thanksgiving and Good Luck with your list!

    That’s an interesting list, with a few books I know nothing about. I have The Brothers Karamazov on my list too, but at a different number. Good luck!

    I can certainly tell you that The Brothers K is a tome and a half!! I got it for an earlier spin and it was a challenge!

    Good luck 🙂
