      I looked, but I guess you haven’t put your spin list up yet.

    Titus Andronicus is one of my favourite Shakespeare’s!

      I’m not familiar with it, which is why I put it on my list. Said to be gory, I think.

    That’s an interesting list. Of the few that I’ve read, The Sea Hawk and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall are my favourites. Good luck on Monday!

      I have actually read The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, although a long time ago. Haven’t read The Sea Hawk yet, though! Good luck to you, too!

    A lovely list! I’ve seen Mansfield Park and Tenant of Wildfell Hall on a few lists this round. Happy spinning!

    That’s a very interesting list, I’ve only read four of them. I would particularly like to read The Prince and Humphry Clinker.

      Your list is interesting, too. I’ve read nine of them. Which ones do you wish for?

      It’s new to me, too. I don’t know where I read about it.
