Classics Club Spin #27

I just posted a new Classics Club list last week, and coincidentally, now they have announced a spin. The way it works is, if you want to participate, you pick 20 books from your list and post that list. The spin picks a number, and that determines which book you read next. The deadline for reading the book this time is August 22.

Since I have a new list to work with, I decided to pick 20 of the books I want to read most. Here they are:

  1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  2. The Bride of Lammermoor by Walter Scott
  3. The Black Arrow by Robert Louis Stevenson
  4. Grand Hotel by Vicki Baum
  5. Weatherley Parade by Richmal Crompton
  6. The Woods in Winter by Stella Gibbons
  7. The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
  8. Much Dithering by Dorothy Lambert
  9. A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
  10. The Moon Spinners by Mary Stewart
  11. Miss Plum and Miss Penny by Dorothy Evelyn Smith
  12. Rhododendron Pie by Margery Sharp
  13. Merkland, A Story of Scottish Life by Margaret Oliphant
  14. The Dead Secret by Wilkie Collins
  15. The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
  16. Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
  17. The Methods of Lady Waldenhurst by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  18. Music in the Hills by D. E. Stevenson
  19. Phineas Finn by Anthony Trollope
  20. The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole

    Good luck! I’ve read eight of those and particularly enjoyed The Moon-Spinners, The Return of the Native and Our Mutual Friend. I will probably be posting my list tomorrow.

      Those are a few rereads, although I don’t have as many on this list, and I don’t really remember The Return of the Native, although I’m sure I read it.

    This spin was great timing for your new list! The only book I’ve read here is The Castle of Otranto but I hope you enjoy whichever number we get. Good luck đŸ™‚

      I read that way back in high school! I hope you get a good one, too!

    That’s a great list, I’ve read eight of them. I have The Black Arrow on my own list.

    What a gorgeous list of books, I hope you get something really summery sounding like Rhododendron Pie!

      Yes, that would be a great one!

    It’s great when you just have a new list! I’ve only got a few stragglers left on mine so probably won’t do it this time. So many good or appealing ones here! I recently listened to an audiobook of The Return of the Native and loved it, so I’m hoping you get that one…

      Oh good. I know I must have read it long ago, but I don’t remember it.
