My List for Classics Club Spin #28

The Classics Club has announced another spin. How do the spins work? I pick 20 books from my Classics Club list and number them. On October 17, the club picks a number, and that’s the book I will read before December 12, the deadline for this spin. So, here is my list for this spin. This time, I haven’t picked any of the difficult books on my list:

  4. Rhododendron Pie by Margery Sharp

  6. Grand Hotel by Vicki Baum
  7. Merkland, A Story of Scottish Life by Margaret Oliphant
  8. Miss Plum and Miss Penny by Dorothy Evelyn Smith
  9. Love’s Labour’s Lost by William Shakespeare
  10. The Dead Secret by Wilkie Collins
  11. Much Dithering by Dorothy Lambert
  12. A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
  13. Weatherley Parade by Richmal Crompton
  14. The Moonspinners by Mary Stewart
  15. Iza’s Ballad by Magda Szabo

    I’ve read a few of those and particularly enjoyed The Moonspinners and The Return of the Native. I hope the spin picks a good one for you!

      Me, too! Is there one in particular you wish to read from your list?

        I’m hoping for Black Narcissus but would be happy with most of them!

      • whatmeread October 14, 2021 / 10:12 am

        That’s a great one!

      I don’t think I’ve read this one, but I may have long ago. Hoping it will be new.

    Good luck with the spin! I’ve read a few on your list and enjoyed them very much (Rhododendron Pie; Miss Plum and Miss Penny; The Grand Sophy; Much Dithering; Sense & Sensibility and The Moonspinners).

    The Return of the Native is also on my list! But… you haven’t read Sense & Sensibility yet? Hm…

    • whatmeread October 14, 2021 / 10:10 am

      Yes, I have. It’s a reread. I get to sneak in a few rereads of my favorites every new list.

    I’ve recently read rave reviews of Black Arrow and Rhodendron Pie, so I’d love to see what you think of either of these.

    • whatmeread October 14, 2021 / 10:13 am

      Oh good! You have quite a few on your list that I’m familiar with.

    I read Black Arrow recently and it’s pretty fun, but that’s a Wilkie Collins I’m curious about so I hope you get that one!

    I’ve only read a few of these – A Town Like Alice, Sense and Sensibility, The Return of the Native and The Grand Sophy – and enjoyed them all, but there are plenty of the others I’d like to read, especially The Black Arrow! Hope you get one you enjoy!

  7. Robin October 14, 2021 / 3:14 pm

    Well, you can’t go wrong with that list! Enjoy your spin book!

    I love Sense and Sensibility, but the Castle of Otranto could be fun and Rhododendron Pie and Miss Plum and Miss Penny sound fun too – good luck!
