Classics Club Spin #33!

Classics Club has announced another spin. How does a spin work? Members post a numbered list of 20 of the books from their Classics Club lists by Sunday, March 19. The club picks a number, and that’s the book members try to read and post a review of by Sunday, April 30. Anyone can participate who has a Classics Club list registered with the club.

So, here is my list for the next spin:

  1. Isa’s Ballad by Magda Szabo
  2. Cecilia, Memoirs of an Heiress by Fanny Burney
  3. The Book of Dede Korkut by Anonymous
  4. Love’s Labour’s Lost by William Shakespeare
  5. Miss Mole by E. H. Young
  6. Weatherley Parade by Richmal Crompton
  7. Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
  8. A Double Life by Karolina Pavlova
  9. Hero and Leander by Christopher Marlowe
  10. The Tree of Heaven by May Sinclair
  11. The Tavern Knight by Rafael Sabatini
  12. The Prophet’s Mantle by E. Nesbitt
  13. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs
  14. The Passenger by Ulrich Alexander Boschwitz
  15. Merkland, A Story of Scottish Life by Margaret Oliphant
  16. Tis Pity She’s a Whore by John Ford
  17. The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
  18. The Moorland Cottage by Elizabeth Gaskell
  19. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo

    I know nothing about most of those books, but I enjoyed Our Mutual Friend, The Moorland Cottage and Les Miserables. Sabatini is usually fun too, although I haven’t read that particular book. Good luck!

    I have never read an Elizabeth Gaskell novel but I’ve only heard good things about her stories.

    My spin pick is a short story collection Murder in the Mews by Agatha Christie

    (Btw, I have a mystery-focused book blog now called Moose Mysteries

      I saw that. I haven’t heard of that Christie before. I hope you have fun reading it.

    Since I’m late, I know what you got. I haven’t read much Gaskell but have enjoyed what I have read. Don’t know this one at all, but I hope it turns out to be a winner!

      I must have read a review of it, because before I put it on my list, I hadn’t heard of it before. It sounds like it might be a gothic story. Many of the writers at this period wrote them.

        If so, that should be great. I loved The Old Nurse’s Story, which is one of her short ghost stories – wonderfully done!

    I’m looking forward to finding out what you think of Moorland Cottage.
