Classics Club Spin

It is time for another Classics Club Spin!  If you're not familiar with The Classics Club, go here to find out about it and sign up (because once you read about it, you'll want to sign up.)  The premise of the spin is easy: pick 20 books from your list and number them.  A number will be randomly chosen and you will read the book that corresponds with that number.

Last time around, I failed miserably.  I don't think I even started the book (though in all fairness, I was in a serious reading slump.)  This time around I've picked 20 true classics that have been around for a while (instead of the more recent classics on my list.)  I won't mention which numbers I'm hoping are not picked!

  1. Uncle Tom's Cabin - Harriet Beecher Stowe
  2. The Age of Innocence - Edith Wharton
  3. Pamela - Samuel Robetson
  4. Native Son - Richard Wright
  5. The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists - Robert Tressell
  6. Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad
  7. The War of the Worlds - H.G. Wells
  8. The Time Machine - H.G. Wells
  9. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  10. Journey to the Centre of the Earth - Jules Verne
  11. The Woman in White - Wilkie Collins
  12. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
  13. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
  14. Mansfield Park - Jane Austen
  15. Emma - Jane Austen
  16. Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen
  17. Candide - Voltaire
  18. Les Miserables - Victor Hugo
  19. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie
  20. The Pilgrim's Progress - John Bunyan


  1. Good luck! I hope for your sake it'll be either Austen, Wharton or Christie, all favourites of mine. The Woman in White is also on my list - have you read any other Collins? He'll be a new-to-me author. My own spin picks will be posted tomorrow, I'm still debating whether or not I actually want to include 900-page books :p

    1. I haven't read any Collins and I'm kind of excited to get to The Woman in White. The length of Classics books always factor into the making of my list!

  2. Good luck with the spin! I did the first 2 and I'd really like to do this one as well. But I've promised myself to read Les Mis in September already! Hmm.

    1. I'm split in half with my success of the spin. I hope to get it this time. I added Les Mis to my list but that was a very tough decision!

  3. I really really hope you get no.11! The Woman in White is the best book EVER and I think everyone needs to experience how amazing it is. Good luck :)

    1. I really want to read it, and have it on Kindle but just haven't gotten to it. Even if it's not picked for the spin, I hope to get to it by the end of this year.
