Classics Club Spin #16

The Classics Club has just announced that it’s time for another Classics Spin!

In order to participate, you must create a list of 20 books from your Classics Club TBR list, by Friday November 17th. On this day, the Classics Club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is then to read the book on your list that corresponds with that number, by December 31, 2017. Sounds fun, right?!

Without further ado, here is my Spin List:

  1. The Shuttle, Frances Hodgson Burnett 
  2. Ruth, Elizabeth Gaskell
  3. The Group, Mary McCarthy 
  4. 1984, George Orwell
  5. Heidi, Johanna Spyri
  6. Watership Down, Richard Adams
  7. Mansfield Park, Jane Austen (Reread)
  8. Mariana, Monica Dickens
  9. The Return of the Native, Thomas Hardy
  10. Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh 
  11. The Portrait of a Lady, Henry James
  12. Emily of New Moon, L. M. Montgomery 
  13. The Custom of the Country, Edith Wharton
  14. Excellent Women, Barbara Pym
  15. The Priory, Dorothy Whipple
  16. Westwood, Stella Gibbons
  17. The Crowded Street, Winifred Holtby 
  18. Love in a Cold Climate, Nancy Mitford
  19. Vile Bodies, Evelyn Waugh
  20. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Betty Smith (Reread)

I tried to choose a mix of classics and modern classics, as well as lighter and more serious reads. Since the end of the year is fast approaching, I also steered clear of the chunkier classics on my list. I’ll be pretty excited to read any of these options.

I can’t wait to see which number is picked on November 17th!

Feel free to share/link your own spin list below! #CCSpin

    1. Thanks TJ! I’m really excited to finally read BR. I may have to pick it up soon even if it’s not the number that’s selected in this spin! Edith Wharton is also one of my all-time favorite writers. I’ll be so sad if/when I finish all of her works.


  1. 1984 is great, but a re-read of Mansfield Park sounds delightful for this time of year. It’s on my main list too but not my spin list – isn’t it great to have so many great books in the world to choose from? 😀

  2. Awww, I found another kindred reader! So many well loved in the list, many I too wish to read, and others totally new to me and intriguing titles. (I’m glad you found me and I found YOU!)

  4. Lovely list! I hope you get #11 because I adored that book, AND because there’s a new sequel out by a Booker Prize winner called Mrs. Osmond. 🙂 However, I also quite want to read your #13, so I wish you that one as well. Good luck! 😀
