Classics Club Spin #24

classics-spin-image

Time for another spin and with eight reading weeks allowed I think I can do it this time! I’ve duplicated a couple of titles in my choice of 20 from my original Classics Club list, because I really need the push to read them! On August 9th the numbers will be spun and the corresponding title is the one I’ve got until September 30th to read.

  1. Confessions of an English Opium-Eater by Thomas de Quincey
  2. Old Goriot by Honore de Balzac
  3. The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan
  4. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
  5. Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev
  6. The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James
  7. The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  8. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
  9. The Outsider by Albert Camus
  10. Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev
  11. Seize the Day by Saul Bellow
  12. The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
  13. The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
  14. A Passage to India by E.M.Forster
  15. The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan
  16. The Outsider by Albert Camus
  17. Old Goriot by Honore de Balzac
  18. Confessions of an English Opium-Eater by Thomas de Quincey
  19. The life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne
  20. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

This is the third time I’ve joined in with a spin and looking back at the previous two lists, I see they’re pretty much the same titles, not that I’m putting them off or anything!

  1. 8 weeks? I had put thoughts of joining in aside this time around as I’m feeling swamped with books at the moment. But an 8 week window sounds manageable. Especially if I include the books I know that I want/need to read anyway! (That’s really not cheating, right? 🤫)

    You have a great selection here, Jane. I loved The Bell Jar, much to my surprise.I was equally surprised by how much I enjoyed Wildfell Hall which is currently my favourite Bronte book. Good luck!
