Classics Club Spin Time!!!

Classics club spin time!

Simply post a list of 20 books from your classics club list. On Monday, 12 May, the classics club blog will post a number from 1 through 20. Simply read the corresponding book by July 7th.

I failed to get to my pick last time, but I’m determined to see the challenge through this go.

Here’s my list:

1. The Professor by Charlotte Bronte
2. Basil by Wilkie Collins
3. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
4. Desperate Remedies by Thomas Hardy

Books by Iris Murdoch
5. Under the Net
6. Flight from the Enchanter
7. The Sandcastle
8. The Bell

Penguin Threads
9. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
10. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
11. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
12. The Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum

From my TBR Challenge
13. Green Darkness by Anya Seton
14. Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton
15. Westwood by Stella Gibbons
16. Mariana by Monica Dickens

Virago Books
17. Roman Fever by Edith Wharton
18. The Three Sisters by May Sinclair
19. Summer will Show by Sylvia Townsend Warner
20. Diana of Crossways by George Meredith
Let me know in the comments if you’re playing along; I’d love to check out your list!


  1. I’m joining in with the spin too, but I don’t think we have any books in common.
    The Bell is my favourite Murdoch, I studied it for my English Lit A-Level and really need to get around to rereading it.

  2. What a great list. Mariana has my favourite opening ever, I love The Custom of the Country, and I’d be curious to know what you make of The Three Sisters, which I read last year.

  3. You can’t go wrong with Edith Wharton, though I have to admit that I only know Little Women from your list. I made up my own categories this time, and I’m really excited about the spin.

  4. I have The Custom of the Country on my list too. I think this is the first spin where I’ve found books in common with other bloggers. I’ve never heard of Roman Fever but I just love Wharton.

    All the best for your spin choice!

  5. Mariana is on my list as well. Haven’t heard of May Sinclair before. Always good to see some names unknown to me on the classic spin lists.
