Taking Another Spin

The Classics Club is doing another spiny and of course I'm joining in. I've taken a bit of a short cut and recycled most of my list from the last spin, which saw me rereading Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent

(image via here- perfect table for a book spin, no?)
Here's my list of twenty classic books--a mix of some I'm looking forward to and some that I'm a little more reluctant about reading:

1. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
2. Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
3. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
4. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde
5. Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin
6. Howard's End by E.M. Forster
7. The House in Paris by Elizabeth Bowen
8. A Separate Peace by John Knowles
9. The Warden by Anthony Trollope
10. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
11. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
12. Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser
13. Cecelia by Fanny Burney
14. Ulysses by James Joyce
15. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
16. Othello by William Shakespeare
17. The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
18. Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen
19. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
20. To The Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf

Where will the spin land me this time?

The result is in and I'll be reading my #6 book, Howard's End!


  1. So it looks like you got Howards End! I envy you - it is beautiful and wonderful. I read it last year and just loved it.
    I drew Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates - something I've been meaning to read for a while now.

  2. i've never heard of a spin, but i've read about half of the books. enjoy!

  3. You are tempting me to join the Classics Club too.
