CC spin #26: the list

I’m going to participate in my first ever classics club spin! This is just too much fun and of course I’ve still more than enough books on my list left (current status: 4/50).

The goal of a classics club spin is to list 20 books from your CC list you still need to read in a random order. At the end of this week, a number is chosen and you have to read the book that corresponds that number on your list. In this spin edition, the deadline to read (and review) the book is the 31st of May.

I was already thinking about my next classic for April/May, so I’m sure this game will help me make a choice. This is my list:

  1. Utopia by Thomas More
  2. Dracula by Bram Stoker
  3. My cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier
  4. The fifth queen by Ford Madox Ford
  5. The trial by Franz Kafka
  6. The scarlet letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  7. North and south by Elizabeth Gaskell
  8. Tess d’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
  9. The prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
  10. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
  11. Lady Chatterly’s lover by D.H. Lawrence
  12. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
  13. Tender is the night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  14. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  15. The remains of the day by Kazuo Ishiguro
  16. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  17. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
  18. Far from the madding crowd by Thomas Hardy
  19. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoj
  20. The idiot by Fyodor Dostoeysky

Let’s see what we get on Sunday!

  1. I’ve read several of these and they were all interesting in some way but I loved North and South, Far from the Madding Crowd and Frankenstein. I hope you enjoy your first spin (and thank you for reminding me to create my own list for the spin)!

  3. This is a great list, with many I want to read and also some I’ve read already. I think, number 11 came up? I would have laughed if it had been number 10 (Vanity Fair). Would love to see a review of it – I don’t even know what it’s about.
