CC spin #28: my result

Last Sunday, the spin number of edition 28 was revealed. And the lucky number is 12! So if you have a look at the list that I made for this challenge, you’ll have figured out by now that my book is….

‘Love in time of Cholera’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez! I believe some people might not yet consider this a classic, but I added some more recent books on my list. I must admit this result scares me, as Marquez is one of those authors I’m afraid of without knowing why specifically.

I just think it’s because I didn’t have luck with other South-American authors I’ve tried? 🤷‍♀️ Also, the English version on Goodreads is said to have only 348 pages, but I remember it being longer? And then I checked to Dutch version and it’s 510 pages! What a difference that is?

Anyway, as it’s a Spanish novel, I’ll read it in the Dutch translation and I hope it will be available in the library (it’s not at the moment) before 12th November, the deadline of this Spin edition.

Have you read this book? Any motivational thoughts?

  1. I had Chronicle of a Death Foretold on my spin list, but it wasn’t #12. 😃 I haven’t read anything by Marquez yet, either. I’ll be eager to hear what you think!
