The Classics Club Spin for May/June

The Classics Club It’s time for another Classics Club spin!

Here are the rules:

* List any twenty books you have left to read from your Classics Club list.
* Number them from 1 to 20.
* Next Monday (May 12th) the Classics Club will announce a number.
* This is the book you need to read during May and June!

Here’s my list:

  1. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  2. Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor by R D Blackmore
  3. Out of Africa by Karen Blixen
  4. Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
  5. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  6. The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
  7. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  8. Where Angels Fear to Tread by E M Forster
  9. Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome
  10. The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling
  11. The Call of the Wild by Jack London
  12. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  13. Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
  14. Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes by Robert Louis Stevenson
  15. Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  16. Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
  17. Barchester Towers (Barsetshire Chronicles, #2) by Anthony Trollope
  18. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  19. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
  20. The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf

Some of these books have been on my shelves for several years now, so it’s definitely time to read at least one of them soon. Two of them are re-reads (1 and 15) but as I read them so long ago I really want to read them again. At the moment I’m undecided about which one to read first (although I’m half hoping it will be Out of Africa) so a spin result is a good way of choosing!
