The Classics Spin #14

Hello, lovely readers!

It’s time for another Classics Club Spin! Participants post a list of 20 books on their Classics Club list. On Monday morning (October, 3th), a random number will be selected by the Club. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by December 1st, 2016.

As you might know, I’m committed to reading only classics by women. Here is my spin list:

  1. The Sundial, Shirley Jackson
  2. Spinster, by Sylvia Ashton-Warner
  3. The Edwardians by Vita Sackville-West;
  4. Selected Poems, by Marina Tsvetaeva;
  5. Suite française, Irène Némirovsky;
  6. The Bell, by Iris Murdoch;
  7. The Street, by Ann Petry;
  8. The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett
  9. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Muriel Spark
  10. The Play Room, by Olivia Manning
  11. My Cousin Rachel, Daphne du Maurier
  12. Mathilda, Mary Shelley
  13. Letty Fox: Her Luck by Christina Stead
  14. The Collected Prose, Elisabeth Bishop
  15. Anne Of Green Gables, LM Montgomery
  16. The Enchanted April, Elizabeth von Arnim
  17. Eva Trout, by Elizabeth Bowen
  18. Excellent Women, Barbara Pym
  19. A Game of Hide and Seek, by Elizabeth Taylor
  20. The Hearing Trumpet, by Leonora Carrington

Spin me a number, Classics Club! And happy reading to you all!:)

Yours truly,

J.

    Great list! Some I love – the Muriel Spark and the du Maurier – some I’d love to read, like the Shirley Jackson or the Mary Shelley – and others I know nothing about but am now intrigued by! Hope you get a great pick on Monday 🙂

    The Hearing Trumpet is on my list, too, but not of Classics Club. In fact, I think I’ve abandoned it unintentionally, the list that is. But, I would like to read this book. I even bought it with that intention. A few years ago.

    We share a couple of titles in common this spin, but your whole list looks great.

    I read My Cousin Rachel for a previous spin – it was tremendous in a manipulative, psychologically disturbing way 🙂

    1. Your list is great, Brona! I’ve read The Bell Jar, Stoner and Picture of Dorian Gray, and enjoyed all of them. And now I am curious to read My Cousin Rachel… 🙂
