  1. I have Invitation to the Waltz on my spin list as well. And an Edith Wharton (House of Mirth) and a Muriel Spark (Memento Mori). I recently read The Yellow Wallpaper – it’s disturbing but in an interesting way! Plus it’s short, which is always a bonus. Let’s hope Lady Luck is kind to all of us. I still haven’t finished the book from the last spin (Mary Shelley’s The Last Man) because it’s so long and frankly I found it hard-going and have put it to one side, for now.

    1. Thank you, Cathy! You have a great list! From your spin list, I’ve read – and loved – The Good Earth, The Price of Salt (Carol), Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and The Enchanted April. So I guess luck is on your way 🙂 Happy reading!
