Classics Club Spin #23

 

CCspin18.jepg

I have revised this list several times in the almost five years I have been at it. I want this to be a list of books I really want to read. I must finish by the middle of September and I believe I will be successful. And I am already planning list 2….

For now here are the last 7 and I am looking forward to all of them.

For anyone unfamiliar with the Classics Club, you can check them out here. The Spin is a list of 20* books from your list that you number 1-20. On a particular date the Spin Gods choose a number and that is the book you read to be completed by a certain date, usually within a month or so.

Good luck to all participating. Hopefully, I will see you with my Spin before June 1st….

*I am repeating the seven books I have left, instead of adding any new ones.

ETA: The Spin number is 6, which means I will read The Glimpses of the Moon, by Edith Wharton. Yes!

  1. Oh dear, this spin happened so fast I blinked and missed it! Glad you got one you’re looking forward to – hope you enjoy it! I haven’t read it so have nothing useful to say about it, but I look forward to reading your thoughts on it… ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I’m so curious about Glimpses of the Moon. I wish you’d get that one ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m also going to end my list at the end of this year – 8 books left. Can’t wait to start my new list already!

  3. I absolutely love Middlemarch and am itching to read it again, so that would receive my first vote! But To The Lighthouse was wonderful as well, although you have to be in the right mind-set for it. Some people love it and some people don’t. I hope you have a fantastic spin, Laurie!

  4. Seems there are a number of us near the end of our list, doing the very same thing. Some great reads here. Portrait of a Lady is the only Henry James book I’ve enjoyed. Hope you enjoy whatever we get.
