Classics Club Spin #13



I think these Spins are such a good idea. They help me feel part of a community, so when I first joined the Classics Club I was excited to participate in my first one.

Technically this is my third Spin. I read War of the Worlds for the first one and enjoyed the experience so much I opted for the next one. We will not discuss that bomb of an attempt…sigh. Ever the glutton for punishment, I believe the third time is a charm 🙂

I have been reading many modern classics and want to get back into something earlier than the early 20th century, so my list is made up of books before 1852.

We find out Monday, June 6th which number to read which will be posted on August 1st. If you are reading on Sunday, join up, it’s not too late!

ETA: Number 15 was chosen for the spin and I reviewed Nathaniel Hawthorne’s  The Blithedale Romance . Yes…read and reviewed!

  1. Can’t go wrong with Austen, Bronte or Gaskell, and though I haven’t read those particular ones by Dickens or Hawthorne, I expect they’re good too. Female Difficulties sounds interesting — I’ll have to look that one up! Hope you enjoy your spin pick.
