I loved taking part in The Classics Club Spin last time and was desperate for it to happen again as I am rubbish at choosing what to read next.
The rules are as follows:
1. List 20 books from your Classics Club list.
2. Number them 1-20.
3. Wait until Monday when a random number is selected.
4. You have May and June to read that book.
Last time No 14 was picked and so I read Charlotte Bronte’s Villette. I am going to stick with the same list, just adding a new book to replace Villette Due to work and the fact I won’t be on holiday during this time I haven’t selected any of the longer/tougher books n my lists, wisely choosing to safe those until the summer holidays.
Books I have Studied
1. East Lynne by Ellen Wood
2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
3. Tess of the D’Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy
4. The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
5. Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
The Dickens List
6. The Old Curiosity Shop
7. Great Expectations
8. Little Dorritt

15. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H.Lawrence

So yes here is my list and I eagerly anticipate Monday and the magic number.
