The Classics Club Spin #10: My Spin List


The Classics Club is doing another Spin!  Below is my list of twenty books I haven’t yet read taken from my Classics Club List.  I chose books that I already own, and that feel at least sort of like Autumn to me (though I can’t explain why because I’ve never read these books). Some of them are lengthy and more difficult reads, some of them are short and should be easy to get through, and some of them I’ve deliberately put off (I’m looking at you Decameron).  On Monday, a number will be chosen, and I’ll be reading the corresponding book.  Depending on which book it is, I may or may not do a read-along.

  1. Albee, Edward: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
  2. Dumas, Alexandre: The Count of Monte Cristo
  3. Remarque: All Quiet on the Western Front
  4. Smith, Betty: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  5. Boccaccio, Giovanni: The Decameron
  6. Burnett, Frances Hodgson: The Secret Garden
  7. Proust, Marcel: Swann’s Way
  8. Carroll, Lewis: Alice in Wonderland
  9. Golding, William: Lord of the Flies
  10. Wells, H.G.: The Time Machine
  11. Hawthorne, Nathaniel: The Scarlet Letter
  12. Heller, Joseph: Catch-22
  13. Hemingway, Ernest: A Farewell to Arms
  14. Cooper, James Fenimore: The Last of the Mohicans
  15. Crane, Stephen: Red Badge of Courage
  16. Hugo, Victor: The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  17. de Saint-Exupery, Antoine: The Little Prince
  18. Defoe, Daniel: Moll Flanders
  19. Tan, Amy: The Joy Luck Club
  20. Swift, Jonathon: Gulliver’s Travels

  1. Lots of goodies on this list! I hope you get one you enjoy. 🙂

    I don’t think I’ll be doing the spin, but I do want to make classics reading a priority this fall/winter.
