The Classics Club Spin #9


The Classics Spin is a “lottery” game in which each participant makes a list of 20 books from their Classics Club reading list, and the book that corresponds with the randomly chosen number on that list is the one that has to be read by a certain date.  In this Spin, the number will be chosen on April 6th, and the book has to be read by May 15th.  Below is my list.  I’ll post which book I’ll be reading after the 6th, and, as with the last Spin, I might do a read-along.

  1. For some reason, The Lord of the Flies appeals to me. I read it in high school and hated it but I really don’t think I truly understood it, so I’d like to give it another try. All Quiet on the Western Front is a great read but certainly not uplifting.

    Great list and I hope you have a wonderful spin!

  2. Love that you included so many wonderful children’s books! Some of my absolute favorites! Can’t wait to see what everyone gets to read!
