The Classics Club: My First Spin!

Tomorrow is the start of a new spin with The Classics Club. Every spin, we’re asked to pick 20 reads from our Master Classics List, they’ll then pick a random number from 1 to 20, and that will be your read for the month (well, two months). This month is meant to be a challenge, asking us to pick 5 books we love, 5 we’re intimidated by, 5 we’re neutral on, and 5 freebies….I figured I’d make my list too easy, so I asked my boyfriend to pick a few random numbers – and he definitely gave me a list up to the challenge!

  1. Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
  2. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
  3. Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
  4. A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
  5. Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
  6. This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  7. The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
  8. A Separate Peace by John Knowles (Reread)
  9. The Mysteries of Udolpho by Anne Radcliffe
  10. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackery
  11. Emma by Jane Austen
  12. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
  13. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
  14. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens (Reread)
  15. The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
  16. The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
  17. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (Reread)
  18. Nicholas Nickleby Charles Dickens
  19. The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
  20. The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

**Update** The winner is lucky #15, The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury! While all books listed are ones I want to read, I’m kind of glad I didn’t get Les Miserables my first go.

What’s on your Classics Club list?
