Classics Club Spin #18

First, what happened to #17?


Second, for those who don’t know I’m in the progress of reading 50 classics in 4 years (that I’ve already chosen). The website that hosts the challenge does a fun game called a CC Spin, where your next classic is chosen for you. On March 9th, a random number is chosen out of 20 and then I have to read (and review) the corresponding book by April 30th.

Some harsh reality, but I completely tanked the last Spin. I got only 30% the way through the book and didn’t review it. Also things have already gone downhill for my plan this year for my blog…

But no matter what’s going on with the blog at present, it’s clear I need a successful spin after the bomb of #16!

It’s time for REDEMPTION.

See everyone on March 9th, when we figure out what book will help me gain some cred back.

  1. I hope this helps you get your reading and blogging mojo back! Of these, I’ve read and recommend Frankenstein, Mrs Dalloway, The Remains of the Day, The House of the Seven Gables, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Oh, and I think I’ve read the Hardy and Wharton too but I don’t remember them well. I put Garcia Marquez on my list too but I’m a bit intimidated. Good luck!
