The Classic Spin #12

The Classics Club is hosting another spin on March 7. I will try to be more disciplined, because it seems I have only read one book on my list so far. Some of the books on the list are also part of other challenges I participate in. To hit two birds with one stone will be good for my TBR shelves. 

Here is my updated list.

1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
2. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
3. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
4. The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
5. Light in August by William Faulkner
6. Karin Lavransdotter by Sigrid Undset
7. Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann
8. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
9. Women in Love by D.H. Lawrence
10. A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
11. Richard III by William Shakespeare
12. Travels With My Aunt by Graham Green
13. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
14. The Overcoat and Other Stories by Nikolaj Gogol
15. Vile Bodies by Evelyn Waughn
16. Sweet Bird of Youth by Tennessee Williams
17. The Taming of a Screw by William Shakespeare
18. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen 
19. To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
20. Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain


  1. The Woman in White is one of all time favourites :-)

    Happy Spinning!

    1. Thank you! A lot of people say it is so good and I wanted to read it for a long time. I had a paper version, but the text was so small I could not read it. I now have it as an e-book so I am confident that I will read it this year. If not for this list for my 'What's in a name' challenge! Good luck with your list.

  2. Ahhh we both get to tackle Joyce instead :-/

    I'm a little nervous!

    1. Aha, me to. But I think I got off easier than you. Dubliners must be harder to 'attack'. Good luck!
