Classics Club Spin #18

from The Classics Club

What is the spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Wednesday 1st August 2018, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.
This is your Spin List.
You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the month.
Try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you have been putting off, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favourite author, re-reads, ancients, non-fiction, books in translation — whatever you choose.)
On Wednesday 1st August, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by 31st August, 2018. We’ll check in here then to see who made it the whole way and finished their spin book!

I'm been sorely neglecting my Classics Club list, so this is an excellent way for me to squeeze more classics into my schedule. I like this idea!
Here's my list:
  1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
  2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
  3. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
  4. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
  5. The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
  6. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  7. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
  8. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
  9. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  10. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  11. Lord of the Flies by Sir William Golding
  12. Dante's The Inferno
  13. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank
  14. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
  15. All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
  16. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
  17. Night by Elie Wiesel
  18. Macbeth by Shakespeare
  19. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  20. The Call of the Wild by Jack London
