Classics Club Spin #17 Book List


I’m getting my spin selections in just under the wire! Over the weekend I announced that I was joining The Classics Club, just in time to participate in one of their spins. What is a spin? Well, you can read all about it here, but to brief: participants choose twenty books from their master list that are yet to be read, number them 1-20, and then The Classics Club chooses a random number. Whichever book on your list is paired with that number is the one that you read! Easy peasy, huh?

So here’s my list:

Author Name Title pub’d Reread?
1 Austen, Jane Northanger Abbey 1817
2 Bronte, Anne Agnes Gray 1847
3 Bronte, Anne The Tenant of Wildfell Hall 1848
4 Cather, Willa O Pioneers! 1913
5 Chopin, Kate The Story of an Hour 1894
6 Hurston, Zora Neale Their Eyes Were Watching God 1942
7 Jackson, Shirley Come Along With Me 1968
8 Lee, Harper To Kill a Mockingbird 1960 Y
9 L’Engle, Madeleine A Wrinkle in Time 1962 Y
10 Morrison, Toni Beloved 1987
11 O’Connor, Flannery The Violent Bear It Away 1960
12 Read, Miss Thrush Green (TG #1) 1959
13 Read, Miss Village School (FA #1) 1955
14 Rhys, Jean Wide Sargasso Sea 1966
15 Robinson, Marilynne Housekeeping 1980
16 Shelley, Mary Frankenstein 1818
17 Smith, Betty A Tree Grows in Brooklyn 1943
18 Undset, Sigrid The Wreath 1920
19 Woolf, Virginia Jacob’s Room 1922
20 Woolf, Virginia A Room of One’s Own 1929

To be honest, I’m really hoping that number 9 is called because I need to read A Wrinkle in Time for my book club at work! But I’d also be thrilled if A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, A Room of One’s Own, or The Wreath were to be called too!


Won’t you join along??!

  1. Their Eyes Were Watching God is an amazing book. I read it with the CC a number of years ago during a readalong. It was tremendous, so I wish you #6 🙂
