The Classics Club Spin #13

It’s time for yet another Classics Club Spin – and although I didn’t finish the last one, I’m going to jump ahead and get myself a new spin book so I don’t have to keep staring at Dracula. I’ve thrown in a couple choices that mean I can read with someone else, but if you see we have a book in common, let me know and I’ll juggle around my list so we can read together, if you like!

Onto the list:

  1. A Clockwork Orange – Anthony Burgess
  2. Lolita – Vladimir Nabokov
  3. Casino Royale – Ian Fleming
  4. The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger
  5. The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath
  6. The Plague – Albert Camus
  7. Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck
  8. White Fang – Jack London
  9. Last of the Mohicans – James Fenimore Cooper
  10. The Maltese Falcon – Dashiell Hammett
  11. The Sound and the Fury – William Faulkner
  12. Heart of Darkness – Joseph Conrad
  13. Brave New World – Aldous Huxley
  14. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn – Mark Twain
  15. Tristram Shandy – Laurence Sterne
  16. Journey to the Center of the Earth – Jules Verne
  17. Night and Day – Virginia Woolf
  18. A Farewell to Arms – Ernest Hemingway
  19. Robinson Crusoe – Daniel Defoe
  20. The Absentee – Maria Edgeworth

Update: I’ll be reading Tristram Shandy.



  1. I’ve just finished a book where the character raved about their love for Conrad, which made me realise that I’d really like to read more of his stuff (I’ve only read Lord Jim and watched the movie with Peter O’Toole), surprising myself by how much I loved them, although they were challenging.

    Thanks for popping by and letting me know we had some books in common this spin. It’s much nicer reading along with someone else 🙂

    1. I like reading with others more too, I think especially so with the classics!

      I’ve read The Secret Agent by Conrad, and it was one of my favourite books of 2015, so I’m excited to read another of his.

  2. I want to read many of the books in your list! It’s great that you put Brace New World in the same number, so that we can do a readalong 🙂

      1. I remember it as being pretty funny, even though it’s a bit long. If you can get into the writing style, you should be okay.
