The Classics Club Spin #12


The Classics Club is doing another Classics Club Spin. In this event, all the Classics Club members are called to read a classic book within a certain amount of time. But it's not that simple. Each one who wants to participate makes a Spin list, then the Club announces a certain number and the book that it's in that list's number is the one that you have to read.


So, here is my list for spin #12:
  1. Flatland by Edwin A. Abbott
  2. A Pair of Blue Eyes by Thomas Hardy
  3. The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence
  4. The Blue Flower by Penelope Fitzgerald
  5. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
  6. The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
  7. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
  8. As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner
  9. The Vampyre; a Tale by John William Polidori
  10. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
  11. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  12. A Sentimental Journey by Laurence Sterne
  13. Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
  14. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
  15. Utopia  by Thomas More
  16. Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand
  17. The Atom Station by Halldor Laxness
  18. The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham
  19. The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
  20. Siddhartha by Herman Hesse

I can't wait to find out, which book I'll have to read until May 2, 2016.
