The Classics Club Spin # 22 – the result

The result of The Classics Club Spin number 22 was announced on Monday and it’s 13 which means I’ll be reading Rider of the White Horse by Rosemary Sutcliff.

I’m happy about that as I enjoy Sutcliff’s writing, but such is life and my book piles the book has been languishing here unread for a long time. Previously I’ve mainly read her books which were aimed at children, but this one is for adults. The setting is the English Civil War, or as it is more accurately called nowadays, The Wars of the Three Kingdoms as it all spilled over into Scotland and Ireland too.

If you’re taking part in this spin I hope you were lucky enough to get something you’re looking forward to reading too.

  1. I think that’s a good result. I’ve only read a few Rosemary Sutcliff books, but this is one of them and I did enjoy it. My spin book is In a Dark Wood Wandering by Hella S Haasse, which I’m really looking forward to.

    • Helen,
      You are educating me as I had never even heard of Hella S Haasse, and I have Dutch relatives through marriage! I’ll have to try to get a hold of In a Dark Wood Wandering.

  2. Katrina,
    I do hope you’ll enjoy this one, and knowing you, I’m fairly certain you will. I’ll be very interested to read your review. I have internet for the moment, but I think probably only a few more hours. I’ll email you.
