The Classics Club Spin number 16

I’m taking part in The Classics Club Spin # 16. I’ve already completed my original Classics Club list, reading 68 classic books since 2012, you can see them here, so I’m beginning to compile another list of 50 books to read, this spin is the perfect time for me to select at least 20 more classics that I would like to read – eventually.

1. The American Senator by Anthony Trollope
2. Nana by Emile Zola
3. The Bride of Lammermoor by Sir Walter Scott
4. Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
5. Kenilworth by Sir Walter Scott
6. The Broken Road by Patrick Leigh Fermor
7. Montaigne
8. Summer Half by Angela Thirkell
9. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
10. Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Laclos
11. Freckles by Gene Stratton Porter
12. High Wages by Dorothy Whipple
13. The Disorderly Knight by Dorothy Dunnett
14. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
15. Orkneyinga Saga
16. The Children Who Lived in a Barn by Eleanor Graham
17. A Scream in Soho by John G. Brandon
18. The Town in Bloom by Dodie Smith
19. Hungry Hill by Daphne du Maurier
20. The Black Arrow by Robert Louis Stevenson

I’m usually fairly strict about what constitutes a ‘classic’ but this list is a bit more flexible, I’m running out of unread Victorian classics in my house. I intend to read The Disorderly Knight by Dorothy Dunnett soon, so number 13 would be ideal for me. On the other hand, I’m looking forward to reading High Wages by Dorothy Whipple so number 12 would be good too, but I intend reading them all eventually so it doesn’t really matter what turns up in the spin.
