What’s My Next Classics Read? CC Spin #31

The Classics Club announced a spin game and I’m in! My part is to list twenty of my classics read list choices by this weekend when they will announce a number. I’m then supposed to read that book on my list corresponding to their number and post about it before the end of October.

It’s easy to pick twenty books from my list that I haven’t read yet since I just started. I’ve only read ONE so far! But which books to choose? I started by eliminating any book I already have on my shelf. Yeah…I’m giving myself an excuse to buy a new book! Then I eliminated books I’ve read in the distant past. And then I eliminated doubles, only one play and one book of poetry.

I’m excited to read any of these books next, so here we go!

  1. Flatland by Edwin Abbott
  2. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? By Edward Albee
  3. Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
  4. The Plague by Albert Camus
  5. Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
  6. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
  7. Middlemarch by George Eliot
  8. The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
  9. The Maltese Falcon by Dashiel Hammett
  10. The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
  11. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
  12. The Man Who Would be King by Rudyard Kipling
  13. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence
  14. Death in Venice by Thomas Mann
  15. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
  16. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
  17. Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand
  18. The Red and the Black by Stendhal
  19. The Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
  20. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams


  1. Looks like a great list! Both The Three Musketeers and Middlemarch are on my TBR. I tried to read Middlemarch early this year but it just wasn’t the right time. So I set it aside to try at a different time. I am fairly certain it is a book I would probably really like so I didn’t want timing to mess that up. LOL

    • Been there with many books. Sometimes I’m just not in the mood! I’m hoping for Three Musketeers, but we’ll see what they pick! 😀

  2. By the way, I’m commenting from my reader. I actually visited your blog and read your post there but it wouldn’t let me comment. So I came back to my reader so I could leave a comment. 🙂

    • Mine does that too. I love reading on my phone but it’s so wonky sometimes. I’m glad to see it’s not just me.
