My List for The Classics Spin #2

classicsclub

The Classics Spin #2 is here! Just like the previous Classics Spin, the idea is to make a list of 20 unread books from our own lists for The Classics Club. Then by Monday May 20, The Classics Club will post a number from 1 to 20 and every participant should read a book that corresponds to the said number by July 1. Below is my list:

  1. Romeo and Juliet – William Shakespeare ***
  2. The Divine Comedy #1: Inferno – Dante Alighieri ***
  3. Metamorphosis – Franz Kafka *
  4. Sense and Sensibility – Jane Austen **
  5. The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde **
  6. An Ideal Husband – Oscar Wilde *
  7. The Canterville Ghost – Oscar Wilde *
  8. Swiss Family Robinson – Johann David Wyss *
  9. Uncle Tom’s Cabin – Harriet Beecher Stowe ***
  10. The Yearling – Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings *
  11. The Painted Veil – W. Somerset Maugham *
  12. The Pilgrim’s Progress – John Bunyan ***
  13. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn – Mark Twain *
  14. The Death of Ivan Ilych – Leo Tolstoy *
  15. Animal Farm – George Orwell **
  16. Around the World in Eighty Days – Jules Verne *
  17. Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ – Lew Wallace ***
  18. The Diary of A Young Girl – Anne Frank **
  19. Charlotte’s Web – E.B. White **
  20. Matilda – Roald Dahl **

  1. Three Oscar Wildes! We can never get bored of him, eh?
    And Uncle Tom’s Cabin is appearing here again, I wish you can read it soon, it’s rather tedious in midway, but in the end it’s really worth!

  2. I don’t even know what to say about your list. It’s just awesome! Regardless of what number pops-up, you’re going to get a great book.

    Inferno, Dorian Gray, Huckleberry Finn, and Animal Farm, in particular, are favorites of mine. Hope you get one of those! 😉
