Are you intimidated by classic fiction as a genre and looking around for motivation? Have you been looking for a way to conquer the classics on your shelf? Look no further.
If you have been following Book & Corner, you would very well know by now that I am a huge classics fan. If you are somewhat like me, you would understand when I say this that there are 20 classics on my shelf waiting to be read. I’m guilty of not picking up classics this year so The Classic Club’s 25th Spin event is a perfect opportunity to fix it.
The rules are simple. To join in list any 20 books that remain on your shelf before Sunday, 22nd November 2020. On that day, the club will announce the winning number and then all you have to do is read the corresponding book by Sunday, 30th January 2021.
I know I am late for this list but I hope Jessica over at The Bookworm Chronicles would excuse me. Without further ado, let’s get started.
- Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
- Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
- The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- Villette by Charlotte Brontë
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Emma by Jane Austen
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

- Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
- Dracula by Bram Stoker
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
- Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
My list has been largely dominated by Victorian classics and other books that have been staring at me from ages. Out of these mentioned, I am rooting for Emma, Fathers and Sons and Little Women.
Have you read any books from this list? Which book do you think would be the perfect fit for this classic Spin event?
