My spin book is number 1: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest!
I have just realized that my last Classics Club Spin was: Five. Years. Ago! I almost didn’t believe it. How could I take so long a break from one of the coolest events of The Classics Club? I can only blame it on my everlasting tight schedules and the too-many-things-on-my-plate. But it will change now. For the first time after five years, I will be taking The Classics Club Spin, YAY!
Rule of the game:
At your blog, before next Tuesday 27th November 2018, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. On Tuesday 27th November, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by 31st January, 2019.
The idea this time is daring us to tackle huge (chunkster) books which we have been neglecting so far. My list of the second round is quite random, as it consists of many out-of-my-comfort-zone books. Thus, for this spin, I opt to list these books, along with some books I've been waiting or curious to read for some times. Here they are:
1. One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kessey
2. The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
3. This Earth of Mankind by Pramoedya A. Toer (the only Indonesian lit on my list)
4. The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
5. The Deerslayer by James Fenimore Cooper
6. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
7. Persuasion by Jane Austen
8. North and South by Elizabeh Gaskell
9. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
10. Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
11. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
12. The Warden by Anthony Trollope
13. The Crucible by Arthur Miller
14. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
15. Hard Times by Charles Dickens
16. The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
17. All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy
18. O Pioneers! By Willa Cather
19. Othello by William Shakespeare
20. The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
Based on my list, which number do you wish I get? :) I hope it would be number 3—as I am most excited to read the book (yeah… I haven’t read the number one classic from my own country—shame on me!) before the movie adaptation is released on 2019.
