It’s time for another Classics Club Spin.
The rules are easy: compile your list of 20 books by Sunday 18th April.
On that day a number will be randomly selected.
That’s the book you read.
You have until the 31st May 2021 to finish your book and review it.
Join in the fun by visiting the other players and commenting on their lists.
It’s a great way to meet like-minded bloggers and explode your TBR classics wishlist!

My previous 25 Spin results look like this:
While working in a small geological museum, Alexis Hartz meets his cousin Laura, who has discovered a way to enter a geode. Travelling through a vast and glittering landscape of brilliant crystals, Alexis falls passionately in love with Laura. But when they return to the ordinary world, only friendship remains. He yearns for the perfect world of the crystals, and returning there becomes a perilous obsession. But is the crystal world as real as it seems, or is his mind succumbing to its dark powers?
First written in 1864, this little known work by George Sand is a fantastical novel in the truest sense of the word.
