The result of the latest Classics Club Spin was revealed today.
The idea of the Spin was to list twenty books from my Classics Club list, number them 1 to 20, and the number announced by the Classics Club represents the book I have to read before 29th January 2023. The number that has been selected is…
And this means the book I need to read is…
Wild Strawberries by Angela Thirkell
Pretty, impecunious Mary Preston, newly arrived as a guest of her Aunt Agnes at the magnificent wooded estate of Rushwater, falls head over heels for handsome playboy David Leslie. Meanwhile, Agnes and her mother, the eccentric matriarch Lady Emily, have hopes of a different, more suitable match for Mary. At the lavish Rushwater dance party, her future happiness hangs in the balance.
This is not one I was particularly hoping for, but I’m happy enough with that result. I liked but didn’t love the first book in this series, High Rising, and was assured that some of the later books are better, so I’m looking forward to continuing with them.
Have you read this? What did you think of it? And if you took part in the Spin which book did you get?
