Spin List #2

I really should do a bit of a catch-up post. I've read Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, and Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. Each novel deserves a solid review, and I will do that. However, since it is the end of the school year for me, I've got to spend more time with what is happening at LHS.

I am currently reading Beloved by Toni Morrison, so I am in shape to decide on my next classic. I participated in the last spin even hosted by the Classics Club with A Streetcar Named Desire.This time around I am going to work on the organization of my spin list a bit more. That way it will be re-usable. The number will be published on Monday. Fingers crossed for 16 - 20!
