What to read for the Classics Club Spin # 37

The Classics Club have had another spin. This time the wheel stayed on #8. The number eight on my list is House of Mirth by Edith Wharton. Since I will be travelling in May, and I have it on my ipad, I might be able to read the choosen book this time. Let's hope.

This is a book I want to read. I hope you get time to read it this month.

I have seen a few film adaptations of her books, but not read very much. Although recently I read Ethan Frome and I really did like that one. It is a novella, and the story stayed with me for quite some time. I can agree though that her writing might feel a little bit old fashioned these days.
