Classics Spin 2014 Book List

The Classics Club is having an event called The Classics Spin. The event will run from February 10 to April 2. Basically, I have to choose 5 books that I am dreading to read, 5 that I can’t wait to read, 5 that I feel neutral about, and 5 others of my choice. I am posting the list today, but people who want to participate in this event have until next Monday, February 10 to post their book list. On February 10, I will be assigned a number from 1-20, and I must read the corresponding book by April 2. So here is my list:
