Classics Club Spin winner is..


#6


Westwood by Stella Gibbons

The spin has been kind to me as I was hoping for one of  'the English ladies'. I bought Westwood in 2011 after reading, and loving, Cold Comfort Farm, finally put it on my reading pile for April but still never got to it.........now is the time!

I hope the spin has been as kind to all my fellow spinners!

  1. I've not read this one, but I've enjoyed the Stella Gibbons books I have read. This is in the TBR, so I'll be interested to find out what you think

    1. I think it will be very different from Cold Comfort Farm - I'm looking forward to reading it.

  3. Nice spin result :-)
    After sharing an American classic last spin, we both get to enjoy and English lady...as I got Tess as a reread.

    Cold Comfort Farm was a lot of fun, I'll be curious to see what you think of Westwood.

  4. I haven't read Stella Gibbons, but would like to. Westwood looks very good!

    I was hoping for an "English lady", too, but got Thomas Hardy instead. I'll be starting Tess later this week.

    1. An English gentleman is the next best thing :-). I'm sure you'll enjoy Tess.

  5. Oh fun! I got The Rights of Man, which is more intimidating than fun, but at least it's good motivation.

  6. I love Stella Gibbons. Well, at least I loved Cold Comfort Farm. I haven't read any of her other books. I got Jenny by Sigrid Undset for my Classics Club Spin.

    1. I'm hoping I will love this one as much as CCF although I'm prepared for it to be very different.

  8. I am in love with that cover! I really enjoyed Cold Comfort Farm, although I think some of the humor went over my head.
