The ending year was certainly the most productive reading year of my life, spanning a total of 81 books. As follows, I’ve selected the very best, most memorable reading experiences.

Literary Escapades. Annie Proulx: ‚Barkskins‘

American author Annie Proulx is best known for her short story Brokeback Mountain (1997) and novel The Shipping News (1993), both of which have been adapted and received additional acclaim on the silver screen respectively. Barkskins (2016) is her newest and arguably most ambitious novel, reaching over 700 pages.
