Hello friends!!!

In June of last year I set myself a goal to read more Russian literature…and I did!!! I read a total of 16 incredible Russian books, so I thought it would be interesting to see how they all hold up against each other. This resulted in a video where I rank all 16 Russian classics from #16 (my least favorite, though I still enjoyed it) to #1 (my absolute favorite Russian book I read in 2021)!!! I hope you enjoy this video, and hopefully you’ll get some Russian recommendations for your own reading!
***I’d love to know which Russian classics you think I should prioritize in 2022!!!***

Sending you my very best wishes,
Carolyn (and Willow) Marie 🙂
