It is apt that I can see off winter in this challenge with a disturbing battle with nature as a grp of English men in 1935 try to conquer the dangerous kanchenjunga. As narrator Stephen struggles with fraternal rivalry the history of the mountain starts to haunt him + as the weather gets worse, the claustrophobia + terror increases. Atmospheric in title + prose.

While researching and writing this powerful novel, Powers moved to East Tennessee and decided to stay. He opened my eyes and soul to the understanding of how the lives of trees and humans are so deeply intertwined.

I've just finished listening to the beautiful narration by Tilda Swinton. The prose is just exquisite, helping you stand alongside Nan Shepherd as she explores the Cairngorms over her lifetime. As a bonus there's also an hour long summary of Nan Sheperds legacy and influence by Robert Macfarlane

This about the first American women team expedition to Annapurna mountain. This covers all minor details starting from fund raising till the end of summit. Gender bias, conflicts with the sherphas, both mental & physical challenges of the summit are presented in a honest way. The unpredictability of the nature, mystery surrounding the mountain made it mesmerising. Cont…

Blackink_WhitePaper Author provides us with multiple view point by referring to the journal of fellow team members. writing is slow paced, at times too quick with adrenaline rush, some time thought provoking similar to their summit. In this pandemic time this book took me to Himalaya. 5🌟#nonfiction2022 #aestheticallymatched #adventurous #bookspin #bookspinbingo #travel 5mo

This wasn't easy to narrow down.

Thanks for the tag @squirrelbrain. I think these 21 will stick with me the most.

I'm not going to tag anyone. I'd like to invite anyone who wants to share their #Top21of21 to do so. 😁😉

julesG Sorry, forgot to tag you, @Cinfhen. ☺️ 6mo
Centique Yay! Becky Chambers and Martha Wells and the Guncle! I‘m on hold for Djinn and I just know it is going to be fantastic if it made your top 21 🙌🙌 6mo
julesG @Centique Can highly recommend it. Also the short stories set in this AU. Djinn was 99c on Kindle the last two weeks, here in Germany. Maybe it's 99c for you, too? Then you wouldn't have to wait. 6mo

TrishB A couple of those were just outside my picks! 6mo
julesG @TrishB not all of them are 5 or 4 star reads. I tried to pick the ones that will stay with me the longest. That said, I did not add Project Hail Mary or any of The Chronicles of St Mary's - both dominated this year in their own way. 6mo
Ruthiella @julesG I read the story and novella that precede A Master of Djinn this year and loved them! I hope to get to the novel next year. @Centique I think your will love it! 6mo
BarbaraBB Am awesome list! I am screenshotting again. 6mo
Cinfhen Thanks for the tag 😘some excellent inspiration 6mo
Cinfhen I‘m planning on reading at least 3 from this list next year!! 6mo

I watched, from the shoulder of Morrone, the Cairngorm mass eddy and sink and rise (as it seemed) like a tossed wreck on a yellow sea. Sky and the wrack of precipice and overhang were confounded together. Now a spar, now a mast, just recognisable as buttress or cornice, tossed for a moment in the boiling sea of cloud.
