Statistics update #1

So my very first post, outlining my Rules for this Fifty Book Challenge, said that I was to have 1) no more than half of my books be re-reads, 2) at least half of the books be by women, and 3) at least one quarter of the books be by people of color. Let’s see how I’m stacking up so far…

The Invasion of the Tearling (Erika Johansen), Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (Rebecca Wells), Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik), The Lord of the Rings, part two: The Two Towers (J.R.R. Tolkien), Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church (Rachel Held Evans), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (J.K. Rowling), Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God (Elizabeth A. Johnson), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (J.K. Rowling), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (J.K. Rowling), The Thing Around Your Neck (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)

Re-reads: 5/10 (just squeaked by on that one)

Women: 9/10 (about what I expected, tbh)

POC: 2/10 (and that’s only because I’m counting one of the RBG co-authors who’s Israeli-American…let’s just say there’s room for improvement here)
