Diverse Stacks, Diverse Lives Reading Challenge Update

bookchallenge2016imageWith only 2 months left of the year I thought I would take a look at my chanllenge and to see how I’m doing.  Not good. Of the 54 books I have read only 13 fall into any of our reading challenge requirements.  I realize this is my fault is that I haven’t done a very good job of pushing myself to branch out from norm. The Sub-challenge I’m doing the best is the genre one and the The Sub-challenge that I’m doing the worse is the Author challenge.  It turns out I read a lot of women authors, a lot of white woman authors. Not that there is anything wrong with that but I’m missing out on some really great books.

So I have 8 weeks left to read as many diverse books as I can.  I’m in the middle of book 14 because Hammer of Thor has a Trans Character and I have 15 and 16 already picked out so at least I’ll be halfway done.  I’ve got a lot of reading to do.
