My 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge: The Stats

I was going to write up a quick little summarization of what I read this year, but Goodreads actually sent me an email about that today, too!

According to Goodreads:

So, out of the 42 books I read this year:
 35 of them were fiction. 
Of them, 
20 had some kind of historical setting
5 were contemporary
2 were dystopian
2 were sci-fi/action/fantasy
4 were short story or novella collections

5 were non-fiction.
1 biography
1 family history
1 writing craft book
1 how-to on family history
1 history book

There were also:
1 book was a companion book to a fiction series.
1 was a collection of essays, including notes on fictional stories
1 was extremely journalistic fiction, so while the characters are fictional, the situation wasn’t.
1 was poetry
1 was a book of plays

37 of my 42 books were written by female authors
9 were by authors of color
