Reading project, week ending 13 Oct 2019

What have I read this week?

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias In a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez

This is a nonfiction book about the gender data gap (i.e. the way in which data is collected mainly on men, and women are simply assumed to be the same) and how it affects women and society. I found this really interesting: I was aware of some of it already, but didn’t realise how bad it was. I would definitely read other books by this author.

Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence

This is the third (and I think final) book in the Book of the Ancestor series, which follows a young woman called Nona as she trains to be a martial nun. I enjoyed this: I like the world and Nona is a great character. I’d definitely read more by this author, or further books in the same world.
