This is my first time doing the It’s Monday, What are you reading? meme hosted by The Book Date. It’s a chance to show other people what you are reading or what book you’re listening to.
Sketchcop – Michael W. Streed
This book is about a police officer in the USA, and his role creating images and sketches to help solve cases. It’s an interesting read, especially if you like true crime, and it’s really opening my eyes to the work that goes on in this role. In the book, Streed talks about some of the cases he has helped solve, showing the sketches compared to the real life person and detailing how he interviews witnesses and victims to get the best information he can.
This Child of Ours – Sadie Pearse
This was a Netgalley ARC and so far it tells the story of Sally and Theo, as well as their child Riley. It’s quite a slow read so far (I’m about 20% through) but Goodreads reviews are all very positive. It’s based around Riley’s gender dysphoria although I’ve not reached that part yet, but I think if I didn’t enjoy reading LGBT fiction I might have DNF’d by now – it’s just a bit slow.
I think up next will be A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara about the relationship between 4 young college friends as they move to New York and how it develops over the decades. I’ve heard positive things but it’s a bit intimidating at over 700 pages.
