It's Monday the 19th of August 2013! What are you reading?

It's Monday! What are You Reading! is a weekly hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. This weekly is meant to keep you people updated on what I read the last week and what I am planning to read the upcoming week.

I went to Utrecht on the 17th to see an interview with Neil Gaiman. He read some of his book The Ocean at the End of the Lane too and it was great. In the end I got my copy of Ocean signed and bought American Gods and got that signed too and am still impressed by the whole thing.






On Friday my other half celebrated his birthday so we had guests in the evening. It has been very busy the whole week with organizing things and I did not read as much as I had hoped for. I finished  Just What Kind of Mother are You? by Paula Daly and In The Moors by Nina Milton. Both are books about missing children which always keeps me reading because you have to know. Reviews are to come later this month.

Oh, how exciting to see Neil Gaiman and get some books signed!

I will add 'Just What Kind of Mother are You?' to my TBR. It looks like my kind of book.

Have a wonderful week, Ciska, I hope it will be a little more quiet so you get more time to read.

Here's my It's Monday!... post.

What a great time you had in Utrecht. I wasn't sure whether to go and when I found out (too late) that I needed a ticket, that was that.

Have a great week!

The worst part was that in the end everybody was able to get it. The reservations where for the seats but without you could get in but had to stand..

The Bones of Paris sounds good but I will admit I like her Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes books best. Here is my Monday Report. Have a great week!

That's awesome that you got to see Neil Gaiman! :D I unfortunately missed him when he was in Toronto because of an exam :(

The two books you read about missing children intrigue me. I love a suspense tale! Curious to read your take on them. Enjoy your week!
