Welcome to my new feature Chuckles Weekend Roundup where I will be looking at what books I've received, anything interesting I've done or bought or watched and other random stuff. I'll be taking a look back at what happened in my blogging world too, sort of like The Sunday Post that some of you do!
Please note that I'll be visiting your STS/SP as normal, but I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow DISQUS to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I am the only one who does that on my blog! Sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me because I deleted my account with them but I will persevere as it only happens the odd time!
Another week has passed and this is the first full week of my new weekend post. I kind of feel like the fox at the moment but he looks way more comfy than me! I'm bone tired this weekend and can't get rid of a sinus style headache so I'll probably sulk and feel sorry for myself! Or have some book buying therapy...! On the reading side of things I'm still going along at a good pace, well ahead on my Goodreads Challenge, ebook blitz and series catchup so I'm happy about that. It's nice to get some good hours in each day! I haven't been buying much but I did manage to pick up the latest books in a few series I'm following, and have downloaded some more ebooks to share so lets get down to business!
Chuckles Blogging World:
With the health stuff rumbling on I haven't totally been at the top of my game for getting everything done each week but I'm not doing too bad. I'm uploading reviews from this year at last so the review pile is being taken care of, sharing some older retro reviews of books I've enjoyed, I'm getting some great imput from you guys on various posts and I'm happy enough with blog content overall. It doesn't mean there won't be new stuff coming at some point though. It's time for a round up of what I've been doing this week! Links will take you straight to the post.
This week on the blog I featured the first two books in what is the best zombie series I have read so far-The Arisen series. Love zombies? Check them out! Also reviewed an apocalypse book by Nathan Jones. My Mini Reviews Catch Up is where I talk briefly about my thoughts on books I DNF, are too short to justify a long book review or books where I can't say much without bringing in spoilers.
Michael Stephen Fuchs-Fortress Britain (Arisen #1) 5 stars.
Michael Stephen Fuchs-Mogadishu of the Dead (Arisen #2) 5 stars.
Nathan Jones-Fuel 1 star

I have also read 73/250 books for my Goodreads Challenge. Yea!
