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!
Well another week goes by and it is almost May...can you believe it? This year is flying by! When we were kids, the summer seemed to last forever but now years just fly by. Gah, it's disturbing! Anyway I finally got back on track with my reading which is great news as I had been struggling to get anywhere recently. This week I got a few books read and things are back to normal. Yea! Need to get started on my reading list for next month and get through some more books-probably continue with my series read challenge for The Morganville Vampires and my shelf clearout with the non fiction books being targeted again. That sounds like a plan!
Being inspired by the upcoming General Election, I've been picking up some books about previous elections and the Brexit campaigns which should all be fun reads. I think I'll be reading a few political books before June 8th! I have a few more on order but they are slow in coming. Also picked up a few prepper topics to scare myself with! I've always been a bit twisted that way...
Chuckles Blogging World:
Another decent week in the world of blogging, getting the posts done that I wanted. I don't feel as though I did great in getting out to visit other blogs. For some reason I felt a bit rushed all week and short of time to get everything done. Must do better! However I am now totally finished catching up with all my reviews of my January reads! Now I can concentrate on the reviews for books I read in February. Getting really close on being up to date which is nice! Click on the link provided to go to each blog post if you missed it during the week and feel free to stop by and leave a comment!
It was a real mixture of reviewed books this week-urban fantasy, monster mayhem, humour, thriller and of course apocalypses and zombies! Hopefully, you might want to grab a couple of these books for your own reading pleasure!

Book Challenge Updates:
My challenge to start reading the non fiction books breeding on my shelves has been tough but this was a better week. I expect to finish four books which isn't bad compared to previous weeks. It's a work in progress that I'll continue with through the year.
TBR total of books I own but haven't read yet stands at 811. Not doing much to help myself get below 800. Stop buying books!!!
That's all for this week! Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog and leave comments. You guys are great!
