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 social media! I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. 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!
Welcome to autumn at The Book Cave! I love it when we reach September as the kids are well back at school, the weather starts cooling down and Winter is Coming! I just love these teo seasons as it means less things to do outside and more reading, blogging, TV watching and slothing! This week has been great for reading as I finish my Deep Blue Terror reads and get on to apocalypses! 4 short stories and 3 full length books isn't bad at all and I enjoyed every one of them which is a bonus! Mike Kraus is becoming a favourite, Rick Chesler writes good creature feature stories and I discovered good new authors in Jamie Hutchison and TR Schumer! I plan to keep watching shark, croc and sea monster films over the weekends of this month as I have a pile still to get through and I'm enjoying it! This will be Sharknado weekend!
This was a restrained week for book buying but I have ordered a few of the books I've read recently in paperback. I expect them to come next week. I am getting a few books downloaded ready for horror month in October though! I've also downloaded a few parts of the Mike Kraus serial novels which I've enjoyed so now I need to patiently wait for the omnibuses being published! This week, trying new ones by authors I've liked along with horror grabs!
Chuckles Blogging World:
On the blogging side of things I'm getting annoyed with myself for my lack of effort. I'm late replying to comments, I'm not visiting as much as I'd like, no time for Pinterest, trying to do more on Twitter for booky things and still not getting my book reviews done. I managed one this week which is really bad so I need to get motivated to write and post them. Authors need my reviews! I'm doing well with film reviews though! As always, a link is provided for each blog post from last week to take you straight to anything you missed. Comments are moderated so it might take a day or two to see it on the blog! Check out my Next Week section to see what is coming next at the Book Cave...
This week I really need to get my arse in gear and get some reviews done! I know I say it every week but I have lots of them to share and want to post them!

This week on Cover Love I featured Amber Garr, I brought you the best of the bloggyverse in Around The Blogs With Chuckles. Top Ten Tuesday continued with Hidden Gem Apocalypse Reads, Can't Wait Wednesday featured The Winds of Winter. No Chuckles Goes Sampling this week as I had no samples to fit my current Deep Blue Terror theme.
