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!
Another week passes and we are marching through October if you can believe that. It is surprisingly mild here with a cool tinge and it looks like we're evading the storm expected to hit England. Last night I was safe and cosy in my warm house, reading part two of A Storm of Swords and loving it! This is the best book so far in the series and I'll be reading more today. Yes the books are long and each will take a while to read but I do feel fully engaged in my reading again which is more important! Due to my Game of Thrones 'stuff' splurge during the week, there hasn't been much book buying going on, just a few downloads from the last couple of weeks that look interesting.
Chuckles Blogging World:
It was one of those running through treacle weeks again but I got most of what I needed done. I'm averaging two posts a day which is fine and that might go up with book tags (I'm working on a few) and films I hope to get watching. Horror month has been a bust and I just started another Game of Thrones book instead! Well, it is kind of horror isn't it...? Also, I've been tagged in a blog sharing frenzy on Twitter and there are several hundred messages to look at and a ton of blogs to check out! I haven't had time so far but I 'hope' to check some out today! I'm already following a few new people on bloglovin' through it and will be adding to that this week I hope! It's very exciting so thank you Dragonfly for adding me!
There was one review I intended to do this week that I never got round to but other than that I got a few done. With my reading slumps recently, I'm not far behind on my reviews now so I better get my reading into high gear again!
Paul Mannering-Hell's Teeth
Hunter Shea-Loch Ness Revenge
James Herbert-The Rats
No sampling this week again as I was in a Game of Thrones reading frenzy! I went Around The Blogs With Chuckles as usual, Cover Love featured Angela Hunt, Top Ten Tuesday looked at Ten Favourite Drama TV Shows, and Can't Wait Wednesday featured a new apocalypse series by James Hunt.

Last weekend, most of the UK were preparing for the tail end of Hurricane Maria and I posted a bit about that and what I was doing to get ready. I also talked about a Game of Thrones inspired shopping splurge!

Currently Reading/Next Up:
After a massive reading slump I was finally able to finish part one of A Storm of Swords and I'm currently reading part two which so far is the best I've read. I plan to finish this by Monday maybe then see what I feel like doing!
Next Week on the Blog:
Next week I'll be going around the blogs as usual with maybe a few new blogs being included for the first time! Cover Love features Kristen Painter, Top Ten Tuesday is Reality TV shows I like, Can't Wait Wednesday features some more apocalypse fun, Game of Thrones Gossip is looking at Gendry, Hot Pie and Jaqen H'Ghar, while Chuckles Chat discusses anthologies. I hope to do a few book reviews, maybe a couple of film reviews if I get any watched this weekend and I'm working on a few book tags which is fun! I've been tagged for a blog award so I'll get that posted this week too!
