Welcome to my 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!
I'm still feeling minor effects from the remains of this stupid flu thing and it's annoying me now! Nothing major, just sneezing fits, feeling tired and a few dodgy stomachs but I really have had enough of it now. I know a few of you out there are having the same issue so I think we all need some book buying therapy! There, you have permission from Chuckles to splurge! On the reading side of things I have read about 100 pages of The Extinction Trials which has been interesting so far but I'm still not getting my reading mojo back which is strange. I'm not going to stress about it but I was REALLY annoyed that Goodreads had the nerve to email me to say I was way behind in my reading and should deal with it. Who the hell do they think they are??? They have no idea why someone is behind in their reading...it could be a death in the family or the person who received the email could be sick in hospital lor something and then Goodreads stick their beak in and upset everyone? Not right!
Anyway, rant concluded. I'm sharing more of last week's mega book splurge so here they come for your enjoyment! I picked up a mixture of free and bargain books but can't remember which was which so I'm just telling you guys what I did get.
Chuckles Blogging World
Blogging was non existant at the start of the week thanks to three days of computer issues. Things are working better now but it was frustrating...you guys all know what I'm talking about! It did put me way behind for the week though.

This week things were a bit of a mess so no sampling as I had planned. Around The Blogs was a bit late in being posted and was a bit short. Cover Love featured Richard Castle, Top Ten Tuesday was part two of my look at YA books that adults can enjoy and Can't Wait Wednesday was 300 miles, an apocalypse book about nuclear war. I've also joined another thing called Books From The Backlog hosted by Carole.

I started reading The Extinction Trials on Tuesday night but I haven't got back to it in the last two days. I hope to get on with it again tonight. Liking it so far.
Next week on the blog
I hope to be back to a more normal service! It has actually been weeks of pure chaos and I have lots I need to do-like book reviews and an author feature. I can't find my notebook to write all the things out that I have planned.
