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!
Another week marches on and it is the weekend again. Tomorrow I'll be having a long lie in my bed, watching the Royal Wedding as I try and read a bit. I like the arrivals and the parade afterwards-don't generally watch the actual service. Anyway, that's my plan for tomorrow! It has been a good reading week which makes me quite happy. I haven't been keen on most of the upcoming TTT topics so I've planned a few horror lists which I'm currently reading books for. I'm reading about deadly expeditions at the moment! Still to come are more sea monsters, snow horror, horror game shows and contests etc...exciting reads to come this summer! I'm still way behind on my Goodreads Challenge by 17 books so I really need to up my game on this.
I've managed to find a few more nice looking horror books but didn't go as mad as previous weeks! But you can never have too much horror, right! I've been busy getting the living room ready for the big furniture move next week. The house has been chaos since we got that new sofa and chair before Christmas and it was bigger than expected! Well we have a plan to get everything slotted into new places and we do that next week. We have pretty much finished the kitchen as well so by next weekend, most of the work should be done. That makes me feel a lot better. Then we can deal with the garden I hope. *groans*
Chuckles Blogging World
It has been a busy week on the blog, ensuring that I have everything still up to date, finally getting time to write a prepping post and working on a book tag that I hope to share next week. I'm happy with what I got done overall.
I only managed to get one done but it's better than nothing! This is book five in the Kitty Norville series and I hope to get reviews of the next two books done next week.
Carrie Vaughn-Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand
I did my Around the Blogs as usual this week but I was too busy reading to do any samples, which is promising from the point of view of the slump being over! Cover Love featured Lindsey Duga, Top Ten Tuesday was Dino Terror, Can't Wait Wednesday Coulrophobia and Books From The Backlog featured A Thousand Yesteryears.

Cover Love looks at Stephanie Burgis, Top Ten Tuesday will be Apocalypse, Can't Wait Wednesday is They Feed, Books From The Backlog features DMZ, Chuckles Chat is about Scenarios We Love And Hate About Apocalypses, Game of Thrones Gossip is about The Tullys.
