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!
It hasn't been the most productive week in the world. Due to extreme heatwave we've had it is too hot to work in the garden, plus we discovered a big wasp nest and I won't let my dad touch it until we get a professional in to look at it. It's also too hot to do anything in the house except sloth around so no advance on the cleaning and tidying. And with the windows open all day, we got a big hairy spider in the toilet last night. *shudders* I personally can't wait for cooler temperatures and rain! It's too hot to put lights on so my reading time has been limited but I've read two out of the three I targeted this week and I'm halfway through the third, so that's not bad at all. Mostly I've been tracking down old episodes of Ninja Warrior and American Ninja Warrior to enjoy. I love that!
On the book buying side of things it was a bit slower this week. I grabbed a few downloads free or cheap that I'll share with you. I did pick up a couple more in the Matt Wallace Sin Du Jour series which should be fun, plus some nice sounding horror. Russ Watts is an author I've never tried. I have tried and DNFed another book by Tim Waggoner but I'm ready to give him another try!
Chuckles Blogging World
Despite my sloth speed this week I've managed to keep up to date with blog visits and answering comments so that's good. I didn't get a few things done like samples and book reviews but overall it was a decent enough week for posting stuff.

I read The Extinction Files Exile and book 8 of the Carrie Vaughn Kitty Norville series, Kitty Goes to War. I'm halfway through Dream Woods which I'll finish today so it was a decent week of reading considering the heat! The next books I'll be looking at are two by Hunter Shea and Shark: Infested Waters. I'm working on a new TTT list of sea monsters to use in a week where the topic doesn't suit me.
Next week on the blog
I'm hoping to try and get a samples post done and will be going Around The Blogs. Cover Love will feature KC Tansley, Top Ten Tuesday will look at books I want to read this summer, Can't Wait Wednesday looks at Marked, Books From The Backlog is Hell Divers and Chuckles Chat will be about scenarios we love and hate about mythology.
