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 of this hot spell has been survived and there is no end in sight to it. I'm getting grumpier by the day and wishing for winter again. I'm not designed for weather like this and I can't get on with tasks around the house that need doing. I'm rearranging furniture in another room-at least, I want to but it's too hot to shift any of it. Too many things needing done at the moment but we'll just have to muddle on. Other than that, nothing really of note to report on.
On the reading side of things I'm pleased to have read one novella and three books this week so that has been productive in spite of the weather. I'm keeping up ok with answering comments left on my blog and blog visits but I haven't got anything much done other than posting the regular posts, which is annoying. I just didn't get time to do any book reviews this week or the samples I hoped to deal with. Maybe next week! So to the books I got! Iread a couple of powder mage short stories and that intrigued me to get Promise of Blood which, being fantasy, is out of my comfort zone. In fact, the first three downloads are all new authors to me. The other three are authors I'm giving a second chance to.
Chuckles Blogging World
It was a decent week without being earth shattering and I'd liked to have got a couple of book reviews done. I'll try again next week!
none this week
I went around the blogs as normal but no samples post which I'd hoped to do this week. Cover Love was KC Tansley, Top Ten Tuesday was a last minute change of mind about books connected to America, Can't Wait Wednesday was Marked and Books From The Backlog featured Hell Divers.

Chuckles Chat was about scenarios we love and hate about mythology and Chuckles Chuntering was a moan about the weather again and wishing for a lottery win!

This week I read four books which was quite good going. I read Hunter Shea's Jurassic Florida, PK Hawkins Shark, Tim Waggoner's Teeth of the Sea and Tim Meyer's Sharkwater Beach. I'm pleased with that. Next up are going to be a couple more horror selections!
Next week on the blog
I'll be doing my usual regular posts and book reviews!
