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 has gone by and I'm grumpy about the heatwave coming back. I'm just glad that I pretty much got my bedroom straightened before things got too warm again. Ugh, I'll be glad for autumn! The rest of the work in the house in on hold for a bit due to the weather and my dad feeling a bit off colour. He's getting a few tests done but the doctor thinks it is a slight issue with blood sugar but nothing to worry about. So he is banned from all work on my orders!
I haven't got a great amount of reading done and I've had to readjust my plans for the month. I've bumped Wolf by Wolf to next month as I haven't tried the author before and August is my new to me Authorfest. That means I need to squeeze in a few books by authors I have already read before the end of the month as I might need these books for some upcoming TTT lists I'm working on. More about the books I need to read later in this post. I did download a few more that sounded interesting, as a reward for having a new bookcase! *ahem*
Chuckles Blogging World
I started a new way of doing Around The Blogs which will allow me to showcase a few more blog posts each week. Basically, instead of spending Sunday hunting for things to put on the post and running out of time, I'll be adding stuff to the post each day of the week as I visit your blogs. It's working out much better!
I did my Around The Blogs post as usual. Cover Love featured Betst Schow, Top Ten Tuesday was about books I want to read this summer, Can't Wait Wednesday looked at Madness and Books From The Backlog was about The Shuddering.

Change of plan! I've got my August Authorfest next month where I plan to read completely new-to-me authors so I've bumped Wolf by Wolf until then. I need to squeeze in a few books at the end of this month by authors I have tried, so I can use them in upcoming TTT lists next month! These are what I hope to squeeze in, in the next few days.
