Welcome to my new 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! 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!
This week began with the continuation of the sore neck saga but changing my posture at the computer and adjusting my sleeping position seems to have done the trick so with relief, I can avoid a trip to the doctor. Good! On the reading side of things I feel as if I'm back on track, getting four books read. I'm hoping to keep that going through the rest of this 'mood read' month and for July I plan to read authors or series that are totally new to me. I've got a lot of exciting things planned in various genres so I'm excited for that!
Blogging has been slow but I have found a few new blogs to follow which is nice! More on that in my blogging section of the post. On the book buying side of things, my mini break last week was fatal and I had a mega splurge. I bought a whole 7 book apocalypse series, a pile of older political diaries, a couple of thrillers and a few horrors. I'll save some of them for future weeks I think as I also have a few downloads. *sigh* I had high hopes of a tbr clearout this year, maybe getting down to 600 on the tbr *sniggers* but since it's June and I'm still at 800, I'd have a better chance of seeing a flying pig!!!
Chuckles Blogging World:
As I had prepared posts for the week ahead, it let me post some stuff on the blog while I had exciting things like ironing and cleaning the bathroom to do. Thrilling. I did get all comments on the blog answered, though a little later than usual but didn't get to visit as many blogs to leave comments on. I'll try to do better this week! I did find a few new blogs to follow though. *waves* to Sherry, Lark, Shaunie and the girls at Novel Knight!
Another pretty slow week for getting reviews written. I found another sheet of paper with review notes for a few books I read in March so I got them uploaded and I hope to get the rest done this week if all goes to plan. I thought I'd done the last of March weeks ago!

I break from the chosen TTT topic with a nice horror/thriller list for those humid summer nights, we look at zombies in Cover Love and I show you some of the posts I enjoyed this week on Around The Blogs With Chuckles. I have a new feature this week called Feed My TBR where I choose a topic and we all share recs for it. My first post will be about Bigfoot!

Book Challenge Updates:
My Goodreads Challenge total currently stands at 123/250. This was a much more productive week for getting books read.
TBR total of books I own but haven't read yet stands at 817.*sigh*
Mixing it up a little! I've finished the sixth Extinction Horizon book by Nicholas Sansbury Smith and the following short novella. I plan to start Jack Kilborn's Trapped tonight.
That's all for this week! Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog and leave comments. You guys are great!
