Happy Spring ya’ll. It’s officially here and boy am I glad!

I came home from work the other day and spotted this.

spring buds 007

I was saying the other day that spring is not officially here until I see green buds on my pecan trees. I was so excited when I looked up into the tree and spotted these beauties. Sorry I couldn’t get a better picture. Took it from my phone. Trust me, they are a pretty green.

In about a week the trees will be fully green again.  tree budding leaves photo: Tree sheading it\'s leaves Treesheadingitsleaves.gifMy spring fever is at a pitch and I’ve been cleaning gardens and mulching like crazy. It’s coming along nicely and I’ll take pictures when I’m done. Nothing fancy but I enjoy my little piece of heaven.

I’ll be hopping over to check out your Sunday posts so be sure to leave me your link!

I already have Doctor Sleep but I don’t think my sister does so I grabbed it. And I have Gone Girl as an eBook and had to have the hard cover. One Two Buckle My Shoe is a new author I want to try, and Unseen and The Bone Bed are both by authors I’ve been reading for years. I got all of these for less than ten bucks!!!!

I’d love to know and thanks so much for visiting fuonlyknew.

  1. I am so happy Spring is here!!! I wish I had pecan trees..lol. I grabbed up all three of those cozy mysteries…you are so bad for my one click addiction..lol. :)

    Have a great week!
    Week In Review

    • fuonlyknew says:

      We didn’t get any pecans last year. Weird as I have Elliots and they are the best pecans. Enjoy those new reads. LOL

  2. Red Iza says:

    What a great book haul ! But most of all, yes, burgeons are everywhere, some trees are blooming here even if they have no leaves yet, there are primroses, tulips, grape hyacinths, daisies in the lawn, my neighbor has daffodils, I’m so excited that spring is coming too ! Enjoy and have a great week 😉

  3. Lola says:

    I love seeing the green buds on trees. It’s one of the things I like about spring seeing al the trees become green again. I hope you’ll enjoy your new books and have a great week!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I have green popping out of the ground too and my lawn is already getting out of control!

  4. I love the mix of books that you get, such an eclectic mix. I’m jealous you have pecan trees, they’re one of the few nuts that I actually eat. Happy spring!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I am surrounded by pecan trees. I usually can make quite a bit of money selling them to the pecan buyers but last year I didn’t get any pecans off them. About very 5 years we have a bad crop so this fall should be a good one.

  5. I am curious about Bone Bed. You crack me up when you said I have Doctor Sleep but my sister doesn’t…because this is so me. I won’t lend them my copy..I buy them their own!!!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’m always thinking of my sister. We are both word addicts and like a lot of the same books. I kind of got away from Patricia’s books and happened across Bone Bed. It’s sitting by my bed, staring at me. LOL

  6. Wow what a nice book haul. Have fun reading. I look forward to reading what you think of The Light at the End of Judgment and Day.

  7. yvonne473 says:

    I picked up some of those freebies, too. They look so good. Enjoy them and have a great week!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I have fun and spend quite a bit of time browsing to share the freebies. Then I check them Sunday morning before I post and usually have to switch out some. Of course, I usually grab one or two. LOL

  8. katarguelles says:

    I’m happy it is spring now and time to put my boots away! But we do need the rain so hopefully we’ll have some April showers. I picked up one of the freebies, thanks for always sharing these deals!! Have a great week!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      We got flooded and now everything is growing like crazy. The battle of the weeds has begun! Enjoy your new book:) I love sharing them.

  9. You must be somewhere south of Richmond, Virginia, because I haven’t seen any green red or yellow on any trees. The daffodils are struggling to get out of the ground but that’s about it. You have a busy week ahead of you. Lots of cool stuff!!!

  10. I am so glad that it’s finally spring! It’s still pretty cold here in the UK but I hope it changes soon :)
    Thanks for stopping by my post!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I hope your spring arrives soon. It’s seventies and gorgeous here but the humidity will be arriving quickly. We have a very short spring.

  11. Christy says:

    Yay for new blooms! And garden time s always good time. Enjoy your books and have a great week.

  12. shannonmiz says:

    Whoa, very nice haul! I am also jealous of this “spring” you speak of- it snowed 6 inches here on the first day of spring! Yuck. Hope you enjoy all the new books, and have a wonderful week :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Yuck to more snow. I’ve been reading that a lot on other blogs. Seems a lot of ya’ll got snow on the first day of spring. Mother nature can be a b&!ch. LOL

  13. talksupeblog says:

    You got a pecan tree?! That is awesome!! Did you grow it from the seed?

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Nope, They were grown when I moved here. I’m surrounded by them. They provide great shade and yummy pecans but are very fragile. Their root system is just under the ground so they topple easily in hurricanes and their limbs fall all the time. You definitely don’t want to park under one!

  14. Enjoy those blooms and your new books!

  15. What is this “Spring?” Still snowing up here. Sigh, buds….

  16. I haven’t heard of most of these, but Doctor Sleep is an excellent book!! I hope you love all your new reads :)

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!

  17. Yay for Spring!! The book, The Light at the End of Judgement Day’s cover is odd…that costume is copyrighted by Ubisoft and the Assassin’s Creed symbol. O_o

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I thought I recognized something about the cover. That’s what first drew me to the book. Hmm..

  18. Nice assortment of books. Enjoy them all and your budding garden.

  19. alisbooks says:

    I have several of the books you picked up, but haven’t yet had the chance to read any of them. Glad you’re seeing signs of spring! I need to attack my flower beds!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’d need several ereaders if I grabbed every book. LOL My flower beds are coming along nicely and I’m now working on the ones in front of the house. They are more work.

  20. You got some great books – I can’t believe I still haven’t read Doctor Sleep!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      A friend told me to reread The Shining first so I did. I forgot how good that book was. Now on to Doctor Sleep!

  21. I soooo can’t wait until everything turns green. All I currently have to stare at is concrete and dead brown grass.

  22. I am SO happy spring is here! I really enjoyed Gone Girl, and the hardcover is GORGEOUS!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I took a peek inside and forced myself to stop. I have several review books to finish first. It’s so tempting. LOL

  23. Jealous of those pecan trees! the most I can do is apples. LOL. Also, that is an impressive haul for $10 especially as most are hardbacks. Here in the UK that’d be the equivalent of about $30 second-hand and $75 new.

    Here’s to the green arriving promptly (looks at the UK ‘grey’ and cries a bit!)

    Thanks for stopping by mine. xx

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I love the pecan trees. Great shade and delicious pecans for free! I did good with the haul. And all but the paperback are in excellent condition. Like new!

  24. Yay for spring!!! Pecan tries are so fun … except when trying to walk barefoot around said pecan trees. :p Great books you got this week. I’m most curious about Doctor Sleep and All The Blue-Eyed Angels.. some wonderfully creepy covers you got there!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      My dog loves pecans. He can crack them open and cleans out all of the meat, leaving shell pieces all over. They really hurt when you step on them. LOL I’m anxious to start Doctor Sleep and Blue Eyed Angels is creepy!

  25. Great haul! Thanks for sharing…and enjoy. And thanks for visiting my blog.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I love sharing and this is such a fun meme. I find so many new authors and books and like reading what happened to everyone during the week!

  26. Thanks for sharing all the goodies and picking up Doctor Sleep for me!!!! See you this weekend!!!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’ll bring it with me. Have one or two more for ya too! Can’t wait for this weekend!

  27. Fluency sounds good, and hope you enjoy. have a wonderful week

  28. Naomi Hop says:

    My winter is coming…. I am sad to see the warm weather disappear!!
    Fantastic haul btw… enjoy them all!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      After the brutal heat I usually look forward to cooler weather. But by January I’m craving spring already. LOL

  29. I’m thrilled it’s technically spring, but I hope the weather starts acting it. lol. We had snow this morning! And possibly more Friday. But tomorrow it’s to be like 60F. Crazy! LOL!

    Have a great week!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      So many people are saying they got snow on the first day of spring. Hopefully that will be the end of it and you’ll feel spring at last!

  30. Pecan trees! I am envious! (in a nice way) I’m not sure they would grow up here… but I sure love to eat them!

    Lots of freebies this week – have fun reading them all! And I look forward to your review of Fluency.

  31. Oooh that edition of Gone Girl looks really pretty! And I’ve wanted to read Doctor Sleep for a while too. Hope you enjoy all of your reads!

  32. Emma says:

    I have to pick up those Ghostly books by Tonya Kappes.
