So, what did you get to read this week?

Got any recommendations?

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

  1. Still Water and the Flip look good. Yay for the beach…enjoy! It always recharges me! Hope your week is filled with good reads

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’ve now read all but a couple of Michael’s books and they are good. And I’m trying to enjoy every second of the summer that remains. September is also a hot month so plenty of time left:)

  2. Greg says:

    Happy warm weather! Love all the books- especially The Apprentice Cat cover. And Firefly Hollow and 3:00 AM too. Hope you enjoy the sunshine! We had storms and tornadoes here today, but the worst passed us by. Have a great week!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I was looking and now I see cats on a bunch of the covers. LOL I love book covers, and especially when the tell you something about the story or entice you to just grab that book! It’s good to hear the storms didn’t cause any damage. Some of ours are so scary. It’s getting to be peak hurricane time here and crossing my fingers.

  3. I love the cover of The Flip, and I don’t even know why. It’s just so cool looking. Stillwell also looks like it’ll be nice and spooky!

    Glad you’re enjoying the sunny weather :-) Have a great week!

  4. I’m curious about the Pamela Ford books…I’ve never read her, but I love those covers and titles. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      This is my first time reading her books and so glad I got the chance. They are perfect light, fun reading for the summer and I’ll gladly enjoy other books of hers.

  5. I will be stopping back to read your The Hatching review. I still have a serious eye on that book. The Orange Ripple books look interesting. I will be looking out for your reviews. We have had good weather, too, a little rainy, but cooler. Have a stellar week. :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I still have the creepy crawlies from The Hatching. LOL The first Ripple book is free. Just click on the cover. And the author gave me the second one. Should be a fun adventure.

  6. Annemieke says:

    Aaaw kitty covers. Stillwell has an interesting cover. :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I mentioned to someone else that a lot of the covers have kitties on them today. Stillwell was a good one. I’ve read most of Michael’s books and enjoyed them all.

  7. Enjoy your time outside! It’s miserable because of the smoke here, so get some rays for me. 😀

  8. Go make the most of the nice weather and have a dip for me! It’s raining here and I need a beach day badly! Enjoy your freebies, it’s fun to see the Halloween books back again :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      It’s a beautiful day today. Had a tiny morning shower but now the sun is shining. Pool day! LOL I’m looking for Halloween books and they are now cropping up. Should be a fun October.

  9. sjhigbee says:

    Incy wincy spider… You HAVE had a creepy-crawlie week:)). Glad you are still enjoying the good weather – we had a couple of good weeks, but it is overcast and threatening rain, again. Have a great reading week inbetween those swims:) This is my Sunday Post https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/08/21/sunday-post-21st-august/

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I swear I see spiders out of the corner of my eye now. LOL For real! It was nice to see the sun. Last week was torrential rains the whole time.

  10. A lot of those books look great! I actually have some of those freebies already but I still got more. I think I need a read your freebies challenge….lol.

    Have a great week and happy reading!
    Week in Review

    • fuonlyknew says:

      That’s why I mentioned you above the freebies. LOl Knew I’d get ya. And that is a good challenge. I’d do it with you!

  11. I’m not ready for Halloween books yet…lol. Though it seems that once September is here it’s suddenly Christmas and then a new year. I love fall and it always flies by..

    Enjoy your sun and water. Hard to believe August is over half over.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I really shouldn’t grab more Halloween reads as I never got to all of mine from last year. Just can’t resist. LOL And I wish time was pause for a bit so the summer would last.

  12. Got on a firefly kick there. :-) I remember there used to be so many of them, but last time I was at the Cape, it seemed they were hard to find. Do we even have them here in Florida. I sure never see them.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I miss seeing the fireflies too. I’ve only seen them a few times here, in the woods. And I don’t venture there often because of the nasty wildlife, snakes, spiders, gators…!

  13. Don’t encourage Stormi!!! LOL However, I might have to take a look at those, I can’t deny those covers!

  14. Check you out, finding freebie Halloween books for Stormi 😀 So considerate!!! I see you got yourself a whole mystery vibe going on for yourself, huh? Enjoy the good weather, finally!!! I’m glad the rain stopped!! You didn’t get flooded, did you????

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Stormi and I like a lot of the same type of stories and have this thing going about the freebies. LOL Yep, I’m rolling on the mysteries:)

  15. You always have the best list of freebies, it’s amazing!!
    Enjoy the water and the sun :) Have a fabulous week ahead and happy reading.

  16. Oooh the Flip looks kinda spooky, I shall check it out!

    Have a great week!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I like the shows about flipping houses so I knew I had to read The Flip. I’ve read many of Michael’s books and really enjoyed them.

  17. I have beach envy! Enjoy!

  18. So many good books this week! The Flip looks so good! 😀 Have a great week!

    Here’s my Weekly Recap!

  20. buffywnabe says:

  24. Queen of Someday and Firefly Beach are both on my TBR but I see several that aren’t but should be! Hope you enjoyed your Sunday. It sounds like you had a beautiful day! Have a great week!
